The Voyage of the Dawn Treader post 2

Well, I'm only a day late.  Not all that bad considering how late I usually am.  Anyway, I am going to post all the things I loved, hated, and also, some of the things I found hillariously funny. (which probably no one else in the world finds humorous at all.)  as a result, this post will be extremely disorganized.  Starting now.   Once the Pevinsies and Eustace were on the Dawn Treader, Caspian gave Lucy her gifts and tried to give Edmund Peter's sword.  He also gave Edmund something he'd left in Narnia...his electric torch.  a bit later, reepicheep is sitting on top of the dragon prow singing the song he sings in the books.  It even has a tune.  There are a bunch of Naiads in the water around this point.  They look like see-through mermaids.  The lone islands were changed a lot.  instead of being a Narnia controlled territory with a bad govenor, it is a formerly Narnian territory, that has been taken over by slave traders who sacrifice some of their slaves to a green mist.  I love how when Eustace gets turned into a dragon, they make it seem like he was eaten by a dragon.  Edmund and Caspian discover his burnt clothing, and then a dragon flies out and starts "attacking." The dragon then grabs Edmund and flies him over a mountain to glowing letters made by lighting some things (I think trees but I can't be sure) on fire spelling out,  "I am Eustace."  When they fight the seaserpent - which was made into a much bigger thing.  Instead of some random seaserpent, it was in the isle where dreams come true. - Edmund is standing on the crows nest when his sword glows blue.  One of the best parts of the movie was how they kept in the quote, "Lucy Pevinsie: Aslan, will we ever meet with you in our world? 
Aslan: You shall. 
Lucy Pevinsie: How? 
Aslan: Because there I have another name. You must learn to know me by that name. This was the very reason why you were brought to Narnia, that knowing me here for a little, you may know me better there. "  Well, that's all for now.  Next post, I'll either be in Exeter or at home after Exeter.


  1. I went and saw the Voyage of the Dawn Treader too. I really liked it. I think they kept the spirit of the characters and changed the story. In Prince Caspian they changed both. I found Gail a little strange. I think they kept her in only to say, "I want to be just like you when I grow up." what do you think?

  2. Oh, welcome back to Canada! How was the trip?
    Did you have a good time in England?
    Tell us all about it!

    God Bless you!
