Music, Movie Updates: Tori, RyG, Peter Janson, Billy Sherwood; Maya Calendar Event and Narnia begins shooting

Hello World Family,
Falcon here reporting from NetRoots. I am running around like crazy, and I hope I get to see you at the bloger-fest, but I have collected some wonderful entertainment news that must be shared. See the latest from some great artists, including a 10 year old artist who will touch you with her profound insight.

There is an workshop in Pittsburgh concerning the Mayan Calendar and the 2012 Prophecy, actually be held by people who would know: Mayan and Taino people! Check that out, too if you are in the area. This will be an extraordinary event.

We will be in touch!

The New NARNIA Movie Begins Filming

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER Began filming July 27 in Australia’s Gold Coast

From Walden Media:

We are excited to announce that the third installment in our “Narnia” series, “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” began filming today in Queensland, Australia. For the next four months, our production team will be hard at work on set bringing C.S. Lewis’ imaginative vision to life. We’re filming at the beautiful Warner Roadshow studios in Australia’s gorgeous Gold Coast. It is home to the largest water tank facility in the Southern Hemisphere which will help create the epic high seas adventure.

This time around - Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their pesky cousin Eustace Scrubb - find themselves swallowed into a painting and on to a fantastic Narnian ship headed for the very edges of the world. Joining forces once again with their royal friend Prince Caspian and the warrior mouse Reepicheep, they are whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands, and beyond. On this bewitching voyage that will test their hearts and spirits, the trio will face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. Only an entirely uncharted journey to Aslan’s Country - a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader - can save Narnia, and all the astonishing creatures in it, from an unfathomable fate.

We’re excited to be surrounded by many familiar and new faces on set. New to the team, veteran filmmaker Michael Apted will direct the new adventure. Returning cast Georgie Henley as Lucy, Skandar Keynes as Edmund, Ben Barnes as Caspian and Liam Neeson as Aslan will join a new cast mate Will Poulter as cousin Eustace.
While relinquishing the director’s chair this time out, our friend, filmmaker Andrew Adamson will return as one of the film’s three producers, reteaming with his colleagues from the first two “Narnia” films—Academy Award®-winner Mark Johnson and Philip Steuer. Also back for another Narnian adventure are Executive Producers Perry Moore and Lewis’ stepson, Douglas Gresham.

In the coming months, we’ll update regularly with news from the set, exclusive photos and special offers to registered users. We hope you take this ‘voyage’ with us.
