    It does seem like they changed a few things but it looks like it will still be very good.

    • Manuel says:

      I agree.

    • Samuel the Magnificent says:

      Yeah. I noticed they mixed up the order of the islands too. Ramandu's island was the last island they came too, but here it's the second to last. Also I noticed that lucy fights in the battle. Awesome! I loved it when susan fought in Prince Caspian.

  3. Evan Morgan says:

    Lilinadil looks amazing! Love the way she glows!

  4. NarnianHarper says:

    Most of this is the same footage we've seen the trailers, just put in chronological form. There is a brief glimpse of the transformation of the dragon back to Eustace, and a scene of the conflict between Edmund and Caspian from Goldwater island. It all really looks good!

  5. Pepper Darcy says:

    I am sooooo sooooo SO loving the seven swords plot! It looks amazing! 😀

    • always narnian says:

      it seems to me like they are copying LOTR way too much…this is Narnia people, not Middle Earth….glowing swords! This is ridiculous!

      • aragorn2 says:

        It isn't the glowing that is the problem, how else would you show magic courseing through them without a glow or something like that. The real problem is the emphasis on it, especially since it isn't from the book and it is rather contrary.

      • Karen says:

        I agree, it better be a darn good movie to make up for changing the story. *sigh*

      • emijoy says:

        hehe with you on that

    • me too!!!!! this is SO amazing!

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        oh good, Lib! I was sooo worry I was being wicked because I loved the seven swords plot. When Lord Bern said 'given by Aslan to protect…' I was HOOKED on that plot!! 🙂 *gasp* I can't wait!

        Hey, Always, i wanted to tell ya, I'm getting ready to work on the picture I promised you!! 🙂 SOOO excited to do it. I just needed to get in my head what I wanted to do and to get some other pics for friends done 🙂

        In two weeks, just about now, we'll probably be sitting in a theater giggling to death from excitement! I can't believe it's almost here!! HORRAY! 😀

      • aragorn2 says:

        Not to be rude but the idea of Aslan giving Telmarines who hated his people and didn't even believe in him is really dumb

    • glumPuddle says:

      To be honest, it is puzzling to me how a fan could love the book and be excited about the seven swords plot. From all appearances, it could not be more contrary to what the book is about. It seems to turn VDT into a save-the-world survival story, which is fundamentally different from what he book is. The book is a selfless and noble quest to right what was wronged out of a sense of personal responsibility.

      • Doug says:

        Yeah, I'm with you, Glum. But then again, I've pretty much given up on the hope that they will ever just trust the plots that CS Lewis wrote without trying to "Hollywoodize" the script. I guess the feeling with Walden is that if you are going to spend millions of dollars to make a movie, then it has to follow a standard Hollywood plot formula if it is going to be successful. I just wish that they would realize that there is a reason why the Narnia books have been successful for over 50 years, and it's not because Lewis needed a script doctor to dumb down the plot.

      • Moonwood says:

        I agree with aragorn2 and puddlglum–I think some people are a lot more exited about the movie, than the book being made into a movie…

      • Noogah says:

        You know glumPuddle, you couldn't have picked out a better username. I'm really tired of your pessimistic attitude, and how you try to pass along your opinions as facts. VOTD isn't a book about saving the world, but isn't about the longing of one's true home or righting wrongs and blah blah.

        Yes, those elements are there, but they aren't what the book is focused around. There are many potential themes in the book. Reepicheep's whole "longing for his home" and the character inner conflict arcs are both short. I'm not ecstatic about the seven swords thing either, but I'll give the movie makers some room to breathe as long as they include most of the other important stuff, and most reviews will have me believe they will.

        Can you do nothing but gripe and nit-pick? Lighten up.

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        Um, Noogah, it's okay if that's what Glumpuddle believes about VotDT. He's not nitpicking at me. I didn't feel like he was being rude. He expressed his opposite opinion *very* considerately. And he didn't offend me.

