Since Netflix acquired the rights to C.S. Lewis’ Chronicles of Narnia series back in October 2018, we haven’t heard much about how the show is going. In fact, news has been so slow that Lewis’ own stepson, Douglas Gresham, recently said he was “worried” that a promised TV adaptation might not happen at all.
Now, however, the official Netflix France Twitter account has come out and shed a little bit of light on the whole situation, offering confirmation that the promised Narnia adaptation will happen. This confirmation came shortly after #NetflixAdaptNarnia was trending worldwide on the platform.
When a user brought up concerns about the development, Netflix responded with a bit of hope. Translated from French, they said: “Narnia movies and series are still in the works.” It’s a short answer, but one we needed after hearing nothing for so long.
To go with this news, Netflix France also tweeted a list of other projects they haven’t forgotten about, including:
- Atypical (final season)
- Vikings: Valhalla
- Top Boy season 2
- Cowboy Bebop (the live-action series)
- Avatar: The Last Airbender (the live-action series)
- Narnia (series and films)
- Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Taïka Waititi
Naturally, fans were happy to hear something:
Unfortunately, there’s still no word on a release date and there probably won’t be for a while. Production has not yet begun, so it’s likely that the team is still writing scripts.
