First Look: The Chronicles of Narnia Ship the Dawn Treader
Hopefully you didn't forget, but The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is actually in-production at 20th Century Fox. Disney dumped the Chronicles of Narnia franchise last year after Prince Caspian performed poorly, mainly due to marketing problems since that movie and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe were disconnected in setting and tone, among other things. Fox stepped up and now they're shelling out millions to get it made. From the looks of it, though, they might have a "replacement" movie for Pirates of the Caribbean, as Disney is behind on getting the fourth movie ready.
An endless amount of photos of the Dawn Treader have been leaking out, but ComingSoon landed the first batch of photos of the entire thing completed and ready to go, which I thought was finally worth featuring.
C.S. Lewis' The Voyage of the Dawn Treader follows the two youngest Pevensies siblings, Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes), as they travel with Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) on a quest around the world in the Dawn Treader (seen above). Three years have passed since the events of Prince Caspian, peace has been established in Narnia, and Caspian has undertaken his oath to Aslan to find the seven lost Lords of Narnia. Lucy and Edmund are delighted to be back in Narnia. The talking mouse Reepicheep (seen in Prince Caspian) is also on board, as he hopes to find Aslan's country beyond the seas of the "utter East".
The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is being directed by British filmmaker Michael Apted (Thunderheart, The World Is Not Enough, Amazing Grace) and is currently scheduled for release on December 10th, 2010.
