No worries mate, I'm just surprised you've never seen the series. It's very well-known.

I (mostly) love the look of the DT ship, but I would've liked to see a golden lion's head design on the sail.

I've just recently seen the old BBC versions, with the exception of The Silver Chair since I am currently re-reading the book, I will then see it.

The Dawn Treader,
The BBC ship was quite nice but I too am preferring the one over it.
I guess I am just a bigger fan of what is being done now with the books.
(But the older movies are worth a watch)

I'm very exciting to see those photos of the Dawn Treader set.
The ship is so beautiful, especialy with the golden sun lighting.

Comparing with the BBC version, I'm wondering, dose the new production ship has two masts?
I had thought the new ship also had two mast.
But that smaller one with lamp dosen't have a yard and dosen't look it will have a sail to me.
I guess the main mast will have second sail or more sails in CG, but I can't see the smaller one will have a sail, because the lamp is on top of it.

I know nothing about any kind of ships, so I use following page for references of Mast and Sail.

Wow, with the new pictures from Tamara you can really see the detail on the lanterns and some of the mast! The lanterns look really good!

Just wanted to let everyone know that I FINALLY got the image gallery updated with all of the Cleveland Point pics

On the new site, the image gallery is different than the built in gallery for news stories, so these are much easier to look through. (They don't expand past your screen)

much appreciate that F_K! that sure makes it easier to see the entire photo without necessary sacrificing the original photo size.

btw, got a question for you about the commentaries in the front page. sending it to you via PM.

You know... I was really worried on how exactly the ship was going to turn out because in the start when the individual pieces were being built, it looked like some sort of carnival ride with all of the bright colors. #:-s But now that's it's all together, she looks BEAUTIFUL! I liked how the BBC one looked as well, but for some reason I feel this Dawn Treader has more diverse patterns and design. All the better for the movie. :)

I like how the ship looks more aged (less like a carnival ride) but it still isn't exactly what I pictured.

I feel so sad! Everyone keeps posting about the lovely purple sail and it comes up BLUE on both of my computer screens! :(( I don't think I like the design. Plain purple would have made a much bigger difference in the look of the ship. Not only simplistic and lovely (not to mention pure), I think a plain sail would be a lot more dramatic, especially when you see the ship sailing off into the sunset :P .

Maybe you should look at it on a different monitor. I've viewed on dozens of different computer screens, and on every screen it definitely looks purple. A beautiful rich purple.

i guess it depends on your perception of "purple". the purple sail has actually a stronger shade of blue than red, so truthfully its more blue-violet than bright purple (like what the Joker would wear)

when I saw the first pics I was like "what have they done????" or in Smeagol talk "you RUINED it!!" but seeing the more recent pics was just wow. It looks beautiful. And the detail, on the rigging and such. It's beautiful.

The colors DO look a little amusement park-y, but the whole thing is beautiful. I would love to run around on it.

What will they do with it once filming is over?


Edit: one thing I thought they did really well was the shape of it. How the tail is sooooo high in the back. It doesn't look flat with a head and tail just stuck on.

I really think they should keep the Dawn Treader somewhere in Australia and use it as a museum/attraction thingy. Do you know what kind of tourism that could bring in? Especially if VDT does really well (which of course it will) :) It would be heartbreaking if they just took it apart and got rid of it, it's amazingly beautiful. Maybe they'll use it as the ship Caspian leaves on in SC, so then they'll have to keep it around for a while... *hopes*

I just know that if I had the money I would definitely be willing to travel half way around the world to visit and walk on the Dawn Treader. It would be an amazing experience. So yeah, really hoping somebody will buy it and hold on to it or something.

The ship is breathtaking. Even when it looked like a carnival ride in pieces I still adored it. The only reservation I had was the shade of red added to the color palette. Without knowing the shade of the purple sail (back when we weren't sure if it would have the sail at all!) it was hard to visualize the overall outcome, but these recent pictures with the sail in the wind put those to rest. The colors, design, everything about the ship is beautiful.

caboo29: I also hope that they don't dismantle the ship after production. I want to see it in person so badly.
