Confirmed: Walden is Talking With Fox About Making The Magician’s Nephew
I am not okay with this.
I love the idea of making The Magician's Nephew into a movie. AFTER The Silver Chair and The Horse and His Boy. If they do this, it's like skipping The Return of the King and going back to make The Hobbit instead. Where's the respect for the series as a whole? I'm going to take this quite resolutely as a rumor for now (the key word here isn't "confirmed," it's "talking"). The Magician's Nephew is one of my favorite chronicles, and I'm sure it would be a fantastic movie, but it just makes me a little anxious. It's great that Fox has picked up the series, after Disney shamefully dropped it, I just hope they all do the right thing with it. But I have to say I am glad they didn't make it first.
It makes me sad, but if they are going to jump around or skip chronicles, I almost wish they would just leave it how it is. It's a sort of nice trilogy, and the Pevensies' involvement is for the most part over, at least as the characters most involved in the story.
Come on, The Silver Chair! Inspire them! I know you can do it!