        It's sorta hard, you know, to tell someone to *not* be pessimistic by nature when that's the way they were made. Again, Glumpuddle didn't offend me. I'm glad he has opinions just like you have one and I have one. It's not like it's Scripture and absolute (black and white). It's just a story, and a story isn't worth slaying eachother over or fighting about.

        I'd like to think that a lot of people, especially mods like Glumpuddle could have a very kind debate on book verses movie and still keep their cool. So, he's just saying what he thinks 🙂

        Don't worry, Glumpuddle, ya didn't offend me ;D I respect your differing opinion just as much as I respect the others on this site 🙂

    • Mayor Wilkins says:

      I think we all need to remember that films and books are different things.
      Things that work in the book will not necessarily translate well onto film.
      I hate to say it, but there will be changes to every book adaptation you will ever see. The credits say "BASED ON the book by C.S. Lewis" for a reason.

      I will say it again, as I've been typing this in for weeks.
      In order to make a successful fantasy film today, you almost certainly need an evil of some kind to overcome. Audiences today love Good Vs. Evil. One of the major criticisms I heard from "Prince Caspian" was, compared to the White Witch in the first film, the Telmarines were a bit weak in the villains department. I personally loved Sergio as Miraz, but I can still see where this criticism is coming from. If the aim is to improve on "Caspian," then they needed to incorporate a stronger villain. And it had to be one that was mystical in nature.

      Thus, they took something only slightly described in the book (The Dark Island) and took some artistic license with it. They created an elemental force of evil (The Green Mist–Lewis does mention a mist in the Dark Island chapter, actually), which symbolizes the temptations our heroes have to learn about and overcome on their journey of discovery. The Green Mist is a great idea because it's not actually a new character…it's an abstract idea, merely a symbol of temptation. It's eerie, it's terrifying, and it's perfect for Dark Island. Finally, they took some artistic license with Aslan's Table and the seven swords, which will be used in the film to overcome the spell causing the lords at the table to sleep.

      The expansion of Dark Island and the quest of the seven swords is just a bit of glue to help piece together the journey for the movie audience. I'm in no way calling the general audience unintelligent. But if you're making a theatrical movie, there has to be SOMETHING that makes the story a cohesive whole. And that something has to be easily understood by everyone, not just book fans like us.

      In the book, readers have the luxury of reading chapter by chapter and taking each island visit as its own little episode. That works in print because there are definite breaks (chapters) between each one. It would NOT work on film. There has to be one thread tying it all together. The inclusion of gathering some swords works. And in my opinion, it is not a dramatic change. Actually, it seems like a relatively small addition. I think it will do its job and do it well.

      Yes, it is VERY possible to love both the book and the movie at the same time. Why? Because the book and the film are two different things. Besides, the core values of the book are very much at play in the movie. Courage, nobility, discovery…. and of course the Christian themes in Lewis's work. It is all there if you allow yourself to look for it.

      Actually, it's surprising to me how a fan of these books could not be excited by this movie. I think, as purists, some of us get a little carried away with our narrow viewpoints. The beauty of the Narnia books is that they call on your imagination to visualize what is happening. Well….. these movies are a combination of many Narnia fans' imaginations into one whole. I think these films are a beautiful tribute to that wonderful quality of Lewis's work. Several Narnia lovers coming together to celebrate the brilliance of imagination in the novels. A Narnia fan who picks apart every little minute change from the text is quite honestly doing themselves a disservice because they are missing the point. Instead, I think we should all try to celebrate Narnia and all its brilliance by watching the story come to life. 😉

      We've all read Narnia. Now let's see how other people, other Narnia fans, interpreted the same thing. Now that is magical. 😀

      Cheers! 😉

      • Litus says:

        I really believe on what you say. You nailed it! Glum you should read it.

      • Reepicheep, Knight of Narnia says:

        Thanks, Mayor Wilkins, that's exactly what I've been thinking ever since PC came out, but you said it way better than I could. Ditto on everything.

