Anywhere is!
Hi guys, it's been coming to 11 years since I had watch the movie and read the book. So, here are my thoughts and comparison on both the book and the movie adaptation.

The Book

Like in many fantasy books like Harry Potter that I had read, the book have many twist and very unpredictable. The story also made several references with the bible, like when Aslan is about to be sacrifice, it mirrors the Crucifixion of Christ and the Resurrection.
Susan and Lucy are like the 2 Mary, when I heard that it was banned in certain countries because of this. I was initially surprised by this news.

The Movie

The film is 100% faithful towards the book and I love the scenery, the acting were superb and bravo to the actors themselves!
While writing this, it makes me want to watch the movie again.

On to Narnia!

Spoiler alerts, if you have neither seen the movie nor read the book, go ahead!

I miss you Susan!
Okay, I have read the book 10 years ago, many were not very happy with the last book called the Last Battle that Susan was absent, so here are my thoughts on whether if she is going to be in the final book if they were going to make a movie of it.

Susan should be in the Last Battle

As mentioned, I wasn't happy with the ending of the Last Battle. In fact, the book also came under criticisms from famous author like J.K Rowling for promoting sexism. I couldn't agree more!
Many fans took to fan fiction and wrote their version of the ending itself, so for my case I would personally think that Susan should be in the movie version of the Last Battle. If some lucky person initiate a petition regarding this, I will be one of them to sign up!

Susan should not be in the Last Battle

Unless if the petition is denied, then we have no choice but to watch the movie instead. I would definitely dislike the movie even more if she is not in the film, despite that she was mention in it by her siblings.

I was on the site The Lion's Call last night, and came across a Narnian 'Good Idea, Bad Idea' list. I thought it was quite funny, so I thought I might post some of it here.

Good Idea: Meeting Aslan
Bad Idea: Checking to see if his mane is real.

Good Idea: Visiting a newly-made world
Bad Idea: Visiting a newly-made world with a witch and your crazy uncle.

Good Idea: Wanting to send your children somewhere safe during bombing raids.
Bad Idea: Sending your children to a place where they have access to an evil witch, wolves, and talking animals.

Good Idea: Making plans to attack your enemy country.
Bad Idea: Making plans with children hiding behind the sofa listening to your every word.

Good Idea: Being friends with a donkey. (Puzzle)
Bad Idea: Being turned into a donkey. (Alas poor Rabadash)

Good Idea: Trying to reach Narnia through a wardrobe
Bad Idea: Trying to reach Narnia through a microwave.

Pull back...aim...fire!*twang...thud* the black beast fell to the ground. "Ha! And you thought you were invincible. I, Lucy Pevensie, swear on Aslan's mane that no beast of the White Witch shall ever get past me!"
"Lucy, look out!" Edmund called. She swung around, with her sword in the air and chopped the fuzzy beast's head off. "Ha! Take that! And tha-"

The door opened,and Alanna's big brother, Jacob walked in. The door shut and Alanna whirled around, and dropped the pool noodle. "Are you still playing that stupid game?"
"It is NOT stupid!" Alanna stomped her foot
"Yes, it is! Narnia isn't real!"
"How dare you say that!" she shouted. "Narnia IS real!"she said, sounding kind of hurt. Her brother noticed this, but decided to keep on going. "What makes you think Narnia is real?" he asked,, his voice a lot softer than the other times.
"Because I've been there," came the answer, that was barely a whisper.
"What? Nonsense!"
"But it's true!" Alanna insisted.

"One word, Ma'am," he said, coming back from the fire; limping because of the pain. "One word. All you've been saying is quite right, I shouldn't wonder. I'm a chap who always liked to know the worst and then put the best face I can on it. So I won't deny any of what you said. But there's one thing more to be said, even so. Suppose we HAVE only dreamed, or made up, all those things--trees and grass and sun and moon and stars and Aslan himself. Suppose we have. Then all I can say is that, in that case, the made-up things seem a goid deal more important than the real ones. Suppose this black pit of a kingdom of yours IS the only world. Well, it strikesme as a pretty poor one. And that's a funny thing, when you come to think of it. We're just babies making up agame, if you're right. But four babies playing a game can make a play-world which licks your real world hollow. That's why I'm going to stand by the play-world. I'm on Aslan's side even if there isn't any Aslan to lead it. I'm going to live as like a Narnian as I can even if there isn't any Narnia. So,bthanking you kindly for our supper, if these two gentlemenn and the young lady are ready, we're leaving your court at once and...

