The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian Release Date Changed to Summer 2008

Posted on Wednesday, May 17th, 2006. Last Updated on Wednesday, May 17th, 2006 12:32 PM by Scott Jentsch

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has been moved from its original 12/14/2007 release date to an undetermined date in the summer of 2008. Reuters is reporting that the move was precipitated by the announcement by Columbia Pictures that "The Water Horse" was going to be released on 12/8/2007, and Disney did not want to compete for the same audience. (We don't even have information for that movie yet).
Both epics are produced by Denver billionaire Philip Anschutz's Walden Media and likely would have cannibalized one another. The perceived threat to its family audience during the lucrative holiday period was enough to make Disney blink. "We're going to movie 'Prince Caspian' to summer of '08," said Dennis Rice, sr vp publicity at Walt Disney Studios. "Sony and Walden wanted to announce 'Water Horse' and the best we can do is move into summer which will open up the holiday frame that Walden wanted." Rice said the studio has yet to determine a solid date, but the date change gives director Andrew Adamson and his team of filmmakers more breathing room.
