“Narnia” trailer gives us first glimpse at “Dawn Treader”
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: My “Dawn Treader” voyage was temporarily delayed. This morning, the enchanted boat is starting to pull away from the docks.
A few weeks back, 20th Century Fox offered to screen 30 minutes from Michael Apted’s “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” ahead of Tony Scott’s “Unstoppable.” The studio seemed excited by what Apted has done with the newly acquired “Narnia” franchise and was eager to show off the goods. However, a mail snafu delayed the footage, so “Dawn Treader” was postponed.
But if you want to get your first look at the sequel – the third in the “Narnia” series – an official trailer has made its way online. Check it out here.
Continuing to expand on the world created in C.S. Lewis’ novels. “Dawn Treader” follows Lucy and Edmund Pevensie as they stumble on a magical painting that transports them back to Narnia. They reunite with King Caspian aboard a ship called the Dawn Treader, and set out to stop the wicked plans of the White Witch.
Several familiar faces are back on screen, including Ben Barnes, Georgie Henley, William Moseley, and Anna Popplewell. Simon Pegg voices the rodent warrior Reepicheep, and Tilda Swinton’s back as the witch. In addition to the talking lions and mice, though, Apted has introduced dragons and sea creatures. And he’s presenting it all in digital 3D.
Are you excited by the clip? Let us know. “Dawn Treader” will be in theaters on Dec. 10.
