Too tall so cut him? That's absurd! He is a great actor and if you change actors because the other was "too tall" it just ruins the character!

Most perfectly agreed, ~DaughterOfEve~!

Will Poulter IS Eustace; if they change him they will have many most-unhappy fans :((

All the Pevensie children aged quickly and are all a lot older in the film PC then they were in the book. The same thing will happen with Will Poulter. He still looks the same (other than height), so I don't think there should/will be a problem.

I think that the best reason to keep Will as Eustace is because of continuity. I mean, no one ever respects a sequel that re-cast a main character! I'm talking about live action actors, not voice actors. I mean, they might get away with replacing Liam, but replacing a face is kind of really a bad idea.

it would also be hard to find a person who looks enough like him because eustance is only a couple months older in silver chair its not like he has aged 20 years so it is near impossible to find someone that looks enough like him and who is as talented as he is
watch me on youtube doing narnia monologues

I would hate for him to be switched. for alot of people I've talked to Will Poulter was their favorite part of VDT and height shouldnt be a big deal, Skandar grew 6 inches on the set of LWW, they tilted the camera, if they need him desparately to be shorter, cant they do that too?

Why would Poulter's age be that important?
William Moseley was 21 in PC, when in the book he was 15 or so?

Thats a good point "Rilian The Disenchanted"
They just need a Jill to balance the growth of Eustace :)
And the growth of Eustace came from the voyage to Narnia, and in the book it does say he has grown and changed since "last term"

And besides, Eustace is their link- the Pevensie's are gone and Will is who people will be looking for. If they keep him, they've got my ticket for SC already! If not... X( :( :(( :(( :((

In every film I have seen with re-cassting in it, Re-casting never works! Especially as Will Poulter is an AMAZING actor and as his performance, fan reception and award nominations tell us, he was one of the highlights of VDT.
Also , i'm fed up of seeing short actors/ actresses! No offesnce ment to shorter people, but why is there some rule that film stars can't be tall? Now, most young actresses are really quite short. I think that Will should play eustace in SC and the Jill they cast should be taller too. It would be a devistating blow to the Narnia franchise if they recast such an amazing character! Plus, as others have said, it would alienate a lot of people...
As far a LB goes, if they do make it, an older cast may be more suiting for a darker theme, as with harry potter- they were originally childrens books, but I can't imagine any parent letting their yong child watch the most recent Harry Potter film if it were the first one, if you see what i'm trying to say?
Narnia is childhood...

CHARLOTTE ROSE, you are so right!
He is an amazing actor, and don't worry there as tall actors: Benedict Cumerbatch, Rupert Grint, Stephan Fry, Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale, Brad Garrett, Hugh Laurie. For actresses there's Nicole Kidman, Uma Thurman, Sigourney Weaver (For your info, I looked some of these up on the web!)
I am personally 5"7 (nearly, getting there) and I agree that Jill should be tall, and Puddleglum really! tall (might be a little problem, maybe http://www.imdb.com/name/nm2017161/)
And I also like your idea about the HP/LB darkness
AWESOME THINKING :D

Thanks Jill Pole! It is nice to see taller actresses around as there are ALOT of shorter ones (not that anything is wrong with that :) )
I'm around 5''7 too, so i guess we are kind of seeing this from the same point of view!
Also, I was thinking more about the HP/LB similarities and there are quite a few really, so maybe that is a direction they might go in!
thanks :)

I think it is actually quite rare to have a short actress (unless you count Snooki, which I personally don't!)
I measured other day, I am 167cm so I have still a little bit to grow :D

I think that if they are going to finish the Narnia movies, they will have to also realize that it is a children's book, and even though some of the themes in the books and films are quite grown up, the underlying story is for children
So they will have to balance the darkness quite a lot, and maybe use the music or some CGI to bring in the darkness.
The books also have value for a teenage audience, but that is lost on most of the teens of today :(

Well they were weird, its better than most of the other books around then:
for example, "The Little White Horse"
Oh, I'm 13, I am moving from London, everyone loves me, I have a special room in a castle... etc etc....
Narnia had morals and the contemplation of good and evil!
