Narnia's minotaur and centaurs use PU armour

By Liz White, UT staffWeapons and armour for the creatures which appear in Disney’s about to be released version of CS Lewis’ children’s tale, “The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe,” take advantage of the versatility of polyurethane, able to mimic the appearance of metal but be light enough to be worn for long periods. Made in New Zealand, the film relied on local film-set and special-effects experts the Weta Workshop, who also worked extensively on the effects in the three-part film sequence made from JRR Tolkein’s Lord of the Rings. The urethane weapons of Narnia’s warring creatures include, for example, the Minotaur’s one-handed sword, inspired by the Kopesh type, which is made in aluminium and urethane. The Minotaur also wears a urethane suit of light and durable Otmin armour and “is highly decorated with fearsome imagery.” “
