Move over Game of Thrones - Netflix has announced that new Chronicles Of Narnia projects for film and television are on the way.

The streaming service has signed a multi-year deal with The CS Lewis Company to develop the classic stories from across the Narnia universe.

Douglas Gresham, stepson of the series' creator CS Lewis, said in a statement: "It is wonderful to know that folks from all over are looking forward to seeing more of Narnia, and that the advances in production and distribution technology have made it possible for us to make Narnian adventures come to life all over the world.

"Netflix seems to be the very best medium with which to achieve this aim, and I am looking forward to working with them towards this goal."

In total the Narnia books have sold more than 100 million copies and have been translated into more than 47 languages worldwide. This deal marks the first time that rights to the entire seven books of the Narnia universe have been held by the same company.

"CS Lewis' beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world," said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer, Netflix.

"Families have fallen in love with characters like Aslan and the entire world of Narnia, and we’re thrilled to be their home for years to come."
