3 New Clips from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
08.22.10 by REELZ
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the first Narnia movie to be shown in both 3-D and 2-D, opens in theaters on December 10. It's also the first Narnia move to be directed by Michael Apted (The World Is Not Enough).
In the first of three new clips, we see Lucy (Georgie Henley), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and newcomer Eustace (Will Poulter) arguing in front of a picture of a ship, which soon floods the room in true fantasy style. In the second clip, you can see young Eustace tumbling into a treasure trove, while Edmund and a bearded Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) try to find him. Meanwhile, Lucy is on the Dawn Treader ship, and sees an unusual volcano-like fire in the distance. The third and final clip shows Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and warrior mouse Reepicheep (voiced by Simon Pegg) rowing through a sea of lilies, on their way to Aslan's country.
Judging from the footage we've seen so far, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader looks like it'll be up to the high standard of 2005's The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and 2008's Prince Caspian, even though Andrew Adamson chose not to take up directorial duties this time around. No doubt author C. S. Lewis would approve of his novels coming to life in such faithful adaptations, though this is likely to be the last Narnia adventure to hit the big screen.
Take a look at the new clips below. Does Prince Caspian look too old? Is Eustace as annoying as he was in the book? Let us know what you think in the comments.
