Battles in VDT?
Third Floor, Inc has been working on pre-visualization for “Voyage of the Dawn Treader” (some of which can be seen on the “Prince Caspian” DVD/Blu-ray). This comes from their website:
“Based on the success of their previous collaboration, The Third Floor team is called upon to help develop the third installment of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. The Third Floor artists became involved early on to explore conceptual designs in 3-D. After refining the elements in 3-D, additional team members were brought on to help tackle some of the major battle sequences, this time above and below the water.”
This could mean a lot, or it could mean nothing at all. For example, is the sea-serpent attack considered a battle below the water? Also, keep in mind that this is coming from Third Floor’s website; it is not part of an official synopsis released by Fox or Walden, so take this with a grain of salt. Whatever the case, the film is still deep in pre-production, and Fox and Walden are still working out script and budgetary issues. So, nothing is set in stone. (Discuss)
UPDATE: The description for this YouTube video says that in VDT, “there will be a battle that takes place underwater, involving merman and crew members of the Dawn Treader. Well, at least it is in the pre-viz.” Anyone could write anything in a YouTube video description. So, take this with a few gallons of salt.
