Title: Prince Caspian

Prince Caspian
  • CS Lewis

Prince Caspian Troubled times have come to
Narnia as it is gripped by civil war. Prince
Caspian is forced to blow The Great Horn of
Narnia, summoning the help of past heroes, Peter,
Susan, Edmund, and Lucy. Now they must overthrow
Caspian's uncle, King Miraz, to restore peace to
Narnia. Prince Caspian emphasizes education more
than of the other Chronicles. The Main Theme

Prince Caspian "Great Scott!" said Peter. "So
it was the horn - your own horn, Su - that
dragged us all off that seat on the platform
yesterday morning! I can hardly believe it, yet
it all fits in." "I don't know why you shouldn't
believe it," said Lucy, "if you believe in magic
at all. Aren't there lots of stories about magic
forcing people out of one place - out of one
world - into another? I mean, when a magician in
The Arabian Nights calls up a Jinn, it has to
come. We had to come, just like that." "Yes,"
said Peter, "I suppose what makes it feel so
queer is that in the stories it's always someone
in our world who does the calling. One doesn't
really think about where the Jinn's coming from."
"And now we know what it feels like for the
Jinn," said Edmund with a chuckle. "Golly! It's a
bit uncomfortable to know that we can be whistled
for like that. It's worse than what Father says
about living at the mercy of the telephone."
(How They Left The Island) "Aslan," said
Lucy, "you're bigger." "That is because you are
older, little one," answered he. "Not because
you are?" "I am not. But every year you grow,
you will find me bigger." (The Return of the

