Hollywoodnews.com: Who knew there were so many “Chronicles of Narnia” fans in New Delhi?

Hoping to reach a sufficiently global audience this holiday season, Fox Star Studios India has announced it will release “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in India one week ahead of the film’s U.S. release, according to the Hollywood Reporter. THR reports that “Narnia” will open in India on Dec. 10, which IS the U.S. release date. Perhaps they mean Dec. 3?

As for opening earlier overseas, it’s not quite an unprecedented move. The last James Bond installment, “Quantum of Solace,” opened in India before reaching the States, But it is a massive move, as “Narnia” will enjoy the widest release for a Hollywood film in India’s history. THR reports that the third “Narnia” film will receive more than “800 prints including dubbed versions in Hindi and regional languages and 3D versions, as well.”

The third “Narnia” reunites Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skander Keynes) with King Caspian (Ben Barnes) for a journey aboard the ship Dawn Treader to stop the evil White Witch (Tilda Swinton). Muchael Apted directs the fantasy adventure, which will be in U.S. theaters on Dec. 10.
