The Next Narnia Film: Where We Are Now

Posted September 27, 2011 9:18 am by Tirian

For quite some time now, Narnia fans have been waiting patiently for news on whether or not there will be another Narnia movie. But in the past few days, many rumors and bits of news have started circulating over the internet and our forums–both that more films are actively being scripted and that work on the Narnia films has ceased entirely. We were hoping for an official statement before posting any more news on the situation, but now we feel that things need to be cleared up immediately.

During the negotiations between Fox, Walden, and the C.S. Lewis Estate, the film option that Walden Media owned was allowed to expire and Walden Media no longer has exclusive purchasing rights to any further Narnia films. (What’s the difference between a film option and the film rights? Check out Wikipedia’s article here.) This has been confirmed to us by representatives of the C.S. Lewis Estate.

And while Walden and Fox have confirmed they are both interested in making more Narnia films, our understanding is that, by law, the C.S. Lewis Estate must wait a certain period of time (called a moratorium) before they can sell the film option for the Narnia books again. And when they do, it will be available to any film company out there interested in bidding on it, not just Walden and Fox.

So what does this mean? It means that the ball is entirely in the C.S. Lewis Estate’s court at this point, and they have to wait this mandatory period of time until they can sell the film option again. We here at NarniaWeb don’t know exactly how long this moratorium is, though it is likely several years. What we do know, however, is that Doug Gresham has mentioned many times that it’s his dream to make all seven Narnia books into movies so he probably won’t rest until he’s done that. This is not the end of the Narnia movies! We’re only going to have to wait a while before we see another one.

    PHEW finally, a new update! Anyways, this is so sad and good at the same time. Sad that it will be several years, which is more than 2 years because people usually say "a couple years" and couple is 2 so yeah, I really hope this moratorium doesn’t last too long. It’s a happy update too knowing that there will be more than what we have already. What is the reason for this whole "all of sudden" moratorium and not giving rights to Walden Media anyways? OH and what exactly is the C.S. Lewis Estate? Hmm well anyways due to this delay, I would highly recommend The Silver Chair to be next now if the aging of Will Poulter is a issue to most people. However, Tilda Swinton who plays the White Witch for The Magicians Nephew would be aged as well. My opinion however with her is not worried about because she is 50 years old and I swear I thought she was about 40-45. Either way, we need to make Doug Gresham’s dream come true!

    • JillPoleLovestheNazgul says:

      i agree about Will, i really love narnia and id hate to see it go downhill, and i fear it will if Will Poulter is replaced, but yeah its good to hear its a possibility that all narnia movies will be out, i really want to see HB MN and LB as a film

    • InAslan'sCountry says:

      I gotta be honest, when I first heard this news I kind of lied to myself saying that this was a good thing and there might be another Narnia movie after all. But now, especially after reading this news for a second time, I gotta be honest with you guys and say that I’m really not sure about that anymore. Because first of all the C.S. Lewis Estate is waiting a certain period of time before they can sell the film option to a studio, and they said that could take sereval years.

      Holy crap are you kinding me, at first I thought there was no way they were going to do a reboot, but if it’s going to take sereval years before we could see another Narnia movie, than either that’s what there going to do or there won’t be anymore Narnia movies at all. I mean why does the C.S. Lewis Estate have to wait so long, I don’t get it, they don’t really explain why; why not just do it now? I don’t like this, I don’t like this one bit. Both the news that I read and the idea of a reboot, it all sucks.

      Also the C.S Lewis Estate isn’t a movie studio what are they going to do with the Narnia franchise while other studios wait, and then eventually lose there patientace, (sorry if I spelled that wrong, I’m not much of a speller) and stop caring about making the Narnia movies at all. This is all just so annoying.

      • Braden Woodburn says:

        Yeah, I don’t think a reboot is going to happen because The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe did amazing and still is at an amazing level with it’s box office amount. No way could they top that plus Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader again. Let alone, who would want to start fresh again after all these years the films have been made!?

        Still, I do find the C.S. Lewis Estate being rather annoying on this. Most franchises such as Twilight, Harry Potter, Saw, ect all want to keep making film after film as fast as possible to not only get them done, but to please the fans. I mean, if this whole "wait" is based on a law, then I guess there really is nothing to do except obey it.. although it makes no sense why to do it that is. I think Walden Media is perfect.. Walt Disney was just too greedy that they wanted to drop out so it’s their loss, and 20th Century Fox is very well of a film company too to be partnered with Walden Media.

        My main concerns about this whole delay is 1, what film to be next and 2, think of the actors ages. Yes, The Magicians Nephew would be great because it could maybe bring in more money to finish out the rest. The Silver Chair is wise too because it is next in line after Voyage of the Dawn Treader and Will Poulter is back who honestly, looks older than his character should be.

        Guess we just have to sit tight and keep our fingers crossed.

      • Dufflepud12 says:

        It’s a legal issue. They cannot legally make another Narnia movie until the moratoriam has passed, because Walden and Fox no longer have rights to the movies.

    • ratih says:

  • Narnia #1 Fan says:

    *sigh of relife* Okay! I have been so scared about the reboot! I’m soo glad thats cleared up! It may be awhile, but at least we can know it’s coming! :D

  • CitizenCairParavel says:

    I am ticked. Who is messing everything up? Walden or the Lewis estate?

