Trivia

Nikabrik in this film is a descendant of Ginaarbrik from the previous film, and wears the family ring. This detail is not in the C.S. Lewis writings; it is a retcon by the filmmakers. They named Ginaarbrik (who had simply been "the Dwarf" in the book) and gave him the familial connection, after noting the similarities between the two dwarrow from different time periods.

Goofs

When Caspian enters Miraz's room at night, during the castle raid, the camera pulls out to a shot where Caspian is standing over Miraz in bed. A camera shadow is visible on Caspian's shoulder. See more »

Quotes

Prince Caspian: Why did you never tell me about my father?
Doctor Cornelius: My mother was a Black Dwarf from the Northern Mountains. I've risked my life all these years so that, one day, you might be a better king than those before you.
Prince Caspian: Then I have failed you.
Doctor Cornelius: Everything I told you, everything I didn't, it was only because I believe in you. You have a chance to become the most noble contradiction in history - the Telmarine who saved Narnia.

Simply amazing
14 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to be invited to a screening in Washington, DC prior to release. This production has what it takes. Great production, true to the story line, lots of nail biting and fascinating.

It never felt like it was over two hours. I'd have to say that Walden did an amazing job of staying true to the storyline and that Disney's magic is back. I will recommend this movie and absolutely plan on adding the DVD to my library when it comes out. I may even go and pay to see it again.

The only recommendation I have is to continue with the other 5 books. I've seen every one of the productions of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, and it took Disney to make it right. Now they've continued with Prince Caspian, and I'm anything BUT disappointed. As long as the storyline and production keep improving, it can only get better.
