Narnia.com Down for Maintenance

Not so much a rumour, but rather just some idle speculation on my part.... But when I go to Narnia.com right now I get redirected to a "Under Maintenance" placeholder page.

Other than me being bored and starved for news, a couple of things struck me as interesting about that situation:

1. The Narnia.com website has updated and changed numerous times over the last few years, but it has never required them to take the website down while they do updates. They just replace the old page with the new page whenever it's ready.

2. The "Under Maintenance" page I get redirected to is a UK specific domain. This hasn't happened since the Disney/Walden days when Narnia.com used to redirect you to Narnia.co.uk for some region-specific movie content. Again, I can't think why they would feel the need to reintroduce regionalisation on the web page now.

Perhaps it's all just nothing, perhaps it's a Harper Collins thing, perhaps (fingers crossed) it's a Netflix thing... Just can't figure out what or why...

Thanks for the information. We'll await developments!

I'm able to view the website from Canada. Could it be a region-based block?

@impending-doom that's interesting. I wonder if it's just the UK then?

For reference, I've attached a screenshot...

 

It's been this way for at least 4 or more days now

So the site has been down for a month now... Any initial excitement I had about it being for an imminent refresh of exciting new content has subsided into one of confusion as to why they would take the site down for so long if the new site wasn't ready yet.

I assume everyone in the UK is redirected  to the same Maintenance message and it's not just me ...?
