‘Dawn Treader’ DVD Due to Arrive at Easter?

In an interview between HollywoodJesus.com and Michael Flaherty of Walden Media, there is a brief mention of when the DVD for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader may arrive in stores.

HJ: My first question is probably kind of weird one, but as a fan of films and a fan who likes to collect films that I like, this has been a burning question in my mind. What does the change from Disney to Fox mean for future Narnia box sets for Blu-ray and DVD? You have two distributors now; is that going to make it challenging to put together box sets where people can get all of the Narnia films in one set?

MF: You’ve just hit on something that there’s a team of lawyers right now who woke up early in Burbank are trying to figure out. That’s a very good question, but I think we’ll get a good solution.

HJ: Okay, so you haven’t quite worked that out yet.

MF: No, no we’re hoping to by Easter when this comes out on DVD.

The interview continues on and is available on HollywoodJesus here.

Easter falls on April 24, 2011 this year, so keep your eyes open for the DVD then! If you’ll recall, Walden and Disney released the DVD for The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe during Easter as well.

Thanks to Daniel James for the heads up!

    Please let there be an extended-edition DVD release. If ever there was a film in the last 10 years that so desperately needed an extended cut it was this. Fox have done extended cuts for many other films which were far less in need than this one (The A-Team anyone?) so please please please let it happen.

    Yea I do too, but I am very impressed that you have a blu…what ? ray ? player…sounds like witchcraft to us hicks

  4. Moonwood says:

    I can only wish someday I could have first comment, then my life will have been worth something.

  5. greenbird37 says:

    Cant wait for it to come out for my collection…I personally loved it. They can fit so much in a movie…if we have read the book, we did not actually miss anything. The movie was very entertaining and I would see it again if I could!

  6. Daniel James says:

    Haha thanks, A—-! No problem.

  7. Daniel James says:

    Haha thanks, A—-! No problem.

  8. Daniel James says:

    Whoops, I meant to say that to someone else…but thank you too!!

  9. Snicket says:

    PQ= picture quality.

    Considering Inception just sold 65% in blu-ray, the death of DVD is nigh.

  10. HighQueenofNarnia says:

    Oh, come now, I'm certain your life is worth something even if you never get the first comment.
    But I join you to wishing to get first comment and then have time to actually COMMENT before someone else becomes the first-commenter. 😉

    To "add something to the discussion", as Tribunal put it: Easter then? A good present! I will ask for it… 😉 Do y'think they'll have the VotDT extended version with the second disc, like PC and LWW? With all the special features?
    (Have I added to the discussion enough to compensate for wanting something so trivial, Tribunal?) 😉

  11. Edmund's Queen says:

    Yes, yes, yes! I want to get it the day it is released; just like I saw it the day it came to theaters. Do you think they'll have a 3- or 4-disc edition like they do of PC and LWW? If so, I'll buy that! The extras are always SO funny and great.

  12. Edmund's Queen says:

    I know; we are once again counting down!

  13. Rob says:

    If the momentum for this movie goes further south rather quickly, perhaps we can help persuade them to up the DVD/Blu-Ray release date.

  14. stateofgreen says:

    I second this! Though part of me is a bit skeptical that there are even scenes that would make this a better movie going by the hack job they did to crucial book scenes…i.e. Eustace story.

  15. Braden Woodburn says:

    Wow yeah, that does seem early. Most movies take at least 5 or 6 months before they are out in stores. But this is rather exciting. I think since it is most likely "The Silver Chair" next, I've thought of a way they could go making the franchise. I think once "The Silver Chair" is out, in order for the Pevensies, Eustace, and Jill to grow older, they should do "The Magician's Newphew" with a tagline of "let's go back to the very beginning of it all". Then, make "The Last Battle" and have a tagline saying "we've seen it all, now it's time to return to Narnia for one last time". Now, in my opinion, "The Horse and His Boy" I feel wouldn't do so great as a film. I would say it is my least favorite out of the books and since that it takes place while the Pevensies are still in Narnia from "The Lion, The Witch, and the Wardrobe" before they come back out, it may throw some people off who haven't read the books in the right order. Plus, since there were different actors and actresses that played them as older, it would be rather weird to have the original Pevensies back if they are older in real life. And the storyline is completely different. Although I would hate to say it, but "The Horse and His Boy" should just stay as a book. So, my best way they could do this course of action for films is "The Silver Chair" next now that "Voyage of the Dawn Treader" has been released, "The Magician's Nephew" to give everyone more time to age in real life, and then "The Last Battle". For anyone that has read this, PLEASE reply on your opinion. I am interested. Thanks.

    you'll never see that again with this series.

  17. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    "great", i dont have blu-ray, one more piece of junk i have to get….

  18. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    ancient narnian history……. : )

  19. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    I'm wondering if they are holding on to a scene with the 4 kids in narnian clothes like we saw in the commercials-

  20. High Queene Shelly Belly says:

    let's just hope the fate of narnia is no longer in OUR hands lol- i'd rather the narnians handledf it- the kids are old enough to portray themselves as adults now. i always see the horse and his boy as being very cinematic. pictures of turrets and taj mahal type buildings, moonlight on the beach, cool arabian nights costumes- i think itwould be awesome. my best advice would be to make the colormen soome fantasy color skin, like red or blue or green, so no body gets "offended" that it is a thinly veiled slap at them. (which it actually is). just what we need, people threatening to bomb the theatres it's playing at.

  21. wolfloversk says:

    Oh that's nothing, we still have our VCR 😛

  22. wolfloversk says:

    *Just found out she's not coming home for Easter* That could cause some slight problems… Ah well, I'll find a way to Wal-Mart I guess (really wants to hear the audiocommentary* And there'd better be deleted scenes, and bloopers 😉

  23. narnian21 says:

    I don't really agree with that order. i do agree with that tagline for MN, but you can't have the ultimate ending for the narnia series and then slap another movie after that. it would totally ruin the flow of the movies. and plus the characters at the end of HHB should be with everyone in LB.

    I think HHB would make a great movie. Its pretty cinematic if i remember right so they shouldn't have to make changes to the story. It also has the pevensie kids in there as well so people will be familiar with those characters. a story within a story

  24. narnian21 says:

    maybe they filmed that just to throw people off

  26. SavedByGrace says:

    My family still buys DVDs AND still has a VCR. Some of our favorite movies are kinda old and aren't on DVD.

    Tony Nixon and Arabella Morton posted this on Facebook: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1223947/
    Looks like we may be getting SC after all…

  28. camilo says:

    but prince caspian took more then 4 months to come out
    it took like 7 months for it to come out

  29. The narniad says:

    The DVD will have special features won't it?! It shouldn't make a difference whether it's on DVD or Blueray for special features, surely?

  30. The narniad says:

    I think that's just a prediction, very subject to change I'm afraid… 🙁

  31. Tabitha2269 says:

    Yeah, my birthday is april 10th, so it'll be late for a b-day present for me too. 🙁
