Narnia fans are getting a Christmas present this year… in 3D. The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader trailer shows us a glimpse of the upcoming return to C.S. Lewis’ allegorical wonderland. After a lackluster showing for Prince Caspian and subsequent drop by Disney, die-hard fans of the allegorical series have been concerned about the delay and switch to 20th Century Fox. The trailer, however, suggests a seamless transition devoid of major stylistic differences.
Like many, I was underwhelmed by Caspian and hope the newest entry restores my faith in the film series. It’s also my wife’s favorite book of the seven, so I hope the adaptation does it justice and sets up the sequels for a full run. With Potter and Twilight finding enough audience interest to extend their final books into two films, I’d hate to see Lewis’ classic stories with undeniable biblical parallels dwindle and die.
