The Chronicles of Narnia series has successfully stayed true to the original fantasy novels (by C.S. Lewis).Years after the the Pevensie children have returned home from their journey in Narnia and successfully restoring peace to the magical land (in The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian). Of course, the kids have grown up. The question is - is the magic still there?
While Edmund (played by Skandar Keynes) and Lucy (played by Georgie Henley) and Eustace (played Will Poulter) are still together as they are still kids, Peter (played by William Moseley) the eldest of the kids, once crowned Narnia's High King of Narnia, and Susan Pevensie (played by Anna Popplewell), the second eldest, and once crowned a Queen of Narnia are both too old to visit Narnia anymore. Their lives have changed, as they move away. While Eustace doesn't believe in his cousin's stories of Narnia, everything changes when a wall painting begins leaking water, and the kids find themselves on the Dawn Treader, a ship in Narnia's waters. However, this time it isn't war, but an attempt to solve a mystery for King Caspian (played by Ben Barnes) that is extremely important to helping the Narnian people. As the children go on yet another quest, they must fight temptation, learn about tehmselves and become stronger and wiser than they thought to be possible.
This doesn't mean that the 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' is serious and boring - there's a lot of adventure, danger and excitement once the story truly takes off. Incredible CGI, great acting and a rich screenplay make it an important watch for those who have followed the Narnia trilogy. The movie won several awards for acting, screeplay, music, special effects and animation, and production design.
