'Dawn Treader' Set Attracting Local Attention

Posted: 12 Aug 2009 05:38 AM PDT

Matt Dunston of Australia's Nine News did a special report on the set for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader last night. According to the story, the large set at Cleveland Point has been attracting a lot of attention from curious local residents. It is a "spectacular set," at 43 meters long and almost as high, against a clear, wide horizon. One resident says, "Everyone's just amazed at the size of it." The entire set will be dismantled and moved when the filming is over — although apparently, the locals wouldn't mind if they left some of it behind!

After the filming at Cleveland Point is complete, they will be moving the Dawn Treader set to Southport on the Gold Coast.

Thanks caspianX for the heads-up!

Two More Casting Announcements - Pug and Lord Bern

Posted: 11 Aug 2009 05:48 PM PDT

We've received two more casting announcements this evening exclusive to NarniaWeb!

Australian actor Terry Norris has been cast in the role of Lord Bern (one of the seven Lords for whom Caspian is searching). Terry Norris was born in Melbourne, Victoria. He has appeared in many roles on television, film and theatre but is probably best known for his role as Senior sergeant Eric O'Reilly in the television series Cop Shop.

You can view Terry Norris' IMDb page here and Lord Bern's character profile here.

Australia actor Colin Moody has been cast in the role of Pug (the slaver who captures Caspian, Edmund, Lucy, Eustace, and Reepicheep on one of the Lone Islands). Colin Moody graduated from Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Art with a degree in Performing Arts in 1990. Since then, he has had a very successful career in television and also has done some work in the art department, which includes the movie Bridget Jones's Diary.

You can view Colin Moody's IMDb page here and Pug's character profile here.

We're not 100% sure, but we think this picture here from's gallery might be Pug in costume.

What do you all think?

More Pictures from Narrowhaven and the Dawn Treader

Posted: 11 Aug 2009 03:33 PM PDT

In addition to their news story earlier, has added a photo gallery with 35 pictures from the filming yesterday. They include lots of extras in costume, several of the crew, and a couple great shots of Will Poulter (Eustace) and David Vallon (Gumpas).

You can check out their full gallery here.

We also have a couple new pictures of the Dawn Treader to share as well. The first comes from 'kelmagic'. The picture is a bit dark and kind of hard to see, but if you look closely, there has been quite a bit of detailing added to the stern of the ship, which might include a tail perhaps?

And finally, NarniaWebber 'ceppault' found another picture of the Dawn Treader on sandgatecanoeclub's Flickr, which can be seen here. This picture is a bit older as some of the detailing hasn't been added on yet, but this shot was taken from the sea so you can get a good look at the other side of the ship without anything in the way.

David Vallon Cast as Gumpas

Posted: 11 Aug 2009 11:09 AM PDT

NarniaFans learned that David Vallon has been cast as Governor Gumpas in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

There is a clear shot of him acting as Gumpas in the video we just posted a few minutes ago.

Gumpas is a cowardly, selfish, but cunning man who profits from the slave trade on the Lone Islands — at least until Caspian and his crew arrive. You can read more about Gumpas in our Character Profile guide here.

David Vallon on IMDb.
