The first trailer for The Chronicles of Narnia 3: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which will appear in front of theatrical showings of Toy Story 3 on June 18th, already hit the net.
The film once again follows Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, joined by their cousin Eustace Scrubb as they 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 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 film, which has found itself a new home at 20 Century Fox since Walt Disney dropped the option, is being directed by Michael Apted (Thunderheart, The World Is Not Enough, Amazing Grace) 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 3 hits 3D and 2D theaters on December 10th, 2010.
