Get ready to head back into the wardrobe.
Netflix has announced that we will be going back to Narnia as the platform has signed a deal with The C.S. Lewis Company.
The last time we ventured to the fantastical land of Narnia was on the big screen in 2010’s The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
The C.S. Lewis Company has now signed a multi-year deal with the streaming service, giving it complete rights to all 7 books and marking the first time one single company has down so.
“C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world,” said Ted Sarandos, chief content officer at Netflix. “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.”
Lewis’ stepson, Douglas Gresham, has welcomed the move, saying, “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.”
We can’t wait either.
