After a decade-long wait, fans of “The Chronicles of Narnia” can finally rejoice as Netflix has officially given the green light to two new films based on C.S. Lewis’ beloved book series.

The announcement comes as a delightful surprise, reigniting the excitement and anticipation surrounding this fictional world.

The Narnia saga captured the hearts of millions when the first film, “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” hit theaters in 2005, followed by “Prince Caspian” in 2008 and “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” in 2010. These enchanting cinematic adaptations amassed box office success of more than $1.5 billion worldwide, leaving fans longing for more.

In a surprising turn of events, Netflix seized the opportunity to acquire the rights to “The Chronicles of Narnia” series when Walden Media let go of its rights in 2018. Since then, enthusiasts have been eagerly awaiting news of new Narnia adventures on the horizon.


The streaming giant expressed great enthusiasm for bringing C.S. Lewis’ timeless tales to life. Netflix’s chief content officer, Ted Sarandos, shared his excitement, remarking, “C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world. 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.”

While specific details about the upcoming Narnia films are yet to be revealed, fans can rest assured that Netflix has secured the rights to the entire seven-book series. This marks a significant milestone as it is the first time a single company possesses the exclusive rights to the entire “Chronicles of Narnia” universe.

The timeless appeal of the Narnia books is evident through their staggering sales of over 100 million copies worldwide, with translations available in more than 47 languages. These literary treasures have captivated readers from various cultures and backgrounds, leaving an indelible mark on the world of fantasy literature.

With Netflix’s commitment to creating immersive and imaginative worlds, the anticipation for the new “Chronicles of Narnia” films is palpable. With the director reigns being given to Greta Gerwig, the focus is firmly set on the rich tapestry of Narnia itself, promising to transport audiences once again into a world brimming with magic, adventure and unforgettable characters.


As fans eagerly await further updates, the return to Narnia offers a renewed sense of excitement and wonder. The announcement of two new Narnia films signifies a long-awaited reunion with cherished friends, and an invitation to embark on new journeys through the wardrobe into a realm where dreams and imagination intertwine.
