The Dawn Treader Crew in Armor

Kerrie Gurney has posted a set of pictures on her Blogspot account that shows the Dawn Treader crew (including Caspian) in armor. The armor the crew is wearing has a very different look to it than the armor that was used by the Telmarines in Prince Caspian – though Caspian’s armor sort of resembles Miraz’s armor a bit. Another interesting thing to note is one of the crew has a wound on his face.

Thanks to gryphon8 and jnjewlz for the heads-up!

UPDATE: Tamara has uploaded a video, and sent us a report with pictures. The pictures include a bell being supported by two faun statues, Lucy and Edmund in armor, and close-up of the ship’s name engraved, and the mysterious young girl we have been seeing.

The ship looks like its been attacked and the railing has been smashed in several places. I saw a lot of Georgie and she seems extremely cheeky, friendly and happy. Always talking to everyone! I couldn’t hear her though.. She and Skandar seemed to get on really well, they’d be talking right up until they called Action! then as soon as they called Cut! they’d just continue the conversation as if nothing had happened. Didn’t get to see any of Ben’s scenes because I had to leave but I did see him stalking around the back behind the crew a bit. He, like Skandar was wearing battle armour.Β  Also saw some female extras.

    What do you mean? I thought they were going to use genuine armor straight from Narnia itself.

    Whoops, I meant "I'm glad I'm NOT the only one". Don't you just hate typos? πŸ˜›

  3. Princess Arya says:

    They wrecked the ship? What picture? I must have missed it!

  4. narniafan4ever says:

    Hey, I totally understand. I would be a little concerned, too if I didn't know that she is wearing Caspian's clothing after getting her own clothes soaking wet. I hope they do keep her feminine and sweet side. But, yes, she is still strong, as portrayed in the books. So, your not alone. πŸ™‚

  5. Prince Norin says:

    The crushed parts of the ship make me think of the sea serpent… but the presence of the extras and the little girl make me wonder whethe or not there might be an escalated conflict between the slavers/Gumpas' supporters and the Narnians on the Lone Islands.

    But let's keep in mind that a few little changes or liberties does not mean it is departing from the book near as much as Prince Caspian. From what I can tell, they are sticking very closely, while still taking a little artistic liberty… a good approach.

    As for the armor, I think it has been well-done… a nice blend of Telmarine and Narnian (which, no matter how you feel, is necessary for the integrity of the film series… I don't think anyone would want movies that claim to be a series being all disjointed and unconnected).

  6. HappyGiant says:

    At least they didn't make the armor purple. You'll never know what they'll do… I don't see anything wrong with the telmerine look. Wait till you see it on screen. these are spy cameras, and the clothes, people, backround might look a lot different in theater because of camera quality.

  7. Lucy Helen Ycul says:

    I am glad that there are pictures of Lucy and Edmund. I'm excited that Lucy gets a sword so she has more protection along woth her dagger. πŸ˜€

  8. Lillyput90 says:

    I understand that she borrows Caspian's clothes, but in the book it was only while her own clothes were being washed and dried. Also if this is the scene with the sea serpent (unless the chronological order of events is changed) it is after they have left Narrowhaven. Therefore, Lucy has bought "lots of lovely new things" in Narrowhaven and no longer needs to wear Caspian's clothes. It does look like a Dwarf sword but still….why? I'm just hoping that Lucy's character is not destroyed (like Peter's or Susan's). I mean Lucy is the heart that hears Aslan's heart. Her trial in Coriakin's house is where she learns her most valuable lesson. I just don't want her to turn into another Elizabeth Swan.

  9. HappyGiant says:

    I think if anyone should have the sword, it's Edmund! Ed is his brother after all!

  10. daughter of the King says:

    New thought, since it appears that the female extras are wearing Lone Islandish costumes, could they be rescued slaves? After Lord Bern finds out who Caspian is, they go and rescue Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, Reepicheep and the other slaves by force? And then here they're either getting ready for a fight with the pirates, or they just won. And the little girl could be a slave that they rescued that is hanging around Lucy. That idea just all of a sudden popped into my head and is the only one I can come up with that makes sense.

  11. HappyGiant says:

    I can understand why you're concerned, but Lucy is supposed to wear caspian's clothes and I think she looks cute in them! Having a sword makes her not only seem braver then if she had a dagger (she IS queen lucy the valiant), she is different from Susan. besides, Lucy will always have a sweet personality.

