“Hey Netflix, Here’s How to Do Narnia Right” | Opinion
In addition to reporting the latest news, we are going to start occasionally sharing high quality fan-generated content from around the web.
YouTuber Houston Coley has posted a video where explains what he thinks sets The Chronicles of Narnia apart from The Lord of the Rings and Game of Thrones, and expresses his hopes for the Narnia adaptations in development at Netflix.
A few prompts for the comments section:
- Do you agree that the later Narnia movies focused too much on lore and not enough on wonder?
- Coley argues that the basis of the Narnia books is “more sci-fi than people realize.” What does he mean by that and do you agree?
- What do you think he means by wanting Netflix to embrace the “weirdness” of Narnia?
Fact Check: Coley references “rumors” about Netflix developing spinoff Narnia series that expand on the canon, but this is merely speculation from fans. He also says Netflix is “patterning” their adaptations after Game of Thrones, which may be an overstatement based on comments by Mark Gordon. Here is everything we know about the adaptations in development at Netflix.