So many people have seen this movie and love it, I am one of those people. What makes TCON so good? Well many things, for one thing you have the acting, it is very well done. Also the computer generation, Aslan looks like a real lion, and not alike a stupid cartoon lion bob cat thing. Also the Christian faith behind it, it is just like Jesus when he died on the cross and rose again. (for those of you who are slow, that is exactly what Aslan did. In the first movie, Aslan died be the evil queen lady then he rose from the dead.) This movie really has an impact on Christians, they can really appreciate the Jesus analogy in the movie. If you have not seen this movie I highly suggest it. Expessially if you are a Christian.

The world of Narnia was finally destroyed some two hundred years later during the reign of King Tirian, son of King Erlian and seventh in descent from Rilian.
A talking ape named Shift constructed an elaborate conspiracy in a selfish attempt to change Narnia to his liking. By dressing a donkey named Puzzle in a lion's skin and claiming him to be Aslan, Shift began surreptitiously to gain control of the country, forcing inhabitants to do his bidding in the lion's name. He then made contact with the rulers of Calormen, inviting them to conquer Narnia for their mutual advantage. Calormene soldiers under Captain Rishda Tarkaan soon arrived, and by the time King Tirian learned of the ape's treasonous plans, they were well on the way to completion.
With the help of Eustace and Jill (who arrived in time to rescue the king from capture), Tirian attempted to rally Narnia and drive out the invaders, but the divisive effect of the false Aslan and the capture of Cair Paravel by a Calormene fleet rendered his efforts unsuccessful. Tirian and his remaining supporters came to a last stand against Rishda's army at the Battle of Stable Hill, where Tirian was defeated. But in the course...

Some people on this site think the Silver Chair will be the next movie.

I'm here to say it is not!
The next movie will be The Magicians Nephew.

Source: link

Fox (instead of Disney) decided that they will be skipping the Silver Chair and just going on to the Magicians Nephew.

I am very sad that the Pevensie will not be there.
I think another reason they are doing TMN is because many people say it is their favorite book after LWW.
Fox is hoping that TMN will have a better turn out than the Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

The heartbeat of Africa is strong tonight, the joyful and ancient rhythm echoed by bare feet and drums. Shadowed figures of all shapes and sizes dance around the light, singing and swaying with the flames. Their voices rise in crescendo with the drums, hands and faces lifting to the sky, higher, higher...and then swinging down again into the next verse of the wild song, the beat getting faster.

A young man with the wisdom of two worlds in his eyes looks on, humming along under his breath and trying to keep from trembling. He has never seen the Deep Magic so raw and undisguised before; not since he watched a Lion sing a new sun into existence and felt the weight of a life-giving apple in his hand, years ago, in another Place. A Place that is not so different from this one as he used to think.

The stars above join them in their music and movement, silent, but no less joyful; and all of creation - every universe - is connected in the rhythm of their Creator.

I wasn't expecting that...
Bear in mind I didn't make this up, I just copy and pasted it.
(WARNING: This is very long)

Synopsis

The four Pevensie children return to a wild Narnia, about a 1000 years after their previous visit. Aiding the rightful heir, Prince Caspian, in his attempt to overthrow his usurping uncle, Lord Miraz, the Pevensie children succeed in freeing the rightful people of Narnia and restore it – with the aid of Aslan.

Film in General

Compared to the first film (The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) directed by Adamson, around 3 years ago, Prince Caspian is a `darker` film, to be sure. However, concerned parents should not be put off by the action packed trailer. While many do die, blood and violence is definitely not focussed on – leaving the message of the dangers of war still strong, without, what some would consider, unnecessary gore.

CG usage and acting abilities has also risen favorably in this film – with a solid cast now used to acting within the world of Narnia. The children are believable in their struggles (personal or national), the new Narnians we are introduced to are engaging and the Telmarines are...

