I saw this with my younger sister. That is my excuse for watching this film, otherwise I would not have watched it because the franchise has never interested me in the slightest (I have never finished the books either). Which would have meant that I had missed out on what (from my mid-20’s perspective) is a mildly enjoyable simple tale with swashbuckling heroes and a myriad of monsters from mythology.
Cambridge, World War 2. Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy Pevensie (Georgie Henley) find themselves staying with their fastidious cousin Eustace Scrubb (Will Poulter) while their older siblings are in America. One day, a painting of an ocean with a ship begins spraying water on the three. Soon they find themselves transported to an ocean in Narnia and rescued by King Caspian (Ben Barnes) and his ship The Dawn Treader. He is on a quest to find seven lost lords and save Narnia from an evil magic.