  12. NobleNarnian81 says:

    It appears as if Lucy has her fire flower potion and Edumund had Peter's sword… NICE. πŸ™‚

  13. Griffle says:

    I love the look of Edmunds and Caspian's armour, as well as Lucy's clothes. Not what i expected, but i definitely like the look.

    Weta is NOT involved. Doesn't really matter IMO. I love their work, but I just want something different this time around. I'm getting it. I'm happy! πŸ™‚

  14. yeswelovenarnia says:

    wow awesome!! (whos the girl?????) they can't have a girl on the Dawn Treader!!!!!!! IT wasn't in the book!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! aaaaaaaaa!!!!!!

  15. Lord Bern says:

    Lots interesting stuff… Edmund has Rhindon, which is a great sign! I like the armor but I can't think of a reason why the crew would have it on. They wouldn't have time to put it on before the sea serpent attacked so I hope this doesn't have anything to do with the "pitched battles" stuff. Maybe I'm forgetting something though.

  16. Weapon Master says:

    I like your mindset.

  17. ASLAN'S CHILD says:

    OMG.the pictures are looking awesome im loving this spy cameras.skandar looks so cute with his arm around georgue.and geogie looks gorgeous.i can't wait this long for the movie to come out.they need to move the date alittle closer.I NEED TO SEE THIS MOVIE!!!!!

  18. BenBarnesGal says:


  19. Starlily says:

    Yeah, I think I like how the armor looks. And I totally want to wear Lucy's outfit!! It looks so cool! Adventurous, and yet almost feminine. I can't wait to see these scenes in the movie!

  20. Narniamiss says:

    I am much happier that Ed now has Rhindon, I think it belongs more in his hands than Casnpian's.

  21. Queen Swanwhite says:

    Oh yes, for her to have Trumpkin's sword would be very cool!

  22. Mirima Rosetrader says:

    OMG the pictures are awesome! There are pictures of Georgie and Skandar and they are AWESEOME!!! I am dying to see the movie!!!! Lucy looks AWESOME in the armor! Who are all those village people in the pics? I wonder who they are fighting? Ed definitely deserves Rhindon it's his brother's sword after all! Oh man! I am hyperventilating! I am so loving the movie so far and I haven't even seen it! PLEASE PUT OUT A TRAILER OR I SHALL DIE OF EXCITEMENT AND ANXIETY!!!! Sail on VDT!!!

  23. narnian resident says:

    wow! this is all so new! look at georgie! she grew like crazy! she's almost as tall as skander! those two are so cute together, really brother and sister looking! lucy looks so amazing, with her sword and armor. that would be cool if they now include her in battles and stuff, since she's old enough, like how susan got to be included in PC. although i wonder what they're wearing that for? i hope there's no battle in this movie! i love how georgie is "cheeky". she may have grown up, but she certainly has not lost her wit and character! im sure she's keeping everyone on their toes! everyone and everything looks so amazing! im getting really, REALLY excited!!!

  24. Aslan's my homeboy says:

    yep I noticed that too

  25. narnian resident says:

    i thought caspian had rhindon? perhaps he gave it to edmund because he is peter's brother. thats cool!

  26. Ranger of Llangolenn says:

    Blah to the armor!

  27. Alsan's my homeboy says:

    ahhhhh Skandar is soooo georgous! Georgie looks like her usual perky self, I love her! awesome pics!

  28. Silver the Wanderer says:

    I hope we get to see her wear a dress at least once in the movie, but I can understand why she's dressed the way she is. I don't think a dress is the most practical thing to wear while voyaging aboard a ship…

  29. eustacegirl says:

    what in the world ar ethey doing to georgie's hair in this pic?

  30. scrubb says:

    wow, everyone looks so grown up! its so sad! (not really everyones got togrow up som time)

  31. always narnian says:

    NO! EDMUND is using Rhindon! I loved edmund's sword! I do not like Rhindon! And…Caspian….looks…not so good with that hair and beard. =\

  32. Eden says:

    WOW! There has been SO much news on VotDT lately, I can hardly keep up with it! A big thank you to everyone who is getting these photos!!!

