Voyage of the Dawn Treader New Image 570x380 Final Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader Trailer

A new (and likely final) trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader has hit the web. Like the international trailer that came before it, this new trailer focuses much more on the plot of the film, though in a decidedly less entertaining way.

As you’ll recall from the previous trailer, Voyage of the Dawn Treader takes place a short time after the events of the second film, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. In the movie, Lucy and Edmund (along with their annoying cousin Eustace) are transported back to Narnia, where they join with Caspian to track the Lost Lords of Narnia.

As I mentioned in a previous post highlighting three images from Dawn Treader, I’m a big C.S. Lewis fan and I am very much looking forward to this film. That being said, I think this trailer is a definite step down from the international trailer and even the first trailer for the movie. I think it gets bogged down a bit by the voiceover, as well as the extended sections of dialogue. The fact that little of the footage is new also makes the trailer seem a bit redundant.

Of course, my opinion isn’t the only one that matters (not yet anyway), so feel free to check out the trailer yourself below:

You can also check out the trailer in HD at Yahoo.

This next paragraph contains SPOILERS, so if you haven’t read Voyage of the Dawn Treader, you might want to skip ahead.

To those who’ve read Voyage of the Dawn Treader: Doesn’t it seem a little weird that this trailer starts off at what is essentially the end of the book? When the crew finally arrives at Aslan’s Country (the Narnian equivalent of the Christian Heaven), it is a poignant moment. Giving it away in the trailer like that, even if most audiences don’t know what they’re looking at, seems a bit…off.


While I didn’t overwhelmingly enjoy this trailer, I’m still looking forward to Voyage of the Dawn Treader. I think it’s important to have quality family films out during the holiday season, and the Chronicles of Narnia series has definitely fit the bill so far.

The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader hits theaters in the U.S. on December 10th, 2010.

  1. It looks OK. Ill give it a shot :)

  2. You’ve seen the others and read the books ya?

    • Ive just seen the movies…

      • LOL@ “Ive just seen the movies”

        • Well your in the same boat as me,youve just seen the HP movies and havent read the books so LOL @ that!

          • I dont go watching sequels without seeing the originals first, like you have. :)

            • i bet youve done it atleast once….i dont usually do it ya know.

    • ive read all the books lol and seen all da movies =)

  3. I think it looks great. Although, is it just me… or did they make some major changes to the book?

  4. They look to have made some changes. Normal when making a transition from book to film. The beginning of the trailer didn’t bother me. Having read the book several times, I knew what was going on but at the same time it doesn’t spoil anything. The ending of the book is significant in regards to Lucy and Edmond and Eustace’s new role from here on out in the series.

    So looking forward to this movie.

  5. That trailer sold me on the was epic!!

  6. it is really weird how the major plot of this movie involves in fighting with the White Queen, which never appeared in the original book. I hope they do film all seven islands’ adventure instead of wasting time on the white queen plot

    • I don’t think it’s a major plot, more of a major theme (which is true in the books) of overcoming the temptation of evil and ruling the way Aslan would.

  7. very awesome movie!
