Excellent! We really do enjoy these, and would LOVE to see all of the books adapted, along with the first three!
Despite the latest film version of The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader not doing as well as its predessecors in the box office, Walden Media has confirmed that they are still planning to continue the series, with the prequel novel The Magician's Nephew as the next one to go into production!
President Michael Flaherty explains:
“We are starting to talk to Fox and talk to the C.S. Lewis estate now about the ‘Magician’s Nephew’ being our next film. If we can all agree to move forward, then what we would do is find someone to write the script. So, it could still be a couple of years.”
Although we're a little confused as to why they're switching up the order of the series, The Magician's Nephew is a stand-alone story with its own characters, and we think would probably be the best of the remaining novels to adapt, if they are indeed looking to breathe some new life into the Narnia movies!
We're excited to see what kind of direction they take this story! It's one of our childhood favesies!
