    That. Is. Beautiful. Though I can't really tell what's on the sail?
    It's really become the Dawn Treader, and my negative thoughts I had at first have pretty much turned around. πŸ˜€ I love it!

  2. Val says:

    Wow! Looks awesome.

  3. Kate says:

    She's beautiful! And I Love that the N on the sail looks nothing like the Narnia Logo Font. Thank goodness.

  4. 7chronicles says:

    Just plain beautiful, I don't know what's on the sail, but the ship is better then I ever could have hoped for!!!! Well done to the crew and all who help put her together!!!!

  5. tenthofthatname says:

    Magnificent. I hope they keep it assembled for people who want to visit the ship after the movie, somehow. I would make the journey to wherever it is to set foot on the Dawn Treader.

  6. glumPuddle says:

    Exceeded all my expectations. This totally captures one of the most iconic images in the series.

  7. aussie_lucy says:

    Great pic. I wonder what's on the sail. I was hoping that it would be something to do with Aslan.

  8. Narnia 3 says:

    It's a beauty! But I still can't make out the image on the sail…

  12. yeswelovenarnia says:

    oh wow!!!! awesome!!!!!! i am at a loss of words!!!! she is exactly how I always imagined her!!!!)

  13. JadistarkilleR says:

    hmm….. the sail is pretty large so thats good. i already knew what the color was like so no surprises there. i'm not sure about the design on the sail though, is that supposed to be an N? and again we couldnt see the full design, what is that thing on top of the N? a crown? a compass? and where is the standard of the Lion?

  14. narnia freak says:

    I love it!It looks better than I imagined it!

  15. -queenSUSAN- says:

    it's absolutely gorgeous, wonderfully majestic, and as for that sail….! I just wish I could see the design more clearly.

  16. daughter of the King says:

    It's beautiful, except for the sail. I was hoping Aslan would be on it.

  17. narnian1 says:

    beautiful ship.

  18. Lutra's Pearl says:

    Wow, She is beautiful! She looks so proud and magnificent! Keep the story of Aslan alive!

  19. farsight1 says:

    'N' for narnia, I guess. Awesome image, I take back what I said a few months ago. The dragon head looks perfect.

  20. Fantasy Lover says:

    now that's what i'm talkin' about! πŸ™‚

  21. Mirima Rosetrader says:

    WOW!!! She is looks gorgeous! That is the most beautiful ship my eyes have ever looked upon! What is on the sail? Sail on VDT!

  22. wow! It looks great!!!!

  23. Ramandu's Daughter says:

    Oh wow! It's beutiful!! πŸ™‚

  24. narnian resident says:

    that is the most gorgeous ship i have ever seen in my life! i cant wait to see it on screen! wish i could tell what that logo on the sail looks like. it better be aslan or something to do with him. afterall, they need something of him on there, and i think a sail logo would be perfect to use.

  25. NarniaRox says:

    I think its a narnia emblem with a 'n' on it with some drawing on top. But the 'n' i think is a bit personalized. Not like any emblem we've seen so far. Maybe Michael Apted wanted to change the style a bit. I dunno. Just my thoughts…

  26. NarniaRox says:

    True, but this is only about a third of the sails. If you take a close look, theres the bottom of some design which could be aslan when added later.
    When you zoom in, you can see how the sail is attached, so it can be extended later by CGI to create the rest of the sails.

  27. Narnian1993 says:

    she is beautiful!!!!! πŸ™‚

  28. Lilprincessofthelion says:

    Very Beautiful! Very gorgeous. Not quite what I expected, but I don't know how they could have done better. The Sail is amazing and I'm glad to see it isn't a magenta sail like in some pictures. Very beautiful emblem, what ever it is. Good Job, designers!

  29. Kell says:

    WOW This has to be the best picture I have seen so far (beside the ones with Ben in them) Beautilfuly taken. Can't wait for this movie.

  30. Nightbird says:

    MORE BEAUTIFUL than I thought she would look! I am totally in love with this design! And I am even more excited about the movie now!:) (if that was possible!) πŸ™‚

  31. Lady Polly says:

    WOW!!! Amazing

  32. Aslan's my homeboy says:

    Wow she is gorgeous!

  33. Crimson Dragon says:

    Couldn't agree more. This ship is going to be forever associated with the Narnia movies… and I love it. A truly amazing job!

  34. Zoe says:

    I think above the 'N' is a crown.

  35. Riklionheart says:

    I think the sail is a little small in comparison to the ship.

  36. Riklionheart says:

    But it still looks epic

  37. The sail is BEAUTIFUL!I love it! and the ship is AMAZING! World's End or Bust!

  38. BradenWoodburn says:

    WOW! Totally amazing and incredibly sweet! Can't wait to see it on the big screen! Outstanding work!!! <3

  39. GlimGlum says:

    To me, that is most definitely the Dawn Treader. Should look great on the big screen. Still could be some CGI touches here and there; maybe for the sail.

  40. Aravis(narniafan#1) says:

    I know! And I have 2 get this out… AAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!!! ok, i'm good. Is it just me, or does it look a bit less plastic-ish? I think it looks, like, AMAZINGLY GREAT!!! Keep the story of Aslan Alive

  41. Werner Ridgeback says:

    Better than I imagined! Though I hope they add more sail during editing.

  42. MP_in_narnia says:

    Wow. *Jaw drops* WOW! Although I admit I wasn't too excited about the design when I saw the first pictures, I LOVE it now!

  43. Rilian says:

    I love it now, and the sail looks terrific!

  44. Reepicheep the fearless says:

    10/10 AGAIN!

  45. Nanriamiss says:

    The "evolution" of her? How about the "creation" of her? πŸ˜‰

  46. skandyfan says:

    OMG! This.Ship.looks.awesome! IΒ΄ve never seen such a beautiful ship in any other movie before! ItΒ΄s perfect for the Narnia-World! And the dragon looks very powerful! I am so excited to see that on the big screen! YEAH!

    Absolutely Amazingly gorgeous! It is so close to what I had as a mental image its uncanny. Sail on!

  48. PrincessMia241 says:

    Wow. That is just gorgeous. I love it.

  49. Ian says:

    keep in mind, they can increase the size of the sail with CGI. GO WETA!
