Posted May 3, 2018 10:00 am by Glumpuddle

Believe it or not, Disney/Walden’s The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian will soon be ten years old! Are you a defender of the controversial film? Or a sharp critic? Either way…

We invite you to discuss it with us at the Prince Caspian Watch Party on Saturday May 12 at 2:00pm EDT. NarniaWebbers around the world will synchronize their movies and pick apart every aspect of the film and book in a live chat.

Glumpuddle and GymFan from Talking Beasts: The Narnia Podcast will be streaming a live commentary on YouTube and leading discussion in the chat box. NarniaWebbers will also be invited to post Narnia trivia questions to try to stump the commentators.

Anyone can watch the chat box and listen to the commentary, but you will need a free YouTube channel to participate. If you already have a Google account, a YouTube channel only takes a couple clicks to create: 1) Go to YouTube.com, 2) Sign-in using your Google info, 3) Click your icon in the top-right corner, 4) Creator Studio, 5) Create Channel.

Hope to see you there!

    I would love to join but would like to know what 2:00pm EST is in GMT. I think this is a brilliant idea.

    • Glumpuddle says:

      GMT is 4 hours ahead of EST.

      So, the Watch Party will begin at 6:00pm GMT on May 12.

      • AJAiken says:

        I’m confused about the difference between EST and EDT – I’m getting a different result for GMT (7pm) when I convert the time online. I’m assuming EST is what New York is in?

      • AJAiken says:

        Actually, I realise I was assuming the UK was in GMT right now but it isn’t. For me, the time zone is GMT+1.

  • Traveler to the Real Narnia says:

    Will the commentary be available afterwards for those who are busy during the live portion? I would love to see the commentary, but I’m not sure yet if I will be available at that time.

    Whooo! I’m not working, so I can probably partake.

  • Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

    This is the most exciting news I’ve heard all day!!!
    I’m just curious, with live stream, do you need to create a YouTube channel to participate? I have a Google and normal YouTube account but the site doesn’t let you comment on normal videos without a channel. Otherwise I’ll need to create one just for this:)

    Looking at these stills, I’ve forgotten how gorgeous looking this movie is. Beautiful production design, cinematography, costumes (teen actors/actresses). I remember watching this movie on opening weekend May 2008 when I was a kid – and feeling slightly sick from all the violent battle scense – and all the popcorn . That clouded my memories of all the funny, warm moments Prince Caspian has as well.

    • Reepicheep775 says:

      Same with me. Completely aside from any adaptation issues I might have, it really is a gorgeous looking film.

  • ChristianMan17 says:

    I’m doing an artwork of Queen Susan’s Horn to honor the tenth year anniversary of this movie. It’s a shame I can’t show it to u guys here.

  • Mscottster says:

    The only thing I liked about this movie was the White Witch scene, I loved the score, acting, everything about it. I also liked how the fact that the Greek god of Wine was taken out of it. I hated the part of the book. J.R.R. Tolkien called him out on it. Otherwise this movie was not much better than Dawn Treader.

    • Col. Klink says:

      I thought the part with the god of wine, where they break up the schools was the funniest part of the book. And he was involved with the most heartwarming part of the book, the part with Caspian’s nurse.

      Do you object to him because he’s not true to mythology? (I believe that was Tolkien’s objection.) If so, why do you like Narnia at all? The fauns and centaurs are all pretty different from their classical portrayals. I’m not trying to start a fight. I just think it’s worth discussing.

      • Keeper of Lantern Waste says:

        I think Tolkien’s problem was the "mixed" mythologies? Like Lewis had Roman fauns and Greek sayters (centurs were included in both mythologies but Narnia’s seem closer the Greek Chiron) The wine god was the Roman name I believe. The dwarfs seem modeled off of classic Norse mythos. Lewis also had creatures like Dufflepuds and Marshwiggles created specifically for Narnia (which I personally prefer as they give Narnia a more specific feel than a lot of modern "Generic fantasy").

        I am currently reading LOTR for the first time but I believe his were all Norse based?

  • narnia fan 7 says:

    Looks like I’m going to be busy of Saturday, so I probably won’t be able to take part in the watch party. I was really looking forward to it. Oh well.

  • Aslan says:

    It was a fine movie overall, I think. However, I do believe the creators ruined the characters of Peter, Caspian, and Susan. And that ridiculous romance was, well… ridiculous.

  • Telmarine says:

    Prince Caspian is my favorite Narnia movie. It is gritty, emotional, and outside of the romance between Caspian and Susan I was OK with the modifications from the book to the movie.
