Updates on Upcoming Narnia Films

The Hollywood Reporter’s “Risky Biz” blog brings us some interesting news about the second and third Narnia films.

In regards to the upcoming Prince Caspian film, producer Mark Johnson has commented that it will likely be shot in the forests of Europe in January 2007. (The tree people are important to the story of Prince Caspian.) Much speculation has surrounded the shooting location of the film, but it seems that countries such as Ireland may now be more in the ballpark than New Zealand, which was the main location in The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.

In further news, Andrew Adamson and Mark Johnson may both be slated to create The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in 2009, less than a year after the release of Prince Caspian. The third Narnia book continues the story of Edmund, Lucy, their cousin Eustace, and Caspian, questing on the high seas in Narnia. (Discuss)
