Yep, you read the title right, there will be a fourth 'Chronicles of Narnia' movie based on the sixth book in the series, The Silver Chair. Although it does take place after the events of the last three movies, producer Mark Gordon has said that it is NOT a sequel.
It’s all going to be a brand new franchise. All original. All original characters, different directors, and an entire new team that this is coming from.
Original characters? Looks like Will Pouter won't be reprising his role as Eustace from ' Voyage of the Dawn Treader'.
There was earlier news of this back in June of 2015 when screenplay writer David Magee ('Life of Pi', 'Finding Neverland') tweeted about how he finished a first draft after working on it for over a year.
For those who don't quite follow the series, let me bring you up to speed. 'The Silver Chair' book takes place decades after the events in 'Voyage of the Dawn Treader' when King Caspian (who was played by Ben Barnes in the movies), is an old man and his son and only heir Prince Rilian is missing. Aslan the lion (voiced by Liam Neeson) summons Eustace Scrubb and Jill Pole to find him. Judging by the statement above, however, it seems like the story will have a new twist on it. Possibly introducing characters within the world of Narnia.
Whatever happens, let's hope the movie delivers when it arrives in theaters, whenever that may be.
