Netflix to Adapt C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia into Series

Netflix recently announced that they have signed a deal permitting them to develop a new television series based on the wildly popular book series turned motion picture franchise, C.S. Lewis’ The Chronicles of Narnia.
According to the deal between the streaming service and The C.S. Lewis Company, Netflix will be permitted to develop the Narnia universe into a Netflix originals series and create additional films. The deal notes that the producers hope the series and films will be able to play off of each other, crossing between mediums. Examples of franchises that have done similar things successfully are Star Trek and Marvels.
According to the press release, Lewis’ books have sold over 100 million copies and have been translated into more than 47 languages.
The deal between Netflix and The C.S. Lewis Company is a landmark deal, marking the first time any one company holds the official rights to the entire seven books in the Narnia series. It does seem, however, that Netflix is taking the series’ popularity and loyal fanbase into consideration.
“C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world,” Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer said in a press release. “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.”
The Narnia books were previously adapted by Sony Pictures into three film, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005), Prince Caspian (2008), and The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010).
