Movie Comparison Anyone who has ever read a book then watched the movie adaptation knows that there are usually aren’t the same. The same is true for “The Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader.” This movie differs significantly from the book in a lot of ways including plot change, chorological order, and even characters. In both the “Chronicles of Narnia: Voyage of the Dawn Treader” book and movie Eustace is turned into a dragon. Although it happens in both the book and the movie there are a lot of differences in how it all occurs. In the book Eustace escapes to take a nap on a nearby hill while the others are busy filling up barrels with water and getting the boat ready to sail again. Eustace gets lost on his way back and eventually ends up in a dragons cave to avoid the rain. While in this cave he discovers all the treasure he could have ever dreamed of. But because of the type of boy Eustace is he doesn’t know how a dragons treasure can enchant things. It is because of his greed that he becomes a dragon. After Lucy realizes that Eustace is missing Edmund and Caspian set out to bring him back to the ship but find no trace of him. Eustache has trouble communicating with the others but eventually does by nodding yes or no to their questions. He only remains a dragon for a short period; Aslan then helps him remove his unwanted dragon skin. In the movie Eustace discovers the body of one of the seven lords and decides to keep the newly found treasure for himself. Caspian and Edmund discover Eustace’s clothing and shoes on the dragon island and assume that something bad has happened to him. Eustace decides a smarter and modern way of communicating the movie by writing it out that he is a dragon instead of nodding to their questions. Eustace remains a dragon until the end of the movie instead of being transformed after a short while. Movie Notes •
