* {{Badass}}: Tons of people in ''Prince Caspian''. Notable examples are Miraz, whose duelling skills are shown to be more than a match for Peter's; Susan, whose archery skills have become impeccable; and Edmund, who has more awesome moments than Peter and Caspian combined... and less dialogue than either. It's as if he spent those 1,300 Narnian years [[TookALevelInBadass training for this movie]].
** All the royals in ''The Voyage of the Dawn Treader''. Caspian and Edmund are both deadly swordsmen, and Lucy wields both a sword and Susan's bow and arrows with a lot of skill.

* UrbanLegends: Somehow, the idea that {{Evanescence}} had written material for the soundtrack of the first film, but had been declined as being "too epic," spread far and wide until Amy Lee herself finally declared it was all bogus.

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.

** It's also explained in the book that the White Witch's magical food - at Edmund's request Turkish Delight - has some mind control powers over whoever eats it, and shown that Edmund only really let her get close to use 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.
