Posted June 17, 2010 1:00 am by fantasia_kitty
This is the moment we’ve been waiting for since Prince Caspian came out — the unveiling of the first trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader! This film has had a tough journey from the book to the screen; for a while we didn’t even know if it would be made. The voyage isn’t over, but at long last the trailer has arrived in all its glory to tantalize Narnia fans around the world.
Share your thoughts in the comments section below and in our forum.
Fox has sent us a couple of fun little Aslan badges. If you like, you change your profile picture to let the world know you’ve seen the Dawn Treader Trailer.
Opening shot in Cambridge with recruitment posters
Recruitment Officer: Are you sure you’re 18?
Edmund: Why, do I look older?
Lucy: Edmund, you’re supposed to be helping me with the groceries.
Other boys in line: [laughter] Good luck next time eh squirt?
Outside of the recruitment building Edmund and Lucy load up their groceries on a bicycle
Edmund: Squirt! I’m a king.
Lucy: Not in this world.

In the Scrubb household, Edmund and Lucy study a painting of an ocean with a tiny ship sailing on it
Edmund: Lucy, have you seen this ship before
A closeup of the painting and the waves are starting to roll and on one side a tiny trickle of water forms
Lucy: It’s very Narnian looking isn’t it?
In the same bedroom, all of a sudden the painting starts gushing water into the room and Edmund, Lucy and Eustace look dumbfounded
Eustace: What’s going on here?
Lucy: Edmund the painting!
Eustace yells and pulls it off the wall. Edmund and Lucy try to help, but water is rapidly filling the bedroom. Lucy screams and falls and suddenly the room is completely underwater with furniture floating around. They swim upwards towards the surface and just as they reach it and gasp for air Lucy turns and sees the Dawn Treader sailing towards them.
Caspian and Lucy are hoisted out of the water onto the ship. Lucy, now in Narnian clothes looks into a mirror and sees her reflection and Aslan looking back at her.
Aslan: Welcome. You have come far, but your journey lies beyond.
A shot of the Dawn Treader sailing away from an island at sunset. A shot of a minotaur on board as well as a couple crew members in the background. A shot of Lucy and Edmund standing on deck wrapped in blankets.
Reepicheep: Your majesties!
A shot of a mermaid swimming in the water next to the ship. She waves and Lucy waves back.
Edmund: So if there are no wars to fight, then why are we here?
Caspian walks through a door followed by Edmund and someone else. Edmund looks through a spyglass. A shot of an island surrounded by fog. A shot of Coriakin magically throwing a map across the floor.
Coriakin: You are all about to be tested.
A shot of Eustace peeking through something. Smoking tendrils surround the ship and head towards the crew members. One in particular heads towards Edmund.
White Witch: Edmund, I can make you my king.
A vision of the White Witch
White Witch: And much more.
Lucy blows across the cover of the Magician’s Book and the letters on the front of it arrange into The Book of Incantations. She opens it. She sees a reflection of herself on one page and then begins to transform into Susan.
Lucy: I’m beautiful.
Lucy hears a lion roar and jumps away from the book as pages quickly turn away from the page. Next shot is Lucy standing in the Magician’s room as snow is falling all around her. She gazes up in wonder.
Coriakin: You have an extraordinary destiny.
Reepicheep quickly climbs up the mast of the Dawn Treader where he reaches the crow’s nest and looks out smiling.
Coriakin: Something greater than you could have imagined.
Narrator: From C. S. Lewis’ epic masterpiece…
Shot of the crew aboard the Dawn Treader with Drinian at the helm. Shot of what is likely Narrowhaven. Shot of Lilliandil glowing beautifully.
Lilliandil: The fate of Narnia depends on you.
Narrator: This Christmas…
Edmund holds Rhindon in his hand. It’s glowing blue. Lilliandil turns back into a star and shoots into the heavens while Caspian, Edmund, and Lucy look on.
Narrator: Return to Hope
Shot of a faun doing a flip in Narrowhaven and kicking someone. Shot of Lucy aboard the Dawn Treader about to fire an arrow.
Narrator: Return to Magic
In the magician’s study, suddenly where he was once invisible, Coriakin turns around with a book in his hand. Shot changes to the Dufflepuds bouncing around on one foot with Eustace standing in the middle of them looking dumbfounded.
Chief Dufflepud: This place just gets weirder and weirder.
Narrator: Return to Narnia
Shot of Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and Reepicheep paddling a rowboat through the sea of lilies. Shot of Aslan standing on dry ground next to Caspian, Edmund, Eustace, Lucy, and Reepicheep while holding back a wave.
Aslan: You have returned for a reason. Your adventure begins now.
Shot of Peter. Shot of Susan. Shot of Lucy. Shot of Edmund. Aslan standing on the shore roars.
