News: Netflix Developing Narnia Movies and Series

Amazingly enough, the film series that translated the C.S. Lewis books to film never really drummed up a major take at the box office other than the first entry. While it's only been less than a decade since Voyage of the Dawn Treader hit cinemas, Netflix is now looking at developing their own movies and a potential series based on the novels. While there were rumors that a fourth movie, The Silver Chair would star Millie Bobby Brown and had attached Joe Johnston as director, it never came to fruition. With that project dead in the water, Netflix is readying a major overhaul of the brand that will turn the brand into its next big thing. 

The Chronicles of Narnia official Facebook page announced today that the streaming giant is already hard at work bringing back the well loved novels in a brand new way. 

Douglas Gresham, stepson of C.S. Lewis had this to say, “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.”