  • AlovesW says:

    I really hope that if Doug Gresham does take over the Narnia franchise, that he keeps the same actors and actresses, though it may not be likely. But I really would like to see him just pick up where VoDT left off and start with the Silver Chair. I hope that’s what happens if at all. I would love to see the three remaining movies with the same actors and actresses. Nobody else can take the place of Peter, Susan, Edmund, Lucy, Caspian, and Eustace. Not one person.

    • waggawerewolf27 says:

      I don’t think that Doug Gresham could produce a movie by himself, without a big company such as Walden to assist. I understand from the article even he has to wait for a while before anything is finally decided, because of the legalities. This is what is called a moratorium, and can last for 12 to 18 months. After which there is still the question of who wants to produce the movies, and even then there is the extra time spent while scripts are written. That would certainly take more than 2 years, even for the first movie to be done.

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        they may be working on writing it now so it will be ready when the papers are all signed.

    • CitizenCairParavel says:

      I don’t see how people are viewing this as good news. Gresham is no spring chicken. Who messed all of this up? Gresham or Walden?

    • Anhun says:

      First of all, he’s only in his 60s. Second of all, even with out Gresham, fans can take some encouragement from the fact that Walden and Fox seem to be genuinely interested in making Narnia 4, whatever it is.

      • Anhun says:

        Sorry, that was meant to be a reply to Citizen Cair Paravel.

      • Samuel says:

        but, may I point out, that the reason that their option to make the films slid was because of some disagreements between the companies, and/or with the estate themselves. If they can not make decisions that are pleasing to all parties or at least differ to the controlling party (cs lewis) then they probably wouldn’t be good to finish out the series.

        Still stylistically they are the ones in my opinion most suited for the job. They just need more forethought into how the stories will be storylined and produced. Has walden ever made a "series" before? It only seems sensible that they would begin story development on several movies at once to make any plot continuity would be taken care of in advance (IE caspians accent).

    • gingerchica says:

      I completely agree. they need to use the same actors and I hope the quality of the movies is just as great. Also, I love the Silver Chair! I hope they do that next.

    • Ionic Bonding Rocks says:

      Unfortunately, due to this waiting period, I don’t think using the same actors and actresses would be a great idea. They’d all look too old, and that would ruin it for me, seeing as they’re all supposed to be children. Except in HHB… Boy, that would make a fantastic film! It has the perfect movie formula: linear plot, battles, rags-to-riches type story. If there was going to be one more Narnia film, I’d be hoping they’d stick with that.
      Unfortunately, the filmmakers seem to be more interested in MN. I love it, but it isn’t a cinematic book. It would need A LOT of changes to become a film, which, from past experiences, the filmmakers are more than likely to mess up. :(
      As for SC… with Will Poulter, in my eyes, being too old in 2 years, I’m not sure it would be the best choice. For me, the best part of VDT was his acting as Eustace, so to see a follow-on of VDT without the best part would be a major dissapointmet. :(
      So here’s fingers crossed for HHB!

      • Dancing Oak says:

        The movie industry is near or perhaps at the point where (as bad as this may sound) most characters can be realistically simulated through CGI. This may actually work in favor of the Chronicles franchise, as the original actors could convincingly *voice* their characters without actually having to look as they did when the earlier films were made.

        MN is one book which would likely make heavy use of special effects and CGI anyway, so by the time the moratorium ends and the next film is ready to be made, the question of the aging actors may be moot.

  • Aslan's #1 fan says:

    Narnia is Narnia and I will always love it even if they drop the franchise and reboot.
    But aside from Narnia have you guys heard of the movie Courageous that just came out yesterday?? It’s made by the same people who did Fireproof. Wow, talk about action, thriller, comedy, and Christian all in one. I thought I liked Fireproof a lot until I saw Courageous which beats most secular films in quality of acting, action, emotion, and message. Go see it, let’s tell Hollywood We would like to see more movies like Courageous or Narnia on the big screen.

    • Laura Andrews says:

      I want to see Courageous so bad! But the closest they’re playing it is over an hour away, so we have to wait until it comes out on DVD :(

    • gingerchica says:

      That’s cool! some guys from my church want to go see it and i think it will teach them a lot.

    • always narnian says:

      Courageous is amazing! Go see it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Really, it’s so awesome! Great message that many people need to hear today! It was BETTER than Fireproof! Wow, it was great!

      • Dylan says:

        Why did they havve to make it the same guy, again. He was the car salesman, the football coach, and just about the main star in all those movies. I mean no offense to the production studio and all that, but can they have a little bit more variety in their movies lol.

      • Aslan's #1 fan says:

        If you CAN GO see it. It’s a must, don’t go see some movie with worthless content, go see Courageous. I heard it’s going to be one of the major blockbusters in this weekend so go and support this. Thats OK if you CAN’T go but get your friends to go, post something about it on facebook, anything. There was parts I was laughing my head off, and only one other movie does that to me. I was enthrawled in the action, which is pretty beast. And the emotion, did actually make me cry a little I admit. Fifty percent of critics on Rotten Tomatoes liked it, and 88% of the audience like it. There was an applause from a full auditorium when I went. GO, GO, GO!

      • always narnian says:

        There was applausing when I went too! I know, it’s the same actor but he is like the writer/director (him and his brother) of the movies, so yeah. But, It’s so good! Support them! We need more movies like this!!!

      • Dylan says:

        Thats good that its doing well. when I heard that this movie was coming out I was like " Please dont be a bad movie", but it sounds good. they have done other good movies, so this sounds interesting.

