Netflix is going to draw for Pixar to revive Narnia

According to Hollywood Reporter, the giant of the streaming would prepare both a series and movies, all of which should be carried out under the supervision of Aldrich. Mark Gordon, Douglas Gresham and Vincent Sieber are expected to be executive producers of the series and producers of the films. The plan is to aim wide with many stories of the universe, Narnia, are told in a way that is entangled between the films and the series. This announcement comes after the announcement last October of a deal on several years between the holding of the author, C. s. Lewis Company, and Netflix.

The Chronicles Of Narnia are a series of seven books written by Clive Staples Lewis, published between 1950 and 1956. The work has already undergone a number of adaptations under the umbrella of Disney and Fox. In the cinema, three adaptations are already outputs between 2005 and 2010, of quality unfortunately decreasing since the first episode, but very good. The new films had to be developed in the years 2010, but Netflix has apparently abandoned this idea when she signed with C. s. Lewis Company in 2018.

The return in grand style of a saga classic

A gamble for Netflix, which attacks a franchise fame to the fanbase picky. So far, only three of the seven books of the saga have been adapted : insufficient for Netflix, which wants to treat the entire. Aldrich will thus have the challenge of re-engaged fans after a third episode (The Odyssey of the Passeur d Aurore) in the scenario considered to be too disjointed and not enough work. We hope, however, find the same quality of production : the public had voted, almost unanimously, the quality of the special effects and the realization, as evidenced by the reviews on Rotten Tomatoes.

C. s. Lewis also made the news because an auction. According to the BBC, Raab Collections, a collector of historical documents, separates a series of 29 letters which the author exchanged with an american family, the Kilmers, whose eight children had written to discuss his work. The starting price is fixed at 110000$.
