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.
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
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 caught this as a screener and am so happy I did. Whether or not you read the books you'll probably like this if you're into this genre. It's got a bit of something for most everyone; even a little romance.
I found the CGI better than the first. The writers captured the significant parts of the storyline and included some comic relief. There were definitely moments of achieved catharsis with the audience. The actors and actresses seemed to be much more at ease in their roles than the first one and exuded the characteristics of each of the roles well.
I wouldn't recommend little kiddos seeing this because of the violence (no blood just some obvious fighting) however I don't understand why most parents take their kids to a movie I (an adult) would watch. When I was a kid a Minotaur would have given me nightmares for weeks.
Those around me liked it even more than I did. There were maybe a couple of points where they didn't clearly portray the tone of the group or a characters attitude; but that's young acting maybe. All in all, really well done.
