"Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" Synopsis Unveiled

by | June 1, 2007 | Comments

It comes as no big surprise to readers of the C.S. Lewis book series, but the official plot of the first "Narnia" sequel will involve all four Pevensie kids, a prince named Caspian, magical talking creatures and royal intrigue.

Disney and Walden Media issued the first official "Prince Caspian" synopsis today, which follows its source novel pretty closely:

"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, 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 children 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 and Caspian, embark on a remarkable journey to find Aslan, rescue Narnia from Miraz’s tyrannical hold, and restore magic and glory to the land."

"The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe"

What’s worth noting about this sequel to the mega hit that co-starred Tilda Swinton, James McAvoy, Jim Broadbent and the voices of Rupert Everett, Michael Madsen, Liam Neeson and more, is that this time around, the supporting cast is decidedly lower on star power. With the exception of returners Neeson and the four main actors (William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Skandar Keynes and Georgie Henley), the next biggest (no pun intended) players on board are Peter Dinklage and Warwick Davis (playing dwarves Trumpkin and Nikabrik, respectively).

Major new roles will be filled by Italian actor Sergio Castellito (as King Miraz) and Brit thesp Ben Barnes, who will also appear in this year’s "Stardust."

"Prince Caspian" is currently filming and is set for a May 2008 release.
