Walt Disney and Walden Media have chosen the actor who will voice Aslan the Lion. X2: X-MEN UNITED actor Brian Cox will take the commanding role in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, directed by Andrew Adamson. The film is based on the first published book in C.S. Lewis classic childrens series.
Producer Mark Johnson said, "Brian has an amazing resonance to his voice, a certain majesty, which suits Aslan perfectly... I've always found Brian to be so versatile...we first talked to Brian about the role of Aslan maybe nine months ago, and I'm glad it worked out.
