It's Time to Return to Narnia!
The Chronicles of Narnia: "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader"
In Cinemas Now!
It's finally here! The latest big screen adaptation of C.S Lewis' classic Christian allegorical series 'The Chronicles of Narnia: The Dawn Treader' is in cinemas across the UK this Christmas! We know that there are a great many Narnia fans among Premier's listeners, judging from the huge response we had to our promotion of the last movie - 'Prince Caspian' - and so we have been tracking the progress of 'The Voyage of the Dawn Treader' since the film went into production. The big news is that the film was selected for this year's Royal Premiere before it opened across the nation making it the must-see Christmas cinema experience!
Premier is working behind the scenes with the producers and distributors of the film to bring lots more news and goodies to our listeners, and we are delighted to be working with 20th Century Fox as one of their key partners. Why not bookmark this page and keep checking back here for more news, competition prizes....and lots of stuff we can't tell you at the moment?!
After their previous adventures in Narnia in the last film, 'Prince Caspian', Lucy and Edmond Pevensie are spending a dreary holiday with their cousin Eustace Clarence Scrub, a rather dour and mean spirited little boy. They are unexpectedly drawn back into Narnia when a painting of a ship on the wall of Lucy’s room comes to life, and the three children fall into an ocean...only to be rescued be the good ship Dawn Treader.
Once safely on board, Lucy and Edmond are greeted by their dear friend Caspian (now King of Narnia) who has undertaken a quest to find seven lost Lords of Narnia, as he had previously promised to Aslan. Lucy and Edmond are delighted to be back in Narnia, but for Eustace the adventure is going to mean a life changing experience he never dreamed of. With many old friends from the previous Narnia movies also on board, we are invited to join the Dawn Treader as she sets sail on an unknown course toward the 'utter East' and Aslan's very own country...
