20th Century Fox has unveiled the first teaser poster for The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
, the third film in the Narnia franchise and the first to be released by Fox. Disney did not pick up the rights for the third film after the less-than-expected box-office returns.
This time around – Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, along with their pesky cousin Eustace Scrubb – find themselves swallowed into a painting and on to a fantastic Narnian ship headed for the very edges of the world.
Joining forces once again with their royal friend Prince Caspian and the warrior mouse Reepicheep, they are whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands, and beyond. On this bewitching voyage that will test their hearts and spirits, the trio will face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. Only an entirely uncharted journey to Aslan’s Country – a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader – can save Narnia, and all the astonishing creatures in it, from an unfathomable fate.
The third film is directed by Michael Apted
(The World Is Not Enough) and stars Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Ben Barnes, Will Poulter, Gary Sweet, Bruce Spence, Arthur Angel, Shane Rangi
and Liam Neeson
The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader
is set to hit theatres on December 10, 2010.
