      Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader
      Favorable Comments from Reviewers
      Narnia News Blog Update

      I received a newsletter from the C.S. Lewis Society of California which
      included some quotes from a variety of different reviewers. Here is what is
      being said about The Voyage of the Dawn Treader:

      “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader offers a splendid opportunity for the
      Christian community to support an outstanding portrayal of a much-beloved
      children’s book written by one of the great culture-shapers of modern times,
      C.S. Lewis.”
      —Philip Yancey, Editor at Large, ChristianityToday

      “This is a rip-snorting adventure fantasy for families, especially the
      younger members who are not insistent on continuity.”
      —Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

      “The themes of redemption and grace are presented in moving and memorable
      fashion. Voyage of the Dawn Treader is more than just action-packed—it’s
      inspiration-packed.”
      —Jim Daly, President, Focus on the Family

      “We were swept away by this best Narnia yet! With awesome beauty, fierce
      adventure and delightf;ul humor, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader rises from
      the
      printed page to the 3D screen. This is classic Lewis—Narnia returns!”
      —Steve Bell, Executive Vice President, Willow Creek Association

      “This is a film which will resonate deeply . . . . The spiritual content
      is what lifts a pure fantasy based on Homer’s Odyessy into the realm of
      allegory of the Christian life. . . . Highly recommended for audiences seven
      and up.”
      —Catholic Media Review

      “A worthy challenger to the far more popular Harry Potter pictures.”
      —Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel

      “Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is an exciting,
      well
      crafted roller coaster ride of holiday entertainment. In many ways, it is one
      of the best movies this year. Even so, fans of the book will find that the
      story has been changed in significant ways. . . . but it must be noted there
      is still a strong faith element, salvation theme and references to the Son of
      the Creator of the Universe having another name in our world and Lucy and
      Edmund needing to get to know him. . . . in every respect a four star movie,
      in terms of entertainment and production values. Whereas the book is
      episodic,
      the movie has a focused goal and a classic story arc. The characters are well
      developed, the dialogue is brisk, the 3D and special effects are good, and
      the
      ending is heart-rending.”
      —Movie Guide

      “Perhaps the best news for Walden is that Dawn Treader proves delightful
      enough that it should lead to another Narnia film. Dawn Treader also will
      likely inspire those who skipped the second installment to seek it out and
      get
      caught up on the story of Caspian (Ben Barnes), who has a big part in the
      third film, too.”
      —Crosswalk

      “Eye-popping and entertaining.”
      —New York Post

      “The really good news is that if you’re looking for a thoroughly
      enjoyable
      family outing this Christmas, you need look no further. This is a delight. I,
      for one, loved it: Five out of five shield rating.”
      —Daily Mail

      “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader arrives with confidence and bravado
      intact. . . . and arguably the most Tolkien-esque of the Narnia books.”
      —The Guardian

      “The Voyage of the Dawn Treader is a solid sequel that might even surpass
      the first entry as the best in the series for some fans. It also bodes well
      for the future of this once iffy franchise.”
      —IGN

      “Fox and Walden’s Narnia is a reason for Christians everywhere to rejoice
      as it lays its foundation firmly back in the faith that has made Lewis’ books
      beloved for generations. The movie gets its message across clearly but still
      leaves room for thought and pondering, all while providing great action and
      entertainment.”
      —Marshall and the Movies