This is dedicated to Siberian Christmas and Conner, who will be getting married to each other soon! Congrats to both of you!! May God bless you in your new life together! :-)

“They could see that it was a tall girl, dressed in a single long garment of clear blue which left her arms bare. She was bare-headed and her yellow hair hung down her back. And when they looked at her, they thought they had never before known what beauty meant.” –The Voyage of the Dawn Treader

Starlight

He could never clearly describe how he fell in love with her. It was too wonderfully strange to explain; something that couldn't quite fit into human words.

All he knew is that when he saw her, he saw her. It was as though someone had pulled back a curtain and granted him a glimpse of something inside, behind and beyond what his five senses told him. Whenever she looked at him, he forgot all about her golden hair and slender figure...for what he saw in her dazzled him far more than mere physical attraction could.

OMG. Aslan save us all.
Numerous sources are reporting that once again, another writer has stepped in to write the script for The Voyage of the Dawn Treader movie. The newest choice will come as a surprise to many. Author Stephenie Meyer, the woman behind the New York Times Best Selling series Twilight, has been tapped to take the latest crack at the story.

“She can help bring a lot of fresh ideas to the table,” says one source. “She can also help bring in audience members. People know who she is far more then CS Lewis.”

“Lewis represents the ideas of the past,” says a second source. “Meyer represents the future. This is the perfect blending.”

There is a bit of concern that some aspects of her books, namely vampires, may find their way into Narnia. However sources close to Michael Apted and Douglas Gresham insist that both men will work tirelessly to rein her in properly.

“There will be no sparkly vampires in in my movie,” said Apted. “And Edward Cullen won’t be in Dawn Treader either.”

Susan Pevensie
In The Last Battle, Susan was the only Pevensie that survived the train wreck on Earth which sent the other children to Narnia after the Last Battle. Susan choses not to return to Narnia. Peter says that she is "no longer a friend of Narnia", and (in Jill Pole's words) "she's interested in nothing now-a-days except nylons and lipstick and invitations." Eustace Scrubb says that she said, "What wonderful memories you have! Fancy you still thinking about all those funny games we used to play when we were children," and Polly Plummer adds, "She wasted all her school time wanting to be the age she is now, and she'll waste all the rest of her life trying to stay that age. Her whole idea is to race on to the silliest time of one's life as quick as she can and then stop there as long as she can." So, Susan does not enter the real Narnia with the others at the end of the series. It is left unknown whether or not Susan's absence is permanent, especially since Lewis said elsewhere that "The books don't tell us what happened to Susan. She is left alive in this world at the end, having by then turned into a rather silly, conceited young woman. But there's plenty of time for her to mend and...

This goes out to all my fellow Narniacs who booed (or at least grimaced) at the infamous Suspian Kiss of Doom in the movie. And Dr. Elwin Ransom wrote this on NarniaWeb, so don't thank me (or hate me, depending on who you are) for the brilliance and dead accuracy of this parody. IT'S NOT ME.

In case you haven't figured it out by now, this is sung to the tune of "The Call". Enjoy, rate and comment, duckies!

The Wail

It started out as a feeling
And then our annoyance grew and grew —
As Susan and Caspian locked their lips
We knew the rumor was sadly true.

And then our screams grew louder and louder,
'Til they were a banshee cry:
Don’t let it back
In the sequel!
Because it's not canonical!

Just because the plot is changing,
Doesn't mean there won’t be a
Collective fan roar.
Now we can do what
We should have done last time:
Go online and start up a war!

bear with me, im about to go nuts criticizing Narnia fan fiction here. ok *deep breath* here i go... i have nothing against the fan fiction itself... i write some in fact, but some fan fiction stories about the Pevensies... are...well... let me put it this way.... IT IRRITATES THE *beeeeeeeep* OUT OF ME!!! im serious. there are a lot of good Pevensie fiction out there, but there are sooooo many stupid stories that deserve to be burned!!! ...except...well... you cant do that online.... you can comment your criticism but no one pays attention to that.... anyway... i just finished reading one retarded story about Edmund Pevensie. Edmund is my favorite character in the series so that's why i got so pissed off. The writer of the story put another character from our world in the Prince Caspian book, a girl. A sixteen year old girl, who loves to swear, sing songs about sex, and she loves to complain. Naturally, i disliked this character from the start, but in the story, Edmund "checks her out", "spies on her when she's undressing", and "makes out with her when she's naked". Disgusted yet? I was. The author of the story completely mocked Narnia and the Pevensies, making Edmund AND Peter...

