Netflix has acquired the rights to adapt the beloved fantasy book series The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. The first book The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe about four English children and their adventures in the fantasy world of Narnia during WWII was introduced to the world in 1950.
Seventy years later the stories will be coming alive right in your home.
Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer for Netflix said in a statement:
C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world. Families have fallen in love with characters like Aslan and the entire world of Narnia, and we’re thrilled to be their home for years to come.
C.S. Lewis' stepson, Douglas Gresham added:
It is wonderful to know that folks from all over are looking forward to seeing more of Narnia, and that the advances in production and distribution technology have made it possible for us to make Narnian adventures come to life all over the world. Netflix seems to be the very best medium with which to achieve this aim, and I am looking forward to working with them towards this goal.
Fans of the series can hardly contain their excitement.
But some folks had concerns.
There was confusion over past films and a new series.
Casting choices are already being thrown out there.
We will all have to wait and see.
