The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Directed by Michael Apted
Starring Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, and Georgie Henley
Fox 2000 Pictures and Walden Media
Release Date: December 10, 2010
With the holidays quickly approaching, what better way to spend a night with the family than by going out and catching a movie. This weekend marks for right now, the final release in the Narnia series with The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Out of these three movies, the second one is the only one without a December release date. I have never read the books, but I have always been fascinated with the concept of these tales of faraway lands filled with both mythical and mystical creatures, and the variety of everything else as well. It makes me wonder the differences between the books and the movies. (Maybe one day I will get around to reading them, there is seven total).
This movie begins with us seeing Britain enlisting men for World War II, and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) wanting to enlist. His younger sister Lucy (Georgie Henley) finds him and gets him out of there so they can head home.
A second theatrical trailer has been released for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
Watch the trailer here below.
The first trailer debuted online back in June, but there’s been little buzz about the third film in the Narnia film franchise.
In the upcoming film, we see the return of Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), along with two of the four Pevensie children — Lucy and Edmund — who are accompanied on this nautical journey with their young cousin Eustace Scrubb.
Directed by Michael Apted, this new film is the first of the bunch to be financed by Fox, instead of Disney, which backed the first two movies, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and Prince Caspian, for Walden Media. There’s a lot of pressure for Dawn Treader to do well, otherwise it’s unlikely that further Narnia adaptations will be made (there are seven Narnia books in author C.S. Lewis’s novel series).
The first trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader has been released online by 20th Century Fox on the film’s official website.
Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the third chapter in the franchise, and the first since Fox took over. In December of 2008, we found out that The Walt Disney Company had decided not to continue backing the films after the sequel, Prince Caspian, had a major drop at the box office. A month later it was revealed that Fox would be picking it up and continuing on in hopes that this new movie might regain the popularity of the first.