Happy belated anniversary, mom and dad! You both know how much I hate romance, but this stupid plot bunny wouldn't let go of me. I kept thinking of how freakin' tired I was of Suspian, and how funny it would be if she wound up with that nerd in the movie, and how Dad is the nerd and Mom is the Susan...so, yeah. I caved. Pardon me if the writing is rough and the romance is awful; I've never done anything like this before.

So it is with much love that I grudgingly present to you this giftfic...

“I hope it stays clear tonight,” Susan murmured, glancing out the window as she swept the last of the cookie-dough crumbs off the countertop. A light breeze ruffled the lace curtains, mixing fresh air with the warm, sweet aroma that filled the room, and the radio crackled cheerfully in the background.

The kitchen was a marvelous place when cookies were baking.

“They smell so good, Mummy...”

“Mmm, they do.” She knelt down with her daughter to admire the golden-brown delights. “And look, Lucy! They're almost done. You're going to have a lot on your hands, guarding those from your...

All around her were dark, disfigured shadows, covered in red from the glare of the torches and the blood of so, so many... A rhythm thumped dully in her ears, but it was not a drumbeat. Rather it was a single, terrible heartbeat, pounding out a pulse of evil joy...

“Did you think that by all this, you would save the human traitor?”

She gasped and struggled, a sick feeling twisting inside her...

Aslan! Make me stop! I'm trapped! I can't do anything!

“You have given me Narnia forever...”

Aslan, HELP! Someone stop me, please!

“In that knowledge, despair...and DIE!”

NO!

Lucy bolted upright in bed, panting, feverish tears leaking from her eyes. Struggling to grasp the difference between Reality and Nightmare, she stumbled out of the mess of lacy bedspreads and silk pillows and dashed across the room to her mirror. She had to know it wasn’t real.

The wide-eyed reflection swept the damp hair out of its face and ran shaky fingers over arms and hands. Lucy sighed and the panic subsided slightly, but the last horrible image held her...

Barbara Kellerman as 'The Lady of Green Kirtle' and as 'The White Witch' from the BBC TV series, 1989 – 1990.
Some readers believe that the White Witch and the Lady of The Green Kirtle are the same person. So before you disregard it, keep in mind that it is a possibility. Their are arguments for both sides. First off, two witches are mentioned by name in the Narnian books, the White Witch (Jadis, empress of Charn, or the "White Lady") and the Lady of the Green Kirtle (or "the Green Lady"). Long after Lewis's death, character sketches appeared in later editions of the books that seem to indicate that these two witches are the same, but these are not according to the author C.S. Lewis.

Proof that they are they same person - Jadis was never killed until in The Silver Chair. She appears in three of the Chronicles of Narnia books. This quote is from the Silver Chair, it's talking about The Queen of the Underland. ..."That this Lady of yours must be a long liver too, if she remembers the verse as it was when they first cut it."... just like the White Witch was there when the stone table was. The White Witch is sweet and kind to Edmund at first, just as the Lady of Kirtle is to Eustace and Jill. And they both want to rule Narnia. Some think that Jadis is the last Queen of...

I became shallow and empty; more concerned about my outward appearance than my inward beauty.
Greetings, friend of Narnia, and thank you for coming to hear my story. I know people are anxious to know what happened to me; so I have decided to make an attempt at tying up all the loose ends for you. (And please pardon me if it’s a little rough. I wrote all this in a bit of a rush.)

My name is Susan Carmichael, though you probably know me as Susan Pevensie. But I’m happily married now, to a wonderful man that even my over-protective brothers would approve of...if they were here. We already have one beautiful daughter, who’s three years old, and another little one on the way. I am happy and satisfied with the life I have...and in case you are wondering, yes. I am still homesick for Narnia. But I can bear it now. I am at peace and content to wait here, in my world, until Aslan sees fit to call me Home. I now know His name in our world...and knowing that He is near me, even here, is a great comfort to me.

