    So pretty much we'll be getting the films this way:

    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    Prince Caspian
    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
    The Magician's Nephew
    The Silver Chair
    The Last Battle


    kinda surprised we're not getting the films this way:

    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    Prince Caspian
    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
    The Silver Chair
    The Last Battle
    The Magician's Nephew

    That's kind of odd... your list is missing The Horse and his Boy by the way...

    I figured they were just going with the original published order,

    The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe
    Prince Caspian
    The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
    The Silver Chair
    The Horse and his Boy
    The Magician's Nephew
    The Last Battle

    Honestly I am a bit surprised to see that they are doing the Magician's nephew as its connection to the rest of the stories is a bit thin and it technically the first story in the chronicles, I personally figured after they started with the Lion The witch and the wardrobe , that it would not be made into a movie.

    As long as I get to see more of Tilda Swinton in that sexy dress, I'm okay.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure they are doing this one next because it is probably the one they consider the most viable - the Narnia movie series has been struggling since Prince Caspian, they have probably decided that it is easier to go with this one because it is a well recieved book and it would act as potentially nice 'closer' to the series if they are unable to pony up the interest/cash for any more.

    No complaints here. The Magician's Nephew is my favorite book in the series after Dawn Treader. I just hope we get The Silver Chair eventually, as that was another one of the best. Really, the first two books were probably the worst; the entire series gets better and better as it goes along (until the Last Battle, at least, which is pretty lousy).

    I'm still waiting on an announcement from Fox.
    Afterall the quotes say something to the affect, "We have begun talking to Fox..."

    I want to know the result of those talks is a yes.
    Walden can present TMN to Fox but Fox my balk and want TSC for example.
