From Rotten Tomatoes:
Newcomer Ben Barnes on stepping into the magical world of Disney’s Prince Caspian.
You have to spend the time getting the story right because as amazing as the special effects might be if you don’t give a **** about the characters then your film won’t work. You have to make people care and you have to show all those different sides of the character and Caspian’s fairly well layered, I think. He’s an orphan whose father has been killed by his uncle and he’s ambivalent about being a leader. He really is on the threshold of manhood and it’s quite cathartic; he has to fight his own people.
At the end of the interview Ben Barnes also mentions that filming on The Voyage of the Dawn Treader was delayed because of the strike and the children’s school schedule but is set to begin this November.
Special thanks to icarus for the head’s up.
