Want to get a sneaky peek at the new Narnia sequel? Well, you’re in luck people… There’s a new clip online.
Happily, the witch and the wardrobe are absent from this instalment (we’re saying nothing about the lion – we don’t want to spoil anything for you), which means we’re in for a far more action-centric tale in which the young Prince Caspian (played by Brit newcomer and Empire pal Ben Barnes) joins forces with the Pevensie siblings to get rid of an evil king and restore the rightful heir to the Narnian throne.
The clip is fairly light on actual behind-the-scenes info but the film itself is looking suitably epic and fighty. Expect Lord Of The Rings-style scope in the battle scenes (albeit relatively blood-free, we reckon – it is Disney after all).
The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is gearing up for a May release. Check out this month’s issue of Empire for an exclusive interview with Ben Barnes.
I think that The Silver Chair and Dawn Treader will make the best films, the others will have to be scaled up as much of the plot is very slight. Prince Caspian is probably my least favourite, but I'm hoping the film version won't sink into blandness, like the first film. LWW started off quite magically, but got swapped in fake looking sets and CGI. More
Well i'm having mix feeling about this film becasue i didn't think much to the 1st one and this film look to be about the same even with the more fight sences, so if i do end up seening this film it will only be if i am bord i might be wrong but i wil have to wait to may and read the empire review before i book my place.

Seen this while in MGM Studio's in Florida last year, and i must admit the little extras to the clip they have added, make it look as if it will be as good as the first....can't wait.
If you want to talk movies try
..this looks fantastic. Especially impressive as Prince Caspian is probably the hardest book to adapt (excepting The Last Battle, which I doubt they'll even attempt). I would love to see The Horse and His Boy one day, as it's my favourite, but this will be good for now! More
I'm wondering how big the box office takings will be for the stories following Prince Caspian. The stories may not be as considerably "epic" to hold their own in the market especially "The Horse and His Boy" which I still haven't completed after 30 years of trying as it's so dull. More
