The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010) - Review

ME AND MY LION Georgie Henley and Aslan embark on a new adventure in The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage...

The third leg of the big-screen voyage through C.S. Lewis' magical kingdom of Narnia finds the intrepid Pevensie kids Lucy (Georgie Henley) and Edmund (Skandar Keynes) sailing with Prince-turned-King Caspian (Ben Barnes) on the Narnian ship the Dawn Treader. They're manning what is essentially a floating goodwill embassy/fighting machine, populated by gnarly human sailors, talking animal sailors, and gnarly, talking, half-human, half-animal sailors. Evil is everywhere — I mean EEE-VILL, as Narnians pronounce it with a Princess Brideflourish. But the light of goodness and thespiritual influence of the sanctified lion Aslan guide Lucy and Edmund. Aslan even has a salutary effect on their priggish cousin Eustace (Will Poulter), a refreshingly horrid little bourgeois British pill unwillingly brought along for the journey.

He is then, one might say, reborn.
