Netflix’s CHRONICLES OF NARNIA Production to Begin in 2024

By Movieguide® Contributor

While little is known about Greta Gerwig’s upcoming adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ “The Chronicles of Narnia,” Netflix’s head of film recently revealed that production will likely begin within the next year.

“Well, I think people know that we’re aspirationally trying to get Greta Gerwig’s [THE CHRONICLES OF] NARNIA together and get that movie, which will be next year,” Scott Stuber, Head of Netflix Film, told Collider.

Netflix acquired the right to Lewis’ classic story in 2018 but only recently decided what they plan to do with the content. Earlier this year, the streaming giant announced Greta Gerwig would helm at least two movies that will bring audiences to Narnia.

“I haven’t even really started wrapping my arms around it,” Gerwig said about Narnia in July. “I’m properly scared of it, which is a good place to start. I think when I’m scared, it’s always a good sign. Maybe when I stop being scared, it’ll be like, ‘Okay. Maybe I shouldn’t do that one.’ No, I’m terrified of it. It’s extraordinary. And so we’ll see, I don’t know.”

The upcoming Narnia adaptations are just one step in Netflix’s plan to increase its output of established IPs and original content.

“We’ve tried to be aggressive in those places you’ve noticed,” Stuber said. “We went out and got the C.S. Lewis library. We went out and got [Roald] Dahl, so we have an opportunity to make some of those animated features around Charlie and some of those great titles.”

The Hollywood Reporter stated, “There is no official announcement but the New York reported that Gerwig has a deal to direct two films in author C.S Lewis’ NARNIA franchise.” 

Additionally IDN reported, “According to a recent profile piece in The New Yorker, Gerwig will helm at least two Narnia movies for Netflix as part of the streamer’s long-gestating plans to bring the beloved Chronicles of Narnia series to life through multiple movies and TV shows.”
