Hasn't it been a really long time since the film series of 'The Chronicles of Narnia' came in? Not much has been done after the trilogy but now Netflix is entering this world. The streaming giant is going big in order to oversee the live-adaptation of C.S. Lewis' The Chronicles of Narnia book series as live action films.
And for doing this, the streaming giant has roped in none other than Matthew Aldrich. Aldrich is best known for co-writing Coco, the mega-hit for Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. The film won the Academy Award for best animated feature and grossed over $800 million worldwide.
Netflix and the C.S. Lewis Company announced in October that they had struck a multi-year deal for Netflix to develop stories from across the Narnia universe into series and films. 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.
For the uninitiated, The seven Narnia books have sold more than 100 million copies and been translated in more than 47 languages worldwide. The first three — “The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe,” “Prince Caspian” and “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” — were adapted into movies, which grossed more than $1.5 billion worldwide between 2005 and 2010.
The Narnia world will be recreated again.
