Books2Movies '08: The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

It's been about a year and a half since the last Narnia movie rocked the movie box office. Now, the Pevensie kids are back with new characters in tow.

It's been a year since the Pevensie kids: Peter, Susan, Edmond, and Lucy, entered (and left) the world of Narnia. Now they're back, and it's 1300 years since their departure from Narnia and everything is different. There's a new ruler, for one, and a new struggle for power in Narnia. The Pevensie Kids, have to help Prince Caspian, the future ruler of Narnia, stop his uncle from killing him and seizing the kingdom. With the help of the ever present magical creatures and talking animals: Peter, Susan, Edmond, Lucy, and Caspian, prepare and lead the creatures of Narnia to a battle to recapture their home.

The second Narnia movie finished too quickly for me. Even though it was one hundred and forty-seven minutes (two hours and twenty-seven minutes) long it felt like a few minutes passed before I was watching the credits roll by. The movie was fun-- just like the first one. However, it seemed that there were a few things in the book that wasn't added to the movie. I'm not sure about this but it just feels that way. Other than that, all was good. It was great seeing my favorite character, Lucy, again; and to watch how she, and her siblings, character development was portrayed on film. The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is worth your ten dollars and change to see. So check your local listings and set a time to go watch the movie, Then stay tuned for the next Narnia movie, The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, which debuts in theaters 2010.
