Soundtrack Cover-Art!

As we reported on Tuesday, David Arnold’s score for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is now available for pre-order on  They have now added an image of the potential cover-art, which shows a majestic Aslan looking out through a curtain of snowflakes.  Unfortunately we’re still waiting to hear the titles of the tracks on the CD.

You can preorder the soundtrack here. It’s currently $10.99 in the US.

Thanks to A_Narnian_Ship and Aslan’s Meadow for the heads up.

    This is such a beautiful picture! I absolutely love that Aslan is front and center. I can't wait to hear the music.

    • Starlily says:

      You took the words right out of my mouth! It's a lovely picture of Aslan. I've never associated VDT with snowflakes, and I'm a little bugged that they're emphasizing Christmas when it always seemed more of a summer movie to me (LWW and SC are more suited to Christmas), but I still love the picture. And I agree with Eustace that I like the originality of it. Very nice. 🙂

      • Queen Su says:

        I know what you mean about the snowflakes…you'd think they would have done that for LWW. I still love how they did it though.

      • High Queene Shelly Belly says:

        I think its mean to be stars- hence the blurry edges on the white spots-

      • ibart9 says:

        good emphasis on aslan, but the snow is really random (???)

  2. Eustace says:

    That is such a orignal cover and so not like the others. I like it.

    • NarniaLuver4Ever says:

      I know! I like how its focuses on just one thing as opposed to a ton of little pictures collaged together!!!

  3. Lylanarniafan says:

    Wow esto se ve impresionante!!
    podemos ver la más grande de ASLAN

    • Nick says:

      Esperemos que se hace más hincapié en el rey Aslan en esta película. Creo que ha estado un poco ausente de las dos anteriores.(Es decir, Él está ahí, pero parece ser un buen aliado, y no necesariamente el gran rey)

      Hopefully there will be more emphasis on Aslan as the King in this movie. I think that has been missing from the previous two. (that is, he is there, but seems to be a good ally, and not necessarily the great king)

      • Nick says:

        Lo siento por mi español malo. Estoy aprendiendo.

      • andres says:

        hola alguien sabe las fechas de estreno a nivel internacional de esta pelicula,especialmente en venezuela, de verdad la espero con ansias

        hi somebody knows the international realeases dates of this movie,especially in venezuela, really i anticipate most

      • Aslan's Meadow says:

        Hola, no estoy seguro acerca de la fecha de lanzamiento, pero debemos conseguir esos pronto. Yo no estaba muy contento con Aslan es el único en el frente, pero tal vez Nick; es lo correcto. Narnia es sólo allí, porque de Aslan. Tal vez mi forma de pensar va a cambiar?

      • Manuel says:

        Totally agree with Nick (and your spanish is excellent, by the way).

  4. Queen Elizabeth says:

    I am totally going to paint this!!!!

  5. Daniel says:

    Wow! Wonderful art!

  6. Aslan's Meadow says:

    Wow, a lot of people like it? Didn't see that coming.
    I personally am quite dissapointed in it. It is a LWW cover is I ever saw one. Snow? Really? because snow has a 5 minute screen time doesn't mean it should be on the cover. I do love Aslan, but he's been on it like that before. I was really hoping for something a little more modern, darker/bolder colors. Some more images. Plus the flurry/foggy look just isn't the best.

    Don't get me wrong, I do like the cover (kinda) but I was hoping for something way better. Anyone else agree?

    • WarriorOfNarnia says:

      Yup! I agree. Maybe the Dawn Treader or Edmund, Eustace, Lucy and Caspian doing…something. I soon as I saw it I thought, "LWW!" Be more original!!

    • KnightofNarnia says:

      Did you ever consider that those might be stars, not snowflakes? I personally think that they are stars, since snow does not have anything to do with the Voyage of the Dawn Tread.

      • Aslan's Meadow says:

        It could be stars, bt like most of the people commenting, If it's stars, it gives the impression of snow. I wish it were stars, but it's made in a way to look like a flurry. OH! If they wanted to do stars, they should have made the backround a deep midnight black, and Aslan a vibrant gold with stars AROUND ASlan and not in front of him. THAT would be awsome!!!

      • Fire Fairy says:

        Now that I look back, it does look like stars… Maybe we just all assumed it was snow because we're used to seeing the whole Aslan with snow thing. I like the idea of stars better. Still, I do like the cover art.

    • KnightofNarnia says:

      Did you ever consider that those might be stars, not snowflakes? I personally think that they are stars, since snow does not have anything to do with the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

    • narnian resident says:

      yeah, it doesnt really make sense at all. what i had imagined was a beautiful shot of the Dawn Treader and Aslan like behind it or to the side. now that would be great! it would look so amazing to have just those two images on it, and with the ocean of course, because those are the two most important images of this story.

      • Manuel says:

        I think it´s a good idea to center the design in Aslan, because a cd cover is too small to show the Dawn Treader. The book cover or the theatrical poster are better places to show more images combined.

        And the snowflakes/stars are perfect! If you are a christian, the stars are the symbol of the greatness of Aslan; if not, they are just the remind of a beautiful scene of the movie.

