In a pop culture landscape that is crowded with reboot after reboot, it is easy to become wary of new announcements. This trend is going to have to get old eventually, right? Well, not in the case of Netflix's Chronicles of Narnia.
The timing of this one is actually well thought out. Since Game of Thrones has ended, people will be looking to get their fantasy fix. Instead of settling with a knock-off that is trying too way too hard to be the HBO smash, why not open your mind to the possibilities of a well-done series of shows and films set in Narnia?
Chronicles of Narnia has been a literary classic for over fifty years, capturing the hearts of many children and adults. The story is an amazing puzzle, that resolves itself in a creative way. Those who have read the series know that despite being meant for children, the ending is more bittersweet than one would expect.
The 2005 Disney adaptation of The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe introduced a generation of children to the fantasy genre. Sure they dropped the ball a bit with Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader. But with the correct person at the helm, and should Netflix properly finance the project, this could be a re-do that creates a new craze.
