Plot similarities between the J.R.R. Tolkien Lord of the Rings trilogy and C.S. Lewis Narnia stories was no coincidence. Both men were members of a literary discussion group known as the Inklings. Living trees that move and fight but also provide a safe zone, languages created for the legendary cultures within the mythology, rescues from towers by flying creatures are a few examples.

Where sky and water meet,/ Where the waves grow sweet/Doubt not, Reepicheep,/ To find all you seek/ There is the utter East.

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian and the Voyage of the Dawn Treader (1989) Well this was one of the hardest parts of the book series for me to read and even as a motion picture it was kind of slow. I think all the children did a better job performing in this movie than in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe. The animated effects were of greater quality in this installment of the miniseries as well. Again the filmmakers were very true to the story penned by Lewis and deserved commendation for that. Again my kids enjoyed the story but since it was painfully slow and at times the film didn't hold their attention quite the same as The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
