The enchanting characters of C.S. Lewis' timeless fantasy come to dazzling life again in THE CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: PRINCE CASPIAN. This time out, the Pevensie siblings—Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy—are magically transported from World War II era England to Narnia through a tube station near London’s Trafalgar Square, embarking on a perilous new adventure and an even greater test of their faith and courage.
One year after the incredible events of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” the former Kings and Queens of Narnia find themselves back in that faraway realm, only to discover that more than 1,300 years have passed in Narnian time. During their absence, the Golden Age of Narnia has faded into legend. The land's magical talking animals and mythical creatures exist as little more than folk tales to the Telmarines, a race of humans led by the merciless Lord Miraz. The mighty lion Aslan has not been seen in a thousand years.
The four children have been summoned back to Narnia by Caspian, the young heir to the Telmarine throne, to combat his evil uncle Miraz. With the help of a crusty, valiant dwarf, Trumpkin, a courageous talking mouse named Reepicheep, and a mistrustful Black Dwarf, Nikabrik, they lead the Narnians on a remarkable journey to restore magic and glory to the land.
Prince Caspian is the second of Lewis' seven-book Chronicles of Narnia series, which includes The Voyage of the Dawn Treader, The Silver Chair, The Horse and His Boy, The Magician's Nephew, The Last Battle, and the story that launched the series, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe. Published between 1950 and 1956 and long regarded as one of literature's most enduring and imaginative classics, Lewis' books have sold over 100,000,000 copies in more than 35 languages, making it one of the biggest book series the world over.
As the creative and artistic director of Lewis’ estate and the C.S. Lewis Company, Douglas Gresham (the son of Lewis’ wife, Joy Davidman Gresham, and her first husband, novelist W.L. Gresham) worked for over twenty years to bring Lewis’ books to the big screen. Following the resounding success of “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” Gresham is embarking on what he calls “the second chapter in a lifelong dream.”
“I watched that dream come true when ‘The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ exploded onto movie screens around the world in 2005,” Gresham exclaims. “I always expected the movie to be a delight and a joy to world audiences, but I have been somewhat humbled by its level of success.”
