Source: Netflix’s Narnia Still in Development

It has been nearly three years since Netflix announced they were developing “new series and film projects” based on The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis.

Filmmaking takes time, and the pandemic has put even the most high-profile projects on hold. But, understandably, many fans have grown weary of waiting for news about Netflix’s Narnia. And some have started to wonder if the project has quietly met the same fate as Joe Johnston’s The Silver Chair movie. There have been no official announcements from Netflix since Matthew Aldrich took the helm two years ago.

According to a source close to the project, Netflix’s Narnia adaptations remain in active development. We cannot provide any additional details. It is possible there is still a long road ahead, but at the time of this writing, things are moving forward.

Hopefully, it will be worth the wait.

Aslan is on the move.

    Unfortunately, I’m inclined to agree that Netflix will likely remove all references to Christianity from the series. It would be a terrible disservice to the spirit of the books and a departure from the intent of the author. We’ve seen this in places like the newer disappointing Disney adaptation of Madeleine L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time,” which was clearly a Christian novel, but the movie bears no resemblance. Still, it’ll be interesting to see what Netflix does with Narnia.

    I don’t consider Focus on the Family to be a fundamentalist Christian group. They don’t recommend separating oneself entirely from the culture like some people in one of the churches I went to when I was younger did. They had been making radio dramas for years that were very good quality, such as Adventures in Odyssey and adaptions of classic books. Many of the people who worked on Adventures in Odyssey also worked in Hollywood and wrote children’s books. So, they weren’t the type of organization to say, “You have to watch this movie because you are a Christian.” Their work speaks for itself.
    I do enjoy watching a lot of the Christian movies, and often they either succeed in theology or cinematics, but usually not both. But there are many secular movies that are not well made, it is just that we are very unlikely to hear about them; whereas poorly made Christian movies are marketed to Christian circles, so we hear about them.
