Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian

Has anyone watched this? It isn't on our theaters yet but I really would love to watch this movie after The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

I liked the Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe, too. You can't go wrong with animals in epic-type battle scenes. :) We almost saw the "Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" this weekend but decided to stay in and watch a movie. Do you know if Prince Caspian is based on a book like the first film, or was it written so there could be a sequel?

I read a newspaper yesterday on the interview of the actor who played Prince Caspian. Apparently, 1300 years later since the Pevensie siblings left, another tyrant appeared and is shoving all the animals out of the kingdom. That's what I read at least so definitely a sequel to The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe.

Thanks, Lupin. I knew from the title that the movie was a sequel, but I was wondering whether it was based on a book that was a "sequel" to the original book that the original movies was based off of.

So they did away with all of the characters and are starting from scratch, aye? I guess it is a sequel in title only.

There are 7 books in the series. all writen by cs. lewis.
for some reason the "Lion which and wardrobe" was the second book "and i think "prince caspian" was forth. so they are not really filming the movies in the order of the books

Thanks for the info, meatpuppet. I think the fact that it's based off a book bodes well for it, though that's not to say a sequel created for a sequel's sake can't be great.

I've heard the new movie is better than the first one was. I thought the first one was decent, but I'm a huge fan of Lord of the Rings so it's difficult for any fantasy epic to even touch Tolkien's masterpiece in my eyes.

Plus, C.S. Lewis' Narnia series has some religious themes that I don't particularly agree with.

ive heard by dozens of individuals that LOTR series is based on the same spirtuality that Narnia is based on. i see it in both series.

The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe reminded me a lot of the Lord of the Rings... a group on a quest to save a land from an evil force that concludes in an epic battle led by the group.

I liked LOTR much more but enjoyed Narnia, too. I think I remember hearing that the Narnia books had religious themes to them, but I haven't read them so I don't know, and I don't recall recognizing any in the movie.

Actually, come to think of it, the lion being sacrificed for the sins of the little brother and then coming back as a spirit to guide them sounds eerily familiar...

In any event, I'm looking forward to seeing Caspian Prince. :)

C.S. Lewis has said that the Narnia series is an alternative universe where the role of Christ is played by Asland, the lion. A quote from Lewis:

"...[Asland] is an invention giving an imaginary answer to the question, ‘What might Christ become like if there really were a world like Narnia, and He chose to be incarnate and die and rise again in that world as He actually has done in ours?’ "

Tolkien's epic story also has some religious influence but is not as overtly religious in general and isn't meant to have a religious message. While Lewis' main influence was religion, Tolkien was much more influenced by Norse mythology.
