The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair

Flying Brian Banana Hammock July 28, 2010 177

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Silver Chair is the fourth book in the series of Christian allegories by C.S. Lewis. This time, young children are charged with finding and rescuing the son of Caspian, who is currently a king of Narnia.

The Silver Chair is the first film in the series to not include the Pevensie children, who have thus far been the main characters in the series. The main characters are Eustace Scrubb and her schoolmate Jill Pole. Scrubb will be introduced to the series this fall in the third film in the series, The Dawn Treader. No doubt Jesus will make an appearance in Lion form.

Trailer

Not yet, it is at least 2 years away people!

The Scoop

Very little is known about the film at present. No director or writer has been announced, and it looks like the studio may be waiting for The Dawn Treader to release before they commit to the next film in the series. However, we hear it is based on Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole who set off on a magical journey in order to rescue King Caspian’s stolen son.

Who’s It For?

PG, maybe PG-13.

Movie Release Date

Possibly 2014, could be 2015 before The Silver Chair hits theaters.

Who’s In It?

Will Poulter is playing Scrubb in Dawn Treader, so he’ll probably return for The Silver Chair, maybe Ben Barnes will return as Caspian, and no doubt Liam Neeson will play Aslan again.

Interesting Fact

After writing the Chronicles of Narnia, C.S Lewis went on to start Scientology. He later published a rewrite of the Narnia series where Aslan is an alien who lives in a volcano. For some reason, it didn’t catch on.

What’s Good About It?

I’ve enjoyed the Narnia series thus far. Dawn Treader looks good, and I expect to enjoy The Silver Chair as well.

What’s Bad About It?

I doubt it’ll be released in 2011. These are special effects heavy films, and if they’re waiting on box office returns for Dawn Treader, there’s no way a quality film will be ready within a year.

Our Clever Prediction

I’m betting it’ll get made. The others have been pretty successful, and this should be as well. I suspect a solid box office, with good reviews.

    C.S. Lewis did not start scientology. That was L. Ron Hubbard. The space series you refer to with Lewis is Perlandia.

    I was just wondering if you have even read all of the books in the Chronicles? When C.S. Lewis wrote the first book… it is a reflection on the Beginning! The world was dark so God created Light. He created the grass, animals,everything and that is how Narnia is in “The Magician’s Nephew” “The Last Battle”, reflects death and returning to Narnia (Heaven) to see all of the loved ones lost over time. Each time someone goes to Narnia, they are there for a short time to learn a lesson and take that knowledge back to the REAL world and use it. I suggest reading the books because there is so much information left out by the movies for time allotment!
