Lucy and Edmund Pevensie return to Narnia with their cousin Eustace where they meet up with Prince Caspian for a trip across the sea aboard the royal ship The Dawn Treader. Along the way they encounter dragons, dwarves, merfolk, and a band of lost warriors before reaching the edge of the world.
In his homeland of Alagaesia, a farm boy happens upon a dragon's egg -- a discovery that leads him on a predestined journey where he realized he's the one person who can defend his home against an evil king.
Upon moving into the run-down Spiderwick Estate with their mother, twin brothers Jared and Simon Grace, along with their sister Mallory, find themselves pulled into an alternate world full of faeries and other creatures.
The four Pevensie children return to Narnia, only to discover that hundreds of years have passed since they ruled there, and the evil King Miraz has taken charge. With the help of a heroic mouse called Reepicheep, and the exiled heir to the throne, Prince Caspian, they set out to overthrow the King, once again with Aslan's help. Written by
The Baruna Bridge location was the strikingly beautiful Soca river in the Slovenian mountains. After 9 months of negotiating red tape, the production were allowed to temporarily divert the flow of the river whilst they built the bridge. The authorities had already been considering this themselves due a landslide the previous year, which had harmed the flow. Once it had been completed the river was rerouted back to its original flow. 100 trees had been specially planted to tie in with the description of the location in the book. See more »
The children play on the beach upon first returning to Narnia, then are in Cair Paravel in the next scene. The wetness and position of their clothing is different, but that is because much time has passed. See more »
I must confess that I was somewhat disappointed and underwhelmed with this film. It chronicles the adventures of the four children/kings and queens of Narnia as they are transported from an underground terminal in London to the world of Narnia much much later after their reigns. This world is being oppressed by a group of nearby men, etc... I think you get the general idea. The story and script were okay. The acting was decent, but the film lacks the heart, passion, and fun of the first film. It has some very good fight scenes - particularly an evening raid on castles, but some of the special effects(the centaurs) look ridiculous. Tilda Swinton has a small yet "fun" cameo as the white witch and Liam Neesom again voices Aslan. The "kids" are all fairly good too. The villain Sergio Castellitto is the best thing about the movie with a dominating performance. Ben Barnes as Caspian - YAWN! What does Andrew Adams the director do differently here? Well, the film is just not as lovingly crafted as the first Narnia picture it seems to me. This one seems rushed in some ways and it just doesn't have the magic I felt the first one had. It is not a bad film but not a particularly good one either.
