Production is handled by WaldenMedia. Financing and distribution for the films were originally done by {{Creator/Disney}}, but after the second film the rights were given to Creator/TwentiethCenturyFox, who is expected to produce the remaining films.

** It's also explained in the book that the White Witch's Turkish Delight has some mind control powers over whoever eats it, and shown that Edmund only let her get close to him out of fear, making Edmund's betrayal over a supply of candy seem far less petty.

* MoneyDearBoy: Following the 2010 release of the film version of ''Voyage of the'' Dawn Treader, FOX is planning to film ''The Magician's Nephew'' next instead of ''The Silver Chair'', after noticing that the films have so far grossed back amounts that roughly correspond to the popularity of the book involved - and ''The Magician's Nephew'' is usually considered the second most-popular in the ''Narnia'' series.

* [[NetworkToTheRescue Studio To The Rescue]]: After Disney was disappointed with ''Prince Caspian'' not performing quite as well as ''Wardrobe'' they decided to pass their option to release ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader'' due to budget disputes, at which point Fox promptly offered to pick up the contract. Some see this as a WhatAnIdiot move for Disney, as ''Prince Caspian'' is generally regarded as one of the least popular books in the series, while ''Dawn Treader'' is the most. ** Of course, ''Dawn Treader'' went to gross less than even ''Prince Caspian'', so maybe Disney did the smart thing after all. Now, with Walden Media's contract with the Lewis Estate having expired, the [[DevelopmentHell development]] of the fourth movie is in indefinite hiatus.

!! Tropes from ''Voyage of the Dawn Treader'': * BiggerBad: [[spoiler:The Lady of the Green Kirtle]] in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', since WordOfGod confirms [[spoiler:she's the one behind the green mist]]. * BrattyHalfPint: Eustace. It's extraordinarily difficult not to hate him until his CharacterDevelopment finally kicks in. * CallMyName: Edmund and Lucy constantly call each other's name in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader'', when they're separated from each other, talking to each other or if they're in danger. * ContinuityNod: in what could be also considered a SequelHook, Jill Pole, one of the protagonists of ''Literature/TheSilverChair'', gets a brief mention at the end of ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''. ** In the same film, as in the corresponding book, the Stone Knife from the first film/book gets a brief appearance and mention. Probably confusing for anyone who hasn't either read the books or got a very good visual memory, since it's never named as such in the first film. * CoolShip: The ''Dawn Treader'', of course. * CursedWithAwesome: [[spoiler:Eustace]] stealing treasure and getting turned into a dragon. You'd think the curse would turn one into something completely useless like a toad, and not a ''flying, fire-breathing death machine'' with human sentience intact! * FireForgedFriends: [[spoiler: Reepicheep with Eustace, once the former takes him under his wing and especially once the latter has become a dragon]]. * TheOtherDarrin: Creator/SimonPegg took over the voice of Reepicheep from Creator/EddieIzzard. * SwordOfPlotAdvancement: The seven swords of the seven Lords of Narnia, which must be placed on Aslan's Table to put an end to the evil mist plaguing the area. * TalkingWithSigns: [[spoiler: I AM EUSTACE]] "written" on the burning brush that Edmund sees from being carried in the dragon's claws in ''Dawn Treader''. * WasOnceAMan: The dragon the crew of the Dawn Treader encounters on the island of enchanted gold. [[spoiler: Better known to them as Eustace Scrubb]]. But Eustace himself encounters no dragon, unlike in the book.

