Plans For The Future Of Narnia

Walden Media’s Bob Beltz talked with Infuze Magazine about the production of “The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian” and confirmed much of the same crew from “Lion, Witch & The Wardrobe” will be back behind-the-scenes.

Story wise he says that “everything that is in the book will be in the film” but due to its somewhat different structure, the order of some scenes need to be re-arranged.

He also talked about plans for the future of the franchise. Seems that the studio plans to release the next three films in the series annually from now on.

Each film has almost six months of shooting followed by a nearly year of post-production. To fit the schedule, shooting will begin on the next film when the current film goes into post.

Thus “Caspian” will shoot from February-August for a May 2008 release, “Voyager of the Dawn Treader” will shoot starting very late 2007 or early 2008 for a Summer 2009 release, and “The Silver Chair” very late 2008/early 2009 shoot for a Summer 2010 release.
