The End of Narnia?
Disney will be shelving the Narnia series after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
According to JimHillMedia.com, “studio suits seem to be cooling to the idea of producing movie versions of all seven of C.S. Lewis’s Narnia books. And unless The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian does truly huge box office once it’s released to theaters in May of this year … Disney & Walden Media (i.e. Mickey’s partner on the Narnia film series) will probably still go forward with production of the already-in-development The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But after that … The Mouse would then mostly likely pull the plug on the rest of the proposed Narnia film series.”
If that happens then the studio will be left with a hole in its release schedules for 2011 and beyond; Disney and Pixar are said to be looking at bringing the Edgar Rice Burroughs literary series John Carter of Cars to the big screen to fill that franchise void.
