The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader — the first trailer!

I haven’t read the book version of The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in a few years now, so I don’t know quite how to pick this trailer apart just yet — but I’m sure the true Narnia fans out there will be chiming in pretty soon. In the meantime, behold:

    Wasn't bad at all. Now if the White Witch's appearance coincided with their voyage through the Darkness, that would make sense.

    It could have. Remember that the darkness holds everyone's dreams. Technically, he could have dreamed that encounter at one time–and the dream itself wouldn't necessarily be at night or in darkness.
    Still, I think it more likely that they messed up.

    That scene would have normally been about Lucy, just as the movie's main plot would mostly have been about Eustace. It seems like this movie's gonna give a test, instead, of some sort to Lucy, Edmund and Eustace.

    What I don't understand is why the movie will have a glowing girl and a glowing sword. There's this girl shown at the end of the trailer who glows bright blue, and then disappears. But the only important girl in the story is the Star's daughter, who most definitely does not disappear. And the only sword given any importance at all is Eustace's, which he uses to try to kill a sea serpent.