      • always narnian says:

        I would love to go see it again, but that’s not happening. Can’t wait till it comes out on DVD. I hope they do really well, then we can have more of thier movies :) But if Fireproof did pretty well, then this one should do really well.

    • SavedByGrace says:

      Courageous was so goood!!!!!!! I went this past Friday with my parents and some of my siblings. The theater was so packed, we couldn’t sit in the same row together. Everyone there seemed to enjoy it; it makes you laugh and cry, then cry and laugh, then do it all over again. Would definitely go see it again.

      I would love it more movies like Courageous and the Narnia films were being made. There have been some good ones, but not as many as I would like.

  • gingerchica says:

    this is so sad. I cannot believe that we have to wait several years. I don’t think it’s right to split up a series like this! Ughh I am so frustrated…

  • Aslan's Girl says:

    :( Nooo… No more Narnia for 3 or 4 years?? Well, at least we know!! That feeling of not knowing what’s going to happen next is not a good one. Maybe by then the filmmakers can get their act together… maybe 3 years is enough time for them to actually READ THE BOOK! :) Anyway, I’m bummed, but hopefully this will be a good thing!

  • DaughterofAslan'scountry says:

    Can’t Walden at least renw it’s rights or something now? They didn’t think about this morotorium thing before they signed the contract? They knew it would take more than 5 years to make the films, didn’t they? A ten year old could figure that out! This is just stupid.

  • DigoryKirke says:

    why? why cant they just make the series in the correct order? since they began with the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, should they consider to do the publication order? If they consider doing the magician’s nephew to be the 4th narnia flick, then Narnia will be the only series (among LOTR, HP and Twilight) who is not in order. why cant they consider that creating the narnia flicks in order as a marketing perspective? it is my official opinion to Fox, Walden and the C. S. Lewis Estate to do The Silver Chair as the 4th; the Horse and His Boy as the 5th; the Magician’s Nephew as the 6th; and the Last Battle as the last; and The Giant Surprise: A Narnia Story, as a short DVD flick.

    • Anhun says:

      As Lewis himself said "it does not matter very much in which order anyone read them." Each book has a self-contained plot. Now some of the later books rely on earlier books for relevance or critical back story. But in the case of SC, HHB, and MN, that isn’t the case. Each one of those 3 is almost completely independent of the other 2. Different protagonists, different settings, unrelated plots. You can do those 3 in any order and it won’t make a difference.

    • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

      if they dont do the way more popular mn, the series will sink

      • Anhun says:

        More popular with whom though? If the Narnia franchise is to be successful, it needs to be accessible to new and casual fans. Many of the people who flocked to see LWW had never even heard of the other books. Some of them had only seen the 70s cartoon, some of them read the book when they were kids, and some of them had vaguely heard of a witch and a wardrobe.

        Although I personally feel that HHB is the best bet since it has the strongest LWW connection AND the most cinematic story, even SC would be a better choice since it has dynamic protagonists and a readily comprehensible plot, both of which can be marketed. MN has neither. Nobody who hasn’t read the book or doesn’t have a strong interest in Narnia to begin with would be interested in MN.

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        i think HHB would make reat, stand alone film bu t i doubt we’ll ever see that one if mn and sc are such a struggle.

      • Non-negotiable Comment says:

        I love the Chronicles as a whole, and each book is special, in its own way, but I have just never seen the appeal of ‘The Horse and His Boy’ as a standalone… anything. It’s a mildly interesting peek into the peripheral edges of the "Golden Age" of Narnia, and it’s definitely… unique… but very little of it, well… appeals… to me, beyond its role as a component of the larger overall saga. A component that could be, easily, bypassed within the universe of the film franchise. I know everyone has their favourites, but, boy, I could sleep very well if this is never adapted. I just think it would be a DREADFULLY dull film, it comes with heavy baggage, and the marketing would be ridiculously (and deceptively) Pevensie-centric. Would I love to see all of the books adapted? Absolutely. I’d be there opening night. But, if there’s one I could easily live without, and if we have to eliminate one on the basis of overall potential as a "draw", ‘The Horse and His Boy’ is it, for me.

        On the other hand, it easily would be the most affordable of the remaining books to adapt. It could be the smaller, more character-driven, film that I really wanted, to a certain extent, ‘Prince Caspian’ to be. It could work. Maybe. Sort of. There’s just, well, not much from that book that my heart longs to see come to life on-screen, and I honestly don’t see how it would appeal to the general public, beyond, perhaps, the relatively incidental Pevensie content, and the simplicity of the ‘Prince and the Pauper’ plot.

        Now, I know, as I said, that many people love this book, and I, sincerely, would greatly appreciate hearing why (not to argue, just to try and understand the reasoning behind it), but, to me, this is the one book in the series that just doesn’t make me want to love it. It’s like a combination of a dry Narnian history lesson, a heavy-handed Sunday School sermon (as opposed to a thoughtful, moving message of faith), and some antiquated cultural perceptions. Convince me, if you’d like to. I’m willing to listen. I just have never "gotten" this one, and can’t see it as an interesting film. Certainly not compared to its competition in the remaining books of the series.

  • Queen Emily the Awesome says:

    To everyone who replied to my comment: Thanks so much! You guys all make some really good points. I probably sounded kind of angry in my post, but just so we’re clear, I absolutely love this site and being able to see such a broad variety of opinions about the Narnia films and books out there. I think it’s just so cool how all Narnia fans can come here and let themselves be heard. I’ve learned so much from all of you. Thanks again!

