Narnia 4 The Silver Chair

There's a change of plan! Now that Walden media is no more on board, the C.S. Lewis Company has teamed up with The Mark Gordon Company to adapt the fourth book in the series The Silver Chair to the big screen.

Plot: "Eustace (played in Dawn Treader by Will Poulter) and classmate Jill Pole are sent to Narnia by Aslan on a mission to help the now-elderly King Caspian (who we met in Prince Caspian in the form of Ben Barnes) find his missing son. It’s set years (in Narnia time, at least) after Dawn Treader. Eustace and Jill find a much-changed, much-darker Narnia, and have to somehow restore the missing Prince."

So it's a direct sequel to Narnia 3 The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

Do you like the Silver Chair choice?

Narnia 4 The Magician's Nephew Movie

Walden Media has revealed that the movie Narnia 4 will actually be based on "The Magician's Nephew" and not on "The Silver Chair". The Magician's Nephew is actually a prequel to the first opus of the Chronicles of Narnia ("The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"). Here's a plot summary of Narnia The Magician's Nephew:

"The Chronicles of Narnia The Magician's Nephew is about the creation of the magical land of Narnia and how evil entered into the newly formed land. The tale also follows Professor Kirke from the 'Wardrobe' as a young boy (Digory) and his introduction to Narnia through a magical ring given to him by his evil Uncle Andrew, a magician."

"I love the Magician's Nephew because it’s a great origins story. You get to learn so much about where the wardrobe came from, where the lamppost came from, where Narnia came from."
Michael Flaherty
co-founder and president of Walden Media

Do you think The Magician's Nephew will be a better story than the Silver Chair for Narnia 4?

Narnia 4 Movie

Narnia 4 Movie - Silver Chair FilmThe movie Narnia 3 has been released last week and now fans are wondering if there's going to be a new installment in the franchise. Well, Narnia 4 hasn't been officially announced yet... But I bet 20th Century Fox and Walden Media are already considering a fourth film, it makes sense for them indeed: in a matter of days the third film will have recouped its budget and there's little doubt that it will be more than profitable.

There are 7 books in the Narnia series written by C.S. Lewis. If we follow the usual order, the next book to be adapted for Narnia 4 should be the Silver Chair (but that's not set in stone...). Here's the plot of the Silver Chair:

The Chronicles of Narnia The Silver ChairPlot:
"The Silver Chair is the first Narnia story without the Pevensie children. Instead, Aslan calls Eustace back to Narnia together with his classmate Jill Pole. There they are given four signs to aid in the search for Prince Rilian, Caspian's son, who disappeared after setting out ten years earlier to avenge his mother's death. Eustace and Jill, with the help of Puddleglum the Marsh-wiggle, face danger and betrayal before finding Rilian."

The Silver Chair is a great story, but I wonder if the studios will be willing to bet on Will Poulter who played the role of Eustace Scrubb in Narnia 3. The kid did well in the third film, but that doesn't mean he's fit for a lead role in Narnia 4.

If the movie Narnia 4 is indeed about the Silver Chair, do you think they should keep Will Poulter as Eustace or find a new actor?

Anyway, more details about the movie Narnia 4 soon!
