Storyline

Young Prince Caspian of Narnia wonders and dreams about the old days of Narnia when animals talked, and there were mythical creatures and four rulers in Caer Paravel. But his uncle and aunt don't like to hear him thinking of such things, and plan to murder him and take his throne. Caspian's tutor, Dr. Cornelius manages to save him, and not only teach him about the old ways, but bring him into the real Narnia and introduce him to the real Narnia. But Caspian's plight is desperate, and he must use the legendary horn to call help from another world: Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Written by Kathy Li

Trivia

CS Lewis is often described as an "English writer", but in fact he was an Irishman who spent most of his life in England. The Voyage of the Dawntreader is perhaps the the most Irish influenced of the Narnia books, and not only echoes the Irish writer Jonathan Swift's "Gulliver's Travels", but also older Irish myths such as the voyage of St Brendan and the voyage of Maelduin, which are known as "immrana" in Irish.

Quotes

[quoting a rhyme a dryad used to sing over his cradle]
Reepicheep: Where sky and water meet,/ Where the waves grow sweet/Doubt not, Reepicheep,/ To find all you seek/ There is the utter East.

Very faithful adaptation, beautifully acted.
11 December 2000 | by (Harrisburg, Pennsylvania) – See all my reviews

I grew up with this movie, and it still means a lot to me. The books are wonderful, and this miniseries followed them all very closely. Prince Caspian and Voyage of the Dawn Treader were never my favorite books in the series, but these are certainly worth watching. The entire production is very loyal, and the actors are all wonderful.

Although, I cannot help smiling when I watch a ridiculously young Samuel West walk around in tights as King Caspian - that guy was Leonard in Howards End??? Well, he's a great actor, I guess! I love these movies, and whether you have read the books or not, it is a wonderful story that the kids will love.
