Disney to release Narnia after VDT?

I can't exactly remember where I saw this, although it was on a movie blog site. Has anyone else heard about this?

Im not entirely sure what you mean... Are you suggesting that Disney might return as the distributor for future films after Dawn Treader?

If so, then no. I don't believe Walden Media have any sort of contractual obligation or secret deal to go back to Disney after Dawn Treader. There is literally no way 20th Century Fox would of come on board and invested a large amount of money in the project if they weren't going to be able to reap the financial benefits of potential sequels.

Even if Dawn Treader bombed and 20th Century Fox decided to drop the series, i can't see Walt Disney even considering picking the series back-up again. It just wouldnt make any business sense to pick up a twice-ditched franchise, of which they themselves had ditched once before.

Would help if you had a link to the source of your rumour, so we could assess it more acurately. i.e. whether or not it was just some average joe who may or may not even know what he was talking about, or whether or not it was a well known media blogger (e.g. Jim Hill) who may have industry insider information.

hmm, I think I saw it on firstshowing.net, but now that I'm looking through the archives I can't remember which story I read it in :-\ I agree though, it wouldn't really make any sense if Fox dropped it for Disney to pick it up again, I'll keep looking.

if this is true, that would be strange.....escpecially since Disney backed out of Narnia because they didn't agree with Walden on the realease date of PC...... :-\ :-s :p

No that wouldn't make much sense if that happened.

I can't see it happening, but if VODT did extremely well and for some reason FOX dropped it, I could see them picking it back up...

If VDT does well (*says to self, "please don't jinx it, wolf" :-s *) I can see Disney regretting dropping it, but then Fox wouldn't give it up.

In all honesty I hope they don't pick it back up, at least not yet. I think the change will be good for the franchise.

^^so do I...but if the Narnia franchise became successful and FOX is unable to continue the movies, Disney would pick it back up.

^^ Warner Bros. would be good too.....but New Line did LOTR and it would be good if they did it if Fox dropped out!

^^Warner Bros did Harry Potter (and they had something to do with LOTR as well) and those are amazingly successful fantasy movies. I think they could do well with Narnia too.
