It’s been about 15 years since The Chronicles of Narnia first came to our screens and more than 70 since the first installment of the beloved book series by C. S. Lewis was published.
Only three of the seven books have been adapted, but many fans have fond memories of the films. The fairytale-like tone and the hopeful narrative might be just what we need during this time. The fact that the rights were recently purchased by Netflix, and a new series will be under production soon shows just that. In the meantime, here’s how you can watch or stream The Chronicles of Narnia films.
The Chronicles of Narnia is currently not on Netflix… the story will be there soon, but not in the way we might think. Netflix will produce its own version soon. Comparing and contrasting will be fun.
All three The Chronicles of Narnia films are available to watch on Disney+. After all, the first two films were distributed by Walt Disney Pictures, and Fox, which replaced it for The Voyage of Dawn Trader was later acquired by Disney, making them all available to Disney+ subscribers.
Hulu has teamed up with Disney+: through Hulu, it is now possible to sign-up for the Disney Streaming Bundle which grants you access to Disney+, ESPN+, and ad-supported Hulu, so while The Chronicles of Narnia, will still be viewed through Disney+, they can come with your Hulu subscription.
Yes, all three films of The Chronicles of Narnia franchise are currently available to watch on Amazon Prime. Each can be rent from £2.49 or bought from £9.99.
The Chronicles of Narnia films were available on HBO through HBO Now and HBO Go, but they were removed in 2019.
Other options to watch The Chronicles of Narnia films include YouTube and Google Movies and TV, where the films can be rented from £2.49 each.
For those who are just starting with The Chronicles of Narnia, each of the films corresponds to a C.S. Lewis book of the same name.
Here is the correct order:
1)The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
2)The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
3)The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of Dawn Trader
Of course, there are four more books in the world of Narnia that have never been adapted. It will be exciting to see what Netflix will do with the source material! In the meantime, a Narnia re-watch can be very comforting.
