The Pevensie children return in Prince Caspian: The Chronicles of Narnia.
The evil King Miraz has just received news. News which seems wonderful to him, and at the same time horrifying to everyone else in Narnia. After much time waiting and hoping, King Miraz's wife has finally borne him a son. This is particularly bad news for his nephew, Prince Caspian, who is the rightful heir to the throne of Narnia. With a son to carry on his own line, Miraz now wishes to do away with Caspian, and establish his ancestral reign over the kingdom. Warned in advance of his impending doom, Prince Caspian makes a daring escape, and when all seems lost, he sounds a magic trumpet which is said to summon help in times of great need.
Peter, Susan, Edmund, and Lucy spent what seemed like a lifetime in Narnia, only to be returned to England mere minutes after they had first entered the wardrobe that fateful rainy day. But while they haven't been the kings and queens of Narnia in a long while, they still have an intimate connection to it. One day, as they are waiting on a train platform, the Pevensie children hear what seems to be the sound of a trumpet in the distance, and the next thing they know, the platform is disappearing from view.
The Pevensies find themselves in another place, and know instantly that they are in Narnia. But where in Narnia, they are not sure at first. It is not until they figure out what the old ruined building in which they are standing actually is that they realize just how much trouble Narnia is in.
Can these children, summoned from a far off world, help Prince Caspian in his plight? Will Narnia once again welcome the high kings and queens of old, even though they are but children? Will good once again triumph over evil? The answers may surprise you.
Clive Staples Lewis, Born in England, was an author, professor, theologian, and Christian apologist. As a professor, Lewis regularly interacted with fellow authors J.R.R. Tolkien and Louis Carroll. Along with his many theological works, Lewis wrote ten children's books - the seven novels which comprise the Chronicles of Narnia, and his Space trilogy.
In the never-ending war between good and evil, The Chronicles of Narnia set the stage for battles of epic proportions. Some take place in vast fields, where the forces of light and darkness clash. But other battles occur within the small chambers of the heart and are equally decisive.
Journeys to the ends of the world, fantastic creatures, betrayals, heroic deeds, and friendships won and lost -- all come together in an unforgettable world of magic. So join a prince as he fights for his crown.
Performed by Lynn Redgrave
