Preliminary Dawn Treader Release Dates

We’ve received a lot of inquiries lately asking about release dates for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. Today we discovered that IMDb has a few dates up on their page for VDT that you can take a peek at here.

The big ones are France on December 8; Australia, and Germany on December 9; and the USA and the UK on December 10.

While IMDb doesn’t always have 100% accurate information, we’re pretty sure these release dates are correct as they match the release dates Fox set for Avatar (which can be seen here if you wish to compare).

For the record, we checked BoxOfficeMojo to corroborate IMDb, and they do, with one exception. According to BOM, Bulgaria gets the movie on May 7, 2010. We’re pretty sure that’s NOT correct.

There is still no word on the world premiere, but a little birdy tells us it might be in London.

  2. daughter of the King says:

    I'd go with you glumPuddle if that wasn't the week before finals.

  3. Long Live King Skandar says:

    France gets it 2 days before USA does?? hmmm…um…je ne parle pas francais…but je suis DESPERATE to see it ASAP. I sure wish the world premiere would be in NYC like it was last time

  4. Cynthia says:

    YAY!!!!!! sooo excited! too bad I have to wait until Dec. 10… 🙁

  5. iLiveInNarnia says:

    I should save up a ticket for the world premiere. 🙂 I can't wait.

  6. Lillyput90 says:

    What about NZ?

  7. 220chrisTian says:

    This list has been on IMDB's VDT page for months. Why is it just now showing up on NarniaWeb? Is IMDB that unreliable?

  8. Oh my…it comes out THIS year!!! I can't wait.

  9. AndreyaofNarnia says:

    I wish I lived in France. Oh well. Only 317 days more! Sail on VDT!!

  10. Lutra's Pearl says:

    I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!!!!!

  11. Zoe says:

    No date yet for Canada 🙁

  12. andrea says:

    mmm.. i wonder whos the little birdy?

  13. fantasia_kitty says:

    Well… I'm not completely omniscient when it comes to NarniaWeb news. I just found it today and if no one sends it in as a spy report, that's the best I can do.

  14. Aslan's my homeboy says:

    Don't worry I am sure that it comes out the same day as the US and UK 😉

  15. narnian resident says:

    tu FAIS parler francais! lol tu es amusant! j'adore francais beaucoup 🙂

    i just love talking french 😀

  16. narnian resident says:

    it comes out on my brother's birthday! im going to tell him and see if we can go together. he's a big narnia fan too, but not as fan crazy about it as i am 😀

  17. Eva says:

    Yay, the Netherlands get if BEFORE the USA & UK? That is really a dream coming true 😉 Sorry guys.. I still have a trauma from 2 years ago, where we had to wait for two whole extra weeks for the movie to come out, THAT was torture..

  18. Rilianluvr4evr says:

    Oh gosh tht would be totally unfair if Bulgaria got to see it before the US or UK. I mean we're the ones who are making and marketing it. I guess I gotta more to Bulgaria…jk lol

  19. ~DaughterOfEve~ says:

    yay! an excuse to go to France!! hopefully these are somewhat accurate!

  20. ~Lava~ says:

    I am pretty sure I will be seeing it opening night (in US). I told my friends that we were going to celebrate my last day of ungrad classes (not the finals but close) by seeing it.

  21. Tawariell says:

    J'aime parler en francais aussi! Je viendrai en Europe alors, j'espere que je peux le voir en France (ou Angleterre…)!

    I'm going to take my sister to see it in December, so I'm hoping to go at least three times to see it in theatres (I hope it's a good adaption!!)

    It is rather confusing that they are releasing it in non-english speaking countries first…

  22. campgirl says:

    I can understand that FK 🙂 no worries

    Wouldn't it be just AMAZING to get to go to the world premiere?!?!?! *sighs wistfully*

  23. Lutra's Pearl says:

    I will be seeing it opening night too!!! We already have a group of people! Keep the story of Aslan alive!

  24. Why is it coming out sooner in other places? I am sooooooooooo excited!

  25. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    I would think that the U.S. and the U.K., as well as Canada, Australia, and NZ would be the biggest customers- why is it released there last? Kinda weird!
    Guys, if I were you, I wouldn't go to France just to see VotDT two days earlier than you would in the U.K. or the U.S.
    Why does no one feel sorry for the Argentinians? They have to wait till January 6, 2011!
    Okay, seriously, my family and I might travel to Europe in May and if the movie is released them I will go see it! The only disadvantage will be the foreign language subtitles but that's nothing!

