    Ambitious "Narnia" Trilogy Plans

    Entertainment Weekly this week published an article outlining Walden Media's plans for the future of "The Chronicles of Narnia" series of films and its surprising what's in store.





    First up, its certain that the fourth book "Prince Caspian" will be the next adventure. Despite its shorter length than 'Wardrobe', there's no plans to fuse elements from the other novels into it. Producer Mark Johnson confirms that adapting the story is proving tougher than 'Wardrobe' and it now looks like the film could be pushed back a year to Xmas 2008 due to visual effects demands.

    The fifth and sixth books, "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" and "The Silver Chair", will be done next with the studio planning to use Caspian and these two as "an interlocking trilogy that will be shot in that order".





    What about the other three books though? No word on if the studio plans to do any of them, though most likely the first novel "The Magician's Nephew" will be the first post-trilogy project.

    Magician's Nephew and A Horse and his Boy aren't essential to the main narrative of the series, so I can understand why they'd be skipping them (for now, at least). There's also The Last Battle, and if things keep going well I'm sure it will be made into a movie too.

    Why not the Last Battle? And could we get a official thread for the Narnia movies? So we dont have all these threads.

    I still don't think sequels will make more than 1st Narnia made.

    For me, Narnia is mixture of Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter movies.

    I don't care if they do the horse and his boy I never liked it anyway. It doesn't really connect to the other books either. I hope they eventually decide to make the Last Battle because it is my second favorite in the series. As for Prince Caspian being "possibly" released in 2008 :down that sucks. If it does get released in 2008 hopefully its in the summer and not winter.

    -I'd make Prince Caspian.

    -Find a new cast for the Pevensies, keep the current Caspian.

    -Hire two different directors

    -Get one to direct a trilogy of Dawn Treader, Silver Chair, and The Last Battle

    -The other director would film The Magician's Nephew and The Horse and His Boy

    -The releases would be has follows:

    Christmas: Dawn Treader

    Spring: Dawn Treader DVD

    Summer: The Magicians Nephew

    Fall: TMN DVD

    Christmas: The Silver Chair

    Spring: TSC DVD

    Summer: The Horse and His Boy

    Fall: THHB DVD

    Christmas: The Last Battle

    Spring: The Last Battle DVD

    Christmas: Box release of all Narnia films in order.

    Why would you want to re-cast the kids?

    That would ruin the series for me if they did that...CONSISTENCY PEOPLE! :mad:
