Rosarito Fox Studio-The setting for the upcoming Disney Movie Narnia 3

Foxploration, the gorgeous film studios located in Rosarito, Baja, will be the setting for the upcoming Disney movie, The Chronicles of Narnia 3. Disney’s The Chronicles of Narnia 3: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, is now preparing for an extending shoot in Rosarito Beach, specifically at the Baja Film Studio and in its filming tank. The production crew is expected to pump as much as $60 million into the local economy over the course of the four-or five-month shooting schedule. That gargantuan effort is set to start in November and is focused on underwater and beach scenes. The sequel of a CS Lewis Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe adaptation, is now in theaters and has grossed more than $150 million since its May opening. There are rumors that since the Grand Bahama studio where Pirates of the Caribbean II and III were filmed, has serious issues and its water filming tank is broken, Foxploration may be also be the recipient of the contract for the filming of Pirates of the Caribbean IV. This would mean an influx of money to the North of Baja like the area hasn’t seen since Titanic was filmed here. The Foxploration theme park, built by 20th Century Fox in 1996 for the filming of Titanic, is now open five days a week, attracting U.S. visitors looking to tour the facility where Master and Commander, Pearl Harbor and Tomorrow Never Dies were also shot. During the filming of The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader, tours will be less frequent, but visitors to the park will get to meet the shooting crew and actors and witness the making of the movie.
