Netflix and The C.S. Lewis Company have just announced a multi-year deal that gives Netflix the rights to all seven Narnia books. The streaming service is currently in the process of developing multiple new series and film projects about the fantasy novels.

The series hasn’t been adapted for the big screen since 2010, with The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, when the production companies adapting the books at the time lost the right to Lewis’ work.
“C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world,” Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos said in a statement. “Families have fallen in love with characters like Aslan and the entire world of Narnia, and we’re thrilled to be their home for years to come.”
There have been no updates as to when we will start to see the Narnia series hitting the Netflix homepage.
