Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy return to Narnia when a young prince uses Susan’s horn to call for help. Only 1 year has passed for the Pevensie children, but Narnia has aged over 1,000 years. The Narnians have been overcome by the Telmarines. And Prince Caspian’s evil uncle wants to destroy the last of the Narnians and become king himself.
The Pevensie’s are again faced with challenges to their morals and convictions. They have gone through a lot of changes since the beginning of their first adventure to Narnia, and their character has grown as well. But as pivotal decisions are made, huge mistakes can cost the lives of the few Narnians left.
Prince Caspian is a humble and brave young man, destined to rule Narnia. He is just and merciful, and has been raised to be leader that the Narnians need him to be. With a powerful message, this movie not only is dramatic and heart-felt, but has a deeper meaning that one doesn’t have to look far to see. Much more action-packed and suspenseful than its predecessor, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe; there is never a dull moment in Prince Caspian. Laced with a bit of humor and even a bit of budding romance, this installment veers several times away from the original book. But the changes are necessary to make a successful, longer movie.
A movie for all ages, Prince Caspian has made it to my list of all-time favorites.
