Netflix has announced plans for its latest originals series, having acquired the rights to The Chronicles of Narnia series of children’s books. The adaptations of the seven books will include both “new series and film projects.”
Narnia has been adapted to film and TV a number of times in the past, most notably a series of movies distributed by Disney and 20th Century Fox between 2005 and 2010. According to Netflix, however, this is the first time that one company has held the rights to the whole series, meaning that this could be the first time that Narnia is adapted in its entirety.
In other entertainment news, DC Universe’s Titans is set to stream on Netflix outside the US.
