Chronicles Of Narnia Netflix Series 2023 Update

Chronicles Of Narnia Netflix Series 2023 Update

All the way back in 2018 we brought you an interesting article regarding the various streaming platforms and their race to develop the biggest budget series. And The Chronicles of Narnia was one of them.

Amazon Studios laid down the gauntlet with the announcement that they were putting Lord Of The Rings into production. We now know that they paid a whopping $250 million just for the rights.

With a five-season production commitment worth at least US$1 billion, this will make The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power the most expensive television series ever made.

Soon after that Amazon announcement, Netflix made a successful bid for the rights to The Chronicles Of Narnia. In fact, Netflix have obtained the rights for all seven of C.S. Lewis' “Narnia” books.

The plans was to develop multiple series and film projects set in the Narnia universe. That was thanks to a deal with The C.S. Lewis Company, which manages the rights to the acclaimed Irish author’s works.

This gave Netflix worldwide rights to the entire “Narnia” series, and is the first time all seven books have been sold to a single company.

The Chronicles of Narnia Production

Leading production on a feature length movie as well as episodic programming is Mark Gordon. Gordon is more widely known for his work on television series like Criminal Minds and Grey’s Anatomy.

We are nearly five years on and details relating to the films have been thin on the ground. Until now.

Greta Gerwig, fresh off the back of directing Barbie, has been handed the mammoth task of directing not one, but TWO of the Narnia movies for Netflix.

Appearing on the Total Film podcast, Gerwig said: “I haven't even really started wrapping my arms around it, but I'm properly scared of it, which feels like a good place to start.

“I think when I'm scared, it's always a good sign. Maybe when I stop being scared, it'll be like, ‘Maybe I shouldn't do that one.' No, I'm terrified of it. It's extraordinary. And it's exciting.”

For now though, that's all we know about the Narnia movies.

The Chronicles of Narnia Netflix Release Date

They haven't been written so it's going to be at least two years before we see one on Netflix.

But with Greta Gerwig behind the camera, they will certainly be worth waiting for!

But as ever, as soon as we know what's going on, you will be the first to know!
