Opinion: Sequel? Prequel? Reboot? What now?


In the middle of a news drought, fans have a tendency to let their imaginations run wild on what the future could hold. In this video, I embrace that tendency and examine possible routes Walden Media could take for a fourth Narnia film.


1. Sequel: The Silver Chair

  • Fourth book to be published (1953)
  • Logical next chapter
  • Will Poulter’s age
  • Set up in Dawn Treader film

2. Prequel: The Magician’s Nephew

  • More popular book
  • Clear connection to the first film
  • The opportunity to give Tilda Swinton a prominent role again.

3. Reboot: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

  • Start from scratch: New cast, new crew
  • Would need to be fundamentally different from Adamson’s version. (Animation? PG13?)

4. Reboot: The Magician’s Nephew

  • Re-cast Aslan and The White Witch

5. Prequel (to VDT): The Horse and His Boy

  • The Pevensies would likley be given bigger roles

6. Re-read the books! I have read each book a dozen times, and I’m still discovering new things.

How would you feel if Walden announced a LWW reboot? Scroll to the bottom of the homepage and vote now!

    I knew what you meant praying pevensie.The worst part about posting a comment is the spell
    checker not telling me how to spell something right when I'm in a hurry!

    Sorry about the odd spacing.I guess I hit the wrong button!;)

  7. Praying Pevensie says:

    Thank you Avra. = )
    I don't know why I do that. I think it's like what you said-hurry. I really am a good speller in real, school, life. ( just so you know) I didn't even notice the spacing! It was a thoughtful comment. Thanks!

    Hey glumPuddle, I loved your video! I am thinking of making a short film of my own, what software programs did you use – especially for the graphics (which were awesome)?
    If anyone else has advice feel free to reply. :o)
