Narnia.com Unlocks the Magician’s Island

Posted August 9, 2010 7:50 am by fantasia_kitty

Narnia.com has updated this morning. You can now sail your Dawn Treader ship and land on the Magician’s Island. Once you disembark, a new screen appears with Caspian, Edmund, and Drinian surrounded by invisible Duffers and Lucy off in the distance.

As you click around on the page, you’ll see some of the Dufflepuds show up and the doors to the Magician’s House will also appear, open, and Lucy enters.

If you click on the Dawn Treader in the background, it will allow you to download the image, but there’s a giant thing of sparkles in the middle of it so hopefully that image will be cleaned up later!

There’s are a few other tidbits here and there that we didn’t mention so head on over and check them out!

Thanks starkat for the heads up!

    Sounds interesting. I think I will go check it out!

    cool, I saw the above image earlier and didn’t know what Island it was…my mind is now at rest, though let me say that that is NOT how I pictured Dufflepud Island.

    • jordanjay29 says:

      Hello? Willy Wonka, are you there?

    • LucyTheValiant says:

      I definitly agree, its not how i pictured the island as well

    • -centaur- says:

      I also thought it looked like something out of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

      • LucyTheValiant says:

        once again…exactly my thoughts
        while reading the book i pictured it a lot brighter and more airy.

    • Dufflepoodle says:

      See Lucy standing in front of the magical door?
      I’m guessing that the magician keeps his house hidden, save the doorway. This would add a greater sense of awe as she walks through it.

  • Lucy says:

    Oooh…ahhh….

  • FriendOfNarnia2 says:

    I think my image of Dufflepud Island has been greatly influenced by the BBC version, but this a very interesting and magical interpretation of that strange land.

  • DamselJillPole says:

    Okay that looks totally awesome!! πŸ˜€ So i guess now we know how Lucy enters the invisible house because the doors aren’t invisible.

    • Aslan's Meadow says:

      If you watch the short clip on lucy on the magican’s island..you will see her enter, then the doors disapear.

      • Starlily says:

        Yeah, it’s almost spooky. πŸ˜› If I were Edmund and Caspian, I wouldn’t want her to go in there alone.

  • narnialover101 says:

    This is not at ALL how I pictured the Island, but I think it looks okay. Not preferable, but visually it’s pretty stunning.

  • Raticus says:

    Hopefully they’ll provide us with a newer cleaned-up wallpaper. The resolution is awful. Not to mention that there’s a top half of a tree floating mysteriously in the background.

  • silent warrior Trinity-hawkeye291 says:

    NO WAY!! seriously I’m shocked to hear this!

  • LL says:

    I like how Lucy’s just gaping blankly at the double doors…LOL

  • Waleed Sajjad Khan says:

    Sweet! I’m going to go there today. πŸ˜‰

  • Mirima Rosetrader says:

    Wow cool! I’m totally checking this out! πŸ˜€

  • Nel says:

    The picture is interesting, but it looks more like something out of the new Alice in Wonderland movie than Narnia to me. I imagined a bit bit more pristine English estate-ish and a trifle less crazy corkscrews. Looks neat though…I guess the crazy garden matches the crazy dufflepuds.

    • Starlily says:

      Agreed. Looks a little crazy and it’s not how I pictured it (I also liked the English estate look), but it’s true the Dufflepuds are also crazy, and I guess I’m open to new interpretations of the island–as long as the general plot isn’t too messed up. So cool to be able to see more of the picture we’d seen before!

  • narnian resident says:

    wow it looks so amazing! now this is what i call the Magician’s Island! i think its truly breathtaking! and oh my goodness those dufflepuds are so cool! they’re perfect! i dont find the wierd plants and garden at all bad. they make the island all the more interesting and strange, which is perfect for Coriakin and the Dufflepuds. i love how it looks weird and almost intimidating. i think they did an awesome job on this!

  • Ambervina says:

    Question: is the download really high for this site? We’re on limited Internet so I don’t know if I can do this.

  • Leanna says:

    I have a question too. Is this sight safe for children? If it isn’t I don’t want to be a part of it.

  • MB says:

    The trees look like a bit like dog poos.

  • jono says:

    oh i’m so dissapointed! πŸ™ the island looks so ridiculous and juvenile! ugh the way this whole movie looks makes me sick! πŸ™ the fist two were good, and now the new director is ruining the third one! i am very sad…

    • Ariel_of_Narnia says:

      I’m sure there are many who share your opinion, jono, and there are those that are all ecstatic about what they’ve seen so far. Some, like myself, are unsure based on what’s surfaced so far but are hoping for the best. Give VDT a chance. You may (or, of course, may not) be surprised.

