First Pics From The Dawn Treader
Narnia’s titular lady takes centre stage

With principal filming on the third Narnia pic wrapping up in Australia today, it’s time for the post-production bells and whistles on The Voyage of the Dawn Treader to get started. Narnia fans get a shiny new production blog to follow, which promises to unleash surprises over the year until release next December, the first lot of which is three new pictures of one of the film’s main whistles, the Dawn Treader herself.

A world away from the BBC version’s low-key ship, this Dawn Treader is certainly brandishing its Disney-ness. The pic with Georgie Henley’s Lucy shows a ship that appears to have started life in Enchanted, and Ben Barnes’s (now King) Caspian has puffier sleeves than Cinderella, but the detail on that helm is breathtaking. Production designer Barry Robison reckons around 200 people worked on building the Dawn Treader, all of whom are listed in full on the ship’s mast.

Whether you like it or loathe it, this is a ship that was meant to become a theme park ride, and we’re putting a fiver on its twin ending up at Disney World before 2010 is out.

Are these actual shots from the film? They look more like behind-the-scenes snaps to me. More

Favourite book
Looks good, its my favourite book of the series so better not bugger it up, but the photos look promising, I'm actually excited about it, shame there isn't any evidence of Will Poulter as Eustace Scrubb, because he was an excellent choice! More
