NEW DELHI - The third in the Narnia series, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, for the first time in 3D format, is being released Dec 10 in India with over 800 prints.
The film will be released in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu.
Releasing simultaneously with the US, it is being distributed by Fox Star Studios here.
The Narnia series has a huge fan base in India and this time, with the enthusiastic support of our partners, we are aiming to reach an even larger number of audiences through a wider distribution reach in multiple Indian languages, Vijay Singh, chief operating officer, Fox Star Studios India, said in a statement.
The Narnia franchise features in the top five Hollywood film franchises in India of all time.
Directed by Micheal Apted, it is the big-screen adaptation of the third published novel in C.S. Lewis’s epic fantasy series. It stars Georgie Henley, Skandar Keynes, Will Poulter, Ben Barnes, Liam Neeson and Simon Pegg.
The latest Narnia extravaganza will see Edmund and Lucy Pevensie, who along with their pesky cousin Eustace Scrubb find themselves swallowed into a painting and on to a Narnian ship headed for the very edges of the world. Joining forces once again with their royal friend Prince Caspian and the warrior mouse Reepicheep, they are whisked away on a mysterious mission to the Lone Islands, and beyond.
On the voyage, the trio face magical Dufflepuds, sinister slave traders, roaring dragons and enchanted merfolk. However, only an entirely uncharted journey to Aslan’s Country - a voyage of destiny and transformation for each of those aboard the Dawn Treader can save Narnia, and all the astonishing creatures in it, from an unfathomable fate.
