If you're a fan of The Chronicles of Narnia Series - and let's face it, who isn't – then you're in for a treat. Another film is on its way.

Tri-Star pictures announced Wednesday it would collaborate with The Mark Gordon Company, The C.S. Lewis Company and Entertainment One, to make The Silver Chair. And, David McGee, who wrote the screenplay for Life of Pi and Finding Neverland, is on board to write the script for the next film in the popular saga.

The classic C.S. Lewis story, The Silver Chair is the fourth novel in the seven-book series. Set in the world of Narnia, years after The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, it follows the journey of Eustace (the Pevensie children's cousin) who, with the help of his boarding school classmate Jill, must find Prince Caspian's missing son, Prince Rilian.

It's been six years since the last film in the Narnia series The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, was released. Prior to that, came the box-office hits, The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe(2005), and Prince Caspian (2008).

Douglas Gresham, C.S. Lewis's stepson and one of the co-producers of the film, told Deadline Hollywood of the project: "I greatly look forward to plunging again into the joys and challenges of once more bringing Narnia to the screen, this time with the wonderful story of The Silver Chair."

There's no word yet on when the film will begin production or when it's likely to hit cinemas. We'll also have to wait to find out whether Liam Neeson will return as the voice of Aslan and who else is set to star in the film.

Until then, enjoy this brief walk down Narnia memory lane with some special Narnia moments:
