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.
It's Harry's third year at Hogwarts; not only does he have a new "Defense Against the Dark Arts" teacher, but there is also trouble brewing. Convicted murderer Sirius Black has escaped the Wizards' Prison and is coming after Harry.
A year has passed by since the Pevensie children stepped through the wardrobe. In Narnia, centuries have passed since the defeat of the White Witch. Now the foursome are sent back to Narnia to find that everything was destroyed and the Narnia they once knew is gone forever. They come to aid the young Prince Caspian, who is leading a group of Old Narnians to wage war against his malicious uncle Miraz, who rules Narnia with an iron fist. Will they succeed? When will Aslan return?Written by
Although this film was quite successful (nearly $420 million at the box-office, on a budget of $225 million), it was far from the blockbuster success of the first film. As a result, Disney declined co-production on the rest of the series. The next film in the series, The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader (2010), was co-produced by Walden Media and a new creative partner, 20th Century Fox. See more »

All of you.
I do not think I am ready.
It's for that very reason, I know you are.

The original theatrical version of this film was released by Walt Disney Pictures, but all television, video, and theatrical re-issue versions of the film are distributed by 20th Century Fox. As a result, the current version in circulation opens with a 20th Century Fox logo. This happened as a result of Disney deciding against its distribution deal when it expired in 2010; Walden Media sold its share of the rights to 20th Century Fox that year. See more »
I have to admit that I was somewhat reluctant going to see this movie because I thought the first was lacking in many ways. First of all I would have to say the characters where more developed which connected to the audience giving a more intimate inclination. Second there were more action sequences which lasted much longer than the first movie. Third the special effects were more realistic. Fourth the actors/actresses embodied the characters persona which kept you focused on the story line. Fifth there is more comedy than the first although I would stress it is infrequent. Sixth the stunning visual settings add an additional amount of realism. Seven although a bit predictable the combination of the above will keep you on the edge of your seat. I would highly recommend this movie if you liked the first but expected more.
