If you’ve ever stumbled upon the Narnia book series as a child, you came to love the characters, the storyline and the wild adventures it would take you on as you read page-to-page of every line C.S Lewis has ever written. Between the years of 2005 and 2010, the theatrical adaptations of the Narnia franchise have slowly become entertaining for fans. Mixed feelings will surely ensue as there are plans for the fourth book of the fantasy series, The Silver Chair to be made into a film.
However, it’s been said by producer Mark Gordon that The Silver Chair is “going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.”
This may be shocking news for fans of the original cast as given the new direction of the franchise, The Silver Chair will be lead by an all-new cast as well. The first three films focused on the Pevensie family yet this will be not the case for the upcoming movie title as the protagonist will be their cousin Eustice Scrubb. The plot will follow Eustice luring a new companion into an adventure in which Prince Caspian’s heir, Prince Rilian must be found.
Even if Eustice will be leading the film, the previously cast actor for his character, which was originally portrayed by Will Poulter, will obviously not be returning to reprise the role, considering the aging he’s done for six years and with Mark Gordon’s intention of starting fresh.
There hasn’t been word out for The Silver Chair’s release date or a production schedule locked in, but it won’t be a surprise if some info on the film gets announced soon.
