In what appears to be a miracle handed down to Walden Media and its Narnia fans after last month’s upsetting news of Walt Disney Pictures departure from the chronicles of Narnia series. Many had already considered the series to be dead and remain unfinished after Walt Disney Pictures announced that for budgetary and logistical reasons the studio would not exercising its option to co-produce and co-finance its third film "The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader" with Walden, however Walden Media kept its hopes up and said it would continue to shop the film around in hope of finding another studio to co-produce and co-finance the third film and the remaining films in its series. But now it appear all in not lost after all as 20th Century Fox stepped in to pick up the slack left behind by Disney, and has said to develop the third film “The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader” side by side with Walden Media. Variety says that the two sides are still working out budget and script issues, but the hope is to shoot the film at the end of summer for a holiday 2010 release through the Fox Walden label.
More to come on Voyage Of The Dawn Treader and more as we hear it.
