See Ben Barnes in Netflix’s “Shadow and Bone”

Ben Barnes as General Kirigan

While Narnia fans continue to wait for the expected Netflix adaptation, another fantasy series is being brought to the streaming platform this year starring Ben Barnes (Walden’s Prince Caspian).

Shadow and Bone is based on multiple series by Leigh Bardugo collectively known as the Grishaverse.

Shadow and Bone premieres on Netflix on April 23rd, 2021. Will this fantasy series based on books be a good indicator of what Narnia fans might expect in the future?

    Ben’s outfit in that picture, and the dim, Underland-ish surroundings, reminds me a little bit of when the questers first meet Rilian in The Silver Chair, when he’s dressed all in black and looks “a little bit like Hamlet.”

      It’s rather aesthetically pleasing is I do say so myself!

      This caught my attention because apparently Ben’s character is supposed to be somewhat of a mystery to non-book fans. I’ve only read the Six of Crows duology so I’m not super familiar with his role, but Netflix changed his character’s name. So secretly important character seems to be the aesthetic.
