Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When the Telmarines are about to throw Trumpkin in the river, Susan shoots an arrow that lands near the rear of the boat below the steersman. As the camera angle changes and the arrow is now more toward the front of the boat, under the rower. See more »

Quotes

[Caspian, Peter, Edmund, and Susan all kneel in front of Aslan]
Aslan: Rise, Kings and Queens of Narnia.
[Peter, Edmund, and Susan stand up, but Caspian stays, head bowed, on one knee]
Aslan: All of you.
Prince Caspian: I do not think I am ready.
Aslan: It's for that very reason, I know you are.

Alternate Versions

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 »

Seven reasons to see this movie
16 May 2008 | by velvetstarsSee all my reviews

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.
