NEW YORK (AP) -- A sequel to the megahit family fantasy "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe" is slated to hit theaters in late 2007.

"The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" will be based on the third installment of C.S. Lewis' seven-book "Narnia" series, Disney spokesman Ash Curtis said Friday.

In the story, the Pevensie siblings -- Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy -- return to Narnia to help Prince Caspian restore peace after the country becomes gripped by civil war.

The movie will reunite director Andrew Adamson and most of the principal cast, including William Moseley (Peter), Anna Popplewell (Susan), Georgie Henley (Lucy) and Skandar Keynes (Edmund), Curtis said.

"Narnia" has earned an estimated $637.8 million worldwide.
