Narnia Movie FAQ

Since 2003, NarniaWeb has been proud to provide the most accurate, up-to-date news and information about the Narnia films. Here are a few of the most common questions we’ve received about the films. If you don’t see the information that you are looking for, take a look around the rest of the site, search our news archives, browse the forum, or ask us a question.

When will The Silver Chair come out?

A release date has not been announced. Last we heard, Douglas Gresham is hoping for a late 2018 release date.

Is The Silver Chair a reboot?

Here is Director Joe Johnston's answer to that question: "Everything is new. This is the beginning of a brand new trilogy. We will make reference to characters and events in the other films as the book does, but think of this as the beginning of an all-new trilogy." Since there are four books remaining in the series, it is not clear what is meant by "trilogy."

Is Walden still involved?

No, Walden Media will not be involved with The Silver Chair. The film will be financed by TriStar, eOne and The Mark Gordon Company with Sony and eOne distributing.

How about the cast and crew? Will anybody from the previous films return?

Director Joe Johnston said he does not expect any of the original cast to return.

How can I audition for the movie?

We’re quite a ways away from any casting news, but for those who are truly serious about auditioning for the movie, you have some time to start preparing. Here is a webpage from with some excellent tips on how to pursue an acting career.
For ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,’ casting directors went to schools in the U.K. and held auditions for the roles of the Pevensies. We don’t know if the new production team will do the same thing for characters like Jill Pole, but it’s a good idea to get an agent to help you look into when and where auditions are being held.
Finally, we here at NarniaWeb do not have any involvement in the casting process. While we love hearing from our fans, we can't help you if you write to us asking how to get a part in the movie. If we do find out any news we can publicly share, we will post it on our front page news.
