Dueling sequels: 'Narnia II' vs. 'Harry Potter V'
Break out the Mr. Pibb and Red Vines: the next Chronicles of Narnia installment is now officially underway. Disney announced Wednesday that deals are in place for director Andrew Adamson and all four kids (far left) to return in Prince Caspian, in which the siblings return to Narnia and help the title character retake the realm from his usurping uncle Miraz.
Meanwhile, Warner Bros. announced yesterday that filming will start next week on Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, under new director David Yates, with the three young principals (left) returning, and with Vera Drake‘s Imelda Staunton as the new Defense Against the Dark Arts professor. Both sequels are due in 2007.
Which one are you looking forward to more?
