A huge slab of nostalgic cheese. Stinking Bishop, I believe.

Any New Yorker will remember the WPIX Yule Log, before attention spans became shorter than Verne Troyer.

In a weird "maybe nobody will notice if we do it on Christmas Eve" move, Disney pulled out of their deal with Walden Media to release The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. This doesn't mean that Dawn Treader won't necessarily get made, but it does represent a significant roadblock for Walden Media. Some of the 'creative disagreements' with Walden seem to have been about the budget (fair enough) and release date, which is silly because it was pretty much Disney that screwed up the performance of Prince Caspian themselves by insisting it be released in the summer up against Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, WALL·E, The Dark Knight and Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Notwithstanding that saturation, any Narnia movie is, pretty much by nature, a Winter release; if Prince Caspian — which I admit that I found a distinct dramatic improvement over The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, which I had enjoyed primarily for reasons of nostalgia — had been released right around now (and promoted better, perhaps), it would probably be doing much better business than it did then.
