Fan-Made Posters for Netflix’s Narnia Go Viral

It’s been a busy week for Narnia fans on Twitter.

Narnia fan-page Portal a Narnia shared seven posters based on “what production might look like” alongside Netflix’s official logo. A user posted them to Twitter and quickly amassed over 275,000 likes.

While convincing fan-made posters, these are not official.

Which book are you most looking forward to seeing adapted by Netflix? Do you think these posters do a good job of representing Narnia?

    What are the Lion, Witch and Wardrobe and Silver Chair posters meant to represent in those books?

    • Aslan#1Fan says:

      It seems to me, that the poster for The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe is showing the adult Lucy riding toward the entrance of the wardrobe at the end of the book. And The Silver Chair poster, seems to not represent any specific scene of the book, but to represent the Green witch and her murderous Menace. =D

    My condolences to anyone who saw these circulating the internet and thought they were real for a minute….I also got fooled by a fan poster a couple weeks ago!

    These are really cool, however. I especially like the “Horse and His Boy” one.

      Yeah, the art had my heart in my throat for a minute….!

      Thanks. It didn’t fool me, but it does reminds me of the time I was fooled for a minute by the fake ‘Silver Chair movie’ announcement. You know: The one which claimed Thomas Newman was doing the music and the Revenant’s production designer was doing the art work. I nearly cried when all that was exposed as fake. (I loved Thomas Newman music and the Revenant’s earthy production look.) Alas, there was “ no truth to it”. 🙁 😉

    I’m wondering (among many other things) how Netflix will present Shift in “The Last Battle”- as an orangutan or as a gorilla?

    Saw these on Twitter recently… I think they’re well done. My two favorites are the SC and LWW posters. Even though the one for SC doesn’t show a scene from the book, I like how it shows the LotGK. I also like the one for LWW because, instead of showing what you might expect, like a wardrobe or lamppost, you see the adult Lucy when she finds the wardrobe again. At least, I think that’s what it’s showing. Also, I like that she appears to have blonde hair, like in the book.

    Too bad these aren’t real, but I hope they will get the attention of Netflix.

      I like the Voyage of the Dawn Treader one best myself. Does anyone know if it’s original or taken from something else?

      • Impending Doom says:

        I believe they’re all taken from pre-existing sources.

        I’m not sure where VDT artwork is from specifically.

    I’m looking forward to the last Battle. I am interested to see what they do with it.

    hello, I am sorry to inform you, that the fanmade Netflix poster of the horse and his boy is a photo the page stole from me and the photographer. I own the horse, and neither I or the photographer have given permission to use the image for this poster. this is breaking copyright law, and I kindly ask you to remove the photo from your article.

  7. Andrew says:

    The Magician’s Nephew one is my favorite!

    Artistically they’re interesting, but as a (fake) promo for Narnia, I reckon they’re pretty awful. What on earth is the one for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe meant to be portraying?? There’s nothing there that is even faintly recognisable as “Narnia” (and Narnia is quite a recognisable brand by now!) — they could be posters for just about any generic medieval-style drama. And they look implicitly like they’re promoting a series that’s aimed at adults or at least teens. Narnia has got to appeal to children — it’s not ONLY for children, of course, but that’s the audience Lewis had in mind when he wrote the books. And it makes me even more uncomfortable to see from Ronja’s comment here that at least one of the fan-made posters was breaching copyright law by using someone else’s photograph without permission. Quite possibly they all are. Really not good, I’m sorry to say. Here’s hoping Netflix, when they do them for real, will do a lot better!!

    • Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

      I also find them pretty, but I rather feel like you’re correct… while I think a PG-13 adaption would be rather necessary for some of the books (namely LB) I’d believe them if they said the posters were for a different “mature” franchise like LOTR or GOT (except for the MN one, because I like the detail of the green and yellow rings)

      Also, yeah the copyright infringement is NOT okay on the half of the creators. They had taken HHB down by the time I looked, so I thought for several confused moments that they mislabeled LWW because the horse looks like Bree

    These are recently made by a fan who runs a Narnia group for Latin Americans, Narnia Portal. I have spoken to her on FB and she seems genuine and pleasant.
    Hasn’t it been a fun week!?

  10. Cleander says:

    Ah yes, I remember seeing these some time ago… I think it was too soon after the purchase announcement to seem legit so I didn’t think too much about it.
    They’re really cool though!

    My main issue: It’s ‘The Voyage of THE Dawn Treader,’ not ‘The Voyage of Dawn Treader.’
    Otherwise, they look pretty cool.