  7. Ugly Pig says:

    It's a nice looking cover, IMO, just not very relevant for VoDT.

  8. MinotaurforAslan says:

    This would have been a great cover for LWW. It makes no sense as a cover for VDT.

  9. Sir Jack says:

    *want this CD!!!!!!!!!!!!! SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BADLY!!*

  10. DragonGirl28 says:

    Beautiful picture, but what does snow have to do with VDT? Seriously? I do like it though…very pretty.

  11. dramaticalmama says:

    Aslan looks so real … I wish I could meet a lion.

  12. Cynical Narnia Fanboy says:

    Awesome! VDT is all about Aslan-especially at the end-more so than the other books, so that's a fitting cover…I wonder if the movie cover will be similar?

    • Antarctic says:

      Hmm.. Idk about that, I always thought "The Magician's Nephew" or "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe" were more centered around Aslan. Although He plays a large part in "Voyage of the Dawn Treader", as He does in all the other books, I still think this cover is more suitable for LWW or MN. That's just me, though. 🙂

  13. narnia fan 7 says:

    That look like LWW art not VDT.

  14. dramaticalmama says:

    Goodbye, lucy and edmund! I can't believe you're not coming back! I'll miss you two so damn much!

  15. ~queenSUSAN~ says:

    absolutely GORGEOUS cover art BUT….this is a sea adventure, not a Christmas musical! lol

    • Duffleglum says:

      Seriously, the posters for this movie are way better than PC and LWW…

      But who was the *genius* that got the job of making THIS???
      Oh how I hate it. they know better ;D

  16. narnian at heart says:

    ok iloveit! I think it really fits in with VDT. imean the whole point of this voyage is to stop the white witch from coming back! She has to do ALOT with snow right??? So thts were the snow all fits in with this! Its greatILOVEIT!;D

    • narnian resident says:

      …….um, i just have to say, the point of this voyage is not to stop the white witch. sorry, but i just had to say that! because thats not true, she's just apparently in there at some moment, but they go on this voyage to find the seven lords. im sorry! i'm just too much of a die-heart fan to let it by 😛

      • StevoBaggins says:

        Not sure if I'm interpreting narnian at heart right, but I think I detected some sarcasm with the mention of the White Witch. 🙂

  17. Edson07bs says:

    This is a good art. The second official poster dissapointed me, but this cover to the soundtrack is amazing, Aslan looks majestic.

  18. Jill says:


  19. Louloudi the Centaur says:

    Even though the snow is beautiful, I was also hoping for a Dawn Treader in the background. But it is the music that counts.

  20. Amazingly beautiful cover! My only objection is that he looks disturbingly like Jadis here.

  21. glumPuddle says:

    Weird. Looks just like the shot of the White Witch in the ice in the PC movie. Only…Aslan.

    • Griffle says:

      Right, what's up with the snow? I'm pretty sure this is just temp art though. It has to be.

    • Starlily says:

      I'm beginning to wonder how much snow will be in this movie, just to coincide with Christmas. In the book there's zero snow, obviously, but apparently in the movie Lucy gets a little blizzard. There's also snowy mountains in the trailer. I just hope there isn't too much wintry stuff in the movie; I still want this to be a summer-themed adventure.

  22. valiant says:

    Are they rereleasing the LWW soundtrack? That looks pretty interesting….

    Oh wait, no, its the VDT soundtrack…with snow..:/

    It doesn't reflect the movie at all. I thought it would be similar to the posters. It doesn't have the DT or anthing that should reflect the movie. Yes Aslan is there, and I'm happy about that, however he should be featured in every movie/soundtrack cover really. There needs to be elements that distinguish each soundtrack.

    If I didn't know any better, I would have thought that they are rereleasing the LWW soundtrack with new cover art.

    • valiant says:

      I know its just soundtrack cover art, and I should really care. But its not justthe cover art I care about. I think this just continues the pattern of weird posters and marketing material that has been released.

  23. Queen Susan the Gentle says:

    This is really neat. I hope the music is as good as the first two!

  24. narnian resident says:

    this is gorgeous! i just love how Aslan is only on it 🙂
    ….but, i dont really get the snowflakes. why didnt they relate it to VDT? why didnt they have an ocean theme? that doesnt really make sense.
    oh well, its looks beautiful none the less!!

  25. Josh says:

    I think those are stars, not snowflakes.

    Stars make sense because they are sailing to the end of the world in the movie and because of Lilliandil.

  26. Loyal Narnian says:

    Remember in the VDT trailer Lucy is with the book of spells at the Magician's house and it is snowing? Maybe it snows in the room right before Aslan shows up or something.

  27. Winged says:

    A beautiful cover,but I was hoping for the DT to be featured. We've already seen Aslan like this on the LWW cover.

  28. StevoBaggins says:

    Looking at the picture again after reading the comments, I agree with some comments. I think those are stars. Stars would make much more sense for VDT, and it also gives an idea of Aslan watching over and being the ultimate guide for the voyage. I like that idea.

  29. Embrace says:

    Aslan was the one who got rid of all the snow in the first one remember… ?
    It´s good anyway because we just got our first snow here today as a funny coincidence! 🙂

  30. Bookwyrm says:

    Maybe it's water bubbles. Caspian's temptation is he's tempted to kill Aslan in revenge for his parents' deaths. So he's trying to drown Aslan. By running him over with the DT.