  26. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    FK, that's all right. Is your little birdy reliable? Because I might just come to London if it is.

  27. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    It's been coming out in 2010 ever since 2009.

  28. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    WHAT are you saying? Although one of my friends believes that I can read French I can't!

  29. ellz_bellz says:

    I'm willing to put money on that the world premiere will be at Warner Brothers Movie World, in Australia. They had a huge premiere of Harry Potter 6 there.

  30. emma says:

    I so agree!! That would be much much easier to attend then I don't want to miss out on the world premiere if it's in London! Anyway WBMW is not even an hour away and I go there pretty regularly probably even working there some time this year so I would LOOVE it if they held it there! That'd be amazing 🙂 But knowing you know who they probably wont haha 🙁

  31. redeemedqueen says:

    oooh! that would be sooo fun…I should do that this time!!!

  32. Claire-ayes says:

    Yeay – Dates!!! I know we've known them, pretty much, for a while, but still, Yeay – Dates!!

  33. dutch-narniafan says:

    I know, that really was too too cruel. They've made us happy now though

  34. Starlily says:

    Hahahaha! Can you picture all these people from other countries going to Bulgaria just to see the movie? That would be so funny.

  35. QStheG says:

    And what about Russia??

  36. NarniaWarrior says:

    Who cares where and when…just hurry up already!!! Pretty awesome about James McAvoy…

  37. adamie says:

    Belgium -> december 8!!!!! shame that I'm in my exams then, but still.
    those from the USA who want to see it are welcome at my house!

  38. Shy Galadriel says:

    I really seriously doubt it will be released in non-English-speaking countries first, it makes no sense.
    For those who can’t read French:
    Long Live King Skandar said “I can’t speak French”
    Narnian Resident said, “you DO speak French! Lol you’re funny! I love French so much.”
    And Tawariell said, “I love speaking French as well! Hey, I’m coming to Europe, I hope that I can see it in France (or England…)!

  39. andr7450 says:

    What about Canada?

  40. Emmanuelle says:

    Haha ! I live in France and… Yes I feel lucky 😀
    315 days for you, 313 days for me.

    Vous êtes fâchés ? You're welcome at my house !

  41. NarniaNerd says:

    I have friends who live in Bulgaria! That would be funny if it did come out in May there.

  42. Definitely, I am going to Bulgaria. Funny! The airplanes would be crowded, if that was really the date it came out to Bulgaria from 1 to 2 weeks from May 7.

  43. skandarLover45 says:


  44. martin the warrior says:

    that would be awesome if i could fly to bugaria and see it ther! but i doubt that it is coming out may 7, 2010

  45. freya says:

    Same here, although it's the week after finals for me. I have to start work that week. *sigh* Ah, well, I've heard that patience is a virtue…

  46. King Skandar the Just says:

    Yay! come soon!!! It would be awesome to go to the world premiere!

  47. I hope to go see the first showing on opening night! Can I buy tickets yet?

  48. Nick1999 says:

    At least we in the UK are getting it the same time as most not 4 month later like PC.

  49. Ruth says:

    argh!what a long wait.Too bad i don't live in bulgaria.

  50. always narnian says:

    O it's still coming out in Decmber 🙁 haha sounds good though!!!! Yahoo

  51. narniafan4ever ♥ says:

    haha….yep. "…trials worketh patience…" ~Romans 5:3~ 😀

  52. William says:

    I can not wait for the first trailer of VDT to come out!!

  53. NarniaFreak says:

    I think they should move the date to Dec. 9. It would be the anniversary of LWW and my birthday!! LOL 🙂

  54. NarniaHannah♥(used to be celtic13 and LucyReepicheep4♥) says:

    If it comes out in Bulgaria on May 7th, I'm going to convince my parents that as a late birthday present(my b-day is April 1st) they should but me a plane ticket to Bulgaria.
    Before I even start I know that battle is lost. 🙁

  55. Puddleglum says:

    Before planning your itinerary for a trip overseas better make sure that you hone your skills in Bulgaian. Or hope they have english sub-titles.

  56. Griffle says:

    This is news!? Wow…

  57. Really? Your pretty luccky.

  58. Wait hasen't this already been anounced?
