From Timothee Chalamet to Andrew Garfield, Greta Gerwig’s Narnia Reboot Has Some Exciting Casting Ideas Thrown at It for Netflix

Published 07/04/2023, 5:00 PM EDT

Regrettably, The Chronicles of Narnia, penned by the literary genius C.S. Lewis, could only manifest a trilogy in its grand franchise. The inaugural film, released in 2005 under the title The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, garnered copious accolades and widespread adoration. But, the subsequent installments, unveiled in 2008 and 2010, failed to move to the high standards set by the initial opus, leaving admirers yearning for more. And now Netflix has a chance to make it right and fans have some suggestions.

To put to notice, one finds a contrast between the vibrant world of Narnia and the plastic pink world of Barbie, each transporting audiences to their distinct realities. Astonishingly, it is the talented Greta Gerwig who bridges the divide between these disparate landscapes. The latest anticipation whispers that following her involvement with Barbie, Greta Gerwig may write and direct the Chronicles of Narnia for Netflix.

Netflix is preparing to breathe new life into Narnia with the talented Greta Gerwig at the helm. While it’s still uncertain how much of the novel will be brought to screen, one thing is clear: Gerwig’s adaptation of the novel is sure to capture the essence of the story, just as she has done with her previous films.

Although Gerwig may be busy with her upcoming Barbie project, fans of the beloved franchise are brimming with excitement and suggestions.

Twitterati flood Twitter with diverse casting suggestions

Fans of The Chronicles of Narnia are adamant that Mr. Tumnus, Susan’s beloved disciple, must be included in the cast. They have come up with a rather exciting suggestion: Timothee Chalamet. Brimming with zealous creativity, it seems like a perfect fit, given Chalamet’s ethereal presence and undeniable talent.

In addition to Chalamet, a new contender has emerged from the depths of fan suggestions for the portrayal of the enigmatic goatman. Joey Batey, renowned for his captivating portrayal of Jaskier in The Witcher, is one of them. He has been put forth as a compelling candidate due to his work in the Netflix hit.

In a delightful twist of fate, fans have bestowed upon us the intriguing possibility of Andrew Garfield, known for his portrayal of Spider-Man, as a potential addition to the enchanting realm of Narnia.

Twitterati even voiced bringing back Eustace from the Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Played by Will Poulter, who was last seen in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3

Not just this, the earlier favorite cast of Gerwig, Saoirse Ronan, was suggested by fans for the role of the White Witch. The American-Irish actress has been part of Little Women and Lady Bird by Gerwig. Seems like a perfect choice for Jadis, the White Witch.

As The Witcher fever continues to grip the hearts of fans, their enthusiasm knows no bounds. In a testament to their unwavering adoration, fans have fervently proposed the inclusion of Anya Chalotra, the captivating performer behind the enigmatic Yennefer, into the enchanted world of Narnia.
