It is unbelievably great that Walden Media and Walt Disney made the second story of the Chronicles of Narnia; Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis. I wanted to see it sooner when it first came out in theatres back on Friday, but there was just too much going on for me. It was worth the wait when I finally got into see it. I heard a few people say they didn’t think “it was up to par” when comparing it to the rest of Hollywood’s stream of Sci-Fi & Fantasy flicks across the calendar, but “come on now, I think just about everyone in the English speaking world has at least read the books”? So, yeah, the plot was given away, but that just means that the eye candy makes up for the rest by filling in the gaps–right.
1,300 years have passed since the events of the last film in Narnia, but only a year has passed for the Pevensies as they are transported from a London underground railway station to an island in Narnia. How do they get to that parallel universe known as Narnia? In their absence, Narnia has been taken over, not by their old enemy, the White Witch, but by the wickedly scheming, General Miraz (Sergio Castellito). Miraz has driven the Narnians of old into the forest and is planning to murder the rightful heir to the throne, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes). Miraz is Caspian’s Uncle. During Caspian’s escape from Miraz’s men, Caspian blows on what turns out to be Queen Susan’s Horn. Caspian has escaped into the forests of Old Narnia. It is not long before Caspian and the Pevensie siblings meet…..Read the Rest of the Article.
So, it appears that the Chronicles of Narnia will continue to grace the silver screen, hopefully for the rest of the five or so stories, but a few more years to come anyway. For me it was worth the $11.00.
