Even though it’s just a month away from being released, we haven’t really seen a lot of Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader on the internet. That’s party because, instead, Fox has opted to show a thirty minutes of the movie in theaters around the country in a series of special screening, and also partly because Fox’s general attitude towards the internet is dismissive and distrustful. Apparently they hate what they can’t control.

Still it’s hard not to notice that a new poster for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 is released on the internet at least once a week and that our Deathly Hallows image gallery is so full of cool photos that I’ve lost count of how many are actually in there. Meanwhile here I am excited because we finally have three actual images from Narnia, and the way things are going, we may not see any others.

You should be particularly excited about this first image because it features Eustace. Not the mouse (that’s Aslan admirer Reepicheep), the dragon. Eustace is easily the best character in C.S. Lewis’s books and he actually starts out as kind of a whiny, petulant, asshole… a kid actually, transported into Narnia by accident. He’s utterly unlike those boring kids you’ve seen in the other movies and, oh yeah, half way through the movie he’s turned into a dragon. This transformation doesn’t go well. Here’s Eustace:


The other two photos are a little involved. This scene I caught a part of during that thirty minutes they showed critics last week. The kids are learning they’ll be tempted (but they won't learn this is all an obvious Christian allegory).


This comes from a scene I haven’t watched. Does it look like Lucy’s standing in front of a matte painting to anyone else?


The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader sets sail December 10th. For more information visit our film database.
