About The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian
The Chronicles of Narnia Prince Caspian is based on the classic novel series by C.S. Lewis and will be the second story in the series to become a major motion picture, following the 2005 release of The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Prince Caspian follows the Pevensie children – Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy – as they are summoned back to Narnia to help Caspian rescue the kingdom from his evil uncle’s rule and restore magic to the glorious land of Narnia. The live-action and computer graphic imagery film is being directed by Andrew Adamson (Shrek, Shrek 2) and stars many of the same cast members who brought The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe to life.
