Book-to-Film: The Silver Chair by C.S. Lewis

It's been a while since a Narnia film has been released, and there was even some speculation that the producers would just skip straight to The Magician's Nephew (the last book in the series) and leave the rest undone.  But fans can now rest easy, official word is that the franchise is continuing with the next book in line: The Silver Chair.  

From Big Books Tiny Voices:

Speculation about the Narnia franchise has been all over the place for some time now- some people thought it was finished (the film rights have bounced from studio to studio) and those who had not lost faith were certain that the next film was going to be The Magician’s Nephew (because they had basically said as much). Have no fear- official word is in and they are moving ahead with the fourth film in the franchise, which will be The Silver Chair! Screenplay writer David Magee, who has an Academy Award nomination for his work on Life of Pie, will pen the script.

Hopefully this one is more like the first two and less like the third one.  But who am I kidding, I'll see it regardless.  


  1. Oh cool. I didn't realize they were doing another movie. I enjoyed The Silver Chair a lot. I hope the movie does a good job. So far I've liked all the movies, except Prince Caspian, because they stayed so true to the stories.

    1. Yeah, it's been so long since a Narnia film has been released that I feared they were stopping! I'm happy they're continuing, and am hopeful for this film. I actually liked Prince Caspian, but didn't really care for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But, in all fairness, I didn't really care for TVOTDT as a book either, so.
