Narnia 3 delayed; puberty looms
09.20.07 by REELZ
Fans of the Chronicles of Narnia franchise will have to wait a while before the third chapter of the series, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, arrives in theaters. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Disney has pushed the film's release date back one year, to May 7, 2010, citing "the challenging schedules of our young actors" as the primary reason for the delay.
The delay sheds light on an ominous threat that looms on the horizon for Narnia, one that could potentially bring down the entire franchise: puberty, that cruel beast that turned Fred Savage the actor into Fred Savage the director. Disney might want to consider proven methods of postponing the onset of adolescence, like coffee, cigarettes and gymnastics. Worked for Gary Coleman.
The release date of the second Narnia movie, Prince Caspian, has also been pushed back, to May 16, 2008. Which means we might have to wait a full eight months before the next funny SNL sketch airs.
