LOOK: Narnia stars reunite for Susan Pevensie actress’ 30th birthday
The stars of the film adaptations of C.S. Lewis’ fantasy series “The Chronicles of Narnia” got together to celebrate the 30th birthday of Anna Popplewell.
Fans will never forget how the Pevensies — Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy (Georgie Henley) — ruled the Kingdom of Narnia 13 years ago during the series’ first film, “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe”, released in 2005.
And it seems they never forgot about each other as well, holding a mini-reunion to mark the birthday of Popplewell on Sunday, Dec. 16.
“Almost 15 years ago I met these three and my life changed forever,” Moseley wrote via Instagram last Monday, Dec. 17. “I’m so proud of the films we made. A dream come true.”

Popplewell, clad in red, channeled the beauty her character, Queen Susan, is known for. Her “siblings” meanwhile, were laid-back as they smiled for the camera.
A birthday celebration will not be complete without a cake — Popplewell’s delight was evident when the lights were turned off and the cake’s candles lit. The Pevensies were joined by Popplewell’s real brother and “Peter Pan” actor, Freddie.
“Older! Wiser? Still blurry,” Henley said, sharing blurry photos of them in the past and during their mini-reunion.
Moseley and Popplewell were last seen in Narnia in the second installment of the series, “Prince Caspian” in 2008. Meanwhile, Keynes and Henley returned for the third film, “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in 2010.
The series’ sequel, “The Silver Chair” was reported to be in the works in 2016. In October this year, streaming giant Netflix announced it will develop both films and TV series for the beloved Narnia series.