    Narnia forever!

  • PuddleCheep says:

    At least we’ll be able to see a movie about C.S. Lewis in theatres next year!

  • narnian resident says:

    its amazing how complicated something like Narnia is being. it doesnt all clearly make sense to me. at this moment, im just trying to have faith in Doug Gresham, and any other people who share his dream and have the power to make it happen.
    you know, i really want to work in the film industry someday, mostly on cinematography and screenwriting. maybe, if the movies are continued and continued at the time frame they’ve been continuing, i could land a job on one of the movies :-) that would be a dream come true!

  • Kelly says:

    Well at least there’s no reboot. And even though we have to wait a few years, at least there is hope that there’re all going to be made and Fox and Walden are still interested in making the rest of the films. :)

  • Non-negotiable Comment says:

    A general post regarding my negativity and "attitude"…

    1) I have gone out of my way to say ANYTHING I can in a positive manner about ‘Dawn Treader’. I have REPEATEDLY mentioned my favorable opinions of the final scene, the cinematography, the beautiful end credits, and Will Poulter’s fine performance as Eustace. Perhaps your pre-conceived notions of me as being ONLY negative preclude you from seeing when I do praise some aspect of the film? You might want to consider that before you start casting stones. Just saying.

    2) I am EXTREMELY positive about the first two films, in nearly every aspect, EXCEPT the catastrophic financial planning behind ‘Prince Caspian’. I’ll go so far as to say that I am one of the more vocal DEFENDERS of that film, both in terms of how it performed, and in how it was adapted. I am NOT "negative about Narnia". I am opposed to ‘Dawn Treader’, exclusively, because it was the worst possible film at the worst possible time. In case you haven’t noticed, the franchise is, for all intents and purposes, DEAD. I UNDERSTAND that many of you love it. I am NOT trying to make you feel bad. But, it failed, utterly and miserably, in doing its part to sustain this franchise. It is NOT an accident. It is a POOR film. Much, much worse than the other two. I drove over an hour in one of the worst blizzards I have ever seen to attend that film on opening night. Is that a "negative" person? My observations are based on what I believe. I have documented, in great detail, my reasoning behind those observations. They are not randomly typed sentences meant to make anyone here feel bad. Love it all you want. My opinion should not affect what you love. But, you cannot hope for other films AND accept that poor of a product at the same time. I an not going to debate whether or not you "LIKE" something. I am trying to explain, objectively, why the film failed. If you cannot see that distinction, you will be constantly angered reading my posts. If that is the case, please don’t bother, for your own sakes.

    3) My "name", as I’ve already explained, is NOT meant to be taken seriously. I think I’m the only one who DOESN’T take it seriously. If you’ve been around here long enough, you MAY remember its origin. If you haven’t, I can’t explain it in every post.

    4) Those of you complaining about my style of writing, and how you perceive my "attitude". You are not the first to do so. You will not be the last. This is how I write. It is not an attempt to be "aloof" or "cold". It’s me. My grammar is not something I think about it. I just type. The vast majority of your problems with my attitude are, I am afraid, your own perceptions, and based very little on substance. I cannot control the perceptions of another human being. I offer my opinions in as rational a manner as I can compose them. I do not attack people personally, only their opinions, and I am as quick to praise those who warrant it, as anyone else. In short, this is me, and I’m not changing.

    Hiking Peter, I am Catholic, with evangelical sympathies. Or maybe it’s the other way around. That’s as best as I can describe myself. That’s an excellent verse, and really what I meant. Ask questions, to be sure of what you hope for.

    Oh, and one last thing. I am not going to apologize for every occasion when something I type unintentionally offends someone. However, if you ARE offended by something you see, could you at least ASK ME FIRST if that’s what I meant, before ASSUMING you know? I don’t expect many courtesies from the internet, but a chance to explain myself would be nice.

    Thank you for your attention.

    • Aslan's #1 fan says:

      Amen!
      I still doubt their going to start where they left off, the actors will be to old for one things. I think their going to reboot or something, if we like it or not. But then again…maybe they will keep going with what they have which would be nice.

  • Will says:

    I’m not sure if that’s good or bad news. At least, as you say, people are interested in finishing all seven movies. Maybe it would be better for another studio to take over? Fox kind of let the quality slip on VotDT. I also don’t know why people think TMN should be made first. Assuming that TSC and AHaHB wouldn’t do well at the box office (how does anyone know this?), don’t you still have to make them at some point? The only difference might be that you earn a profit on TMN, in order to break even or lose $ on the other two movies that come before "The Last Battle."

  • Umar says:

    Iluv narnia so much and is my best film.

  • Brock says:

    I would like to see new Narnia films: the remaining stories that haven’t been made into films yet. I would like to see them done respectful of the content in the books, and not deviating from them. I don’t mind waiting a while. If they’re going to deviate as they did in the last two films, then personally I’d just rather they didn’t film them, or wait until someone more skilled to translate the stories onto screen is available.

  • Not Of This World says:

    More time to wait for next Narnia movie :-(
    More time on NarniaWeb :-)

  • Queen Susan the Gentle says:

    Oh I wanna be in one of them so bad! Being Polly would be so amazing and so would being Jill…. *fingers crossed* But I am sooo happy they aren’t done with making them.