"Do you mark all this well, King Caspian?" "I do
indeed, Sir," said Caspian. "I was wishing that I
came of a more honorable lineage." "You come of
the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve," said Aslan. "And
that is both honor enough to erect the head of
the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the
shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth. Be
content." (Aslan Makes a door in the Air)
Prince Caspian "I say, Peter," whispered Edmund.
"Look at those carvings on the walls. Don't they
look old? And yet we're older than that. When we
were last here, they hadn't been made." "Yes,"
said Peter. "That makes one think." (Sorcery and
Sudden Vengeance) "I am confounded," said
Reepicheep to Aslan. "I am completely out of
countenance. I must crave your indulgence for
appearing in this unseemly fashion." "It becomes
you very well, Small One," said Aslan. "All the
same," replied Reepicheep, "if anything could be
done... Perhaps her Majesty?" and here he bowed
to Lucy. "But what do you want with a tail?"
asked Aslan. "Sir," said the Mouse, "I can eat
and sleep and die for my King without one. But a
tail is the honor and glory of a Mouse." "I have
sometimes wondered, friend," said Aslan, "whether
you do not think too much about your honor."
"Highest of all High Kings," said Reepicheep,
"permit me to remind you that a very small size
has been bestowed on us Mice, and if we did not
guard our dignity, some (who weigh worth by
inches) would allow themselves very unsuitable
pleasantries at our expenses. That is why I have
been at some pains to make it known that no one
who does not wish to feel this sword as near his
heart as I can reach shall talk in my presence
about Traps or Toasted Cheese or Candles no, Sir
- not the tallest fool in Narnia!" (Aslan Makes
a door in the Air)
NarnianPrincess had the opportunity to interview
C.S. Lewis' stepson Douglas Gresham about the
progress on Prince Caspian. It's a very fun and
entertaining read, and we'd like to thank Mr.
Gresham for taking the time out of his busy
schedule to answer some questions that we've all
had regarding the production. Hello NarniaFans!
This is NarnianPrincess and I had the opportunity
to interview Douglas Gresham about Prince
Caspian. I tried to ask questions that you all
had asked on the forum and such, and I really
hope that you enjoying reading it!
-) At what stage is Prince
Caspian right now? Douglas Gresham We are
pretty well advanced in pre-production with most
conceptual realisation about done and a lot of
pre-vis animatic being done. Location choices are
about settled. Set design is under way and
casting is well advanced in other words we are
pretty sure what the movie will look
like. When will you find out who
is playing Caspian? Douglas Gresham Well that
is very hard to estimate, but we are down to a
pretty short list now I am told. I am off to
Prague tomorrow to attend some meetings at which
this question will be further addressed. NarniaFa When will filming begin? Douglas
Gresham We hope to start filming in
February. Can you tell us where
Caspian will be filmed? Douglas Gresham Some of
our filming will be done in New Zealand, and some
in the Czech Republic, there may well be bits and
pieces done elsewhere as well.
What is your favorite part of the book? Douglas
Gresham I think that the first meetings of
Caspian with all the "Old Narnians" are some of
the most charming and exciting scenes in the
book. How closely will the movie
adhere to the book? Douglas Gresham As closely
as we can manage and yet still have a really
exciting and beautiful movie.
Are you, or would you consider, using any
Americans in the movie? Douglas Gresham We are
not particular about the nationality's of our
cast as long as they can look and sound right for
the roles they have to play, but that might tend
to limit Americans pretty much in the Narnian
Chronicles. Will, Anna, Skandar
and Georgie are returning to play the Pevensies,
are any other actors coming back from
LWW? Douglas Gresham Let's see, Liam Neeson
will be back as the voice of Aslan, but as we are
about 1300 years later in Narnian time it might
be a bit difficult to bring back anybody
else. What is the main message
that you think Jack (C.S. Lewis) wanted Caspian
to illustrate? Douglas Gresham Prince Caspian
is about a return to truth and justice after a
centuries long corruption. Jack was also trying
to illustrate some of the most important personal
and interpersonal qualities that we need to have
as individuals. If Jack wanted
the books to be chronological, why are you making
the movies in the original sequence? Douglas
Gresham Well we aren't really, and in any case
the order in which the books are read does not
necessarily bear any relationship to how the
movies should be made. We are making the movies
in the most logically consistent order for
filming. With Prince Caspian following The Lion,
The Witch and The Wardrobe, we have continuity of
casting with the four children, and if we follow
Prince Caspian with The Voyage of The Dawn
Treader we will still have two of them. This
gives us a trilogy of movies with a constant
character thread, and then Eustace (introduced in
VDT) and Jill, a new character would appear in
The Silver Chair. After that we'll
see. There are discussions on
the forum about Johnny Depp or Orlando Bloom
playing Caspian, will you please negate
that? Douglas Gresham Wouldn't they both be a
bit old for the role? After all, how old do you
think Caspian is? My note, I think Caspian
should be 13-14ish. -NP Will
Henry Gregson-Williams be composing the
score? Douglas Gresham Yes I think Harry will
be back with us on this one at least. NarniaFans.
com What do you want people to get out of the
film? Douglas Gresham Several things, first, a
great deal of enjoyment and excitement, and also
a realisation that the great historic concepts so
prevalent in the 19th century and before, such
things as honour, loyalty, commitment, personal
responsibility, courage, duty, honesty and
chivalry to name but a few, are important and
although they were more or less discarded in the
20th century, they are vital to the success of
the societies of Man and we need to get them
back. Also an understanding of the value of myth
and fantasy, and the great delight of
imagination. In the last film,
you had a cameo as a radio announcer. Do you have
a cameo in Caspian? Douglas Gresham Hah, wait
and see. -) How do you think
Caspian will compare to LWW? Douglas Gresham I
think it will be a faster moving and in some ways
more exciting film than LWW, and also there are
lots more Narnian Characters to get to know. I
think its going to be fascinating. It is our
challenge as film, makers to improve and raise
our standards of excellence with each succeeding
movie, but of course we did set the bar pretty
high with the first one. -) Blessings
all, Douglas Gresham. Thank you
very much for your time Mr. Gresham! -) Thanks
for reading everybody! NP
