Acclaimed director Andrew Adamson (the Oscar®-winning SHREK, SHREK 2) embarks on his second Narnian film adventure from a screenplay he co-wrote. The characters of C S Lewis' timeless fantasy come to life once again in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN, the second motion picture based on CS Lewis' beloved series of literary classics.
Once again the Pevensie siblings are magically transported back from England to the world of Narnia, where a thrilling, perilous new adventure and an even greater test of their faith and courage awaits them. The wardrobe is gone...the White Witch is dead...and Aslan has been missing for over a thousand years. Now, Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy Pevensie are beckoned back to Narnia to find a vastly different world, where a new enemy stalks the battlefield and the land's kindly creatures find themselves on the brink of extinction.
One year after the incredible events of THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE, the Kings and Queens of Narnia find themselves back in that faraway wondrous realm, only to discover that more than 1300 years have passed in Narnian time. During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has become extinct, while Narnia has been conquered by the Telmarines and is now under the control of the evil King Miraz, who rules the land without mercy.
The four Pevensie children - 12 year-old Georgie Henley as Lucy, the youngest and the first to encounter the great Aslan on their new journey through Narnia; 16 year-old Skandar Keynes as Edmund, the younger boy who betrayed his siblings for his own selfish gain in the first adventure; 19 year-old Anna Popplewell as Susan, the cautious and practical older sister; and 21 year-old William Moseley as Peter, the eldest of the siblings - will soon meet an intriguing new character: Narnia's rightful heir to the throne, the young Prince Caspian, who has been forced into hiding as his uncle Miraz plots to kill him in order to place his own newborn son on the throne.
With the help of the kindly dwarf, a courageous talking mouse named Reepicheep, a badger named Trufflehunter and a Black Dwarf, Nikabrik, the Narnians, led by the mighty knights Peter (Pevensie) who is now the High King of Narnia, and Prince Caspian join forces to valiantly lead the battle to save Narnia from the tyrannical reign of the evil King Miraz. Thus they embark on a remarkable journey to find Aslan, rescue Narnia from Miraz's tyrannical hold, and restore magic and glory to the land.
The film was shot on location from 12 February 2007 for six weeks on both the North and South Islands of New Zealand, where locations again included Henderson Studios' sound stages as well as brand new sites on the country's alluring Coromandel Peninsula on the North Island. South Island locales included the isolated Haast River Valley bordering the Tasman Sea on the country's verdant South Westland coast, and forests near Paradise Valley and Glenorchy outside of Queenstown.
After concluding the New Zealand portion of the schedule in late March, the company relocated to Eastern Europe and the legendary sound stages at Prague's Barrandov and Modrany Studios. Key exterior locations in the Czech Republic included the Northern Bohemian city of Usti, the primary site of the film's epic climactic battle, and locales in Poland and Slovenia.
In May 2008 THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN movie tie-in EDITION readers can experience Narnia in a collectible edition featuring an 8-page, fold-out insert based on C S Lewis's own timeline conceived for Narnia.
