‘The Magician’s Nephew’ Could Be The Next Narnia Film

The Magicians NephewThe folks behind the trio of films based on The Chronicles of Narnia books are going back to square one as they figure out a path for a possible fourth installment. In fact, they are literally going back to square one. Rather than continue on with The Silver Chair, as many people thought they would, Walden and Fox are in talks to use the first part of the story — and the best book if you ask me — The Magician’s Nephew as the next Narnia flick. While it was the sixth Narnia book C.S. Lewis published, chronologically in the world of Narnia, it precedes The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. It sets up the creation of Narnia, introduces the White Witch, and includes transportation to different worlds with the help of magical rings (um, hello that’s awesome). I really can’t see why they waited this long to adapt this particular book from the series.

As for the film series, it looks like we’ll have to wait a few years before we see the next one and it’s looking likely that it will get a Christmastime release. While The Voyage of the Dawn Treader didn’t do as well as the other films, it did gross over $400 million worldwide, so I think it would be a pretty safe bet that they’ll soon get cracking on the next one.

Celebrity Editor Kelsea Stahler was born in a pile of dirt. Okay, she was actually born in an old Naval hospital in San Diego, which then became a pile of dirt and remained as such for a number of years before becoming a parking lot perfectly sized for circus tents, and finally a museum. She eventually left San Diego to attend New York University, where she studied Journalism and English literature — two less-than profitable liberal arts degrees about which guidance counselors warned her. Against all odds, she now resides in Brooklyn, where she fights the constant fear that the locals will soon discover she isn’t quite cool enough to live there, and makes a living writing absurd, pop culture features about Batman, zombies, vampires, funny people, and Ron Swanson.
