Dawn Treader art

11.26.2008

The DVD for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN is out in the UK already and apparently it contains some neat pre-production artwork for the next film in the series, THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER. Unfortunately for fans of the franchise, however, is that with the rather lackluster performance of PRINCE CASPIAN, DAWN TREADER looks less and less likely to happen. In DAWN TREADER, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie join Caspian on the titular boat to find the seven banished lords of Narnia. Click through to check out the rest of the artwork courtesy of "Film Chat".

Extra Tidbit: If DAWN TREADER doesn't happen, it's just as well. The rest of the books either don't or just peripherally feature the Pevensie's.

I love the Narnia movies, and I have a lot of friends who say Dawn Treader is one of the series' highlights. It would be a shame if it didn't get made. But yes--a Christmas release would be a far better choice.

Nice artwork, btw.

The "lackluster performance" of Prince Caspian? How is $419 million lackluster? That's $141 domestic, the rest international - same sort of ratio the first film had. The Narnia movies are very popular worldwide.

I agree with rtms, these need to be released in the christmas season instead of summer. I really liked the first 2 movies, but I'm hoping the new films will still find an audience when the main characters aren't the same.

It DOES matter if the other films are made! The Pevensies were the first characters in the series, but not the only! You can't exclude the other books offhand like that!

I don't know why they wouldn't make a third movie...Prince Caspian made 419 million worldwide, doesn't sound like a bad gross to me.

If this particular group of people never make another Narnia film, I will be very happy. While i've grown into other, better books, the seven Narnia books still have a definite magic and charm, something the films completely lost in their glazd, pop adaptation. Much like Chris Columbum's Harry Potter films, they kept the story well enough, but completely lost the essence. It's always possible that they will improve, but all things considered, I think it would be safer if they just stopped. But,

But, Hollywood being run by producers instead of actual artists, I doubt they're going to stop.

the chronicles of narnia: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER

I would like to see this film happen, I haven't read the books or knew of them till the films came out, I guess I became a fan after seeing the films, but I really enjoy fantasty/period films.

I hear that the third book is the last to feature the Pevensie children and after that Prince Caspian carries on with the storie on his own in the fourth book, I would still like to see at least the third book get made in to a film.

The Horse and His Boy and The Magician's Nephew always interested me the most and I always imagined them as great movies. I even imagined directing The Magician's Nephew myself actually. Never cared much for The Last Battle though. But anyway, yeah, its pretty sad Prince Caspian didn't do so well. I didn't like it or the first one, but I've still looked forward to the Dawn Treader and the rest. Oh well. Maybe they'll still happen someday, just not as a single franchise. Which could suck, but

If Disney would put this in the Christmas season instead of the summer blockbuster season they would see a fair return. It was a incredibly stupid move of Disney to let Prince Caspian compete with the blockbusters.It's not a blockbuster movie.

Hope it gets made

I'm with luke319

The last four books in the Narnia series kick ass. I don't get how George Lucas can make Star Wars movies for $100 million, but no one else in Hollywood can figure out how to get a big picture made for the same kind of cake.

No, it's not just as well, because The Last Battle is the best book in the series, and That Magician's Nephew would be the most impressive to see on film, and if this doesn't happen than neither will they.

Yes, I was a huge fan of the series as a kid and yes I am a huge fan of the films.
