APRIL FOOLS! Silver Chair Release date announced? APRIL FOOLS!

We have it on good authority that the release date for the next Narnia movie has been tentatively announced. Fox studios (who is supposed to distribute the film) as reserved a possible slot on April 5, 2016 for a ” Big Budget fantasy film” that is listed under the title of “Greensleeves”. Some insider speculation indicates that this could be the next Narnia movie The Silver Chair.

The Silver Chair

The Silver Chair


It is certainly plausible considering in the song describes a beautiful woman, dressed in green, who ensnares a young man to his doom. There is plenty of precedence for a movie, especially a high profile block-buster, to select a “fake title” or “working title” in order to throw off the press. Often times they will even do this to act as a place holder until more suitable title can be found. Usually the title will have something to do with the plot of the story or an inside joke on set.  Even the earlier Narnia movies were not immune to this trend with “100 Year Winter”, and “Toastie” for LWW and PC.


If true, this would place it smack dab in the middle of the release dates for Batman V. Superman: Dawn of Justice and Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War. This could end up being a repeat of 2008 when we saw Prince Caspian sandwiched between Iron Man and Indiana Jones IV.  Again, nothing is officially confirmed at this point and we will keep you updated as we go along.

    Oh my gosh, you got me so good!!! I thought this was real!!! Now I’m kinda sad. But I guess that is good, because I hope this is not another Prince Caspian.

    If only this were true. 🙂 Part of me really wants it, part of me agrees with Archeress for Alslan. I don’t want another bad adaption. The LWW was great, Prince Caspian was eh but an understandable adaption (except for the whole Susan/Caspian thing. ew.), and Dawn Treader was like watching a movie for a different book. I wish Andrew would come back and direct.

    I was so glad to see a release date announced after so long without any news. Then it dawned on me that it was still a rumor and then the date is way too soon. If it was for December of 2016 would have made more sense due to the time needed to film and edit and all the other stuff in between. Plus the story itself takes place in winter. Then it occurred to me that today is April 1st. Nice try Jonathan.

    Not a funny April Fools joke. Not when it has to do with a release date for Silver Chair. Cruel joke 🙁

    I believed it for the time it took to pull up the page… 🙂 I got so excited, but then I remembered what day it was!
