‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair’ To Be A Semi-Reboot On The Franchise

Jan 13, 2016

News on the status of the next Chronicles of Narnia film has been minimal at best. The last time we saw Pevensie kids and Aslan battle a threat to the land of Narnia was 6 years ago in 2010’s Voyage on the Dawn Treader. Then, film rights issues sprung up in 2013 which had the original studio Walden Media losing the rights to The Mark Gordon Company.

Now speaking with Collider producer Mark Gordon goes onto reveal that while they are making The Silver Chair it will serve as a reboot of the franchise with new directors, actors etc:

“No, it’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”

While it might be exciting to see Narnia back up on the big screen it might come as a disappointment that all the characters will be recast. Which means actor Liam Nesson will have to be recast as the mighty lion Aslan. As well as the Pevensie children, Caspian and their cousin Eustace. This also serves sort of a “semi-reboot” considering the events of the original Narnia films still occurred:

The Silver Chair occurs decades after Voyage on the Dawn Treader which follows King Caspian (Originally played by Ben Barns) when his only son and heir Prince Rillian goes missing. So Aslan (Originally voiced by Liam Nesson) enlists Eustace Scrubb (Originally played by Will Poulter) and Jill Pole to track down the missing prince.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair has yet to receive a release date