    • FOR NARNIA! says:

      Yes!! Lol

    • Low Queen B. says:

      Yeah, my ultimate dream is to play Polly Plummer. But I am probably too tall. I’m 5’8" & 1/2. So….Yeah.

      • Dylan says:

        They would probably alow that. Just think about how old Edmund was in VDT, he was much older and taller then he was in the book, so I think you could get the part.

      • Aslan's BFF says:

        I thought I was tall too, until you said 5′ 8" 1/2. I’m a measly 5′ 6" 1/2, blond-haired, blue-eyed, and can do a pretty good English accent.

      • Low Queen B. says:

        True, but still, there’s the one little problem of an accent… I might be able to pull it off. Like, the only time I ever use the accent is once a year at a madrigal dinner, and there, everyone looks at me weirdly. :)

      • Dylan says:

        A british accent is easy too fake, its getting the right dialect and sound thats the hard part.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Yeah, like the cockney accent is super easy. You shouldn’t have much trouble. Australian is really easy too, mate! (Pun intended) So’s Italian.

      • Dylan says:

        Italian is pretty easy, but the easiest of all time is the Canadian dialect eh?

  • GeneralThor says:

    I think that thye should do Silver chair.. not just because its the best one. but also Eustuce is in it and he is only a few years older in silver chair then he is in votdt. It would make more sense to make a movie with a actor that you actually need. in MN you can always find some new actors sense there are no people in that book in the others.

    • Anhun says:

      In the books, Eustace is only supposed to be a few months older. If they keep Will P, they’ll have to alter the beginning a bit so that it makes more sense. He can’t talk about a recent change when he’s obviously aged years since his last Narnia experience.

    • Hiking Peter says:

      Hey! Eustace could be in college!……

  • FOR NARNIA! says:

    I really really hope they make another movie. I was super disappointed in Fox when they made Voyage of the Dawn Treader. ): I HOPE Disney is able to do it again. LET’S GO DISNEY!! :DD

  • stateofgreen says:

    This is a good thing, bad that we have to wait, good in that it would allow a fresh reboot….but I wouldn’t want them to remake LWW-VDT….I’d want them to pick up where they left off…as weird as that sounds…..some time in our lifetimes please!

  • Mary not so full of grace says:

    This is awful. All the goodwill from the first three movies will be lost, the teams disbanded, the momentum gone. For people who think it’s easy to regenerate that after a few years, you’re dreaming. Whoever dropped the ball on this one should be fired. Narnia on the big screen is dead as far as we know it. What a waste of Will Poulter.

    • Aslan's #1 fan says:

      Yeah, Maybe…I only see a reboot in the future for Narnia

    • Non-negotiable Comment says:

      There’s an awful lot of wisdom in your observations, Mary. "Waste" is the perfect description of the Walden years, post-2005. Wasted talent, wasted money, and, worst of all, a glorious OPPORTUNITY wasted, that may never come back again.

      No studio is going to spend a dime to "reboot" this franchise. Not in the foreseeable future, to be certain. It would be financial suicide, and sheer lunacy. Continuing it MAY be a REMOTE possibility. Rebooting? No.

      • Dylan says:

        It would be a financial disaster. If there will ever be a reboot of Narnia, we are gonna have to wait for a long while.

      • Anhun says:

        Yeah, Dylan, I can sort of picture a modernized reboot 30 years from now. Not saying I expect it, but I wouldn’t be scratching my head wondering what on earth they were thinking, as I would if they rebooted much sooner.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Whoa, scary thought. Please no reboot! Ugh, I’m shivering just to think about it. Well, for one thing, nobody can make a better LWW. Pc was pretty good, but not great, and Vdt was just a disappointment. So, maybe, in following the slight downhill-ness of these films, they just might make a reboot. If that makes any sense at all for all of you NarniaWebbers out there, I really don’t know.

      • Dylan says:

        I think they should re-do VDT, using same exact cast, ship, cg, everything, just leave out the green mist and add in parts from the book.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Yeah…That would work. I kinda liked the green mist though. Yes, I know, I’m really weird. It was an interesting twist.

      • freshynfs says:

        I respectably disagree with Hiking Peter, I’m sure someone can make a much better LWW movie. Not saying that the LWW was bad or that the entire movie was bad, but there was a lot of things that got cut from the movie that was in the books and substituted for scenes which I thought lost some of the moments we could have had much better in the film.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Yeah, but I was thinking of the cast. Georgie was Lucy. And Aslan…I took my Mom to see the movie at the theater, and when he walked out she said, "Ohhhh…He’s beautiful!". Not that I am arguing with you or anything, but, yes, I guess they could do a bit better.

      • Dylan says:

        Apparently your mom has a taste for lions? JK. But I completely agree with you 100 percent, the cast was PERFECT. I dont really know if there were any scenes in the book that were left out of the movie that were real "special" scenes.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        Well, not a taste for lions in particular, but, hey. :) (he was quite the handsome lion)

      • Dylan says:

        He is about as handsome as lions get.

      • Hiking Peter says:

        But he looked a bit ill in the third movie. I know Apted wanted to make him look like a "real" lion, but, it wasn’t "Aslan". You know?

      • Dylan says:

        He was very different. I wish they kept him the same.

    • Anhun says:

      Mary, you and I disagree on two points:

      1. Momentum. Can a lapse of time kill a series’ momentum? Definitely. Is this a serious concern for the Narnia series? No. Why not? Because the Narnia franchise has no momentum left to lose. VDT’s weak opening bears that out.

