It's time for the witches to get into the center of attention now. New Line Cinema has brought in a new featurette for its upcoming fantasy "The Golden Compass" which takes focus on the group, particularly their queen, Serafina Pekkala.
Titled "Flying with Witch" and available on MSN Video, the featurette is also able to be reached through a link on AceShowbiz's The Golden Compass Trailer page. Content includes the interviews with writer/director Chris Weitz and actress Eva Green, who plays Serafina, plus behind-the-scene footage of the flying sequences.
Set for a December 7, 2007 release in theaters nationwide, "Compass" is based on the first book in Phillip Pulman's "His Dark Materials" trilogy. Regarding the name of Serafina Pekkala, Pullman was learned to originate it when he browsed through a Finnish telephone directory.
