Catching Fire tickets, check. Thor: The Dark World set visit, check. New The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug trailer, check. Star Wars casting buzz, check. So what other blockbuster franchises want to make some news today? How about The Chronicles of Naria?
That's right. Fox is moving forward with a fourth Chronicles of Narnia movie. The franchise has banked a staggering $1.6 billion worldwide thus far.
The fourth film will be an adaptation of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair.
"Like many readers, both young and old, I am a huge fan of C.S. Lewis’ beautiful and allegorical world of Narnia," producer Mark Gordon said. "These fantasy stories inspire real-world passion among millions of devoted fans around the world. As we prepare to bring the next book to life, we are humbled and excited to contribute to the outstanding legacy of Narnia."
No release date is set yet, but we might see this latest Narnia adventure in theaters in late 2015. There are seven Chronicles novels in C.S. Lewis' series.
The Silver Chair takes place in Narnia decades after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (but less than a year later in England) with King Caspian X now an old man. His son and only heir, Prince Rilian, is missing. Aslan (aka Liam Neeson) sends two children from England to Narnia on a mission to solve the mystery – Eustance Scrubb (Will Poulter) from Dawn Treader and Jill Pole.
Are you excited for another Narnia movie in theaters (and thus another chance to hear that awesome Aslan the Lion roar)?

It has been too long. I am ready to go back to Narnia. It has been awhile since we have been to Narnia. I will be looking forward to 2015 for it's return.
This comes to a bit of a shock for me fearing the Voyage of the Dawn Treader was the end of the road for Walden Media. However, if anything promising happens i will be there
That's great news so happy the Epic stories of C.S. LEWIS Chronicles of Narnia are going to be in the Spotlight-the Big-screen Winter 2015!! I'm thrilled, I love the three past NARNIA films there treasure Masterpieces (especially The Lion, Witch and the Wardrobe..'my favorite): the Acting talents (young & older) that brought those characters Lucy (my fave, a total treasure: she is), Edmund, Susan, Peter and Mr. Tumnus & ASLAN (our charismatic/Brave Lion) etc.,. and that Evil Witch to vivid life on the Big screen all done an "excellent" job. I definitely look forward to more Saga Adventures to C.S. Lewis Classic Bk's: hope to see Georgie Henley and Skander Keynes (the Pevensie siblings) in this new ...NARNIA 'venture The SILVER Chair.
I am excited for this news. I love reading these books to my kids and reliving the experiences I had as a kid. Glad they are moving forward on another edition of this series. Still hoping they continue making the Percy Jackson movies as well.
