Narnia has been conquered for several generations by a foreign human people, the Telmarines. The rightful king, the father of Prince Caspian, has been killed and his uncle usurped the throne. Caspian flees and finds refuge with the ancient inhabitants of Narnia, the talking beasts – which the Telmarines thought were long extinct.
The film can be seen as an allegory for our modern world, where old beliefs are mocked and despised. “Who believes in Aslan nowadays?” asks one of the dwarves (we should not forget that the dwarves have been the former allies of the White Witch). The few who hold on are praised – they are the ones who are strong in their hope and faith.
Like the first film in the series, “Prince Caspian” stays true to C.S. Lewis’s story and combines excellent visual effects and thrilling battle scenes with humor, heroism and strong morals.
