[UPDATE: Bottom of the post for a look at the completed Dawn Treader!]

The guys over at Cine Fools managed to snag some exclusive shots of the new Dawn Treader ship which will be the focal point in the next installment of The Chronicles of Narnia.

The photos were taken by the father of one of the bloggers at the Cleveland Point, Queensland, Australia site where the Dawn Treader is being constructed. The ship is still in its early phases, but we thought you Narnia fans would like to have a looksee anyway.

You can head on over to Cine Fools for more shots of the Dawn Treader, including the “dragon’s head” masthead and the “dragon’s wing” flaps which will eventually be attached. For a gallery of the finished ship, head on over to Coming Soon. It’s looking Pretty cool.

For those who don’t know: Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the fifth book (chronologically speaking) in C.S. Lewis’ Narnia series. It takes place about three years after the events of Prince Caspian (the fourth book) when Edmund, Lucy and their cousin, Eustace, are once again pulled into Narnia, this time landing aboard Caspian’s sea vessel, the titular Dawn Treader. Caspian, now king of Narnia, is honoring his oath to find the seven lost lords of Narnia at the edge of the world, so Edmund, Lucy and Eustace tag along for the voyage.

As far as the Narnia books go, Dawn Treader is by no means the most popular – but the plot does leave plenty of room for an entertaining adventure fantasy. That is, if 20th Century Fox can do the movie proper, now that the studio has taken over the Narnia series from Disney. We’ll see.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader is due in theaters on December 10, 2010.
