Walt Disney Pictures has released the teaser one-sheet for "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian," set for release on May 16, 2008. The second film based on the classic book series stars Ben Barnes as Prince Caspian and Liam Neeson as the voice of Aslan.
As one of the more character driven stories of the series, Caspian holds a number of adaptation challenges for the filmmakers. Not the least of which entails bringing one of my favorite characters to life: Reepicheep the Mouse.
While nearly every main character of the series exhibits traits of personal honor, valor and courage, Reepicheep holds each of these qualities almost to a fault. In fact, the little warrior may well have received that last statement as an insult, and challenged me to a duel, were he real.
The last film did rather well in terms of adaptation, though the finished cut massacred one of the more poignant lines from the book (who said anything about safe? Of course he isn’t safe—but he’s good). So I can only hope that a little moment involving Reepicheep’s tail survives the transition. Few better examples of solidarity exist in literature.
