Now that the Harry Potter film franchise is coming to an end, it’s time for another fantasy franchise to try and keep the momentum going. That seems to be the plan for Fox’s Chronicles of Narnia films. There was a bit of doubt as to whether the franchise would continue, but the trailer for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader looks like it could mean just that. Here’s the official synopsis.
While Lucy and Edmund Pevensie are visiting their cousin, Eustace Scrubb, they encounter a magical painting that transports them back into the land of Narnia. Once there, they reunite with King Caspian aboard the “Dawn Treader,” the first ship to exist in Narnia for hundreds of years. King Caspian takes them on a perilous journey to find seven banished lords. Along the way they reunite with the lion Aslan, undertake a series of enchanting and terrifying adventures, and once again face the White Witch.
We’re about a month away from the release of the film, and the marketing is finally starting to ramp up with a brand new trailer. 2008’s Prince Caspian may not have been enough of a success to make this film a record-breaker, but that doesn’t mean we won’t get some good old-fashioned fantasy out of the deal.
