The LA Times has a fascinating article on the real reason that Disney is not continuing the Narnia series on film. Essentially it is a matter of money, both in marketing and in their relationship with Walden Media. I love seeing the drama behind the drama.
The good news for fans of the films (and I wasn’t a fan of Prince Caspian) is that a third film deal may be announced as early as the end of this week. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the next in the series and should be a swashbuckling good time. I consider the first three books the easiest to make into film. The others look very daunting.
