Narnia Villains Movies?

Whatever spin-off movies tell us about these or other characters, I hope it will have to be approved by the Estate (or a designated authority).

It would set the canon for the future, and we don't want it to resemble some of the worst fan-fiction!

There, shining in the sunrise, larger than they had seen him before, shaking his mane (for it had apparently grown again) stood Aslan himself.

@coracle True. It seems that spin-offs are the thing nowadays, like with Star Wars, Disney, Marvel, and even DC. Wonder if Lord of the Rings will do the same, with Amazon having the series in the works.

So hopefully Netflix would keep it canon. There is plenty of opportunity to extend on the stories, though. It leaves a wide open space for creativity.

@courtenay I was just about to talk about Morgoth! Your discussion regarding the Calormen and Tash was very interesting. 

@jasmine_tarkheena I didn't know this channel "Into the Wardrobe" (it seems interesting, I'll watch it), but I liked this theory about Jadis and Tash. It makes sense.

  I know that Lewis didn't want his work to be an allegory to our world or to Bible events, but I think it's fair to say that Jadis in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe looks like a version of Satan: the way the Narnia dwellers are afraid of her, the fact that she seduced Edmund only to enslave him and accuse him for "his sin", she wanting the humans dead... so I read The Last Battle, and then Tash was the one which really looked like a portrayal of Satan, and this got me confused.

  So, the idea of Jadis allowing herself to be possessed by Tash conciliates the two things and is reasonable, in my opinion.

@coracle I agree! It being made carefully is really important.

@calormenwarrior It would also explain that both Jadis and Tash claimed the rights to their lawful prey (Edmund and Rishda, though I don't really know if Peter was actually just referring to Rishda or could he have been referring to anyone as Tash's lawful prey).

Hopefully Netflix can make it clear that the White Witch and the Lady of the Green Kirtle are not the same person, like CS Lewis did. It's like, "Why aren't Prince Rabadash and Rishda Tarkaan the same person? Should I list the reasons?" If you remember the prophecy in The Lion, The Witch, And The Wardrobe, it says that when the Pevensies reign at Cair Paravel, it will be the end not just of the White Witch's reign, but of her life. And Aslan killed her at the battle, and He meant it! I think it would be the easiest thing to do, because they're both witches and had the same motivation. But it doesn't make them the same person. Old Narnians even say in The Silver Chair, "We see it now. Those Northern witches have always meant for the same thing, but in every age, they have their own way of getting it." I feel dumb talking about it, but both Rabadash and Rishda are Calormenes and in the upper class society... and they both wanted to take Narnia for their own. But they're not the same person.

Each of the villains should be his or her own villain. You can two evil witches in Narnia history but it doesn't have to be the same one! You can even have two arrogant upper class Calormene princes or Tarkaans or whatever in Calormene history, but it doesn't have to be the same one!

@jasmine_tarkheena You're right, I forgot to consider some of these details you brought. I really prefer them to be different characters, anyways.

As they should be. I think Netflix could fall into the trap of bringing back the old villain, like Walden did. It's almost like the Dark Knight trilogy kept bringing back the Scarecrow (I don't know if it was because fans liked Cilian Murphy as the Scarecrow so much or filmmakers just randomly decided to bring him back).

It isn't like Voyage of the Dawn Treader would bring back Miraz. And why should they? He's an old character and has been dealt with. Plus Voyage of the Dawn Treader really doesn't have a villain (unless you count Governor Gumpas and Pug as villains, though I think they were just minor bad guys.)

Obviously, we will see another White Witch and another Miraz and even another Lady of the Green Kirtle from Netflix. The whole world is being re-imagined, so it's totally fine. And we'll get to see the villains we haven't seen on screen yet, like Prince Rabadash and Shift and Rishda and Ginger.
