A life-size replica of the historic ship ‘Matthew’ will be used later this year to help promote The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
It hasn’t been announced exactly how the ship will be used, but apparently it will be outfitted to look like the Dawn Treader. The production could be planning to use the ship during the premier.
The Matthew is a replica of John Cabot’s ship which set sail for Asia over 500 years ago and first discovered Newfoundland. You can find out more about the ship at matthew.co.uk. The Matthew is usually anchored in Bristol but can sail to other locations.
Here are a few more pictures of the ship:
