Was Dawn Treader Strong Enough?
The Origins of Narnia

"We are starting to talk to Fox and talk to the C.S. Lewis estate now about THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW being our next film," said Michael Flaherty, co-founder and president of Walden Media, during a recent interview with The Christian Post.

"If we can all agree to move forward, then what we would do is find someone to write the script. So, it could still be a couple of years."

Was Dawn Treader Strong Enough?
For the past several months, many Narnia fans were worried whether THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER could muster the box office numbers needed for Walden to produce another movie installment based on the beloved CHRONICLES OF NARNIA series.

VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER
had a weak start in domestic markets, taking in an underwhelming $24.5 million during the opening weekend in December and now grossing about $107 million. For a 3-D movie that cost $155 million, that isn't good news.

However, it did fare better overseas, recently surpassing the $300 million mark in foreign markets. That brings the box office total close to PRINCE CASPIAN'S $419 million, but still much less than THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE's $745 million in earnings worldwide.

The Origins of Narnia
THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW is the sixth book in the seven-title children's book series by C.S. Lewis. The story, a prequel to the popular THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, is about the creation of the magical land of Narnia and how evil entered into the newly formed land. The tale also follows Professor Kirke from THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE as a young boy (Digory) and his introduction to Narnia through a magical ring given to him by his evil Uncle Andrew, a magician.

Flaherty called THE MAGICIAN'S NEPHEW his favorite book after THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE.

"I love it because it's a great origins story. You get to learn so much about where the wardrobe came from, where the lamppost came from, where Narnia came from," he said.
