Cary Granat, Co-CEO and co-founder of Walden Media, will transition from his Walden position to a consultant for the company effective December 1. Granat will be Walden’s creative consultant on the third installment in “The Chronicles of Narnia” franchise – “Voyage of the Dawn Treader”- which the company hopes to greenlight soon. He will also provide consulting services for an initiative with AEG Live, the concert and promotion company owned by Phil Anschutz who also owns Walden.
Why just hoping to be greenlit? Well, the last movie made $419,641,908 world wide which would normally be awesome, but… the first Narnia Film made $745,011,272. Generally the bean counters like to see the numbers go up with each new film. Hopefully, they will give it a shot and green light the movie.
The next installment will be called: Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. In it, Lucy and Edmund return with their cousin Eustace and meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