I wasn’t always this happy, though. I suppose you remember how my siblings and I once reigned as kings and queens, during the Golden Age of Narnia...and then how we went back a second time to aid Prince Caspian in the fight to win back his...

“But Nurse, I'm not...not...tired...” The five-year-old trailed off into a yawn.

The old woman raised her eyebrows and chuckled. “Not tired, eh? We'll see about that, young prince.” She reached down to where he sat on the rug among his toys and hoisted him up with a grunt. “Gracious, child; either I have the strength of a frog or you're getting heavier.”

“A frog!" he giggled, clearly delighted with the idea. “Froggies! Ribbit, ribbit, rib--” He ended in a small hiccup and blinked sleepily. Nurse chuckled again and lightly tweaked his nose.

“Speaking of frogs (whether they ‘ribbit’ or ‘hiccup’), one of these days I'll have to tell you about Marshwiggles.”

“What are...what are marsha-wiggles?” he asked, cocking his head to one side and putting a finger in his mouth.

“Not marsha-wiggles, Caspian. Marsh-wiggles. And don't you go chewing on your fingers now,” scolded Nurse, pulling his hand away with stern gentleness. “You'll make your pearly-whites go all crooked if you keep that up, and I highly doubt your tastebuds appreciate it as it is.”

[i]My dearest child,

Do you know how much I love you? Or how deeply I know you?

I know your name, your favorite pastime, your worst fear. I know what you love, and what you hate. I chose the color of your hair and eyes. I know the number of hairs on your head, the number of days you'll live, and every secret in your heart. I know every detail of your past, what you're doing, saying and thinking right now, and what your future will be. I know your deepest thoughts, dreams and desires. And I know the longing you have; the longing to escape and find a better, greater world. A world that is found within the pages of seven particular books you've loved and cherished and read cover-to-cover, over and over again.

I saw the hope in your face each time you knocked on the back of every closet in the house, and the disappointment when you walked away, shaking your head and smiling sadly; your mind telling you that it's only make-believe, but the aching in your heart crying out for the other place you know must exist somewhere...the place that is your true home.

What is your testimony?

Who are you?

What kind are you?

Are you an Edmund? Addicted and greedy for the sweets and pleasures the world offered you, perhaps you sought love and affection in the wrong people when you thought friends and family treated you harshly. Maybe you betrayed someone or something for the sake of yourself, for that pleasure or affection you craved.

And it was only because of Aslan's sacrifice that you were saved. By His grace and love for you, you are forgiven and blessed...a condemned traitor no more, but a member of royalty.

Are you a Jill? Have you danced on the edge of danger to impress someone or brought a friend down because of your foolishness? Did you ever find yourself so terribly thirsty, only to find that the stream has a Lion next to it? A Lion who wouldn't go away, who was not safe and never promised not to hurt you?

And then you looked everywhere for another place to drink and discovered there is no other stream. You were horribly afraid and wanted to dash away, yet you came...and you drank...and found it was the purest, loveliest, most...

Prince Caspian
The second installment in the Narnia franchise, adapted from C.S. Lewis popular young-adult fantasy novels, is slightly darker than THE LION, THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE (2005), which is not to say that the first film is all sunlight and daffodils. But it does end with the implicit promise that, thanks to the courage and cleverness of the Pevensie siblings, human youngsters who rise to the challenge of righting a world where it's always winter and never Christmas, all wrongs have been righted for the foreseeable future. CASPIAN is predicated on the less comforting notion that the price of freedom is eternal vigilance.

London, 1941: It’s been a year since Peter (William Moseley), Susan (Anna Popplewell), Edmund (Skandar Keynes) and Lucy Pevensie (Georgie Henley) made their way to the fairy tale world of Narnia, where they overthrew a wicked witch and became the much-loved kings and queens of a kingdom populated by fauns, centaurs, talking beavers and all manner of marvelous creatures. In the real world of war-torn England, they’re school children from Finchley, but they cling – some more than others – to the memory of their enchanted lives as warrior royalty,...
