Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, Eustace and Reepcheep arrive on the shore at the end of Narnia. A huge wave of water stands in front of them and they walk towards it. Aslan’s shadow is seen on the beach. Lucy realizes that Aslan has joined them and is walking besides them. She turns…

Lucy: Aslan.
Aslan: You have returned for a reason. You have come far. Now your journey lies beyond.

Aslan roars and a hole forms in the wall of water.

Shot of the Dawn Treader sailing on the water. Shot of Drinian and the crew at the helm of the Dawn Treader. Edmund and Lucy stand on the deck soaking wet wearing blankets.

Caspian: Behold our castaways, King and Queen of Narnia.

The crew bows.

Lucy: Reepicheep!
Reepicheep: Your majesties!

Dragon Eustace opens an eye and a reflection of Aslan is seen in it. Dragon Eustace appears to be injured as he tries to rise from a sandy shore. Aslan stands not far away.

Shot of Cambridge. Shot of the Dawn Treader entering a bay. Shot of Dragon Eustace diving towards the water and then flying alongside the ship.

Eustace on the deck of the Dawn Treader, very unhappy.

Eustace: Where in the blazes am I?
Tavros the Minotaur: You’re on the Dawn Treader.

Eustace faints and the crew laughs.

Tavros: Was it something I said?


Edmund, Caspian, and Drinian stand looking out from the side of the ship. Edmund looks through a telescope.

Coriakin: There is the source of your trouble.

Shot of the White Witch in green mist.


Coriakin: It seeks to corrupt all goodness.

Green mist surrounds the Dawn Treader and the form of the White Witch swirls past Edmund.

Coriakin: It can steal the light from this world.

The Dawn Treader sails towards the Island of Green Mist. The Dawn Treader sails through a storm.


Edmund holds a sword that suddenly glows blue. Coriakin points at Edmund.

Coriakin: That sword you carry. It must be laid at Aslan’s Table.

Coriakin throws a map across a room. Islands are seen growing out of it.


Reepicheep: Aslan’s Country

Shot of Aslan standing on the shore. Shot of a rowboat rowing through a sea of white lilies.

Lucy: Do you really believe there’s such a place?
Reepicheep: We have nothing if not belief.

Water nymphs leap out of the water in front of the sailing Dawn Treader and dive back in.


Lucy stands in Coriakin’s library with snow falling all around her. She smiles.

Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, and Reepicheep stand at the edge of the ship looking down into the water. With a cry of excitement Reepicheep leaps into the water and lands next to Eustace.

Lilliandil walks along smiling.

Lilliandil: Travelers of Narnia. I am your guide.
Caspian: You are most beautiful.
Lilliandil: If it is a distraction for you, I can change forms.
Caspian and Edmund: No!

Caspian and Edmund look at each other. Lucy looks at them both and rolls her eyes.

Lucy enters into the Magician’s House through invisible doors that close behind her. Coriakin appears in front of his table and turns around.

Edmund, Susan, and Peter walk arm in arm through a lovely outdoor party. All smiling.

The Dawn Treader sailing through a gorgeous sunset.

Caspian looking stern.

Caspian: Now is the time to be strong. Never give in.

The sailors in the background cheer.

Coriakin stands in his garden with the crew of the Dawn Treader behind him. He throws something. Dufflepuds leap about.

Caspian, Drinian, and Edmund are walking through the streets of Narrowhaven with the people on the sides cheering. Rhince steps out from the crowd to speak to them.

Dragon Eustace flies very low to the water with the Dawn Treader behind him.

Someone (perhaps Caspian or Reepicheep?): No fear! No retreat!

Reepicheep swings around on a rope aboard the Dawn Treader. Dragon Eustace flies along carrying Reepicheep on his back. Reepicheep fights someone on the streets of Narrowhaven. Caspian fights a slaver in the Bell Tower. More fighting on the streets of Narrowhaven.

Shot of the Dawn Treader sailing through a storm. Shot of blue light shooting up from the seven swords and making a beam into the sky. Caspian and the crew shouting during a pitched battle with the sea serpent. Edmund holds the glowing blue sword out towards the serpent. The serpent dives towards him. Aslan roars on the beach.

    i promise that this is WAY too amazing for words;))))

    I've never met a dude with four legs who could romp like a lion while he was big costume. I've also never met a robot who could die from a knife stab. Have you? I'd love to hear about it.
    Besides. I don't approve of fanfiction. Get that straight.

  3. Caddoc says:

    I am still disappointed in them changing the plot a bit, but it looks like it will be a good movie. Also, did anyone else try to look for the arm ring on Dragon Eustace? I found that if you stop it at 1:52, you can see it on his right arm.

