[UPDATE: A new foreign poster for Voyage of the Dawn Treader has emerged as well.]

Witness the next chapter in an epic fantasy series that will be packed with action and presented in digital 3D – no, not the seventh Harry Potter movie, we mean The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

An international trailer for Voyage of the Dawn Treader is online and it features both details about the film’s plot and footage of CG dragons, animals, and witches all wreaking havoc.

Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes are back to play Lucy and Edmund Pevensie, respectively, in the latest Narnia movie. Joining the Pevensies on their new quest is their less-than-pleasant cousin, Eustace Scrubb (played by Will Poulter), along with Ben Barnes as the titular hero of the second Narnia pic, Prince Caspian. Liam Neeson will once again voice the otherworldly lion, Aslan, while Simon Pegg will provide the vocals for the warrior mouse Reepicheep.

The 2nd U.S. trailer for Voyage of the Dawn Treader offered little insight into the story of the third Narnia movie – this international preview, by comparison, reveals that, well, the Pevensies’ latest adventure is pretty much the same as before: save Narnia from encroaching forces of evil.

Parents looking for a more family-friendly fantasy feature to take their young ones to see during the holiday season might pass on Harry Potter 7 and check out the latest Narnia instead. Voyage of the Dawn Treader doesn’t look to be any more violent or scary than its predecessors were.

Therein lies a problem for the film – unlike ┬áthe Harry Potter franchise or even the Twlight movies, the Chronicles of Narnia do not become steadily darker and more adult as the series progresses. Younger moviegoers that loved The Lion, The Witch, & The Wardrobe back in 2005 have grown up a bit since then and might now have less interest in seeing a new Narnia film that feels very similar to that first, in terms of its story and even the quality of visual FX on display.

The novelty of 3D has not worn off completely yet, so the technology should help Voyage of the Dawn Treader on the financial side. Tron Legacy could draw away both 3D theaters and ticket buyers from the new Chronicles of Narnia, since both are big-budget, FX extravaganzas that look to appeal to the family crowd this December. We will have to wait and see what effect the two have on one another’s returns at the box office.

Update: Check out the new French poster for Voyage of the Dawn Treader below:

  1. im looking forward to this one :)

  2. Wow this trailer completely changed my mind about this film. Wasnt going to see it, but now i am for sure. Although it seems like its made several changes in the original story

  3. I enjoyed the first two films and I am sure I will enjoy this one as well..

  4. Im not a huge narnia fan the first two were ok,but this one looks better than the other two so i shall see this one…

    • oy yeah!! not a huge Narnia fan? Potter sucks!! ;)

      • You want war you got it GK333,potter is 1,000000000000 better than Narnia,please dont make me laugh…

  5. Nice dude.

  6. I am so looking forward to this movie. It was my favorite book of the series when I first read it and that hasn’t changed in many subsequent reads. I hope the movie stays true to the books.

    I think the reviewer misses a HUGE audience, the original readers of the series that have grown up with the books and had to endure years of badly made low budget real and animated movies of the first book. I am one of many adults that L O V E the fact that the movies [books] don’t get too much darker and more violent. BTW, have you READ the books? they do get darker and more grown up. The Silver Chair deals with sorcery and includes [spoiler alert] canabolistic giants, death, and marshwiggles [the appitome of dark depression. I mean, have you ever met one? a depressing encounter I guarantee!]. The next book deals with the end of an alien world and the last book deals with the end of all of several worlds. I love these books!

  7. Did they change the plot? I do not remember the deal with the swords here (and I do not want to reread the book).

    Also, any idea if this is converted 3D?

  8. At about 2:02, there’s a sweet clip of Gyarados vs Charizard.

  9. These new films just makes me more nostalgic for the old BBC series which were on the telly when I was a child.
    Granted the sfx has come a long way since then, but I still think Reepicheep is better when played by a dwarf in a mouse costume.

  10. Wow that poster is bad ass!!

  11. I always wanted that Edmund gets to be the king/husband of the white queen. Dunno why, they seem like a good couple. And she really seems to like him <3
    Go for it Edmund!

    • WTF? LMAO!!!

      • wtf^^ – why not, she’s always talking about she wants him and she wants to make him her king… so.. i guess.. there’s not much of an option here.
