It has been reported that The Chronicles of Narnia Netflix Series and Movies are being planned. It will be based on the novels written by C. S. Lewis. It was announced a couple of days ago by the C. S. Lewis Company that the projects will be produced by Mark Gordon of Entertainment One. He is the one who became the new steward of the Chronicles of Narnia franchise in 2016. According to the agreement, the rights to all the seven The Chronicles of Narnia novels in the Chronicles of Narnia Netflix series will be held by the same company.
Statement by Douglas Gresham
“It is wonderful to know that folks from all over are looking forward to seeing more of Narnia and that the advances in production and distribution technology have made it possible for us to make Narnian adventures come to life all over the world. Netflix seems to be the very best medium with which to achieve this aim, and I am looking forward to working with them towards this goal,” said Douglas Gresham, C. S. Lewis’ stepson, in a statement.
History of The Chronicles of Narnia
The Chronicles of Narnia Series started in 1950 with The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. It focused on the children of the real world who were transported to the magical world of Narnia. It was populated by talking animals and mythical beasts. Narnia was overseen by the Christ-like lion Aslan. The books’ unlikely mishmash of Greek and Roman mythology, traditional fairy tales and Christian themes are both a reason for their appeal and a focus of criticisms.
The Chronicles of Narnia novels have been adapted many times over the year. The latest adaptations include Walden Media: 2005’s The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, 2008’s Prince Caspian and 2010’s The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The company lost the film rights in 2011, after which they were acquired by Mark Gordon, who initially planned a big-screen adaptation of The Silver Chair.
