Walden’s Narnia Plans After the Third Pic


We know that Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media have scheduled The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian for May 16, 2008 and The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader for May 7, 2010, but what are the studios’ plans after that?

Walden co-founder and president Cary Granat gave Variety an update:

Hopes are highest for “Prince Caspian,” which will cost at least $100 million. Granat promises that the battle-filled sequel is easily distinguishable from its predecessor and the third pic on the sked, “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.”

Producers had announced at Comic-Con in July that auds could expect one “Narnia” installment each May for the next few years. Granat is committing publicly to only four or five, saying that “Silver Chair” might be the best bet for the fourth, followed by “Magician’s Nephew,” but he admits that there are a multitude of possibilities.

“There are a lot of stories to be taken from the seven books,” he notes.
