Trivia: Prince Caspian

The film

  • Dawson Casting: More so than the first film. Only one year has passed in the timeline but three years separated the releases of the films. William Moseley was twenty one playing a teenager and Anna Popplewell was twenty. Caspian's age isn't stated but he's implied to be a teenager and Ben Barnes was twenty six.
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Trumpkin the dwarf looks an awful lot like Tyrion Lannister.
    • Nikabrik looks a lot like Willow. Reepicheep from the BBC version sounds like him, too.
  • Screwed by the Network: Disney's marketing of the Prince Caspian. Rather than release it in December as a family film (like The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe was), they decided to spend enormous amounts of money trying to sell it as a teen film and gave it a summer release, about a week apart from both Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull and Iron Man. It should have been kept in December, because that's friendlier to this type of movie, but to be fair, May has shown it can expand just fine (see 2003 and 2007). And Iron Man was hardly seen as a sure thing at the time. Basing the marketing around Ben Barnes may have been a dumb move, however.
