New Narnia Images Zero In On Eustace The Dragon
Even though itís just a month away from being released, we havenít really seen a lot of Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader on the internet. Thatís 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 Foxís general attitude towards the internet is dismissive and distrustful. Apparently they hate what they canít control.
Still itís 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 Iíve 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 (thatís Aslan admirer Reepicheep), the dragon. Eustace is easily the best character in C.S. Lewisís books and he actually starts out as kind of a whiny, petulant, assholeÖ a kid actually, transported into Narnia by accident. Heís utterly unlike those boring kids youíve seen in the other movies and, oh yeah, half way through the movie heís turned into a dragon. This transformation doesnít go well. Hereís 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 theyíll be tempted (but they won't learn this is all an obvious Christian allegory).
This comes from a scene I havenít watched. Does it look like Lucyís 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.
