Latest Clip from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader Pits Dragon vs. Mouse

Only a day remains before The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, the third installment of the Narnia movies, opens in theaters, so a new clip of the movie has been released. Dawn Treader follows the two youngest Pevensie children — Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) — as they return to Narnia to help Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands alongside the warrior mouse Reepicheep (Simon Pegg) and their annoying cousin Eustace (Will Poulter). It's Reepicheep that saves the day in the latest clip, as he takes on a dragon that attacks the ship.
Director Michael Apted (The World Is Not Enough) takes over the directing duties on Voyage of the Dawn Treader from Andrew Adamson, who directed the two previous Narnia movies. In a recent conversation with THR, Apted admitted he "was in the right place at the right time" to be asked to bring the Narnia movies back to the fans' expectations after the disappointing Prince Caspian.
My assignment was to try to recapture the magic of The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. That wasn't easy, but the book was so much lighter and funnier and just quicker than Caspian had been. So to bring some of the magic back was a fairly tall order, but it was embedded in the material.
See if Apted has accomplished his mission in the clip below.
