Visits to the Dawn Treader Set
There are a couple blogs out there describing personal The Voyage of the Dawn Treader set visits at Movie World. There aren’t very many spoilers, but they’re still fun to read.
The first is from the blog of Nicholas Greening:
Last Friday I went to Movie World on the Gold Coast to meet with Mr Douglas Gresham, the stepson of C.S. Lewis who was the author of The Chronicles of Narnia.
Douglas Gresham very kindly allowed me and my family to see the filming of Narnia, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. We met a lot of the actors including Ben Barnes (King Caspian), Georgie Henley( Lucy Pevensie) and many of the cast and crew.
Gary Sweet (Lord Drinian, the captain of the Dawn Treader) and Skandar Keynes (Edmund Pevensie) were busy acting out a scene where the Dawn Treader is being attacked by a sea monster. The Dawn Treader was being moved around by it’s hydrolic base and all the actors were falling across the deck.

The second report comes from dkyarian’s livejournal blog and it reads:
One of the coolest things we’ve been able to do was our last full day on the East Coast…we were able to visit the set of the third Narnia film, “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader”!! (Many thanks to Pastor Bob! J ) We were given a personal tour of the studios by the PR Director, who let us walk through sets (a large town square, Prince Caspian’s ship quarters, & on top of the giant ship!). He also answered so many questions we had about filming, PR, etc. We also watched filming in the cast member’s chairs (I was sitting in Ben Barnes’ chair-he is the actor that plays Caspian!); there is SO much that goes into a full-length film, I couldn’t believe it! Even just one minor scene took so long to rehearse, try different angles, etc.
