Movie fans and readers around the world know the land of Narnia. But many fans don't know the creative force who created this beloved fantasy - C.S. Lewis. C.S. Lewis: Beyond Narnia, aired on December 9, 2005 on the Hallmark Channel, and will release on DVD through Gaiam on March 28, 2006.

The Hallmark Channel premiere of the movie coincided with the blockbuster release of Walt Disney Pictures’ The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The release of Beyond Narnia on DVD will also coincide with the DVD release of Disney’s Narnia movie.

The one-hour movie, which was filmed in many of the actual locations in England where Lewis studied, lived, and worked, is a dramatic reenactment of his life that explores the inspiration behind The Chronicles of Narnia, and other some of his other works.

“In this wonderful, witty, dramatic movie, Lewis speaks to us of his life, friendship, love, spiritual journey, and his profound tales of Narnia,” says Janet Stokes of the Hollywood Film Advisory Board, which recently awarded its “Award of Excellence” to the movie, in a press release.

Norman Stone, who won an International Emmy and two BAFTA Awards for Shadowlands, wrote and directed the docudrama. Anton Rodgers, seen in The Merchant of Venice and Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, stars as C.S. Lewis. Diane Venora, who has appeared in the films Heat, Romeo and Juliet, Surviving Picasso, and on the Emmy-winning series Chicago Hope, co-stars as Joy Gresham.
