If for some odd reason Will does not come back, SC will do horribly. The audience has already connected and fallen in love with Will Poulter as Eustace. To recast would mean that the audience would have to reconnect with a strange actor, who would unavoidably be compared to Will and complained about. The original is almost always more liked.

Jill is supposed to be fairly small anyway, what's wrong with Will being tall? They'll just have to find a Puddleglum who's even taller. :)

And if they can't find a taller Puddleglum, they can always find someone who uses stilts or use specially made shoes and cgi the legs... Didn't they make special shoes for Tilda to make her taller anyway?

Well a normal sized girl would still be considered small next to Eustace. And also *sneaky grin* you could make the set not to scale, and slightly bigger to make it seem that the two are still kids :D

I always thought of Jill as being taller than Eustace.

puddleglum32, I also thought she might be taller, or at least the same height as Eustace, because I think that she just seems like a tall person, thats the image i get in my head, like a LoTR type character, but obviouslyy not at all like in LoTR, just there are certain moments when that is the sort of air I got.
Narnia is childhood...

Seriously, just give the kid the orange. He needs his vitamin C!

I had always pictured them as being around the same height for some reason. However, I think in my mind I picture them as being younger than they actually would be on film, so in that case, I think Jill would be shorter than Eustace on film. This is especially true as Will has had a growth spurt. I also think that if they recast Eustace, the film would not do as well. I would still go see it, but would probably not like it as much if Will wasn't in it :(

Those of you who think Jill might be taller probably saw the BBC Narnia's, in which she is taller. Personally I always found that rather odd, as in the book it gives the impression that she's on the smaller side. All the same, I really liked the girl who played Jill in BBC's Silver Chair. :)

Camilla Power is awesome!!
I agree, I think that Jill should be a little shorter if not the same height as Eustace and make the set a little larger than life...

I think she would be taller just because of the way she talks. She has the courage to snap at him.

You have a good point there puddleglum! Just a thought, Benedict Cummerbatch as puddleglum? (I know, wrong thread, I'll post the idea there too)

Since I have FINALLY seen the movie (VDT), I can at last relate to you all. Will has got to play Eustace in SC! He made VDT; without Will, VDT would have been awful. Without Will, SC will be terrible!

I still haven't seen VDT *shock horror etc* Yet, I can still agree, they need a familiar character to lead on into the next film

No-one has posted for a while, so is there an update on the Will Poulter playing Eustace status? Also is SC next or not????

Jill_Pole, while I don't think that The Magician's Nephew has been green-lit yet, all signs seem to point to the fact that MN will, in fact be the next Narnia movie. (You can read about it here and here.)

If that's the case, we probably won't know for a while whether Will Poulter will be in SC, but I hope he is. :)
