I am a big fan of the C. S. Lewis books, and his adventure books about Narnia are amazing. I enjoyed all three Disney movies about Narnia (even though the first one was by far the best), but now I am curious to find out how Netflix will work this out.
Amazon is working on the production of The Lord of the Rings as an Amazon original series. The HBO flagship, Game of Thrones, will have its end in 2019. By getting the rights to further work on the Narnia books, Netflix will step into the adventure world, and this might turn into a fantastic series. We might even get movies, but Netflix hasn’t shared information yet about whether they will create movies, a series, or maybe even both.
We do not know much about when the actual production will start and when we can expect the content to arrive at Netflix, but what I know for sure is one thing… I look forward to seeing Narnia on Netflix.
From the original press release
“Netflix will develop new series and film projects based on C.S. Lewis’ beloved The Chronicles of Narnia series. Under the terms of a multi-year deal between Netflix and The C.S. Lewis Company, Netflix will develop classic stories from across the Narnia universe into series and films for its members worldwide. All series and films produced through the deal will be Netflix productions, with Mark Gordon of Entertainment One (eOne) alongside Douglas Gresham and Vincent Sieber serving as executive producers for series and as producers for features.”