      2. The "death" of the Narnia series. I would say that another Narnia movie would be a risk, whether it comes out next year, or ten years from now. But, its a risk that may just pay off. Whether or not studios see that potential is anyone’s guess.

  • BILLY says:

    i just say meh… movie people are being to difficult… agreed?

  • Physchoe says:

    Two Things:

    1. Dawn Threader was way better than Prince Caspian. The 2nd movie was the least magical and went on for way too long in the end.

    2. Neither "The Silver Chair" or "Magician’s Nephew" need even Dawn Threader’s budget to be done properly. Also, whining about a 415 million dollar gross on a 155 million dollar budget is outrageous. This film has outgrossed X-Men First Class, Green Lantern, and Captain America, and we can pretty much expect sequels to 2 out of the 3 in some form or another.
    So why does Narnia always face such jeopardy?

    If you ask me (for the thousandth time), "The Silver Chair" cold be made on a 130 million dollar budget, clock in at about 2hrs, and turn out perfect. The book is probably the easiest to adapt out of the whole series.

    If you ask me again, Walden Media are just money grabbers who cry everytime a film doesn’t make 700 mil. I bet Fox would love to keep this franchise.

    • Physchoe says:

      Speaking of Fox, recall they were in a lot of financial trouble, and then, boom-they get Avatar that makes them billions practically, and then Narnia seems to go so well (but not according to officials), and boom, we hear no word. MGM goes bankrupt though. Maybe they are wishing they’d grabbed Narnia too.

      • Dylan says:

        Another thing Psycho or whatever you call yourself, how do you justify PC being better then VDT???

      • Dylan says:

        Oh, and you can probably expect sequels from ALL of those movies. If Im not mistaken, GL has a planned sequel, Cpatain America has a planned sequel, and so does First class.

      You could not adapt either of those books, in any recognizable form, for a dime less than what they spent on ‘Dawn Treader’. Not today, and certainly not years from now. Films are expensive. Special effects films are VERY expensive. There’s no more fat to be trimmed, and still give the filmmakers the freedom to tell these stories with the care that they deserve. They’ve already taken away the 35mm film. "Cost" is not the issue at this point. ‘Dawn Treader’ failed to perform domestically. THAT is why they’ve pulled the plug. Read on, and I’ll explain.

      _______________________________________________

      Here’s why: your conclusions are way, way off. "Gross" is RELATIVE. DOMESTIC gross is far, far more important to the financial success of a film than worldwide totals. You CANNOT compare the "success" of two different films by looking at their worldwide totals. It’s a meaningless number, in and of itself. ‘Dawn Treader’ did very well internationally, yes. Unfortunately, that means next to nothing, as the studios receive a FRACTION of the international gross from exhibitors. Hollywood films make their money DOMESTICALLY, and, specifically, during the first three weeks of domestic release. This is the critical market, and the critical time. Their take drops off sharply, and increasingly, after this time.

      When you compare their respective domestic totals for the first three weeks in release, ‘Captain America’, ‘Green Lantern’, and ‘X-Men: First Class’ ALL performed significantly better than ‘Dawn Treader’. It’s not even close, really.

      ‘Captain America’ $149,760,206
      ‘X-Men: First Class’ $126,214,928
      ‘Green Lantern’ $106,583,956
      ‘Dawn Treader’$76,673,622

      Looking at those numbers, and expecting "2 or 3 sequels" is wishful thinking. As an aside, the term "sequel" shouldn’t even be used in connection with the Chronicles, and thinking of them in those terms has been disastrous for the film franchise. These are seven different literary properties that have to be evaluated on their own, individual merit. Walden failed, miserably, to comprehend this.

      In 2001, perhaps. NOT 2011. They could certainly make *a* film for that much. I’d prefer to see a GOOD one.

      I’d LOVE to see ‘The Silver Chair’ next. But, everyone forgets that half of the book takes place underground, in the dark, often in confined spaces. I don’t know how that can be considered easier to adapt than ‘The Horse and His Boy’, which would contain a fraction of the effects shot, much fewer elaborate sets, and is an infinitely simpler story. Definitely not my preferred choice amongst the remaining books, as I state above in this thread, but it’s almost certainly "easier" to adapt, and THAT would be your one and only shot at a lower cost Narnia film. Not by much, but…

      _______________________________________________

      As much as Walden are responsible for the awful product that was the last film, and for burning money like it was going out of style with ‘Prince Caspian’, I tremble with great fear and trepidation at the thought of FOX adapting the remaining books without their influence. I also think they are ripped on far too much around here, for not wanting to throw good money after bad. As much as I love Narnia, there is no way I would ever invest a cent of my own money in any film not called: ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe’. Well, maybe I’d toss a few bucks into the ring for ‘The Magician’s Nephew’, but, my point is, this is a very brave thing they tried here. Well… daring, anyway. Did it work? Not always, and not always very well. But, they TRIED, when no one else would. When many thought this franchise was impossible to tackle. I think these recent events are, for all intents and purposes, their admission that they simply no longer know how to make these films work. No shame in that. They have families to feed, and, I do not blame them, at all, for abandoning ship at this point, if that is their ultimate decision. I am much more grateful to them than I am angry or frustrated. As we all should be. If it isn’t working for them, let someone else try, and let’s all move on. But enough of the "crying" nonsense. It’s a logical business decision at this point. Anyone thinking this franchise is a good investment right now, I have some seaside property in Saskatchewan for sale…

      • Dylan says:

        Hmmm….I know your name is not to be taken literally, but how do you negotiate THAT??? There is no more room for agument or discussion, Non just proved an exellant point.

