Disney Distribution Rumored
On Thursday, February 12th Andy Mooney spoke to the Institutional Investors who gathered at Walt Disney World for a two day conference. During that presentation, he was quoted as saying:
Our live action slate offers a whole new area of opportunity with Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, and future Pirates of the Caribbean adventures. All three properties will enjoy high pre-awareness and will be supported by significant pre-film marketing. Both will drive merchandise sell-in and sell-through.

This is just a rumor and nothing has been officially confirmed by Walden. Since New Line is producing “His Dark Materials” for around the same release date, it is doubtful they would pick it up. Stay tuned to NarniaWeb for the latest news.