  4. Duffleglum says:

    Yes, that's a neat thing you noticed…

    Like the name, 'Not Of This World'… ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Hwin says:

    Haha, aw man, since I reacted as hysterically as I did to this trailer, I wonder how it will be for the REAL THING!!! One box of tissues for me when I see it in theatres!!!

  6. Nathan says:



  7. dinode says:

    Precisely Bookwyrm.

  8. Gem says:

    Yes, I've read everything I can get my hands on too, I was just hoping it's not true. How could they do that? That's one strike against Apted and everyone else.

  9. Skandar is my man says:

    Skandar still looks short to me. Georgie is almost taller than him. Lol

  10. Manticore says:

    You might be my new hero. ๐Ÿ˜€

  11. countessofthewesternwoods says:


  12. Maggie says:

    Great visuals, true, but they need to fire whoever put the trailer together – why are they STILL using the same dumb over-dramatic music from the last two movies' trailers? Didn't match up AT ALL.

  13. McGunn says:

    I totally get why people worry about the film producers making Jadis and TLGK the same, as they are not in the book, BUT I can see why the movie makers might want to let Tilda play both characters.

    First of all because of the audience of the movies who will recognize her and find it easier to "relate" to her.

    Also, if we think of the Chronicles as being an allegory to the Bible, even though Jesus won over Satan on the cross Satan is still active and will be until Jesus returns and shall end his power once and for all.

    I seriously don't think it would be a major problem if Tilda played TLGK as well, but we'll just have to wait and see, won't we?

  14. JadistarkilleR says:

    a flimsy comeback Bookwyrm, and thats all i will say about your statement, since others have already pounced you on that. and really, i would much rather flog the other dead horse– Jadis and LOTGK.

    you can have the entire 2 page spread in the book with big bold letters stating the simple fact that Jadis and LOTGK are different characters. and it still wouldnt change the fact that you have an essentially disjointed 7-book tale with a lot of characters per book, tied together by a few significant characters and one lion.

    that is not gonna work for a film franchise for obvious reasons.

    and one other thing, what is so revolting about the idea of Jadis and LOTGK being represented by the same person? arent they both a personification of evil? the devil to Aslan's God? so what's the problem if they simplified one step and just have Tilda Swinton as the embodiment of evil that keeps coming back into Narnia in various forms– White Witch, LOTGK– because thats what its all about isnt it? The struggle between good (God) versus evil (the Devil)? or are you so lost staring at the every vein in the leaf that you fail to see the forest?

  15. Princess Lucy says:

    we can just wait until the filmmakers make their decision and then we will have abetter idea what their plan is…now we have no idea and even them of how the villian in the silver chair will be portrayed….but it would be better if we get a different actress…i mean shes a different person who wants to take over narnia…just because the ww and the witch in SC have the same plan…it doesn't mean its the same person…different people often have the same plan…

  16. michalina says:

    WOW!!! I can't wait! I can't wait!

  17. Rilianluvr4evr says:

    LOL did anyone notice Susan's lipstick? reminds me of "she cared for nothing but parties and LIPSTICK and nylons" rofl

  18. Matt Wills says:

    Does it look to anyone else as though Aslan's shadow changes from something rather lamb-like into the form of a lion? Is this wishful thinking on my part?

  19. Edmund-is-hot says:

    Amazing trailer! The best one yet! ๐Ÿ˜€ And the screen shots are brilliant ๐Ÿ˜€ I'm a little concerned about the bit with Peter and Susan. Not because they're back, I love that fact, but I have a feeling that's Lucy in the middle. *SPOILER* I saw from another comment somewhere on here that apparently Lucy sees what would happen if she looked like Susan, so it might be Lucy linking arms with her brothers. I don't want it to be Lucy though. I want Susan to be in it aswell :/

  20. Annabeth says:

    i absolutely love the pic of lucy and ed hugging, it's so sweet. the casting directors did a great job choosing the Pevensies according to how much they looked alike. i also love the one of eustace and reep in the water, that was my favorite part in the trailer :). it's also good to see peter and susan again, i miss them already now that they can't be in narnia.
    i FINALLY saw the trailer on TV, for a second i just sat there after seeing it and then i just screamed i was so excited. :):)

  21. Queen Emily the Valiant says:

    its so amzing because it has Peter(william moseley) in it!!!hahaha love it

  22. Manuel says:

    Iยดm a bit worried about that scene too. In one hand GlimGlum is right, the trailers usually mix different scenes, and actually the images of the sky behind Eustace-dragon and Aslan are totally different in each shot.

    In the other hand, I remember somebody reported that in the film Eustaceยดs transformation happens in a flash of light, or am I wrong?

    I hope Mr. Apted consider the important symbolism of that sequence of the book.