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        i think they could do a pixar style version of the whole series that would be cool. and everyone being animation might be less problematic.

      • Non-negotiable Comment says:

        Well, that quality of animation is very expensive, too. The last four feature films released by Pixar have cost an average of $189 million. More than, I suspect, any studio (or combination of studios) would want to invest in a very risky prospect like Narnia, at this point. And, really, even if it weren’t costly, I just wouldn’t care to see that. Pixar does a great job, but I want to see these stories adapted to as real a world as possible, with as many real, breathing people as possible. Anything else would seem really empty. To me, at least.

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        well, i would accept a decent animation of some sort that had appeal to adults too, that is true to the books and kept the spirituality intact- the REAL meaning and the whole purpose of the series i the first place. and im thinking an entirely animated series so when you get to taking apes, etc, which is expensive, you can do it. look how little aslan shows up now cause he’s so expensive. Shift the ape has a big role, plus Jewel the unicorn, etc. plus thecreation and destruction of narnia could just be drawn anyway they want it instead of mixing in live actors with it. im just thinking pricewise the story gets pricey. too many talking animals, very costly in the method they use now. heck, i finally saw the 1979 cartoon and that has it’s charms, i can just imagine a better version of that would be nice, if it was done properly. i just really want to see the real stpories, all seven, done effectively. look at all the modern disney cartoons that were effectively done, like Lion King. something on that order.

  • Lori says:

    The rest of the films NEED to be made. It shouldn’t be a game about if it made Fox or Disney ‘enough money’. All three movies covered their budget several times over, and continue to bring in incremental sales. It might not have the pull-thru toy sales of other franchises, but for the sake of the message, the Chronicles of Narnia DESERVES to be made into the best series of movies ever.

    • Non-negotiable Comment says:

      "All three movies covered their budget several times over"

      No, they did not. Think about that for a moment. If this were true, do you really think there’d be any debate about making more films? Film studios receive a PORTION of the revenue from films, NOT all of it. When you see "Star Wars opens to $100 million dollar weekend…", FOX/LucasFilm aren’t MAKING $100 million that weekend. THey receive a predetermined PERCENTAGE of the receipts. Only the first film was profitable. ‘Dawn Treader’ will come close to breaking even, once all of the broadcast/pay-per-view/DVD revenue has been accounted for in a few years, but has not, as of yet. ‘Prince Caspian’ was a financial disaster. Mickey Mouse’s grandchildren will be paying for that into their old age. The fact that we want more films doesn’t mean that other people should throw their hard-earned money into a giant inferno to make it happen. Any future Narnia films are going to have to be better managed, better planned, and produced by passionate, talented creative people who know how to make art thrive on restriction. Not to mention a studio willing to risk the venture to begin with. This COULD happen. I hope it DOES happen. It is going to take time, IF it happens.

      • Dylan says:

        Disney made a good decision by dropping the project, I hope really bad that Fox does well with the next movies so that they wont have to drop it. Yes, the Chronicles DESERVES to be the best series ever made, but looking at how bad VDT did, looking at this realistically, it might just end up being really bad.

  • ErgoKing says:

    I’m glad there is a moratorium. Maybe that will allow someone who actually trusts the original stories of the books will have the opportunity to make a Narnia film that reflects something, anything of C. S. Lewis’ original intent. The three films that have been produced thus far have been increasingly hostile to the original narrative and the original point of the books. And I do not believe that Walden Media deserves the right to continue mutilating Narnia for their own purposes.

    • Dylan says:

      "I do not believe that Walden Media deserves the right to continue mutilating Narnia for their own purposes."

      Mutilating eh? I dont see how LWW and PC were mutilated. I can see how it might come acroos that VDT was mutilated, but to say LWW and PC is a little bit of a stretch.

    • Aslan's Country! says:

      No WAY! Im sorry i try and not get involved sometimes but this is funny. They mutilated LWW??? I understand if you say they mest up a few things in VDT. They also mest up things in PC for sure. LWW was amazing and perfect. Yes it had minor differances from the book but it really brought the magic of Narnia to life and with conviction.

    Well I guess that’s the end then. It’s a shame Fox didn’t give it another chance like their doing with Percy Jackson. For those complaining about the films not being 100% faithful to the book you’ll find few adaptions are heck even Harry Potter had some of the best parts cut out or changed and then their are one’s like Ella Enchanted which was nothing like the book, the Narnia films may have not been the best adaptions but they also weren’t the worst.

Plus they kind gave a hint that a new fims was going to be made at the end of the Voyage of the Dawn Treader when Eustace’s mum said ‘Jill Pole is here to see you’ ummm well big clue that they should do the silver chair!

    When I first read this, I was quite disappointed. However, I thought back to when I saw The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, and how the story was completely changed. For that matter, LWW had some notable deviations as well. I was very disappointed with the Dawn Treader after watching it, and if that is how the rest of the movies would be done, I’d rather they were not done at all. Maybe the next company to buy the rights will stick to the story a little better, and stop trying to improve on Lewis’ genius. I don’t want to have to wait for the other movies, but I’d rather wait and have them done right.

