Trivia

Eight months were spent scouting locations, including Ireland, China, and Argentina. Although parts of the film were made in New Zealand, like its predecessor, the majority of shooting took place in Czech, Slovenia, and Poland, because of the larger sets available. The stone prop was flown from New Zealand to Barrandov Studios in Prague, Czech. In a remote Slovenian location, everyone had to be checked for ticks on a regular basis, since infestations in the cast and crew's hair were common. Because of tax credits, post-production was based in the UK to qualify the movie as a British film. See more »

Goofs

At the beginning, when Susan picks up a magazine from the news stand, it is apparently a December 1939 edition magazine. This is not possible, as the Pevensie children were evacuated to the countryside at the start of the previous movie, which (as it featured an air raid on London) could not have happened before September 1940, and it is quite clearly summer during the scenes at Professor Diggory's house. A few minutes later Peter mentions they've been back from Narnia for a year, meaning that it is at least May 1942 now. See more »

Quotes

Lucy Pevensie: [holding up one of her old dresses] I was so tall.
Susan Pevensie: Well, you were older then.
Edmund Pevensie: As opposed to hundreds of years later, when you're younger.

Pathetic follow up to the Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe
5 April 2008 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I caught this while on holidays but I won't give any extra details for obvious reasons.

This will most likely go down as one of the most disappointing fantasty films of all time. I think Lord of the Rings is going to always be the best and hoped Narnia would at least come close but Prince Caspian has really dropped the Chronicles of Narnia. The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe was great but not groundbreaking. To be fair this movie was based on what I think was one of the worst books in the series. It was good but not as good as any of the others. Books can be expanded but not in a way which makes it completely boring. The action is dull and not interesting even though there's more of it but the visuals have improved. I liked the kids in the first movie but now they are already on my nerves especially the actor portraying Peter who came off as a snobby, insufferable bully. I hope that when Harry Potter ends the Chronicles of Narnia will be there to pick up all the fans but they need to radically improve. At least Michael Apted is doing the next one. Need IMPROVEMENT!