Moved to Prince Caspian
!!Tropes from ''Prince Caspian'' * AdaptationalBadass: The River God in ''Prince Caspian.'' Goes from a minor spirit asking Aslan to free him from the Telmarine bridge to a powerful water deity that drowns the Telmarine army and ''swallows Lord Sopespian.'' ** Susan in the second movie. She was given the moniker "The Gentle" for a reason. Suddenly, she becomes a [[Series/XenaWarriorPrincess Xena]] wannabe killing the enemies with arrows just by throwing them and holding off a group of soldiers alone with her bow and quiver of arrows. ** Miraz. In the book, he was a traditional evil yet cowardly monarch, whereas in the film he is cold-blooded, calculating, and seems unafraid of anything. * ChronicBackstabbingDisorder / TheStarscream: [[spoiler: Miraz falls victim to treacherous Telmarine lords who don't like to be ordered around by a king]]. * CombatPragmatist: in the second round of their duel, both Peter and Miraz are not above using some dirty moves (like punching the opponent in a wounded knee). * CombatTentacles: The walking Trees. * DarkerAndEdgier: Especially ''Prince Caspian''. This was {{lampshaded}} in the trailer: -->''You will find Narnia a more savage place than you remember...'' * DashingHispanic: The Telmarine culture in the second movie is [[FantasyCounterpartCulture very obviously based]] on Golden Age Spain, so Caspian qualifies as an example. Ben Barnes even based his characterization on [[Film/ThePrincessBride Inigo Montoya]]). * ExpectingSomeoneTaller: Prince Caspian meeting Peter for the first time. [[YearInsideHourOutside Justified, given the time difference]]. Played for laughs by Reepicheep later on. * FacelessGoons: Telmarine soldiers, wearing face-concealing {{Rage Helm}}s. * FantasyCounterpartCulture: Telmarine culture is stylized to resemble Golden Age Spain. Much like in the book, HandWaved by explaining that Telmar was founded by Earth pirates who accidentally found their way to Narnia. Likewise, Narnia itself has "Merry Old England" vibes. * IfYouKillHimYouWillBeJustLikeHim: Caspian with Miraz. * ImprobableUseOfAWeapon: In ''Prince Caspian'' during the castle raid, Susan throwing an arrow at a soldier and having it sink in and kill him. * MadeOfIron: Honourable mention goes to Asterius, the minotaur who led the FoeTossingCharge into the castle in ''Prince Caspian'', and held up the portcullis ''while getting shot several times'' as the others escaped. * MaskPower: The Telmarines now sport {{Badass}} baroque metal masks with fearsome visages of bearded Conquistadors on them. * NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent: If Caspian and his sailors are any indication, the whole Telmarine race apparently drops their vaguely-Spanish accents some time between ''Prince Caspian'' and ''The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader''. Perhaps he took on an English accent so the native Narnians were more comfortable with him? * OnlyTheWorthyMayPass: From the Lone Islands on, King Caspian, the Pevensies and Eustace are subjected to various temptations that would cause them to either abandon or die in their quest. * OrdinaryHighSchoolStudent: Peter had a hard time becoming one again, after being High King. All of the Pevensies had a hard time of this. * PromotedToLoveInterest: Caspian and Susan. * PuttingOnTheReich: WordOfGod [[http://web.archive.org/web/20080209204701/http://www.comingsoon.net/news/narnianews.php?id=36746 states]] that Telmarine aesthetic was designed to give them a fascist feel. * TheRestShallPass: Susan to Lucy in ''Prince Caspian'', when she stays behind to hold off the pursuing soldiers so that Lucy can find Aslan in time. * RunningGag -->'''Reepicheep''': Choose your last words carefully, Telmarine. -->'''Caspian''': You are a mouse. -->'''Reepicheep''': I was hoping for something a little more original. ** Later: -->'''Soldier''': You're a --! -->'''Reepicheep''': Yes, I'm a mouse. ** And again: -->'''Soldier''': You're a mouse. -->'''Reepicheep''': You people have no imagination. * ScrewedByTheNetwork: Disney's marketing of the ''Film/PrinceCaspian''. Rather than release it in December as a family film (like ''Film/TheLionTheWitchAndTheWardrobe'' was), they decided to spend enormous amounts of money trying to sell it as a teen film and gave it a summer release, about a week apart from both ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'' and ''Film/IronMan''. It should have been kept in December, because that's friendlier to this type of movie, but to be fair, May has shown it can expand just fine (see 2003 and 2007). And ''IronMan'' was hardly seen as a sure thing at the time. Basing the marketing around Ben Barnes may have been a dumb move, however. * TallDarkAndHandsome: Caspian and teenager/adult Edmund. * {{Xenafication}}: Susan in ''Prince Caspian''. Justified in that she had been practicing her archery skills for 15 years, plus another year on Earth, just like her siblings. * YearInsideHourOutside: Susan jokes in the ''Prince Caspian'' film that this makes her 1300 years older than Caspian. * YouDidntAsk: Aslan summons an army of talking trees to defeat the Telmarines -- ''after'' the Narnians send Lucy to ask for his help. * YouKilledMyFather
