In April, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader on Blu-ray and DVD.  If you’ve enjoyed watching The Chronicles of Narnia, you’ll love this one!  The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader in stores and online, retailing for $39.99 for Blu-ray and $29.98 for DVD.

SYNOPSIS

Return to the magic and wonder of C.S. Lewis’ epic world in this third installment of the beloved The Chronicles of Narnia fantasy-adventure series when The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader sails into Blu-ray and DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment on April 8th.  Imagination comes to life with stunning special effects that bring the vast oceans and sprawling landscapes to life.  The release comes just in time for Easter, making the family favorite a perfect gift for kids of all ages.

Precocious siblings Lucy (Georgia Henley, The Chronicles of Narnia series) and Edmund Pevensie (Skandar Heynes, The Chronicle of Narnia series), along with their cousin Eustace (Will Poulter, Son of Rambow), are swallowed into a painting and transported back to Narnia.  They join King Caspian (Ben Barnes, Dorian Gray) and a noble mouse named Reepicheep in a quest to rescue noble lords who had been lost fighting evil on another island.  Aboard the magnificent ship The Dawn Treader, the courageous voyagers travel to mysterious islands, confront mystical creatures, and reunite with the Great Lion Aslan on a mission that tests their characters to determine the fate of Narnia itself!

Academy Award®-nominee Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List) is featured as the voice of Aslan the Lion, Simon Pegg (Mission Impossible III) as the voice of Reepicheep the Mouse, and Academy Award®-winner Tilda Swinton (Michael Clayton) appears in a cameo as Jadis the White Witch.

THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE VOYAGE OF THE DAWN TREADER is available on Blu-Ray for the suggested retail price of $39.99 U.S. / $49.99 Canada and on DVD for the suggested retail price of $29.98 U.S. / $43.48 Canada.

MY THOUGHTS

This was a really good movie!  If you liked the other movies in The Chronicles of Narnia series, you’ll like this one as well.  There are many Special Features you’ll enjoy, available both on Blu-ray and DVD.  I was amazed at how much the actors and actresses had grown since the last movie.  I am happy we are able to add this to our movie collection.  A big thanks goes to Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment for this DVD review opportunity.

I received a copy of “The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader” on DVD from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to facilitate this review.  All opinions expressed in this post are 100% mine.
