The characters of C.S. Lewis's timeless fantasy come to life once again in this newest installment of the Chronicles of Narnia series, in which the Pevensie siblings are magically transported back from England to the world of Narnia, where a thrilling, perilous new adventure and an even greater test of their faith and courage awaits them.
Its one year since the childrens adventures in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe, but when the Kings and Queens of Narnia journey back to the magical realm (via a London Underground station this time, rather than a wardrobe) 1300 years have passed, the Golden Age of Narnia is over and the kingdom lies in ruins. Narnia has been conquered by the Telmarines and is now under the control of the evil King Miraz, who rules the land without mercy. The four children meet an intriguing new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian, who has been forced into hiding as Miraz, his uncle, plots to kill him and place his own newborn son on the throne. With the help of the kindly dwarf, a courageous talking mouse named Reepicheep, a badger named Trufflehunter and a Black Dwarf called Nikabrik, the Narnians, led by the mighty knights Peter and Caspian, embark on a remarkable journey to find Aslan, rescue Narnia from Miraz's tyrannical hold, and restore magic and glory to the land.
Directed once again by veteran director Andrew Adamson, the film reunites the original cast and creative team behind the blockbuster first film in the series.
More exciting than The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian continues the movie franchise based on C.S. Lewis' classic fantasy books. The movie picks up where the first left off... sort of. It's been a year since the Pevensie children--Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley)--returned to England from Narnia, and they've just about resigned themselves to living their ordinary lives. But just like that, they're once again transported to a fantastical land, but one with a long-abandoned castle. It turns out that they are in Narnia again--and they themselves lived in that castle, but hundreds of years ago in Narnia time. They've been summoned back to help Prince Caspian (Stardust's Ben Barnes, res! embling a young, cultured Keanu Reeves), the rightful heir to the throne who's become the target of his power-hungry uncle, King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto). And he's not the only one threatened: Miraz's people, the Telmarines, have pushed all the Narnians--the talking animals, the centaurs and other beasts, the walking trees--to the brink of extinction. Despite some alpha-male bickering, Peter and Caspian agree to fight Miraz alongside the remaining Narnians, including the dwarf Trumpkin (Peter Dinklage) and the swashbuckling mouse Reepicheep (voiced by Eddie Izzard). (Also appearing is Warwick Davis, who was in Willow and the 1989 BBC version of Prince Caspian.) But of course they most of all miss the noble lion, Aslan, who would have never let this happen to Narnia if he hadn't disappeared.
Prince Caspian is epic, evoking memories of Peter Jackson's Lord of the Rings films. (Some of the battle elements may seem too familiar, but they were in Lewis's book.) And it's appropriate for kids (Reepicheep could have come out of a Shrek movie), though the tone is dark and there is a lot of death, albeit bloodless. After two successful films, Disney and Walden Media's franchise has proved successful enough that many of the characters are scheduled to return in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. --David Horiuchi, Amazon.comSee all Product Description

That's the whole idea of "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," a superb sequel to "The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe." While it has a climax that goes on WAY too long, this movie shows us the darker side of C.S. Lewis' fantastical world -- with a heavy dose of Shakespearean villains, political intrigue, and some spectacularly epic battles.
It's been 1,300 years in Narnia, and the human Telmarines have invaded and driven the native Narnians underground. Aslan hasn't been seen in centuries.
As young Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) flees from his treacherous uncle Miraz (Sergio Castellitto), he's discovered by a band of Narnians, and accidentally ends up summoning the ancient Kings and Queens of Narnia -- also known as the Pevensie children. Though initially delighted to have returned to Narnia, the Pevensies are horrified when they find that their once-idyllic land has been nearly destroyed.
Caspian has been organizing a ramshackle army of native Narnians, but Peter (William Moseley) finds that fighting an organized, armed force is very different from battling the White Witch. And after a disastrous attack, the Narnians are facing almost certain destruction -- but Lucy (Georgie Henley) is convinced that Aslan can somehow save them, and restore the kingdom to Prince Caspian....
"Prince Caspian" is definitely a darker story than its predecessor -- good guys die, coups fail, the castles are grimy, some of the good guys turn bad, and a bleak, hopeless feeling suffuses much of the movie's second half.Read more ›
Chronologically this is the second Narnia story published, but fourth in the Narnia timeline, but that’s mostly irrelevant as it’s basically a stand alone, and while it helps to have seen ‘The Lion, the witch and the wardrobe’, it’s not essential. Full of dry, wry and often ironic humour with plenty of adventure, this will please many, but critics will have a field day with the numerous gaffs and errors. Others will be irritated by the ‘school production’ acting of the four human characters. The pace is exciting, the sets and special effects are skilfully produced and the battle scenes surprising and impressive for a PG rating.
The first disc opens to a language selection screen [also offering English audio descriptive] before going into the usual overlong Disney adverts. Thankfully this was the last of the Narnia movies to be done by them. The main menu offers play, scene selection, audio commentary, set up [languages and subtitles] and sneak peaks. I’m about 20 minutes in and the film hasn’t even started yet! The second disc is full of extras, making ofs, bloopers etc.
As a sequel of sorts this had an uphill struggle to maintain the ‘novelty’ value of ‘LW&W’ but does a credible job. Youngsters of all ages will be enthralled by the story and animation, but the older teenagers and the ‘20 somethings’ in between will probably snigger. Also, forget the book and view this as the fantasy it’s meant to be and you’ll find it exhilarating –if a little cringe worthy in places [lose a *], otherwise you’ll most likely be enraged especially as this is overlong for many youngsters and is much ‘darker’ than the first instalment.
If you want a screen version of Lewis' Prince Caspian then consider the BBC's adaptation of twenty years ago. This was achieved in just two half hour episodes while remaining faithful to Lewis' ideas and replicating much of the significant dialogue in which the main content of his ideas often lie. Narnia is too small for the big screen.
In fact the BBC's Lion, Witch & Wardrobe went a stage further in explaining that Aslan's reliance on 'the deep magic' (really law as used for justice, not for power and theft - of the child Edmund - as Jadis uses it) was a risk since its reliability - moreover the reliability of the Emperor-over-Sea on whose scepter and throne such a law was inscribed - had never been tested before.
Disney's Caspian has not been put to such purpose. Indeed Peter seems to have need of Lucy's magic cordial as he's suffering from amnesia; he's forgotten that Lewis wrote him up as leader of the four and is now a vainglorious vacillating 'hero' who has things 'sorted' (just one example of how the dialogue in the film approaches the pitiful).
The movie's CGI animals are a technical feat and the whole production is without question a fine example of the talents and professionalism of all involved in it's execution. Stylistically it is excellent, especially in the depiction of the Telmarines as a medieval Latin culture.Read more ›