    Hey guyz. It’s me! If you remember me. I really really really wanna audition 4 a narnia movie so if anyone could give me advice on what do do…ur welcome 2! I’ll try to come on here at least once a week. I really hope there will be a new narnia movie coming out…and if so…I hope it’s the silver chair. I’d LUV 2 get a role in that movie. This would all be a dream come true. So yea…I’m back!

  • ILoveGeorgie says:

    All I can say isss that if they don’t decide to make more narnia films……I WILL DIE! And personally i can not for the life of me see why they diddn’t make good profits! I for one foud NOTHING wrong with them I loved each and everyone one of them INSIDEOUT! And aren’t the fans and others the people that will most impact it. Walden and fox and stuff should give the world one of those professional votes! B’cos we want more narnia!!…….Well I do..!

  • GemmaLaurie says:

    Hello lovlies :P

    It’s me, Gemma. I used gemmajones on the other page :)Some of you guys may remember me from Narniafans page and now I’m here! Anyway…

    I knew that it was never gonna be a positive outcome in this whole next film buisness but I’m still so annoyed! I really wanted to audition for Jill Pole or Polly but seeing as it’ll be more than 2 years away I’ll be over 18!! GAH! Well I suppose Will Poulter IS older than 18already so it wont make that much of a difference…. gah who am I kidding. Anyway, if you want to check out my "audition videos" (that I was gonna pick the best one after I put up more and send it in the the casting directors….) then come on down and check out my channel!!! http://www.youtube.com/user/MaxRideJ?feature=mheeWoo…. aahh I’m so sad now -___- xx

    • Lucia says:

      I hope they’ll make next film soon…xxx

      • ILovegeorgie says:

        Gemma! Your here! yay! :) I’m Sad too! It was so much better last year how there was the Jill Pole page and all we had was positive hopes! and it’s REALLY hard to believe that was a Year ago! I Will totally freak out if they don’t make more narnia movies!! Hump.. We should ask them to do another Jill Pole page regaurding the odds now of usss auditioning now if it will take longer, :)

      • narniafan16 says:

        Yeaaaa they should realize the tons of Narnia jill pole fans are suppuorting narnia!!!!

    • EllaWhoWantsToActInANarniaMovie... says:

      OWH!!!! I really would like to do Aravis…. But I’m from Holland…. And I don’t have an agent….But I REALLLY (!!!) hope you will get the Jill Pole role…. I don’t know why, I just hope so…. Sorry for the dots, I don’t know why I typed them…. (ARGH!!! AGAIN!!!!) Sorry.

      • narniafan16 says:

        hey Ella! It’s nice 2 meet u. Welcome to the-group-of-want-to-be-in-narnia-movies LOL. It’s ok…I know how u feel…its like u rlly have a big dream 2 get into the narnia movies. I also don’t have an agent so don’t worry! Actually, idk abt some people but i think ALL of us don’t have any agents! i heard that it’s really hard to get one. So have you had any acting experience yet? I haven’t really :( lol. Thx for watching my video if u did. Was it good or bad? Thx anyway xxxxnarniafan16
        ps. maybe you should change ur name to a little shorter one like NarniaElla or something cuz then it’s kinda easier to remember lol

  • narniafan16 says:

    oh yea and by the way, i think i might be getting into singing aruditions tho! Me and my friends are making a singing band. And i’m gonna try to audition for the next school play if possible :D Or maybe i should just take acting class cause i dont even know enough abt acting! My friends mom makes commercials and she knows some agents…and she told me that she left a note at this guys office to see if he could reccomend agents or something like that. But he hasn’t ever replied :( Wish you guys and me luck! 4 NARNIA!! I can’t wait to get posters!! :)

  • narniafan16 says:

    Yay finally a new page! And I’m the first to comment on it. LOL :D

    • Narniarox says:

      So guys, has anyone heard anything new about the making of the next movie?? I keep hearing different stories! It’s gonna be SC, it’s gonna be MN. Will they make up their mind? a high school not too far away from me is putting on LLW and they just had auditions but I couldnt audition for it because I dont go there! grr. but I guess it’s fine becuase I dont know how, but they’re making it a musical… strange. but my school is doing Alls Well that Ends Well by Shakespeare and I’m going to be playing one of the gentlemen :).

      • narniafan16 says:

        And i also heard that they might re-boot it! But that would kinda suck to be honest. But then we could all have a chance of playing lucy, and that is the character that i REALLY would want 2 play but obviously i cant x) They still are making up their mind so we’ll probably have to wait until they finnaly make the descision. But theres so many problems that go along with each movie they could play…cuz when they made LWW they didnt plan ahead x(. First of all, Will Poulter! He’s like 19 years old!!
        And jill…was 9 or 10 in the book. Maybe they could re-cast eustace? Idkkkk.

  • Narniarox says:

    well they made him look young in VDT so they can probobly do it again. And i think all of the characters are older than C.S. wanted them to be. if they start casting and writing the script now, I think they might be able to finish SC by the time he’s 21. and then it depends if they decide to do MN after. lets not forget Eustace is also in LB. actually all of them are in LB! but then again it all depends on timing and whether they want to change it a lot.

    • Narniarox says:

      and I even think this is the re-boot! I have a bunch of Narnia movies that my mom bought me and they are NOT our actors. they combined PC and VDT. they also did SC. I wanted to watch them but I haven’t found the time. I think they might be the Narnia from the generation before. who knows?
