WASHINGTON (AP) -- Two young actors from "The Chronicles of Narnia" movie series say the name of one of the National Zoo's seven lion cubs in Washington will be Aslan.

Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes announced the name for the 10-week-old male cub on Thursday, in celebration of the upcoming movie and C.S. Lewis' children's books. The cub was born Sept. 22 to mother Nababiepand father Luke.

The seven lion cubs are slated to make their public debut later this month, weather permitting.
