The long awaited The Chronicles of Narnia : Prince Caspian has been in theatres for just short of two weeks, and let me tell you, was it ever something.
The voice acting was very good and I must say that I was particularly fond of the voice of the badger, Trufflehunter, voiced by Ken Stott.
There was some great comic relief from a sword-wielding mouse, Reepicheep, voiced by Eddie Izzard.
I was taken aback by just how few Liam Neeson’s lines as Aslan were in the film. For all of the hype I expected that his character Aslan would have played a larger role in Prince Caspian. I haven’t read this particular Narnia book and am unaware if portions of the novel were left out to keep the film to 2 hours and 20 minutes.
One observation I made as the credits rolled by on the screen was that there were no female voice actors!
The movie was male dominated, both on-camera actors and off, so it wasn’t a huge surprise to see a lack of female voice talent listed in the credits. I’ve heard that you need to have a certain number of lines in a film before you are credited, so it’s possible that there were female talent who provided voice overs but because their lines were so few, they were not mentioned.
