The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian was released earlier this year and made a nice profit. However the only problem was it made $300 million less than The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. That’s not how things are supposed to work! Sequels usually make more than the first film, so it’s not surprising that Walden Media have taken their time green lighting the third film, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
In a statement announcing some changes at the top, Walden Media revealed that work on the next film will begin soon:
Cary Granat, Co-CEO and co-founder of Walden Media, will transition from his Walden position to a consultant for the company effective December 1. Granat will be Walden’s creative consultant on the third installment in “The Chronicles of Narnia” franchise – “Voyage of the Dawn Treader”- which the company hopes to greenlight soon.
In The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 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.
