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.

You can read Nicolas’s full report on his blog here.

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.

Thanks to icarus for the heads-up!

    I think it would be funny if they had people in the movie accidentally call him PRINCE Caspian and they have to correct them….it would kind of be like the part in PC when Miraz called Edmund Prince… 😀

  4. Puddleglum says:

    Oh My. (blushing) Mrs. Puddleglum best not be seeing all this attention from the ladies. Would'nt want her thinking wrong of it.
    Do hope some of the proper manners come about to the young who see it from King Caspian, King Edmund, and Queen Lucy.

  5. Lady Galadriel says:

    Indeed, such courtesy, Puddleglum!

  6. skandargirl_95 says:

    yeah…I think he'd correct all the people still calling him "Prince"…that'd be a tad funny…
    and a smile popped up my face when I read the blog…my last name is Nicolas…[just sharing]…

    Definitely! We should get a whole fellowship of Narnia fans together and go to the Gold Coast! "Those that go with you, no oath nor bond is laid to go further than you will." (But I think we'll want to go the whole way!)

  13. Lady Galadriel says:
