Just for Fun - The Chronicles of Narnia continue...

What Peter Jackson did for The Lord of the Rings saga, so Walden Media has done for The Chronicles of Narnia. I've been so pleased wth the quality of these films, and eagerly await the next one. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader won't be out until Christmas, but here's the trailer to wet your whistle.

I want to know where the dragon is! and WHY are Peter and Susan here in this trailer? They sure aren't in the book... But the effects look amazing. I just hope they stick to the original story.

Grace, I haven't read a synopsis of the movie plot, so I can't say for sure, but here are my thoughts... Since the movie doesn't come out till December, it's possible that the dragon wasn't ready to be included in the trailer. As for Peter and Susan, nope, they weren't in the book. I suspect they're only in one short scene in the movie, just enough to satisfy audience members who haven't read the books but love those characters. Let's hope they don't find a way to bring Susan and Caspian together and send them off into the sunset ;+}

Lisa, this year there are only two movies I'm excited about: Toy Story 3 (which I saw and loved) and Dawn Treader. Even with the inevitable differences, it looks like it'll be a good one!