      • Caspian XI says:

        Aslan's mane, I totally agree! 😀 Why can't anyone understand this?!

      • Samuel the Magnificent says:

        You have just perfectly explained what I think.

      • Daniel James says:

        That was a lovely explanation! You just took all the thoughts from my head and wrote (er, typed) them quite eloquently. Bravo!
        ~Is it just me, or did I just sound English? By jove, I believe I did!

    • Pepper Darcy says:

      *shrugs* that's okay… I knew when i said that I'd get some looks 😉 And I respect all of your guy's opinions of course 😀

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        I do commend you guys for expressing your opinions without being nasty. That's wonderful!! 😀

      • Mayor Wilkins says:

        You're very welcome. 😉
        I see no need to be nasty to fellow Narnia fans. 😀
        But I do have strong opinions, and I tried to express them in as peaceful a way as I could.
        Cheers, everyone! 😉

      • Pepper Darcy says:

        yeah! 😀 And by 'respect' I mean I respect Glumpuddle's opinon just as much as yours! 🙂 So you're good, Glumpuddle! 😀

  6. The Archenlander says:

    mine stopped loading at 1:24….lol….maybe its someone telling me to stop watching it and wait for the movie 🙂

  7. Rhys says:

    Dragon Transformation looks good!

  8. always narnian says:

    No…..I already no too much!!!!!!! 🙂

  9. Queen Elizabeth says:

    I love Ben and Skandar, but did anyone else think thier little fight on Goldwater island is a little cheesy? I still love it 😀

    • LOTRFREAK says:

      it was in the book.

    • Pepper Darcy says:

      I saw that and thought… great another Caspian/Peter deal… then I thought, oh yeah, duh! It WAS in the book! And Ed's more likely to get caught in a fight than Peter anyways, bookwise 😉

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        I know it was in the book. But the way they constructed it in the film just made me giggle. I love how they bring out Ed's rebellious side just a little. And I like the conflict of them both thinking they should be the rightful kinhg. I honestly think Ed is the rightful king because he was the first one crowned. Yet Caspian actually lives his whole life in Narnia and can rule it fairly.

    • Flute player says:

      Well, in the book, it was more of Caspian who was like, "Ooooh, shiny, gold!" and Edmund was like, "You idio Caspian, what do you think you're doing? And anyway, that gold's mine," and Caspian's like, "Oh, really, Edmund? You wanna go? Huh? Huh? You wanna go?"
      Well, OK, technically:
      "The King who owned this island," said Caspian…"Would soon be the riches of all the Kings of the world. I claim this land forever as Narnian possession…."
      "Who are you talking to?" said Edmund, "I'm no subject of yours…you are under allegience to the High King my brother."
      "So it has come to that, King Edmund, has it?" said Caspian, laying his hand on his sword hilt"
      OK, so they got the whole Caspian pulling out the sword and starting the actual threat of violence, but really, it was Caspian who wanted the gold to begin with, Ed just got defensive.

      • Queen Elizabeth says:

        Thank you Flute player… for those um.. words of wisdom? Although I've read the book twice and know what happenes. I was just voiceing my observations.

      • FL says:

        LOL Flute Player I love the way you put it at first. Anyway yeah, I'm kinda 'eh' when I saw that scene bit cos yeah, Caspian should've been the one starting the whole gold fight. But he looks just as selfish/ambitious as Ed from the clip so I'm good 😀

      • THANK YOU, FLUTE PLAYER!!! I'm really ticked off that they changed that. It showed how Edmund the Power Seeker (LWW) changed into Edmund the Just. I was really mad when people starting to say that Death Water was both their temptation when it was just Caspian's. Now their changing it to Ed. Grrrr… Though what I love about Edmund is that he questions some authority and has a little dash of rebellion.

