Netflix has received the rights to The Chronicles of Narnia and will be producing “new series and film tasks” in accordance with the children ’s fable books. The seven titles launched among 1950 and 1956 have already equipped the foundation for numerous adaptations and Hollywood motion pictures.
The announcement reflects a growing pattern for streaming services to obtain the rights to books that have already been adapted for the big and small monitors. Amazon is currently engaged on its personal adaptation of Lord of the Rings which it hopes to show into a 5 season TELEVISION show, and Netflix is within the center of a 3-season adaptation of A Series of Unlucky Occasions. Both franchises have in the past been adapted into Hollywood motion pictures.
Netflix notes that that is the first time the rights to all seven books were held by way of the same corporate, indicating that this would be the first time that the series is adapted in its entirety. the former try at a cinematic adaptation faltered after the third entry (2010 ’s The Voyage of the First Light Treader) with a rumored adaptation of The Silver Chair failing to materialize.
