Before you can film a fantasy movie, you must create an authentic world. What kind of weather is found within, what would the buildings be made of, what creatures populate its land, and what is the history behind its people? For every stunning frame of film, there have been countless hours of work to create such majesty. And what a task to bring to the screen one of the world's most beloved children's series, C. S. Lewis's The Chronicles of Narnia. This book, written and designed by the artists of the Academy-Award winning special effects house Weta Workshop, chronicles the stunning concept drawings, designs, and props that helped director Andrew Adamson shape the world of Narnia in cinematic glory. With detailed photography, hundreds of never before seen drawings and sculptures, and commentary from the artists and craftspeople of the workshop, discover the intricate work and exhaustive research and detail that went into each piece, prop, and weapon made by Weta Workshop for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. This beautifully illustrated collector's edition follows the journey of ideas, from initial sketches through finished designs to final, exquisitely hand-crafted props, armor, and miniatures. Witness firsthand the intricate models for the creatures in the White Witch's army, the difference between a Boggle and a Harpy, how Mr. Tumnus evolved, how dwarves and Centaurs were armored, and much, much more. The Crafting of Narnia provides a unique window into the movie-making experience.

For the first time ever, the epic, in-depth story of the creation of one of the most famous fantasy worlds ever imagined—an illustrious compendium that reveals the breathtaking craftsmanship, artistry, and technology behind the magical Middle-earth of the blockbuster film franchises, The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy and The Hobbit Trilogy, directed by Peter Jackson. The Making of Middle-Earth tells the complete story of how J. R. R. Tolkien’s magic world was brought to vivid life on the big screen in the record-breaking film trilogies The Lord of the Rings Motion Picture Trilogy and The Hobbit Motion Picture Trilogy. Drawing on resources, stories, and content from the archives of the companies and individuals behind the films, much of which have never appeared in print before, as well as interviews and a foreword by director Peter Jackson and key members of the Art Department, Shooting Crews, Park Road Post, and Weta Digital teams who share their personal insights on the creative process, this astonishing resource reveals: How the worlds were built, brick by brick and pixel by pixel; How environments were extended digitally or imagined entirely as computer generated spaces; How the multiple shooting units functioned; How cast members and characters interacted with their environments. Daniel Falconer takes fans from storyboard concepts to deep into the post-production process where the films were edited, graded, and scored, explaining in depth how each enhanced the films. He also discusses how the processes involved in establishing Middle-earth for the screen have evolved over the fifteen years between the start and finish of the trilogies. Going region by region and culture by culture in this fantasy realm, The Making of Middle-Earth describes how each area created for the films was defined, what made it unique, and what role it played in the stories. Illustrated with final film imagery, behind-the-scenes pictures and conceptual artwork, including places not seen in the final films, this monumental compilation offers unique and far-reaching insights into the creation of the world we know and love as Middle-earth.

As I walked away from New Buildings, I found the man that Lewis had called "Tollers" sitting on one of the stone steps in front of the arcade. "How did you get on?" he asked. "I think rather well. I think he will be a most interesting tutor to have." "Interesting? Yes, he's certainly that," said the man, who I later learned was J. R. R. Tolkien. "You'll never get to the bottom of him." Over the next twenty-nine years, author George Sayer's first impression about C. S. Lewis proved true. He was interesting; but he was more than just that. He was a devout Christian, gifted literary scholar, best-selling author, and brilliant apologist. Sayer draws from a variety of sources, including his close friendship with Lewis and the million-word diary of Lewis's brother, to paint a portrait of the man whose friends knew as Jack. Offering glimpses into Lewis's extraordinary relationships and experiences, Jack details the great scholar's life at the Kilns; days at Magdalen College; meetings with the Inklings; marriage to Joy Davidman Gresham; and the creative process that produced such world-famous works as the classic Chronicles of Narnia, Mere Christianity, and The Screwtape Letters. This book is an intimate account of the man who helped-and through his works, continues to help-generations hear and understand the heart of Christianity.

Fourteen hundred years after the millennial reign of the King, the world has strayed from the principles that led to humankind's greatest era: the Great Generation. The principal system of faith, Royalism, has become a politically oriented belief system. Responding to the growing threat to their beliefs, factions of the Royalist Social Movement seek to restore the principles and former glory of the Great Generation. High above Terra, connected by tethers stretching from the surface to sixty-four thousand kilometers in space, is the civilian space station City of Heaven-home to more than a million citizens. A futuristic Tower of Babel, City of Heaven is humankind's greatest achievement. But, Ar'chaists, a radical sect of Royalism, are determined to force the world to bend its knee, with Ar'chaists assuming the Regency. In a single act of terror, they sever the tethers connecting City of Heaven, killing nearly all of its inhabitants and sending the city on a collision course with Terra, where millions more will surely die. In space and on Terra, survivors battle for control and the polifaith movement reaches a crisis that threatens to unleash a new global faith-cleansing that will rid the world of Royalism once and for all.
