In the main cabin of the Dawn Treader with the map of Narnia there are also paintings of places in Narnia on the walls of the cabin. Tashbaan, the capital of Calormen and a city visited in the Narnia book 'The Horse and His Boy,' is frequently shown. See more »
King Caspian introduces Edmund as High King. Peter is the High King of Narnia, not Edmund. The title does not pass on. See more »
Dawn Treader is incredibly entertaining and deep in meaning!!
This is by far the best so far of the Narnia films! Loaded with action and adventure, really funny scenes where Eustace's attitude and twisted face provide many laughs, and spiritual symbolism that is so rich -- this film is a total winner! I loved Reepicheep's courage and dignity, and the virtue in spite of struggle of the Pevensies. Aslan comes through in the lives of those he loves in his perfect timing. Jam-packed with special effects, this movie is visually stunning and will be an excellent film for families with tweens and teens! My teenage daughter loved it too -- we went to a special preview screening last night. I'm definitely going to recommend this film to all of the families I know, and I can't wait to see it again . . . already!