  12. Hwin says:

    I don't dare to click… =P

  13. Caspian XI says:

    THIS IS SOOOOOOOOOOOO AWESOME!!!!!!!! 😀 😀 😀 I CAN'T wait for this movie!!! 😀

  14. Queen Elizabeth says:

    THERE ARE NOT REALLY ANY SPOILERS. All it does is tell what islands they go to. And show footage we've already seen, for the most part.

  15. REDROBINS007 says:

    "Edmunds temptation is to be king again…" wow this is sort of the same as Peter in Prince Caspian what are these people thinking I know Darkwater Island is where the enchanted pool can drive a person mad but its still like following Peters desire to be king again from Prince Caspian

  16. aslan4ever says:

    so bautiful…

  17. Kotarki says:

    That narrator really gets on my nerves, not every island, especially Ramandu's is the most dangerous location on the journey. I like that Skandar describes the battle as a tustle which is much better than a full out battle. Aslan giving the swords their power makes sense, giving Miraz even more reason to banish the lords, though it is a little cheesy. Edmund's little speel about becoming the most powerful person in the world was delivered very awkwardly, I would think they could find a different way to allow the audience to realize this. I wonder if those parts of the map that it cuts to will be in the movie or just for the featurette. The way Eustace is undragoned is not nearly as bad as they could have made it. A lot of good footage, I'm excited to see where it goes.

    • Flute player says:

      Yeah, I hope they don't do the whole map thing, that would be kind of lame, and a bit distracting from the story. It would make it seem less "real" I think.

      • Princess Lucy says:

        maybe the map is used at the begginig of the film where the captain drinian i think shows them the islands….its in the book 🙂

      • Eltis says:

        The Map is created by the magician to show everywhere they've been in the book I'm thinking it'll only be in one scene.

  18. A pretty nice shot of the Kings on that wall!

  19. Hey I just saw a moviephone advertisement on a sidebar here.
    "New movies this holiday" or something. One of the snowglobes had a picture of Aslan, VDT version, the one where he's looking through snow!

  20. blueRain says:

    I tried to watch it and it froze. I'm actually kind of glad now because I realized that I want to be surprised when I see it. I read and watched way too many spoilers for PC and that kind of ruined it for me. Does that makes sense? lol.

  21. dinode says:

    Is it just me, or is Dragon Eustace's skin going to be burned off? It could work. Maybe.

    • Princess Lucy says:

      good thinking 🙂

    • Samuel the Magnificent says:

      I think it'll work. The symbolism behind eustace's undragoning was that aslan (Jesus) is the only person that can set us free from our sins which can turn us into a monster figuratively. And sometimes the process can be painful. The fire works just as well if not better.

    • Fire Fairy says:

      It definitely makes it work well on screen without making it really graphic. If you think about it, they could have taken this scene and made it really graphic, since Aslan tears off Eustace's skin and all that. I really think I'll like this.

  22. I loved it! The new scenes are amazing, and the plot is awesome. The Goldwater situation looks really good, can't wait to watch it!! Nice to see Laura Brent finally too! By the way, I wonder why they don't tell us her name instead of keep saying "Ramandu's Daughter"? And why would they say that Ramandu's Island had evil forces? But anyway, my impatience just increased by 500%. ^_^

  23. narnian resident says:

    haha! "Click here, if ye dare", thats funny 😀
    great video. saw it yesterday when someone commented with the link in the other update with the 7 smaller clips. i really love it, how it explains the journey to allow us to get a better idea of the story.

  24. sirsimon says:

    it looks set to be the best out of the series so far, it doesn't look that different from the book, I prefer the book to be original material, while the film is simply Apted's intepretation of the material.

    I think we have been moaning for no reason, from this video, I have no reason to hate this, in fact I love it all, yes there were changes, but they are tiny.

    Plus I love the fact that the books heart is in it, how these events will help them fight their weaknesses, from greed, to tempetation to vanity, its all here.

    We will all end up enjoying the film anway, so hush hush with the moan moan lol

  25. pray aginst abortion! says:

    i LOVED it! Narnia is so great we have friends coming down from C.A. to see it!!!!

