Yes, dear readers. The C.S. Lewis classic children’s stories are getting a makeover by Barbie. Here’s the news stories:

Known for her highly anticipated movie BARBIE, sources confirmed Greta Gerwig is set to direct a new Netflix adaption of NARNIA.
The Hollywood Reporter stated, “There is no official announcement but the New York reported that Gerwig has a deal to direct two films in author C.S Lewis’ NARNIA franchise.”
Additionally IDN reported, “According to a recent profile piece in The New Yorker, Gerwig will helm at least two Narnia movies for Netflix as part of the streamer’s long-gestating plans to bring the beloved Chronicles of Narnia series to life through multiple movies and TV shows.”GRETA GERWIG TRADES ONE FANCY WARDROBE FOR ANOTHER WITH NARNIA ANNOUNCEMENT

Netflix film chief Scott Stuber recently revealed why he made a deal with Greta Gerwig to adapt C.S. Lewis’ “Chronicles of Narnia” books for the streaming service.
Variety executive editor Brent Lang asked Stuber, “I want to ask you about some upcoming films. You have Greta Gerwig adapting C.S. Lewis’ Narnia books. Why did you decide to make that deal? What about her as a filmmaker made you feel like that was a good fit with that material?”NETFLIX CHIEF DETAILS UPCOMING CHRONICLES OF NARNIA ADAPTATIONS
While production hasn’t started yet, Netflix is hoping to begin filming sometime next year.
Stuber told Collider, “Well, I think people know that we’re aspirationally trying to get Greta Gerwig’s NARNIA together and get that movie, which will be next year.”
Ok, color me skeptical. First her name is Greta. Sorry but every Greta that I know of is literally a flaming Liberal.
Second, she directed Barbie. Yes, I know the movie made lots of money but yuck. Aside from all the woke stuff in it, it looks like she gave the franchise the “Speed Racer” treatment. Live people with computer animated backgrounds.
Sorry folks but I see no way that the Narnia series survives this lady and her companions. And maybe that’s the point.
The Walden Media movies lost much of the spirit of Narnia and got progressively worse as they went on. Walden lost much of the Christian message in the books simply because they didn’t stick with the story; instead opting to make Naria a Marvel lite action series. Wanna bet the Walt Disney Company forced many of these changes to the scripts because they had distribution rights to the movies? (If memory served me, Disney killed the distribution of future films, thus killing any further Narnia projects by Walden Media.)
Sorry but Narnia is about characters making choices and then bearing the consequences of their actions. It is more cerebral than action oriented. The action has a purpose and is not just a series of scenes of gratuitous violence strung together for the purposes of entertainment.
I really doubt that Netflix will allow the Narnia series to be made without making characters homosexual or trans just so they can check the politically correct boxes mandated by Hollywood. Then there’s the white witch. Do they keep her white, and make all the children members of various minority groups?
Can an overtly Christian book series really translate once they get done with it? Color me super pessimistic. I think this is a backhanded way of destroying Narnia. They want it to fail and in such a way that the message is that Lewis books just aren’t marketable.
Remember that Liberals kill what they can’t control.
