With the big screen adaptation of C.S. Lewis’ Christian
parable The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the
Witch & the Wardrobe making so much money that it is almost
unchristian, it was only obvious that the suits at Disney would push a
sequel into production as quickly as possible.
And indeed they have. Most of the principal cast of the first film will
return and director Andrew Adamson (Shrek) directed again.
The first Narnia movie was rather on the iffy side and while kids loved
it, one wonders
whether adults will be suckered into expecting a
Lord of the Rings-style action spectacle again . . .
The enchanted characters of C.S. Lewis's timeless
fantasy come to dazzling life again in this second installment of the
seven book series, in which the Pevensie siblings - Peter, Susan, Edmund,
and Lucy - are magically and mysteriously transported back from World War
II England to 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
