Lucy (Henley) and Edmund Pevensie (Keynes) return to Narnia once more, with the addition of their irritable cousin Eustace Scrubb (Poulter). After reuniting with Caspian (Barnes) they accompany him on his quest across the sea to locate the Seven Lords, unjustly banished by his evil uncle Miraz. On the first sea journey Narnia has seen in centuries, the crew of the Dawn Treader will face deathly peril to retrieve the Lords, confronting corrupt governors, a dragon, and a mysterious apparition that seems intent on leading them astray.

Regardless of the poor box office returns that greeted Prince Caspian, Dawn Treader appears to be crowd pleaser, combining elements from other fantasy blockbusters like Stardust and Lord of the Rings, and complemented by the stunning digital effects of the standard we’ve come to expect from the Narnia franchise. Boasting the directoral talents of Michael Apted (007: The World is Not Enough), and considering the withdrawal of Disney support, Dawn Treader looks to have developed a more action heavy plot line. Balancing this are the furry members of the crew, most remarkably Reepicheep, whose highly entertaining part in the last film may only be enhanced by the use of Simon Pegg as the voice actor.

Whether you’re a long time fan or just getting started, Dawn Treader is a feast for the senses. Featuring stunning special effects, a dramatic score and an aesthetic which captures the best elements of the prequels, you are sure to be swept away by the sensory splendour and entertainment of what will undoubtably be one of the best fantasy films of the year.
