Feature: Prince Caspian
The battle is on! Can the latest of the Narnia film adaptations continue to hold the interest and loyalty of audiences? Starburst spoke to director/co-writer Andrew Adamson
CS Lewis fans everywhere had high expectations for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, and Andrew Adamson’s big-screen version of the story clearly pleased most of the Lewis and Narnia faithful. Now he’s back with the second chapter in the saga, The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. In it, the Pevensie children (William Moseley, Anna Popplewell, Georgie Henley and Skandar Keynes) return to Narnia. It’s a year to them, but 1,300 years in Narnian time, and much has happened. The villainous Miraz now rules, but a young hero, Prince Caspian (Ben Barnes), stands ready to take him on. Starburst recently caught up with Adamson, who talked about the challenges of making Prince Caspian, his decision to relinquish the directorial baton to Michael Apted (who’ll call the shots on The Voyage of the Dawn Treader), and his involvement in the upcoming feature Tortoise and Hippo.
How surprised were you by just how big a hit The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe turned into?
What were the major challenges in bringing Prince Caspian to the screen?
Much of your cast from the first film is back for the sequel. How have the kids grown both physically and as actors between the films? And what did your key newcomer, Ben Barnes, bring to the table as Prince Caspian?