  26. Scarlet13 says:

    I cant believe that I clicked it and whatched it! I can't Wait to see it!!! its kindof weird when edmund is like "The Most powerful person in the world!" Oooo!

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      I know! That scene makes him look a little sinister. I don't like how they made his like that.

  27. lucyrocks17 says:

    Oh glory day!!!!!!!!!!!! It was wonderfully amazing cannot wait for the movie!

  28. TumnusTheBrave says:

    *SPOILERS* what would i do with out u NarniaWeb. Ive been following narniaweb for about 6 years now and i think this is a perfect time to thank the NarniaWeb crew

  29. StephanieTheFaithful says:

    Amazing, Epic, Narnia.

  30. TumnusTheBrave says:

    its kinda weird looking at lucy fighting face to face. same with susan with PC

    • Evan Morgan says:

      I don't think that it is weird at all. Lucy fought in PC against Nikkabrik and was willing to take on the whole entire Telmarine army by herself with her dagger.Makes sense she would actually fight like this in the movie. Susan fighting was a little weird, but I wasn't too weirded out by it.

      • Louloudi the Centaur says:

        Lucy actually FIGHTS in the Battle of Anvard with a bow and arrow. I prefer Lucy fighting over Susan, after all, Susan IS Queen Susan the Gentle, not Queen Susan the Fighter, considering she doesn't even fight in hers days of being Queen or going back to Narnia in Prince Caspian.

      • Evan Morgan says:

        Ah, yes. That also. Thank you for reminding me. Lucy's gonna kick some Lone Island butt(:

      • Fire Fairy says:

        Right on, Louloudi! It always bugged me that Lucy had to stay behind from the raid in PC when she was the one that was always fighting, and Susan was the one "like a grown-up lady" who stayed home from the fights. Go Queen Lucy the Valiant!!

  31. DanielmyBrother says:

    I'm getting so excited for this Voyage. May we have a fun voyage on the Dawn Treader!

  32. Queen Elizabeth says:

    I'm so excited to see Lucy finally get out there and kick some butt! lol Georgie is finally happy to do some more stunts too 🙂

  33. Starlily says:

    I'm loving the Goldwater scene with Edmund and Caspian. I think it'll be pretty good–kind of tense, like it should be. I also like Caspian a lot better with an English accent. It feels more natural. Eustace's transformation doesn't look like the book…but it might be an interesting adaptation, and could actually work.
    Laura Brent is very beautiful, but I think a blue glow detracts from her looks a little. 🙁 Hopefully when I see more of her she'll look better.

    Oh, and I love the Dufflepuds! 😀 They look quite funny, as they should. Just hope their CGI doesn't look too fake in the movie.

  34. motovin03 says:

    5 days to go!!! Narnia will once again conquer The Philippines! I'm so excited to see The Dawn Treader dock on Philippine shores! YAAAHHHHOOOOOOOOO!!! ;-D

    • simplyphilly says:

      My cousin told me that there's already a lot of merchandise there. She even has a VDT calendar.

  35. Queen Elizabeth says:

    Edmund looks so amazing! When he kills the sea monster in the end I'm going to stand up in the theater and be like "YES! YEEESSSS!!!!" no lie.

  36. decarus says:

    That was a lot of spoilers. I just don't know if i can be all in anymore. I just can't do it.

    • Queen Elizabeth says:

      What doyou mean? If you have read the book all of that info is already known.

      • decarus says:

        In the books? This film isn't anything like the books.

        I think i will like it better then PC just because PC is the better book so i was more annoyed by the damage they did to it in the film.

  37. King_Cor_the_Great says:

    Whoa!!! Anna Popplewell was interviewed? First Andrew now Anna? I wonder if Will is in any of the behind the scenes videos!

