Really, I had no idea. I thought Prince Caspian kinda tanked, and so Disney had either given up the Narnia movies altogether or planned to release the next one on DVD, but here’s Voyage of the Dawn Treader, all ready for this Christmas, in 3-D and complete with lion Liam Neeson and albino Tilda Swinton and shit. I’m not saying I want to see it, I’m kind of impressed that Disney’s making it at all and that I didn’t hear about it at some point before this trailer.
Hmm. I think I know why the Narnia movies have been so middlingly received. Hey, Disney, you know what this flick needs? Owls. Preferably several thousand or so. (Via /Film)

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others. He is currently the managing editor of io9.com. Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
