Sorry "Narnia" Fans -- Disney Says No to "Dawn Treader" 


Oh No! Disney is not going to make the third book in the C.S. Lewis masterpiece.

"The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader" may have to migrate to FOX under their FOX/WALDEN banner.

Walden Media owns the rights to the franchise, but it's not sure if the main cast will return.

The big problem with making the third movie? According to The Hollywood Reporter it's all about money:

Any partnership on a "Narnia" movie will require a substantial investment. "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.


And with "Prince Caspian" making considerably less than "The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe," Disney says adieu!

The first book is the most popular in the franchise, hence, it made more money, but I hope, and wish that the series lives on with another studio, because this great C.S. Lewis classic deserves to be told on the big screen!
