“It has been our dream for many years not simply to make a live-actionversion of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, but to do so while remainingfaithful to the novel.

Finding resonance between its educationalmission and the book’s universal themes of truthfulness, loyalty and courage,Walden has optioned the seven-part fantasy series The Chronicles of Narnia, andintends to develop it into a franchise. The project will be overseen by DouglasGresham, stepson of C.S. Lewis, and Walden Media’s Joel Stillerman, executivevice president of film & television, and Perry Moore, vice president ofproduction and development."
