Netflix has announced that they will be rolling out a new series based on the classic The Chronicles of Narnia novels by C.S. Lewis. 

Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix, said in a statement earlier today, "C.S. Lewis’ beloved Chronicles of Narnia stories have resonated with generations of readers around the world. 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.”

This deal is the first time that rights to all of the seven books of Narnia have been held by the same company, but, it's not the first time they will be adapted to Television. 

The C.S. Lewis Company announced that their deal with Netflix will last a few years. If somehow you didn't read these books, now is the time.
