The director of the box-office hit "Barbie" said during a recent interview with Time her goal in creating new film adaptations of C.S. Lewis' "Narnia" for Netflix is to give viewers a "magical ... re-enchantment of the world."

Netflix CEO Ted Sarandos described Gerwig, who is coming off a billion-dollar success in "Barbie," as an "incredible visionary," and went on to vow the coming "Narnia" films will be true to the source material.