    • Mina says:

      I know. I was thrown off like wait what's Anna doing on the boat? Her background is the same one as Will P's and if you notice (based on the picture leaked already) Susan's Horn is gone. Funny, that they put Susan in the same spot as her disappearing Horn. Side note: I love her dress, I just can't get over it…she looks gorgeous in it. Also, I thought it was funny how the actress who plays RD (pardon me, I can't remember her name) randomly shows up. She's very pretty, and I think it's because you can see her face and not her "glow."

  38. Queen Elizabeth says:

    I miss Will. It's been forever!

  39. Queen Elizabeth says:

    HELP!!!! I want to start a blog about fantasy movies including Narnia of course. Any tips on getting started and how to make it interesting?

  40. NarnianAllTheWay says:

    I love the part with Edmund & Caspian! It was fantastic, exactly how I imagined it in the book. Can't wait for this movie EVEN MORE. 12 more days!

  41. FaunFan says:

    Wow. This should be amazing. I'm starting to not care about the discrepancies from the books and just enjoy watching a terrific movie! Those were awesome new clips, and yay, we finally heard from Skander!

    BTW, did anyone notice Ben's hesitation before saying, "Ramandu's daughter"? Ooh…. Call me a hopeless romantic if you will, but I think it's so cute!

  42. GlimGlum says:

    Looking good visually. 😀 We'll see how the fans and general audience respond in 11 days or so. Sail on VDT! 🙂

  43. Narnian Meerkat says:


  44. Queen Elizabeth says:

    It seems like Edmund has the most "issues" so to speak in the film.
    1) He get's in a fight with Caspian on the boat.
    2) Then he gets tempted with gold, and has another fight on goldwater island.
    3) Then he is temted by the green mist.
    4) And then he has a little quarrel with Caspian because he also finds Lilliandil attractive.
    I think he's just jealous. But he shouldn't be, he would do just fine on his own.

  45. Believer in His new name says:

    Wow! Looks like it will be amazing, can't wait till it comes out! Just hope they don't put too much "Lucy the Fighter" in it. A little too much of that with Susan ( Susan "the gentle") in the last film…

  46. Jazmine says:

    Why is Susan Is not in the film of narnia 3?

  47. FL says:

    OH GUYS!!! run don't walk to

    The second clip has some new footages!

    (I've reported this through Spy Report too)

    • FL says:

      ok sorry, the 3 clips are basically almost the same…you just need to watch the 2nd clip to see the new footages.

      • Princess Lucy says:

        thanxs FL…i seen quite a few new clips…wow…its gets more amazing by the minute….it sounds funny with the indian voices over the actors voice doesn't it…but its cute 🙂

  48. QueenSusanJ316 says:

    Where is the part on Susan? I am trying to avoid spoilers, but need a good shot of her dress for my lion party costume.

  49. PeterPan says:


  50. stars_daughter17 says:

    I am SO tempted to watch this and all the other videos that have been posted, but I did that last year with Prince Caspian and wasn't as surprised as I would have liked to have been. This year I have only watched the trailers for the Voyage of The Dawn Treader. Wheew! I can't wait till it comes out on the 10th!! 🙂

  51. Lucy Helen Ycul says:

    We get to see Anna!

  52. Narnian at Heart says:

    i love it! But why did Susan HAVE to get OLDER! i really dont understand the fact that when you getolder you have to leave! wow, would tht stink or wat!

  53. Narnian Forever says:

    Did anyone else notice that there wasn't much of Eustace the Dragon in there? Or am I missing something? To my memory, I didn't see him at all!

  54. HtTYD says:

    Hi Pepper Darcy.
    I was looking for some pictures of HtTYD and came across one of your little (long) segments about *ITHILWEN*, HICCUP and Heros!
    Just to let you Know I am a Christian and what you said about heros, it got me misty-eyed. That is so true.
    I am only 13 and i think you are very talented with your writing, and hope to become like you some day!
    I would love to give you my name and email, but just to be on the safe side, i left it out. is that okay?
