Mark Johnson asks: The Silver Chair or The Magician’s Nephew, which next?

Which book in the Chronicles of Narnia would you like them to produce next? Producer Mark Johnson has said that they would love to do The Silver Chair next because Will Poulter is absolutely perfect as Eustace. He also would love to do The Magician’s Nephew next, which would leave Will Pouter growing a few years older, but they’d be doing a story that he loves, much sooner. He thought he might put that question to the fans. Although this is as unofficial as it gets, let’s all vote for what we’d rather see next!

Here’s how this came about, from an interview with Examiner reporter Carla Hay:

I know you get asked this question a lot, but I’ll ask anyway: Will there be a fourth “Narnia” movie?

Johnson: Keep in mind that the two youngest Penvensie kids, Lucy and Edmund, don’t come back, so the next movie will have Eustace. We could do “The Silver Chair” or we could do “The Magician’s Nephew.”

Which book do you think fans want to see more as the fourth “Narnia” movie: “The Silver Chair” or “The Magician’s Nephew”?

Johnson: That’s a really good question. I couldn’t tell you. We should put it to the fans [to decide]. I know we have to do “The Magician’s Nephew.” I love that book! The question is: “Do we do it now and let our Eustace grow older? Or do we do ‘The Silver Chair’ and then do ‘The Magician’s Nephew’?”

So, what’ll it be, fans?

After Dawn Treader, which of these should they film next?

  1. Silver Chair first. Eustace was hardly a year older in the book if that much so if he’s too old that would suck. The after that the Magicians nephew as long as they make the connection that the professor and Digory are the same person. Then Horse and his Boy Then obviously the Last Battle.

    • yeah..he is older than the charater in the book; which is around twelve….isn’t he old enough???? I think he is now…there isn’t any need to wait until he is much older…, but may God’s will be done.

    • i don’t mean to be mean, but sometimes i think girls just want to act as jill pole so that they can hang out with Will i the only one who thinks that?

      I don’t mean any offense, of course…maybe you should just think on that a bit,i have,…………….Alot!!!!
