Disney Pulls Out of Third "NARNIA" Film

Walt Disney Pictures and Walden Media have confirmed that for budgetary and logistical reasons the Burbank-based studio is not exercising its option to co-produce and co-finance "THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER" with Walden.

The Hollywood Reporter says the third installment was in preproduction and set for a spring shoot for a planned May 2010 release. The development puts the participation of the talent attached in doubt, adds the trade. Michael Apted was on board to direct a script by Steven Knight. The key players of the second installment, "Prince Caspian" -- Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley, William Moseley and Anna Popplewell -- were to return for the third film.

Walden has a strong relationship with the C.S. Lewis estate and will shop "Treader" in hopes of finding a new partner. The most likely candidate at this stage is Fox, which markets and distributes Walden fare under the Fox Walden banner.

Any partnership on a "Narnia" movie will require a substantial investment, however. "Caspian," which filmed in the Czech Republic, Mexico and New Zealand, cost $200 million. The first film, "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," was shot mostly in New Zealand for $180 million.

Synopsis : Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.

French Release : 2010-12-08 | US Release : 2010-12-10

Of Course, Disney's pulling out. Dawn Trader might actually have some substance *gasp*

Well after they jolly well MURDERED the last one, I had hoped that Disney would learn from the less than spectacular grossings on Caspian and make a much better (and truer to the book) Voyage. But now that they've pulled out, it's all up in the air! (Disney underestimates the devotion of the books fans, I think. We scrutinize the films as closely as Potter heads do to theirs, you know.)

And yes, this fascination with preteen pop stars, while a mite quaint at first, has gotten not only old, but down right nauseating. I'm trying to get my preteen sisters to read classic books, not fawn over the hottie of the week.

Old Walt turns in his grave! :(

Oh, and by the way, I was being sarcastic, they don't need to make another movie along the lines of "High School Musical"

This "pop star" fascination Disney has got going really needs to bite the dust.

Not surprising Disney would pull this stunt, they need to make another tween movie along the lines of Hannah Montana/Lizzie McGuire/High School Musical...

Disney used to do tons of cool movies about magic and fancy stuff like that, now they just do movies for horny preteens.
