The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is the third film in the Narnia series based on the much beloved series by C.S Lewis. The third film will follow the story of the two youngest Pevensie children as they return to Narnia. They meet up with Prince Caspian and sail across the sea on the Dawn Treader. Just like the Bible!
The third film sees Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely return to script the film, which follows Caspian as he fulfills his promise to find the seven lords of Narnia. The Pevensie children, along with their cousin Eustace, help out, and it is Eustace who has the most dramatic character arc of the story, but I won’t ruin it for you, since I know how you long for a return to the magic and wonderment of Narnia.
The third will have it’s third director, Michael Apted, who knows a thing or two about coming into established franchises and making big money, as he also directed The World is Not Enough.

C.S Lewis is died on the same day as JFK and Aldous Huxley. At least, that’s what the government wants you to believe.
Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch, and The Wardrobe, Prince Caspian.
What’s Good About It?
The first two were solid children’s films, although I find it funny that the filmmakers on one of the others tried to downplay the Christian allegory. No doubt that’s the way C.S. Lewis would have wanted it, since he really wasn’t religious at all. He just wrote all his books about the Good Lord Above. Amen!
What’s Bad About It?
There are seven of these books, and at some point people might get sick of them. They’re not as immediately relevant as the Harry Potter or Twilight series, although they have a longer lasting appeal. Seriously, in 50 years no one will be reading Twilight.
Our Clever Prediction
Opening weekend box office: One Million Dollars (puts pinky finger to mouth like Doctor Evil). Nah. It’ll do well, right around what Caspian did. Then they’ll make another one. None of the films will have the impact of Snoop Dogg’s Chronic of Barnia: Stoned with the Cows. But then, what film could?