    • elizabeth says:

      i thought it was miraz that killed his father( it didn't say anyhting bout the mom) why would he kill aslan, he belives in aslan right? he said so in the last movie

    • Antarctic says:

      I'm positive Caspian NEVER wanted to kill Aslan. However, he DID want to kill Miraz (which he did in PC) but NEVER Aslan.

  31. dramaticalmama says:

    48 days … oh I can't wait!

  32. Pepper Darcy says:

    squee! What a beautiful picture. This movie just gets better and better! 😀

  33. narnian1 says:

    I'll be buying the soundtrack, as I've bought the other two- but I don't like the cover art for this movie. I was hoping for something simple with the Dawn Treader on it, as it should have been.

    At least it's not crowded like most posters.

  34. TumnusTheBrave says:

    This soundtrack cover looks like it was made for LWW. But i still like it. it can go with VDT.

  35. Griffle says:

    That's….weird. Would've preferred the theatrical poster artwork actually, and I'm not a big fan of that.

  36. Sonny says:

    Actually, I think it looks more like water spray; It looks to me as if Aslan has just burst through the water and the droplets are flying toward the "camera." I will say that's what it is and be happy. 🙂

  37. Annabeth says:


  38. aragorn2 says:

    It does look nice but I wish it had the Dawn Treader or something uniquely from the VDT, this cover would have been better for the LWW

  39. Omac the centaur says:

    Awesome. 🙂

  40. Twinimage says:

    Come on, let's stop with the snow already. Narnia does not = snow. Snow does not = Narnia. Let's get past LWW please.
    Anyway, it's nice that they're using Aslan's face, but you'd think they'd show the Dawn Treader or something. *shrugs* oh well. No biggie. Though, the whole snow thing is becoming annoying.

  41. Ozma says:

    This is going to be a 3-D movie, Snow can look really cool in 3-D. It pops off the screen, and you think it will hit you.

  42. QueenLucy12 says:

    I think it looks really great! hopefully if anything what yall are saying looks like snow, is actually stars.

  43. sachin says:


  44. pselpevensie says:

    IT LOOKS SOOOO COOL!!!!!!!! not sure about the snow tho…

  45. Lylanarniafan says:

    You are rigth Aslan is the great King of Narnia,
    and it's the most important character
    and your spanish is very good…:)

  46. QueenLucytheValient says:

    it's great I am soooo happy that Aslan is really get a lot of focus, and looks way better in this picture.

  47. Movie Aristotle says:

    Boy, they are really pushing this snow theme too far.

  48. Peepicheep says:

    What's so awesome about a picture of Aslan?

    • Edson07bs says:

      It's obvious that you are not a real fan!!!

      • Bookwyrm says:

        And it's obvious you're being obnoxious. If you would bother to read over the comments, you would see not everyone is wowed over this artwork. And I would tend to agree with Peepicheep.

  49. Reepicheep says:

    Really nice cover, but to me it looks like the Legend of the Guardians poster with Aslan there instead of Soren.

  50. Savber100 says:

    This cover better not be a sign of what's to come. 😛

  51. aussie_lucy says:

    It's a nice picture although the snow looks more appropriate for The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe movie.

  52. always narnian says:

    It's pretty cool, but what's with the snow? also, his eyes look sorta weird!

  53. High Queen of Narnia says:

    Hey guys, remember this is a POTENTIAL cover for the CD!

  54. Narnian Meerkat says:

    Awwwwww. . .I like it. It looks so classic. Like Narnia really is. . . *wonderous expression*

  55. Isn't it amazing how true Narnians agree. Yeah, a very cool cover. But it's simple: Snow = LWW. Stars = VDT. So in Aslan's Name, why don't the admen & artists get it? Don't they read, don't they respect, the stories? They need to get a faun or few talking animals for advisors.

    Likewise: Why is Tilda/Jadis still hanging around? (see Spanish poster). She gets to rock in LWW & MN, but is Swinton under some huge contract that she has to get her mug in every flic?

    If I wasn't so absolutely thankful & thrilled that Clive's blessed fantasies are hitting the big screen, I'd be more mifted. But as it is, no biggie, they're trying… Sail on, Dawn Treader!

  56. Antarctic says:

    VoDT+Snow= o.O

    I've always viewed VoDT as a summer adventure film. I think there was enough snow in LWW. I love Aslan, but I think they should insert the Dawn Treader somewhere, maybe in a corner, along with some of the characters instead of wasting all of the margins with misplaced snow.

    If that was a book/music album/movie cover for LWW, I'd say right on, but it just doesn't suit VoDT.

  57. aleyson says:

    so its very pretty and i'm excited the music will be released soon but what is with the snowflakes? snow has nothing to do with VDT; its as if they realised pushing the summer release of PC was such a flop and they now want to push the Christmas release really hard and try to harken back to the success of LWW. quite ridiculous really.

  58. Legolas Forever ;) says:

    That is BEAUTIFUL i love it cant wait 🙂
