Nearly a year after being sent back to England from Narnia, the children are back for another adventure. This time, in ” Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian,” the Pevensie’s return to a different Narnia. Taking place many years in the future from the last time they were there, the Narnia’s have retreated to the woods and are on the outskirts of extinction. The children must join forces with the Telmarine Prince Caspian to defeat King Miraz. A darker, more exciting film, Prince Caspian will deliver enjoyment for devoted fans and newcomers to the series.
With the Blu-Ray version of the film, Prince Caspian looked amazing on my TV set. Crisp and vibrant colors make the film pop and it’s really enjoyable to watch on Blu-Ray. After seeing the film in the theaters and now on Blu-Ray, the landscapes and scenery really jump off the screen much better. The sound is impeccable as well.
Besides watching the film in HD, the extras are also shown in High-Definition. Plenty of different extras on this featurette-only disc like the Sets of Narnia, bloopers, deleted scenes, and a great piece on Warwick Davis. The famous actor that always plays the small parts, from his roles in Star Wars to Harry Potter and now Narnia really gives you a great glimpse of what it takes to get into all that make up. I also enjoyed the piece on Peter Dinklage and his role of Trumpkin. There was at least a few hours of extras to watch and fans of the series will enjoy them all, not to mention it looks great in high definition! So this is something to definitely watch after you’ve seen the movie.
The Narnia series improved on some things with the second film, but also I think the films could have gone darker than this film. I want to see more blood but that’s Disney for you. They are family movies after all I suppose. The Chronicles of Narnia prove to be entertaining films and I look forward to seeing the next one. For now, enjoy the first two films in Blu-Ray. Is there a better way to watch them?
