Last night lots of stars braved the cold for Royal Film Performance of The Chronicles Of Narnia: The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader in London. As it was the Royal Film Performance, who attended? Only the bloody Queen.
Not only was the Queen there but she wore 3D glasses to view the film, alongside all the other viewers, which included X-Factor stars One Direction.
Liam Neeson, who is the voice of Aslan the lion in the film, said:”Now there’s a sight, the Queen in 3D glasses, I hope she doesn’t lean on my shoulder and fall asleep!”
Simon Pegg, who voices the mouse Reepicheep, was equally excited saying:
“It’s a big deal to meet the monarch, and I shall be looking around to see if she’s wearing her 3D specs… gold ones!”
The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader is the third fantasy adventure film from The Chronicles of Narnia films, based on the legendary books from C.S Lewis. It stars Skandar Keynes, Georgie Henley, Will Poulter and Ben Barnes amongst others.
The third instalment is the first of the franchise to be released in Digital 3D. The Royal Film Performance last night was in aid of the Cinema & Televison Benevolent Fund, which the Queen is patron of (which we’re guessing is why she was there, unless she just really loves a bit of Narnia).
The film is set one year after Prince Caspian, which was not a box office hit, which was thought to be due to it’s summer release. They can’t complain about that this time, as it was certainly nice and wintery last night, the perfect weather for a Narnia film, don’t you think?
The Voyage Of The Dawn Treader tells the story of what happens when the youngest Pevensie children Edmund and Lucy are transported back to Narnia with their cousin Eustace Scrubb. Together with the new King of Narnia, King Caspian, they struggle to save the magical kingdom from evil.
The film will be out in UK cinemas on December the 10th.
