Narnia liberated at Liberty

The characters of C.S. Lewis's timeless fantasy come to life once again in this newest instalment of the "Chronicles of Narnia" series "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian" released at Liberty cinema from June 19.

The 2008 fantasy movie based on Prince Caspian, the second published novel in C. S. Lewis' children's fantasy series and the second in Narnia film series following The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe (2005) depicts four Pevensie children who return to Narnia to aid Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes) in his struggle for the throne against his corrupt uncle King Miraz (Sergio Castellitto).
Directed once again by veteran director Andrew Adamson, screenplay by Andrew Adamson and Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and produced by Mark Johnson, Andrew Adamson and Philip Steuer, the film reunites the original cast and creative team behind the blockbuster first film in the series. The cast includes Ben Barnes, Skandar Keynes, William Moseley, Anna Popplewell and Georgie Henley while Screenwriters are Andrew Adamson, Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely and the Composer is Harry Gregson-Williams.

The Pevensie siblings are magically transported back from England to the world of Narnia, where a thrilling, perilous new adventure and an even greater test of their faith and courage awaits them. 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.

Internationally released on May 16, 2008, the film with a production budget of $200 million has collected a domestic total of as of $126,680,764 as at June 10.
