Have you seen the international trailer for THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER, yet?

Hey folks, Harry here and I've been moderately obsessing with this trailer for some crazy reason. Well... Here's where I'm at on this. We've had two in this series thus far, and they were both non-offensive moderately interesting adaptations of the NARNIA series. Perhaps mostly, I've enjoyed the casting, but I've always felt it looked too clean and unreal in a way that doesn't quite hit my dream magical land. In many ways - this trailer kinda represents a little of what I'm talking about. First - THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER is the insane novel of the series - and I kinda can't believe I'll be seeing the one legged hopping people. That's mildly mind-blowing. But there's more to ponder here than the reality of the source material, there's also been a studio shift. Disney is no longer the studio, but FOX - and in some odd ways - FOX tends to be welcome to that Hildebrandt pow that I've wanted visually in Narnia. There's more pure fantasy on display in this trailer than the whole of the first two films. But then there's the change from the father of SHREK - to Michael Apted - a man that I tend to think DOCUMENTARY from first, then I remember vomiting upon myself while enjoying NELL, then it's how much I love BLINK and THUNDERHEART and COAL MINER'S DAUGHTER - and a whole lot more. Then - for the last 8 months, I've had a source telling me that the 3D on this film is going to blow people's minds. I can't say who, but I will say if they're excited, I'm excited. I've heard rumors of characters you'll only SEE in the 3D version of the film. And it makes the William Castle in me giggle for days. Very curious... There's a whole lot here that I should be wary of... FOX, NARNIA, post 3D and honestly I've no idea what Michael Apted and a giant production of Narnia's oddest tale could be, but this trailer got me there. I'm excited. I really hope this one works.
