The Chronicles of Narnia gets bigger

MUMBAI: Prince Caspian, the second instalment of The Chronicles of Narnia which is due for release in the spring/summer of 2008 in the US and on 16 May, 2008 in India, is on an even more ambitious scale than The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (the first instalment in the Chronicles of Narnia series) and will feature bigger battles, more effects shots, more CGI creatures and some of the largest sets ever created for a Hollywood movie.

The first instalment, called Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe, grossed a huge $ 745 million worldwide, making it one of the most successful films of all time, in terms of boxoffice.


In The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian,the four Pevensie children – Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edward (Skandar Keynes), and Lucy (Georgie Henley) - are summoned back to the magical land of talking animals and mythical creatures, where they discover that more than a thousand Narnian years have passed since their last adventure and much has changed. The White Witch may be dead, but Narnia is under the sway of a tyrannical new ruler, King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto), and the Pevensies must unite with the young Prince Caspian (played by British actor Ben Barnes) in an attempt to restore peace and harmony to the once happy land.


The new film reunites the original creative team behind the blockbuster first film including veteran director / screenwriter / producer Andrew Adamson, screenwriters Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and producers Mark Johnson and Philip Steuer. "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" is the second installment of the seven book series. The film opens worldwide in May 2008.


The Chronicles of Narnia books / series have sold more than 100,000,000 to date and have been translated into 35 different languages.


The cast and crew of Prince Caspian came from 15 different countries, including the Czech Republic, New Zealand, the United States, Great Britain, Australia, Canada, Germany, Poland, Slovenia, Spain, Mexico, Italy and France. More than 9 different languages were spoken on set.


Director Andrew Adamson spent more than a year searching for the right actor to play the title role in Prince Caspian but cast 26-year-old British actor Ben Barnes for the career-making part just 3 ? weeks before shooting began.
