A New Chronicle

A New Chronicle Begins
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is a fantasy film based on the series of fantasy books The Chronicles of Narnia by C. S. Lewis. It is the second movie to be produced in the Chronicles of Narnia after The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Andrew Adamson is the director, and he also directed The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe. Prince Caspian has already grossed over $56.6 million dollars, and it is ranked #1 in the box office at the moment. Filming took place in New Zealand, Prague, Poland, and Slovenia. I just recently saw Prince Caspian, and I thought it was AWESOME! The effects were great, and there was much more action and fighting than in the first one. I couldn't decide which Narnia movie was actually better because I liked them both so much, but I've heard some people say they liked Prince Caspian better. All you ladies out there would absolutely LOVE Prince Caspian just because of Ben Barnes and William Moseley. They were HOT! They made the film all the more better, but it's not just the actors that make the movie great. It's everything from costume design to special effects to sound. Everything in the film was great!

The Journey
Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), a Telmarine prince, finds himself in mortal danger when he finds out his Uncle Miraz wants him dead so he can become King. Caspian flees his home and stumbles upon old Narnian creatures like talking badgers and dwarves. Thinking he is in even more danger from the creatures he blows Queen Susan's magic horn. Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley) are all pulled back into Narnia by magic and find themselves lost on an island they don't remember. They soon realize it was once the Cair Paravel, their home, but now it is in ruins. Meanwhile, Caspian has assembled troops f loyal Narnians to fight Miraz. The four children soon find help from a dwarf who helps led them to Caspian, where they are in need of serious help. Peter, Susan, Edmund, Lucy, Caspian, and the Narnians, with the help of Aslan (Liam Neeson), prepare to make battle against Caspian's uncle.

William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes, and Georgie Henley have all returned to Narnia, and they do just a great a job as they did in the first film. Ben Barnes who plays Prince Caspian does a great job for just joining the cast, and Liam Neeson also does a great job returning to his lion character. Peter Dinklage, Warwick Davis, Eddie Izzard, Ken Stott, and Tilda Swinton all play the Narnians. Sergio Castellitto, Vincent Grass, Alicia Borrachero, and Pierfrancesco Favino all play Telmarines.
