The Chronicles of Narnia

The Chronic – WHAT! -les of Narnia is officially coming to Netflix!

Netflix bought the rights to The Chronicles of Narnia, and they will be making a new TV series set somewhere in this world.

For those who don’t know, The Chronicles of Narnia is the book series written by C.S. Lewis. The book series includes:

  • The Magician’s Nephew
  • The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe 
  • The Horse and His Boy
  • Prince Caspian
  • The Voyage of The Dawn Treader 
  • The Silver Chair 
  • The Last Battle

There are seven books in the series, but they are set at different times and places throughout Narnia and its history. The books also focus on different characters. Hopefully, Netflix presents these stories in a way that has a Game of Thrones-type feel to it with a lot of characters and intersecting storylines.

We don’t know exactly what Netflix is going to do with these stories, but it’s going to be BIG, and I’m guessing it’ll be much better than the movies based on the works of C.S. Lewis. Netflix has the resources and audience to go really big with series and see it through to the end.

According to the initial reports, Netflix is developing movies set in Narnia, as well. Again, it’s unclear which stories will get the movie treatment and which will be a TV series. Regardless, it should be really interesting to see all these stories on screen.
