New ‘Chronicles Of Narnia’ Movie ‘The Silver Chair’ Announced

The Chronicles of Narnia

The Chronicles of Narnia movies, which are based on the books of author C.S. Lewis, never quite seemed to pop as a franchise like The Lord of the Rings or Harry Potter, for example. The movies did well enough at the box office—the first and best movie, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, doing a massive $745 million worldwide, and its sequels, Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader scoring $419 million and $415 million, around double their budgets—but the latter two were not well-met critically and didn’t make much of an impact.

After Fox took over the franchise from Disney for the third movie and things didn’t go any better than the second, it felt like that might have been the last of the Chronicles of Narnia we would see. Not so fast. It’s being reported that a fourth movie in the franchise is indeed on the way, based on the book The Silver Chair.

A deal to make the movie was reached between The Mark Gordon Company and C.S. Lewis Company, who will develop and produce it. Lewis’s stepson Douglas Gresham will develop the screenplay along with Mark Gordon and C.S. Lewis Company director Vincent Sieber. It’s unclear whether they plan to use their own script or draft it and then hire someone to fine tune it.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair is set 50 years after the events of Voyage of the Dawn Treader and the Pevensie children are not part of the story, so an entirely new cast is expected for the fourth movie.

The @OfficialNarnia Twitter account posted about the film this morning, adding the following photo…

    Thanks to my kids, I am invested in these, so I’d see a new one.

    I love the movies, but I would have rather seen the Magician’s Nephew. Wo, while I am happy they are making more, I am sad that they are making the wrong one.

  • Mike Hawthorne

    It is the next book in the series.

  • Earthstar1b

    So glad they are continuing the film series. I love the books, and have loved each of the films. I hope they go all the way to “The Last Battle”.
    Please keep up the good work.

    Having read the books I can’t wait for this. those of you who read the books know that the older children are actually not the original children to begin with. Narnia had a completely different king and queen when it started out with and completely different children who helped build Narnia and lamp post. They are also the same children who released the White Queen on to Narnia.if you remember from lion Witch and the Wardrobe the professor was one of the original children who first went to Narnia. These next children actually play an important role of the entire series and play an important part of the other children’s lives. They in fact end up in a book together twice one of them describing how the World’s End. So yeah I am totally psyched for this movie they’re not as good as the books and they miss out on a lot but they are amazing either way

    also I heard it’s not going to be the Silver Chair but the Magician’s Nephew that is going to be made a movie. If this is true we actually get to see how Narnia was created how the white which was released into that plane and the other worlds Narnia surrounds
