"Chronicles of Narnia 3" Having Difficulties

Posted: December 1st, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Chronicles of Narnia 3" Having DifficultiesSubmit Comment
Jim Hill Media is reporting that Disney's proposed third "Chronicles of Narnia" movie, "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," may be delayed or scaled back as a result of "Prince Caspian's" disappointing box-office performance. [via Sci-Fi Wire]

Disney and Walden Media are still reportedly moving forward with the third installment in the franchise, and director Michael Apted has been monitoring "Dawn Treader's" development since June 2007. Actors have been cast ("Son of Rambow" star Will Poulter has been hired to play Pevensie cousin Eustace Scrubb), and studio space has been lined up (at Baja Studios in Rosarito Beach) for a four-to-five month-long shoot, which is allegedly slated to begin in late January.

But Disney hasn't actually green-lighted production of "Voyage of the Dawn Treader." Given that Disney and Walden Media executives are concerned that the new movie may earn even less than "Prince Caspian" did, strict cost-control measures have now been put into place.

The original plans to shoot "Dawn Treader" on location in Malta, Iceland and Prague have been dropped. Two-thirds of this film will be shot in Mexico in the huge water tank that James Cameron used for "Titanic."

The site added that Walden Media reportedly wants Disney to fund half of a $140 million production. But given that Disney is contractually obligated to cover the costs of all prints and advertising on the Narnia movies, Disney is supposedly pushing for a $100 million version instead. It's also likely that a release date will be pushed back to 2011.

The first one did so much better in the box office because of the time it came out. Narnia movies have more of a "holiday feel" to them. They're not really summer action flicks or anything. Also, Indiana Jones came out within a week of Narnia. They're almost the same demographic. Parents would feel comfortable taking their kids to both and many adults would see both of their own will anyway. It is wrong of Disney to short-change this great franchise. I enjoyed both movies and hope Dawn Treader isn't downsized into mediocrity.

Prince Caspian was not as good as it should have been. I still want to see 'Voyage' but they really need to work on bringing a greaat version to the screen instead of a subpar one.

Good for them! Finally Disney is about to cancel a sequel instead of making one. This never happens. Nice decision, leave the books alone as they are.

this is not good! they have get going on it and I'm Afraid that $100 million might not be enough to make it great like the other I think that Down treader will do much better then PC.
