Narnia: Prince Caspian
"Narnia: Prince Caspian" brings back the four children to the world of Narnia a hundred years later to find its people going extinct and the next king in danger of being killed.
The story seemed to drag at the first part but it is important to set the context and define the emotional tone of the story. Overall, the second episode is in complete harmony with the first one if not even better. The music was livelier, the action parts more exciting, and the emotional aspects are more engaging.
The Narnia series, carefully written by C. S. Lewis, contain rich symbolisms that transcend time and bring out the "eternal." The role of Aslan's unfolds more meaningfully as the one who keeps the peace, order, and the harmony between the humans and the "other-worldly." As every human is in danger of losing his innocence, his invited to see things through the eyes of a child and recover what was kept hidden through the ages.
