The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (“Dawn Treader”) is filming according to Walden Media on July 27, 2009. There is a new director, Michael Apted, and the former director, Andrew Adamson will be one of the three producers. It is set to release in December 2010.
Disney does not appear to be supporting this film. I cannot find an official statement from Walden Media or Disney about this, or I would reference it.
Prince Caspian (“Caspian”) did not fare as well as The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe. According to Box Office Mojo, the opening weekend earnings for Caspian were $55,034,805 compared to $65,556,312 for The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe.
Personally, I was disappointed by Caspian because it was not as magical as the first movie and it veered from the book by adding the first failed battle scene, friction between Caspian and Peter, and a love interest between Caspian and Susan. I did not purchase Caspian when it came out on DVD.