  33. Laura Elizabeth says:

    I don't like her having a sword. In The Horse and His Boy, she didn't fight, per se, but stayed with the archers and shot a bow (and I think it's a little silly anyways that Lewis added that, especially after Father Christmas said that 'Battles are ugly when women fight', which could be amended to 'Women are ugly when they fight'. Of course, it's different in self defense, so…) anyways, I like Lucy's tunic, but I don't like the pants. But I think Edmund looks really good! (please don't mistake that as a fangirl comment. LOL πŸ˜‰

  34. K. J. Hill says:

    i'm just going to say anything…..It's too cool to express properly! πŸ™‚

  35. Puddleglum says:

    Question for anyone with better eyes than mine.
    Can anyone make out what is written on the mast of the Dawn Treader in some of the photos?
    Without hauling out the books I cannot recall anything written there.

  36. o i no lucys out fit looks good but i think it should look more like a queens clothes like a short dress or somethin

  37. ReepI says:

    Seems you know me better than myself then πŸ˜›

  38. Lirenel says:

    I like Lucy's clothes here much better than Susan's "warrior woman outfits". It's more fitting to be worn on a ship, and I think she still looks very feminine in them. Honestly, I always thought it would be silly to wear a dress on a long voyage like this one. Maybe on a coastal cruise, like on the Splendour Hyaline, but not on this journey to the unknown.

  39. narniafan4ever says:

    I think Edmund should have the sword. And the facial hair on Caspian makes him look like a king. πŸ™‚

  40. Bother Eustace says:

    YES! I was like… Hey, Rhindon! Nice! I think it's fitting.

  41. always narnian says:

    I don't like it. And who say's kings have to have beards? If you ask me…he looks too girly to be a king…sorry

  42. Feather~Light~Heart says:

    HHm……I'm not going to really judge, cause it'll look better in the movie i'm sure, but i'm also not sure what i think of these outfits/armour. Lucy's is cool, but not sure about Edmund's. And oh my word Georgie must've grown a lot cause she's almost as tall as Skandar!!!!!!!!! And it's so cute how in some pics Skandar has his arm around Lucy. Are they fimling or rehearsing there or just off set I wondrr??? And does anyone else feel that SKandar looks a lot younger in these photos? That's weird…anyhue Sail on VDT!!!

  43. King Skandar the Just says:

    Wow! these are amazing! I LOVE the pics of Skandar, Georgie, and Will!
    I love the Costumes, Armor, and Swords!
    Thank you Kerrie!

  44. 220chrisTian says:

    "Lucy is the heart that hears Aslan’s heart." What a beautiful sentence! But it's true! πŸ˜€

  45. Narniabigfan says:

    Wow…Skandar and Georgie looks really cool and more looks like that they're siblings!!!it's so cute that Skandar has his arm around Georgie!I never think about this before,but now,i think they're so cute together…And georgie is so tall,she's almost as tall as skandar,although Georgie is 14 and Skandar's 18!I love the pics,and i prefer Skandar have Rhindon than Caspian!It's gonna be so cool if Skandar have it!It's gonna be like heritage!from Peter to Edmund!

  46. Ok this is just a question, but in the books aren't Lucy and Edmund suppose to be a year apart, but in real life Georgie and Skandar 2-3 years apart? Because if you looked at her flickr account it shows Georgie and Skandar together and they look the same age.

  47. emeecai says:

    Lucy's clothing is dead on as far as it doesnt look like queens clothing since in the book she had to wear some spare clothes of caspian since she was the only female onboard.

  48. celtic13 says:

    omigosh! where have I been when all this is going on?!?! I left Narniaweb for a little while cause there was lik no news, and now a gazilion things are happening, and I don't know where to start looking! All I know is that I will be here a lot more now!!
    Who is that little girl who jumped overboard in the video? she was to small to be Lucy. And was that Caspian who jumped after her?? I have no idea what's going on! lol!

  49. celtic13 says:

    OMIGOSH!!! Caspian has a BEARD?!?!?! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! He looks so.. so.. WEIRD!

  50. narniafan4ever says:

    I agree. totally! Edmund should definitely be the one who gets the sword. πŸ™‚

  51. narniafan4ever says:

    I think that they might have been filming the scene where they are heading into the black cloud which ended being the island of dreams. At least, the book said that Caspian ordered all his men into armor as they entered the area. Just a thought, though. πŸ™‚

    Wow… awesome.
