We're going back to Narnia for The Silver Chair

08.09.2016

aslan, the chronicles of narnia, narnia

Looks like someone is taking another crack at bringing us back to Narnia. 

Sony's TriStar Pictures, is teaming up with The Mark Gordon Company, eOne and The C.S. Lewis Company to resuscitate THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA series, picking the story back up with THE SILVER CHAIR. David Magee, who penned the screenplays for THE LIFE OF PI and FINDING NEVERLAND, is writing the script.

This is the second time a studio has made an attempt to carry the torch for the NARNIA stories after Disney opted out after making two films - THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE and PRINCE CASPIAN. 20th Century Fox attempted to revitalize the dragging property, but THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER didn't turn out the business they had hoped for back in 2010, and C.S. Lewis' tales have been sitting on the shelf ever since. 

The NARNIA films felt as if they were continuing on a downward trend, with each film failing to live up to the one which came before it - hardly the trajectory a series shold be on. But, if this new partnership has the confidence (and, more importantly, the money) to think they can turn that frown upside-down and make THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA bankable again, then good luck to them. They're really going to need it.

God, Sony is desperate for a hit. The last Narnia movie came out 6 years ago.

The Silverchair was the most boring of all the books. Disney and director Andrew Adamson did such a good job on the material. Highly doubt another company will duplicate that.

So, if this movie gets made will Narnia be the film franchise that's swapped studios the most?

Fuck this!

The only good NARNIA movies were the two made by Disney! Why not give Disney the rights back so they can reboot the whole franchise? Of course, it would seem repetitive if Disney remade the first three movies live-action! So maybe they can get the rights to NARNIA back and start fresh by making them clay-animated?

One caveat

I'm only on board if they can get Silverchair to reunite and do the soundtrack.
