The Chronicles Of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Director Andrew Adamson (Shrek) once again takes the helm for this, the second film in The Chronicles of Narnia, based on the series of books by C.S. Lewis. William Mosley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keyes and Georgie Henley reprise their roles as the four Pevensie children. This is a far darker and more savage Narnia than that depicted in the first film, ‘The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe’. It is a year later in the Pevensies’ time. In Narnia, centuries have passed. The castle at Cair Paravel lies in ruins. The trees no longer dance, the bears don’t talk, and the Old Narnians hide out in the woods, praying that one day they will recover their land from the godless, tyrannical Telmarines.
Prince Caspian, played by the dashing Ben Barnes (Stardust) is the rightful heir to the throne, but his position is threatened by his power-hungry uncle, King Miraz (Sergio Castlellitto). There are epic battles as the Pevensies and Prince Caspian lead the Narnians on a remarkable journey to restore peace and glory to their enchanted land. There are also some scene-stealing creatures, notably the swashbuckling mouse, Reepicheep (enthusiastically voiced by Eddie Izzard), and the grumpy dwarf, Trumpkin (Peter Dinklage – Underdog).
Such is the success of these first two Narnia films that many of the characters are set to return in ‘The Voyage of the Dawn Treader’, some time in 2010. Prince Caspian is a breathtaking 2 ½ hour long adventure, filled with imagination, courage, joy and humour that the whole family will want to watch again and again. The DVD also features an audio commentary with director Andrew Adamson and actors.
