The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe is a 2005 fantasy film co-written and directed by Andrew Adamson, based on the 1950 novel The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, the first published and second chronological novel in C. S. Lewis's children's epic fantasy series, The Chronicles of Narnia.

In 2004, Amy Lee claimed to be working on music for the film,[1] but that the music was rejected by the studio for being "too dark" and "too epic."[2][3] However, the producers of Narnia stated that she was never asked to compose any music for the film, whose score was written by Harry Gregson-Williams, and that "no Evanescence music was planned for the soundtrack."[2]

Together Again (previously known as The Narnia Song) was written for the film, but rejected.[4] A long instrumental piece written for The Narnia Song was used to segue into Good Enough.[5] Lacrymosa was written for the film's opening scene in mind, but Amy said the producers of Narnia "wanted something original" as the song was built around Mozart's Lacrimosa sequence from his Requiem.[6] The latter two songs were included on The Open Door and the former was released as a charity single to raise funds for the 2010 Haiti earthquake.[7]

Amy also claimed she was offered a small role in the film, which was in production in New Zealand. "They were like, 'Do you want to do a cameo?' And I was like, 'Hell yeah! Let me die. I want to be somebody who gets murdered.' So I don't think that's going to happen."[1]

In a 2007 interview, she mentioned again the song — really Together Again — she wrote for the movie:

Vin1.jpg I was just a little misguided about what they wanted. I did write music for the movie, and I still have a song in my back pocket that hasn't been released that I love, which was originally intended for that movie. But it was darker than what they wanted. They wanted to not scare kids, and I can understand that now after seeing the movie. But when we were talking about it beforehand, I think they were telling me a little bit what I wanted to hear - that it was going to be very dark and very Lord of the Rings and all this stuff, and it turned out to be a lot more childlike. The way I was writing was a lot bigger and more epic and dark than all that. I still think it would have been a beautiful song in the movie, but it didn't make me bitter. It's just one song in the bank.[8] Vin2.jpg
