The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian
Walt Disney
Rated: PG

“Everything you know is about to change forever.”

Based on the second novel in C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia series, the second installment in the Narnia series is captivating, suspenseful, and impressive.



One year in England is equal to over a thousand years in Narnia time. The Pevensies are transported back to a Narnia that is unrecognizable as the place they had left just one year earlier. The story revolves around the four human children aiding Prince Caspian to restore Narnia. Amazing sound and cinematography. An action packed movie the whole family can enjoy (some scenes might be to intense for younger children). “Prince Caspian” is a darker movie with more action than "The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe". It's an action fantasy film about war with a message warning against going it alone.
