Looks like earning $420 million worldwide just isn't good enough in the current economy. With the second installment in the Narnia series, Prince Caspian, earning $325 million less than its predecessor, Walt Disney studios has decided to walk away from the third entry, citing "budgetary and logistical" reasons, and leaving The Voyage of the Dawn Treader to find another studio to help produce and finance.

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. Posted 09.20.07 by reelz
We are here at Comic-Con Hall H again for today's Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Producer Mark Johnson has just confirmed that, as long as fan support of the movies continues to hold as strong as it did on the first film, the plan is to release another entry in the series every May. If all continues well, there will be seven films.
Andrew Adamson will not be directing the third film, but he has said he hopes to stay involved in the series.
