The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is the 2008 much anticipated second film in the fantasy franchise based on the classic childrens' book series by C.S Lewis, and is now available on Netflix. It has been one year since the kings and queens of Narnia have returned to their normal lives in England. Frustrated with the mundane existence of the world outside of Narnia, The four Pevensie children await a new school year, dreaming of returning to their magical world of centaurs and dwarfs. But Narnia is no longer the place they remember. It has been over a thousand Narnian years since the last time they were there. Men known as the Telmarines have taken over and the magical creatures of Narnia have been reduced to myths and legend. The young Prince Caspian is awakened in the middle of the night by his mentor, urging the brave prince to flee, for his uncle Miraz, the false king of the Telmarines, has a new son and will surely kill Prince Caspian for the rightful possession of the thrown. He gives him a magic horn that calls the Pevensie children back to fight the evil Miraz and save the Narnian creatures from their oppression.

    Quite a bit darker than "The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe," both in look and in mood. It is also in some ways more satisfying.
