walden media, which owns the rights to the c.s. lewis series, the lion the witch and the wardrobe, is looking for a partner for the voyage of the dawn treader, the 3rd in the series. apparently prince caspian didn’t perform as planned. although this is probably more due to disney deciding to show the film in summer as opposed to christmas like the original film which made almost $800m worldwide. despite disney’s lousey marketing campaign and poor choice of a release date, the film still managed to eek out almost $500m worldwide. it’s a good investment for any studio interested in dollar signs.
