The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian - Movie Synopsis & Plot

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.

One year after the incredible events of "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," the Kings and Queens of Narnia find themselves back in that faraway wondrous realm, only to discover that more than 1300 years have passed in Narnian time. During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has become extinct, 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 will soon meet an intriguing new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian, who has been forced into hiding as his uncle Miraz plots to kill him in order to 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, 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.

MOVIE REVIEW

The first Chronicles of Narnia movie, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, was decent. It was marketed as the solution to the void that The Lord of the Rings left in its wake, and, frankly, it failed to live up to expectations. The movie was a children's movie, which was fine, but it stayed comfortably within its PG rating even when it promised magnificent battles and medieval, fantastic action. Beyond that, director Andrew Adamson had never directed a live action picture, and it was a risky and ultimately poor move by Disney to put him in control of such a gigantic franchise opener. The movie was clunky, not particularly imaginative and way too long for the story it was presenting. That being said, it was good enough.