  23. timo says:

    Or they could just do the other 4 books…

  24. Queen C The Gentle says:

    LOVE IT!!!! Susan looks so pretty and Peter looks so handsome! I'm looking forward to this movie. Can someone tell me why Lucy wants to use a bow+arrow now? It is b/c she wants to become strong like her sister? I haven't read the book so…

  25. SnowingRoses says:

    In Horse and His Boy, a character says Lucy, in other words, is amazing with a bow and arrow. Book wise, tho Susan was given that weapon, she prefered not to fight (they strayed a bit in the movie on that point) while Lucy was a warrior.
    Hope that helps! ๐Ÿ˜€

  26. SnowingRoses says:

    I never thought of that… you may be right! But I'm not sure if I'd like that idea or not- Lucy being the one in the middle.

  27. Mina says:

    If you pause I'm fairly certain that those are Susan's archery kit.

  28. Mina says:

    First off – I'm amazed by it all.

    Secondly – What's with the random shot of Su, Peter, and Edmund? It's all dramatic and then they pop up? =D So I've been thinking about an alternate theory of why the heck they're in the movie then as opposed to them being in the Magician's Book which is what everyone's implying. Perhaps, that that scene is the beginning of the movie, and that's real life not something Lucy sees. That would give the viewer a little bit of closure as what happened to the older Pevenise's. Their "fanasty" clothes would be part of what Lucy sees in the book. It would also account for why the song "High King and Queen of Narnia" comes up so early on the tracklist. Okay, just an alternate theory, because I couldn't figure out why Peter and Susan would have two scenes.
    Last thought on scene – Skandar looks so old and tall, Will looks slightly uncomfortable and awkward in the suit, and Anna looks stunning and gorgeous. I want that dress, and the first thing I noticed was that lipstick…after it's all she cares about anymore. =D

  29. tmc4narnia says:

    i just noticed those clothes that Peter and Susan are wearing in the trailer are the same as the ones of them on that VDT theater display we saw awhile ago

  30. tmc4narnia says:

    i just watched a clip on yahoo of a short behind the scenes video of carrie underwood performing "there is a place for us". It has a few new clips in it, very cool

  31. Bookwyrm says:

    I didn't really see any Watcher in it. Maybe if it had tentacles.

  32. Bookwyrm says:

    You disapprove of fanfiction, but not of WW=LotGK, an idea not found in the books? Curiouser and curiouser.

    The difference between the defeat of Satan by Jesus in the Bible and the defeat of the WW by Aslan in LWW is that the Biblical defeat is never described as anything but a spiritual victory. Far different from Aslan biting Jadis' head off or crushing her windpipe, whichever it was he did. If you subscribe to the WW=Satan theory, then a far more apt comparison would be that of Satan's destruction in Revelation.

    The "pouncings" were pretty flimsy too. ๐Ÿ˜› I'm not exactly certain what robots have to do with anything I said. And if you're going to combine the witch roles to lend structure, why not combine more roles? Cut Eustace from VDT and have Lucy and Edmund replace Eustace and Jill in SC. If they should keep bringing back Tilda to lend continuity or whatever, why risk the franchise on two new protagonists people might not like?

    I'm "revolted" by the idea because it's a significant change made to the story that only serves to weaken Aslan and transform the God/rebellious evil doer dynamic of the Aslan and the WW to a Good Powerful Entity/Bad Powerful Entity dynamic. If Aslan cannot keep the Witch dead, he clearly isn't divine or she is equally divine. And besides all of that theology, it takes a unique and IMHO more interesting character than the WW and turns her into some sort of comic book supervillain cheating death ad nauseum. If they make the LotGK Jadis, they might as well stick Tilda in a vulture headdress for LB and call her Tash because everyone will be assuming he is her anyway.

  33. Queen C The Gentle says:

    Thank You.

  34. Twinimage says:

    My theory so far is that Aslan is going to pull Lord Rhoop's sword out of dragon Eustace and then MAYBE Aslan will tear the dragon skin off. Though at this point I'm doubting a bit.
    According to the video where Eustace talks about, he says it was like a good pain, like PULLING out a thorn (sword?), and no matter how hard he tried he couldn't do it… Doesn't say what he was trying to do, maybe he was trying to pull the sword out.
    We'll see. Good point though. The shot of Aslan may have actually been from another scene. I took that for granted that it was from the same scene.
    What's important is, will the scene have the same affect as the scene in the book.

  35. Alambil and Tarvis says:

    This movie looks INFINITELY better than PC. WOW. ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

    I just love the hints at the Eustace/Reep interaction. Especially when they're swimming together. That was just adorable. ๐Ÿ™‚

  36. Zhixara says:

    Please, can anyone tell me what the song playing in the trailer is called? I've heard this song before and I'm trying to find it, but there is so much music out their in the trailers, I just can't look through them all. If anyone can help me, I'd sooo appreciate it because I loooove that song.

  37. aragorn2 says:

    Wow! whether it follows the book or not it is going to be awesome, though following the book is preferable ๐Ÿ™‚
