According to reports released yesterday by Variety.com and VXFWorld.com, Producer Mark Johnson has made a statement about the movie Prince Caspian:
We may have made a mistake in doing PRINCE CASPIAN as the second one. Unfortunately, PRINCE CASPIAN is one of the lesser-liked books. We also made a slightly more adult, darker story, and we shouldn’t have.
According to the report, a Narnia insider said that Disney found Walden Media too pushy for their liking, trying to dictate release dates and marketing. Walden Media reportedly had wanted Prince Caspian released during the holiday season, and were pushing for the same for Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
