This third film in the Narnia franchise finds Edmund and Lucy Pevensie (Skandar Keynes, Georgie Henley), along with their pesky cousin Eustace Scrubb (Will Poulter), swallowed into a painting and onto a fantastic Narnian ship headed for the edge of the world. Joining forces with their friend Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) and the warrior mouse Reepicheep (Simon Pegg), the group is whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands and beyond. The voyage will test their hearts and spirits as they face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. Only an uncharted journey to Aslan’s Country-a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader-can save Narnia and all the astonishing creatures who live there. The third movie is usually about the time a franchise starts to slip wildly, but that’s not necessarily the case here if you or your kids are fans of the Narnia books by C.S. Lewis.
