Fresh off LOTR's Oscar victory, Hollywood's falling in love with flicks based on classic fantasy novels. Next up, Disney plans The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe for Christmas 2005. And just like Rings, there's room for profitable sequels, since C.S. Lewis wrote seven Narnia novels. The book series focuses on four kids who stumble into a frosty, magical world, where they befriend a talking lion and do battle with the evil White Witch.
