Netflix: The Chronicles of Narnia will be adapted by the director of Barbie


From 2024, Netflix will launch production of The Chronicles of Narnia adapted by Greta Gerwig, director of the film Barbie which was a huge success this summer.

On October 3, 2018, Netflix announced that it had "acquired the rights to CS Lewis' beloved series, The Chronicles of Narnia", and thus plans to develop "new series and film projects based on the books". An event eagerly awaited by fans.

According to recent information fromScreenrush, the project is expected to enter production in 2024 and will be directed by Greta Gerwig, the director of the Barbie film.

Director Greta Gerwig intends to 'mix several CS Lewis books,' says the same source. Thus, “the first film will not only focus on The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe”.

The story told by CS Lewis, famous English theologian and author, through the Chronicles of Narnia, recalls the story of Redemption by Christ. In a letter by CS Lewis, to his friend Arthur Greeves, in October 1931, he explained that the story of Aslan, the lion, represented "the actual incarnation, crucifixion and resurrection", as experienced by Jesus.
