It has been one year. One year since Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy found themselves back on the other side of the Wardrobe. One year since they last saw Narnia, spoke to Aslan, journey through the story of The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. When they suddenly find themselves back in the wonderful kingdom they are overjoyed, but things are not as they left them. It has been one year for the Pevensie children, but 1300 years since Narnia lost their high kings and queens. Now the Golden Age of Narnia is long gone, and the Telmarines hold Narnia tight in their ruthless grip, while their evil King Miraz seeks to destroy the longtime creatures of Narnia and the rightful heir to the throne Prince Caspian. The magical world of C.S. Lewis comes to life once more in Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, the second film of the Chronicles of Narnia series. Join Peter, Susan, Edmund, Lucy, and Aslan as they lead a new band of Narnian Creatures and Prince Caspian on an unforgettable journey to restore peace and glory to their land.
They have been dreaming of Narnia since they left, hoping and praying they could return again. Now, a year later the Pevensies—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy—have all but given up hope. Then one ordinary day they were standing in the Underground station when suddenly they were transported to the beautiful shores of Narnia, just under the hill where they once reigned in Cair Paravel. They are overjoyed to be home once more. Yet, something does not seem quite right to the High Kings and Queens of Narnia. That is when it hits them. What was one year for them, was 1300 years for the enchanted land of Narnia. And what is more, it seems that their beloved kingdom, which they once reigned with justice and mercy, is held under the grip of a merciless, tyrannical Telmarine, King Miraz. Hearts breaking, the foursome set off to discover the truth. What happened to the kingdom they loved? The kingdom they helped save from the clutches of the White Witch? Who is Prince Caspian? Where are the beloved Narnian Creatures? Where is Aslan? Has he forsaken the land he sacrificed so much to save? Join with Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy as they set off on a desperate quest to redeem the land they once loved, to restore justice, and find the majestic Lion that captured their hearts in this second epic film Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian.
Much has changed since the Pevensies left the beloved land of Narnia, yet many things have not. The land is still as magical as ever, the creatures just as endearing. The High Kings and Queens still hold a special place in the hearts of the Narnians, their just rule and heroic deeds live on. Narnia still finds itself the battleground between good and evil, the evil just as bad as ever before. Aslan is still good. Aslan is still faithful. C.S. Lewis’ beloved second book of the Narnia series comes to life in Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, bringing valuable lessons and themes along with it. Sacrifice, perseverance, courage, and loyalty still lie at the heart of the Pevensie children, they still lie at the heart of the Narnian’s battle. Despite immeasurable odds they stand bravely against the forces of evil, clinging to one another for strength and hope. The sacrifice Aslan made on their behalf still burns deeply in their minds, and though he may not be present, they feel his faithfulness. Yet, Aslan is faithful, and he will conquer the forces of darkness—even if it may not be in the way they would desire. Narnia may have changed, but Aslan still remains, and the battle against evil can still be fought with courage, perseverance, and faith.
Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is filled with adventure, action, stories of courage, heroes to admire, characters to love, laugh and cry with. The beloved land of Narnia still whispers underneath the layers of oppression, and although Alan may not be visible he is still there, waiting to be found. This film, based on C.S. Lewis’ beloved book by the same title is sure to delight viewers young and old alike. Though Narnia may be 1300 years older, though Cair Paravel may be in ruins, though evil may once again hold the land in its grip, the battle is not over and the Sons of Adam and Daughters of Eve have returned. Join with Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy as they reclaim the titles of High Kings and Queens of Narnia, as they join with a new generation of Narnians to beat back the darkness in the name of Narnia, in the name of Aslan.
Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian has been rated PG by the Motion Picture Association of America for epic battle action and violence. This film received the “Family Approved” award for ages twelve and up from the Dove Foundation and four and a half out of five review from Focus on the Family’s “Plugged In”. As always, it is recommended that parents preview all content to determine what is suitable for their children, but the film Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is generally considered appropriate for most older audiences.
If you enjoyed the film Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian you may enjoy some of the other films based on C.S. Lewis’ beloved books. Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe—based on C.S. Lewis’ first book of the series—tells the beginning of the Pevenies’ adventures in Narnia. The third film (and book) of the series Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of The Dawn Treader tells the story of Lucy and Edmund’s continued journey in Narnia following their adventures in Prince Caspian.
Great action film with lots of adventure. I would recommend it highly. (Posted on 1/20/17)
Well done adaption. Great family entertainment, and also food for thought. (Posted on 12/28/16)
After the amazing book-to-movie adaptation of the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, everyone was excited to hear of another addition in the series. There were a few concerns as this was being done by a different production company (now Disney!), but once again, another delightful and epic Narnia movie was born.
Prince Caspian picks up where the last film left off as the Pevensies (now children again) return to Narnia and meet the great Prince Caspian. Still maintaining the same feel as the last film, Prince Caspian does not retread a whole lot of ground, instead choosing to open up the world of Narnia, giving us a better scope and feeling that this is an entire world. If your children enjoy the C.S. Lewis stories or just love a good adventure, I highly recommend the Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. (Posted on 7/29/15)