      • jono says:

        yeah, i understand that there are a lot of different opinions flying around at this point, and i’d like to say that i have the same opinion as you, i just go overboard sometimes when i voice (or write lol) my feelings and opinions. πŸ™‚

    • LL says:

      Woah, simmer down. If you’d like some reassurance, rent the BBC Narnia tapes and then compare. I’m sure they won’t match up to today’s version…unless, of course, you prefer people running around in animal costumes and mind-blowing cartoonistic effects. πŸ™‚

      • jono says:

        hahaha i’ve seen the BBC versions! those were just pathetic! but even after seeing them AND comparing them to this, i’m still very dissapointed! this reminds me of willy wonka or something, and i despise willy wonka! i don’t know, maybe the movie wont be as bad as how it looks thus far, but i’m still going to be very skeptical! after the trailers and pics, i definitely don’t trust the new director at all πŸ™

  • HighQueen_Of_LanternWaste says:

    I found a magical item unintentionally while exploring the island in one of the trees

  • thenarnia24 says:

    ThIs island is so aws0me!!!!! U PPL MAKE ME SICK!! iTS THE MAGNI.. ISLAND OK SO THE ISLAND ITS SUPOSSED TO LOOK VERRY MAGICAL AND FANTASTICAL!! i LOVE HOW THEY MADE THIS GARDEN I LOVE NARNIA AND I GIVE GOOD COMMENTS ABOUT THE FILM!! mICHAEL APTED U R A AWSOME DIRECTOR THNX 4 MAKING THE THIRD NARNIA FILM THIS GARDEN LOOKS AWSOME SAME AS HOW THE MOVIE WILL BE EXTREAMLY AWSOMER!!!!!!

    • Ted C says:

      I thought the last two Narnia movies where "extreamly awsomer" so I’m sure this one will be also. I cant wait to see the "magni…island" come to life. It will be "aws0me". I hope my good comment didn’t make you sick.

    • jono says:

      haha are you talking about my comment making you sick? sorry, but i like to voice my opinions, and the people who agree with me on not liking the movie so far are definitely in the minority πŸ˜‰ sorry if i was one of the people who ‘made you sick’, i just prefer movies that are more action-packed and epic (like the first two) oppose to those that are whimsical and childish (like how this one is looking) πŸ™‚ but everyone is different

      • McGunn says:

        Haha, love your comment thenarnia24 lol:)

        I think all narnia fans will be worried that their idea of each of the islands will be messed with, but we just have to accept that when someone’s making a film it’s their idea of it all that will show on screen.

        The duffers are childish and the garden seems to mirror their personalities. I like it, but the only way I’ll get to see "my" version of it will be by reading the book again, or if I get to make a film of my own someday, which is less likely:)

      • jono says:

        haha very well said, McGunn! πŸ™‚
        i guess my problem with this is that even though the first two Narnia movies were not exaclty how i pictured it, i still thought they were AMAZING becuase they fit the genre i like…but this movie…this movie definitely does NOT fit my genre, and i don’t think it will fit with the first two movies either…that’s my problem with it…it’s like the new director never saw the first two movies! πŸ™ oh well, i’ll live i guess lol

  • Not Of This World says:

    This looks so cool!

  • Starlily says:

    What is that white stuff on the closest shrubbery in the picture? Is it snow? Or just the coloring of the bushes?

    Looks pretty cool when it comes up on the screen. Almost like you’re there. And the Dufflepuds appear and Lucy disappears through the door…:P Can’t wait to see this stuff in the movie, even if it is quite different from the book.

  • Jill says:

    I really like it and it isn’t what i thought it would be, can’t wait to see it in motion.

  • Reepicheep says:

    Looks slightly too childish

    • jono says:

      oh i so agree with you!!! just change the word ‘slightly’ for extremely!

    • Arieh says:

      I think we sometimes forget that there /are/ children’s books and that they’re NOT Lord of the Rings. Dawn Treader is not Epic, there are not wars. That’s why it is so different than the other two books (and movies) before it. It’s a fantastical voyage with fantastical things. While not how I pictured it this island does indeed reflect that.

  • Bookwyrm says:

    When we first saw pictures of the garden back during filming, I liked it. Now, not so much. It’s too over-the-top and very Tim Burton. But then the concept art of the house looks over-the-top and too ornate, so I guess the whole island is going to look ridiculous.
