Barbie Director & Netflix To Release Two New Narnia Films

Barbie Director & Netflix To Release Two New Narnia Films
Jul 4 2023 Share

Streaming giant Netflix is reportedly working on rebooting The Chronicles of Narnia, placing Barbie director Greta Gerwig at the helm. 

Two films are being reportedly planned by the streaming network ahead of Gerwig’s highly anticipated Barbie flick’s release later this month. 

The Chronicles of Narnia saw three film adaptations in 2005, 2008 and 2010 respectively, and are based on the books by C.S Lewis. 

It is unknown which of the seven books by Lewis that Gerwig wants to reimagine and whether or not we’ll see the familiar faces of the Pevensie children in the new franchise. 

39-year-old Gerwig’s track record as director is pretty impressive, having been nominated for five Oscars after her break-out success of Lady Bird. 

It’ll be interesting to see how she transitions from the pink and lavish world of the Barbies and Kens to the fantastical woodlands of Narnia. 

Did you watch the original Narnia films? And would you watch two new films developed by Netflix?
