‘Chronicles Of Narnia: Silver Chair’ Movie To Cast Another Eustace? Will Poulter No Longer Fit As Eustace?
Will Poulter was said to be no longer included in the upcoming “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” movie because of his current age and height. Who would replace Poulter then? Read on to know more.
Will Poulter (real name William Jack “Will” Poulter) is an English actor who played as Eustace Scrubb in “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” (2010).
Poulter was 16 years old then when he starred in the movie-adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ novel.

Fast forward in 2015, Will Poulter is now 22 years old and at least 6 feet tall. Because of this, Narniafans.com cited rumors that he is going to be replaced by another actor.
Although still a rumor, it was said the recast “makes sense” since Eustace Scrubb is a teenager in “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair” novel.

After the “Silver Chair,” Eustace and Jill would show up in “The Last Battle” in which Eustace would be around 16 years old.
