Netflix nowadays published it'd be growing a new sequence and movies according to C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia collection, adding yet a further arrow to the enterprise's quiver of delusion adaptations in the works.
Netflix has been on a tear recently, gathering up the rights to lots-beloved franchises. It's to this point snagged The Witcher (and former Superman Henry Cavill) and Diablo for upcoming collection. Narnia could be an try and make a more child-pleasant (or teen-friendly) show, within the vein of A sequence of unlucky events.
The news comes from the fb web page for the Chronicles of Narnia sequence. based on its announcement, Netflix will be establishing each a collection and movies from the books. Lewis's stepson, Douglas Gresham, cites the developments in distribution technology as a major purpose Netflix became chosen, asserting it's the most efficient medium to "make Narnian adventures come to lifestyles in all places the realm."
Netflix Chief content material Officer Ted Sarandos additionally stated of the deal:
C.S. Lewis' cherished Chronicles of Narnia reviews have resonated with generations of readers everywhere. families have fallen in love with characters like Aslan and the complete world of Narnia, and we're extremely joyful to be their domestic for years to come.
in line with the identical facebook put up, "The deal marks the first time that rights to the complete seven books of the Narnia universe have been held via the identical company," which could clarify why the old attempt at a movie collection ultimately fizzled out. while I'm no longer an enormous fan of C.S. Lewis individually, the sequence consists of ample evocative imagery and delusion tropes that I'd have an interest to look what clever or formidable producers can do with Netflix's funds.
Between this and The Witcher, it appears Netflix goes all-in on darkish fantasy. Given the proven fact that game of Thrones will officially be ending in 2019, it makes sense that each Netflix and Amazon (which scored the rights to Lord of the Rings closing 12 months) could be ready to fill that gap in viewer's hearts.
