Netflix is rebooting ‘The Chronicles of Narnia’

"Prepare your wardrobes".

Netflix is taking a huge step into fantasy, after securing the rights to C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia.

Although full details of the project are yet to emerge, it’s believed that the streaming service will reboot the Disney films series of the early to mid 2000s  – which offered a big screen take on books including The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian, and Voyage Of The Dawntreader.

However, if they wish to follow the traditional chronology of Narnia, then fans can expect The Magician’s Nephew to emerge first.


In this regard, they’ve confirmed they have access to all seven books.

“C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world,” said Netflix’s chief content officer Ted Sarandos.

“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.”

Meanwhile, it was recently reported that Netflix will venture into choose-your-own-adventure programming with new episodes of Black Mirror.

An anonymous source spoke to Bloomberg, revealing that the interactive episode will form part of the fifth series of Black Mirror, which is set to return to the streaming service in December.
A release date for The Chronicles of Narnia is yet to be revealed.
