How many of us wished we could walk into a closet and be in a whole different world filled with snow, mountains, castles, and talking animals? I bet all of us right?
But unfortunately, it’s all fiction. A fiction that was made alive by author C. S. Lewis.
The Chronicles of Narnia is a seven series fantasy novel which is one of the most beloved books ever made that has sold over 100 million copies worldwide and has been translated into more than 47 languages all over the world.
When it came out as a film series back in 2005 everyone from children to adults and from the book readers to the non-readers fell in love with it.
There were only 3 films that have been adapted out of the seven-novel series that was able to gross a whopping $1.5 billion worldwide sales combined.
After the completion of the 3rd adaptation “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader,” it was announced that the 4th adaptation would be directed by Joe Johnston.
The initial plan was that the production of the films would be in the same order as the book series. However, instead of “The Silver Chair,” it was rumored that “The Magician’s Nephew” was chosen to be the 4th film.
But due to a lot of reasons, the pre-production hasn’t been in works. Previously, Walt Disney Studios owned the distribution rights after a lot of negotiations with C. S. Lewis.
However, the films failing to come in time has been very disappointing to the fans of the films and books as well.
But all you Narnia fans can now breathe of sigh of relief because a good news is headed your way.
The Chronicles of Narnia is officially coming out on Netflix.
