Edmund Pevensie, the youngest of the four siblings who were transported to the magical world of Narnia in C.S. Lewis’s Chronicles of Narnia, has come forward to say that the entire story was made up.

“It was all just a story,” said Edmund, now in his early 70s. “I made it all up, every last bit of it.”

The Chronicles of Narnia have been beloved by generations of readers, both young and old, but Edmund’s admission will likely come as a shock to many.

The story of the Pevensie siblings’ adventures in Narnia has been retold countless times, in various forms, but it all started with Edmund’s original telling.

“I was just a kid when I made it up, and I never expected it to take on a life of its own like it did,” said Edmund.

It was Edmund who first told the story of how he, his brother and sisters, Lucy, Susan, and Peter, were transported to the magical world of Narnia through a wardrobe.

They met talking animals, fought an evil witch, and helped the rightful king, Aslan, reclaim his throne.

But according to Edmund, none of it ever happened.

“It was all just a story, a made- up story,” said Edmund. “But I’m glad it brought joy to so many people.”

Edmund’s admission is sure to cause controversy, but it will also likely reignite interest in the Chronicles of Narnia, which have been adapted for film and television multiple times.

The most recent adaptation, a film trilogy released between 2005 and 2010, grossed over $1.6 billion at the worldwide box office.

It’s safe to say that the story of the Pevensie siblings will continue to be told and retold for many years to come, even if it is now officially a work of fiction.


  1. Well, this is a bombshell. I always suspected that the Chronicles of Narnia were too good to be true, but I never would have guessed that Edmund Pevensie would come out and say that the whole story was made up. I’m curious to see how this admission will affect the public’s perception of the Chronicles of Narnia. Will people still love the story as much as they did before, or will Edmund’s admission tarnish the legacy of the Chronicles of Narnia?

  2. I’m surprised by Edmund’s admission, but it doesn’t change how much I enjoy the Chronicles of Narnia. The story is still just as magical, regardless of whether it’s true or not.

  3. Edmund Pevensie’s admission that the Chronicles of Narnia are entirely fictional is sure to cause controversy among fans of the beloved series. However, it is important to remember that the stories were always meant to be imaginary adventures, and they have brought joy to readers for generations.

  4. So many people are going to be upset by this! Edmund Pevensie was always my favorite character and I loved the Chronicles of Narnia growing up. I’m still in shock that he would make up such an iconic story.

  5. As a huge fan of the Chronicles of Narnia, I’m very disappointed to hear that Edmund Pevensie has come forward to say that the entire story was made up. I always believed that there was a grain of truth to the story, and it’s saddening to think that it was all just a figment of Edmund’s imagination.

  6. I’m saddened by this news, but it in no way diminishes my love for the Chronicles of Narnia. I will continue to cherish the memories of reading the books and watching the films with my family. Thank you, Edmund Pevensie, for giving us all such a cherished story.

  7. This is quite a bombshell! I’m sure there will be a lot of debate about this, but it’s definitely an interesting perspective. Edmund Pevensie was always my favorite character in the Chronicles of Narnia, so I’m glad to see he’s doing well in his later years.

  8. I find this extremely hard to believe! Edmund Pevensie was always my favorite character and I loved the Chronicles of Narnia growing up. If he really did make the whole thing up, then he has a lot of imagination! Either way, I’m still going to enjoy the stories.

  9. This is disappointing news for fans of the Chronicles of Narnia, but it’s also not entirely surprising. Edmund was always the most unreliable narrator and it was always clear that he was making up parts of the story (or at least exaggerating them). It’s a shame that the truth has come out now, but it doesn’t take away from the enjoyment that millions of readers have gotten from these books over the years.
