Film Synopsis:

“During the negotiations between Fox, Walden, and the C.S. Lewis Estate, the film option that Walden Media owned was allowed to expire and Walden Media no longer has exclusive purchasing rights to any further Narnia films. (What’s the difference between a film option and the film rights? Check out Wikipedia’s article here.) This has been confirmed to us by representatives of the C.S. Lewis Estate.

And while Walden and Fox have confirmed they are both interested in making more Narnia films, our understanding is that, by law, the C.S. Lewis Estate must wait a certain period of time (called a moratorium) before they can sell the film option for the Narnia books again. And when they do, it will be available to any film company out there interested in bidding on it, not just Walden and Fox.

So what does this mean? It means that the ball is entirely in the C.S. Lewis Estate’s court at this point, and they have to wait this mandatory period of time until they can sell the film option again. We here at NarniaWeb don’t know exactly how long this moratorium is, though it is likely several years. What we do know, however, is that Doug Gresham has mentioned many times that it’s his dream to make all seven Narnia books into movies so he probably won’t rest until he’s done that. This is not the end of the Narnia movies! We’re only going to have to wait a while before we see another one.” September 27, 2011 Narniaweb

    What on holly earth is the meaning of moratorium? And why is it so many years? I read that it will not be put to production until 2018… I am so sad!!

    A moratorium is a delay or suspension of an activity or a law. – I hope it’s not 2018. That would be a LONG time to wait.

    I hope that they release it by 2015. As a super oober fan would definitely loose my interest if they prolonged it. Someone should go on strike or create a fan base group and do something! “Let ASLAN live.”
