Return to Narnia

Recently I heard from David Nevue, pianist-composer and founder of Whisperings Radio in Eugene, Oregon, about plans for the third segment of the Chronicles of Narnia saga, produced by Walden Media and distributed by Disney.

The filmmakers behind the Narnia movies, admitting they "made some mistakes" with 2008's Prince Caspian, believe they have righted the ship for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, coming to theaters in December ...

Douglas Gresham, stepson of author C S Lewis and de facto guardian of his legacy, has been a co-producer of the films from the start. What could go wrong?

This film will now be distributed by 20th Century Fox, and be directed by Michael Apted, replacing Andrew Adamson. It will continue to star Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley as the two younger siblings Edmund and Lucy. (You may remember that the older two sibs were said by the great Aslan as having outgrown the experience. Or something.) Personally, I liked Caspian, and I look forward to seeing the adventure continue.

For Narnia! For Aslan!! For the complete boxed set on DVD or Blu-Ray!!!
