Storyline

Lucy and Edmund Pevensie are stranded in Cambridge, living in the house of their obnoxious cousin Eustace, while the grown-ups Susan and Peter are living in the USA with their parents. When a painting of a ship sailing on the sea of Narnia overflows water in their room, Lucy, Edmund and Eustace are transported to the ocean of Narnia and rescued by King Caspian and the crew of the ship The Dawn Treader. Caspian explains that Narnia has been in peace for three years but before he took his throne back, his uncle tried to kill the seven lords of Telmar, who were the closest and most loyal friends of his father. They fled to The Lone Island and no one has ever heard anything about them. Now Caspian is seeking out the lords of Telmar with his Captain Drinian, the talking mouse Reepicheep and his loyal men. Soon, they discover that an evil form of green mist is threatening Narnia and the siblings and their cousin join Caspian in a quest to retrieve the seven swords of the seven lords of ...

Trivia

The original intention was that Miraz would briefly reprise his role as a hallucination triggered by the Green Mist. This would be the realization of Caspian's worst fear as his uncle would taunt him much like the White Witch appears to intimidate Edmund so that he would feel weakened. It was decided late into production they should switch the character and Caspian's father would be the apparition. The filmmakers hesitated because Caspian's father was a completely unknown face that could render the audience confused. They finally persevered with their second choice and went on to substitute Miraz with his brother, since they decided that the ultimate fear of Caspian was that he could never live up to his father's reputation as a King. Consequently, the manifestation of the Green Mist to influence Caspian resulted in being his father and not his uncle. See more »

I thought it couldn't be done...
21 December 2010 | by (Atlanta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Narnia has been the site of mini-vacations I've taken for nearly 40 years. I never say "I'm reading The Chronicles"; I say, "I'm taking a mini-vacation in Narnia." I do the same thing at least once a year in Middle Earth, and, every few years, in Thomas Covenant's The Land. I have read all seven of these books to my daughter. I know these books intimately.

I told my daughter that I couldn't imagine a movie of The Dawn Treader. The book is not the unified novel the other six are. It is several stories rather loosely connected by the sea voyage. How do you make a movie out of that? By telling the story better than the original author, that's how! The movie begins with the younger brother Edmund trying to overcome his sense of inferiority to his brother, Narnia's High King Peter, by enlisting in the Army. It goes to the younger sister Lucy longingly looking at her face in the mirror, wishing she were as beautiful as her older sister Susan, well setting us up for what is to come. No such foreshadowing exists in the novel.

At the Lone Islands, the mist that kidnaps unsold slaves is not from the novel at all, nor from anything I have read in C. S. Lewis. But it forms the framework for a unified story.

From their first encounter, Reepicheep generously undertakes the correction and rehabilitation of Eustace, which is an unexpected side-effect of his Narnian adventures in the novel. In the novel, Reepicheep cares only for his honor, and only later shows kindness to Eustace.

The Lone Islands adventures, the Island of the Dufflpuds, Ramandu's Island, the Dark Island are rearranged, condensed, reinterpreted, changed, transformed into a fine single story. The screenwriters have outdone C. S. Lewis as a storyteller in this case.

I love C. S. Lewis. Sometimes, jokingly, I refer to him as St. Clive. But I don't think it's blasphemous to say somebody has found a way to tell his story better than he did. I am impressed, and I recommend this movie most highly.
