The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian (2008) Script

Towels.

Oh...


Lord Miraz? You have a son.

The heavens have blessed us.

You know your orders.

General Glozelle?

Yes, my lord.


Five more minutes.

You won't be watching the stars tonight, my prince.

Come. We must hurry.

Professor, what's going on? Your aunt has given birth...

...to a son.

Come.


You must make for the woods.

The woods? They won't follow you there.

It has taken me many years to find this.

Do not use it except at your greatest need.

Will I ever see you again?

I dearly hope so, my prince.

There is so much more I meant to tell you.

Everything you know is about to change.

Close the drawbridge!

Now, go.

Halt! Halt!

A son! A son!

Lady Prunaprismia has this night given Lord Miraz a son!

Yah!


Whoa!

Which of you superstitious old women wants to spend the night in a cell?


He's seen us.

Take care of him.

No!

Mind yourself, love. I'm sorry.

Watch where you're going!

Wait for me!

You go to Saint Finbar's?

That's right.

I go to Hendon House. Across the road.

I've seen you...

...sitting by yourself.

Yes, well... I prefer to be left alone.

Me, too.

What's your name?

Phyllis. Susan!

You'd better come quickly.

Paper here! Get your daily paper!


Edmund!

Go on! Kick him in the face!

Ah!

Break it up. That's enough. Come on.

That's it. Get up.

Act your age!

You're welcome. I had it sorted.

What was it this time?

He bumped me. So you hit him?

No. After he bumped me, they tried to make me apologize.

That's when I hit him.

Is it that hard just to walk away?

I shouldn't have to.

I mean, don't you ever get tired of being treated like a kid?

Um, we are kids.

I wasn't always.

It's been a year.

How long does he expect us to wait?

I think it's time to accept that we live here.

It's no use pretending any different.

Oh, no.

Pretend you're talking to me. We are talking to you.

Ow!

Quiet, Lu. Something pinched me!

Stop pulling! Not touching you.

Look, would all of you just... What is that?

It feels like magic. Quick, everyone hold hands.

I'm not holding your hand! Just...


Shame you're not as quick as me, Ed!

Last one in's a rotten egg.

Watch out! Here it comes!

Wait a minute!

Come on, Susan. Hurry up!

Come on, it's lovely.

Edmund.

Ed? Ed!

What is it? Where do you suppose we are?

Where do you think?

Well, I don't remember any ruins in Narnia.


Wonder who lived here.

I think we did.

Hey, that's mine.

From my chess set. Which chess set?

I didn't exactly have a solid gold chess set in Finchley, did I?

Can't be.

Don't you see? What?

Imagine walls.

And columns, there.

And a glass roof.

Cair Paravel.


Wait. Wait, my lord. It is not what you think.

Then what is it?

We're not exactly sure.

Impossible.

I warned this council when it put its trust in Lord Miraz...

...there would be consequences. No.

We can't accuse the Lord Protector without proof.

How long are we going to hide behind that excuse?

Until every chair in this chamber is empty?

Lords of the council, my apologies for being late.

I wasn't aware we were in session.

No doubt you were otherwise occupied.

My lord?

Ever since the death of Caspian the ninth, you've behaved as if you were king.

Now it seems that from behind his walls even Prince Caspian has gone missing.

My deepest condolences, Lord Miraz.

Imagine, losing your nephew, the rightful heir to the throne, on the very night your wife has blessed you with a son.

Thank you, Lord Sopespian.

Your compassion is a boon in this troubled time.

I trust you can tell us how such a tragedy could have occurred.

That is the most disturbing news of all.

Our beloved Caspian was abducted...

...by Narnians.

You go too far, Miraz.

Expect us to stand by while you blame such a blatant crime on fairy tales?

What?

We forget, my lords... Narnia was once a savage land.

Fierce creatures roamed free.

Much of our forefathers' blood was shed to exterminate this vermin.

Or so we thought.

But while we've been bickering amongst ourselves...

...they've been breeding like cockroaches under a rock!

Growing stronger. Watching us.

Waiting to strike!

And you wonder why we don't like you.

Well, I intend to strike back.

Even if I have to cut down the entire forest...

...I assure you, I will find Prince Caspian and finish what our ancestors began.

Catapults. What?

This didn't just happen. Cair Paravel was attacked.


Don't suppose you have any matches, do you?

No, but...

...would this help?

You might have mentioned that a bit sooner.


I can't believe it. It's all still here.

I was so tall.

Well, you were older then.

As opposed to hundreds of years later... when you're younger.

What is it? My horn.

I must've left it on my saddle the day we went back.


When Aslan bares his teeth, winter meets its death.

When he shakes his mane...

...we shall have spring again.

Everyone we knew... Mr. Tumnus and the Beavers...

...they're all gone.

I think it's time we found out what's going on.

He won't stop staring.

So don't look.

Here's far enough.

Drop him!

Crows and crockery!


"Drop him"!

That's the best you can come up with?

A simple "thank you" would suffice.

They were doing fine drowning me without your help.

Maybe we should have let them.

Why were they trying to kill you, anyway?

They're Telmarines. That's what they do.

Telmarines? In Narnia?

Where have you been for the last few hundred years?

It's a bit of a long story.

Oh, you've got to be kidding me.

You're it?

You're the kings and queens of old?

High King Peter, the Magnificent.

You probably could've left off the last bit.

Probably.

You might be surprised.

Oh, you don't want to do that, boy.

Not me. Him.

Edmund!

You all right? Oh!

Huh!

Beards and bedsteads!

Maybe that horn worked after all.

What horn?

This bread is so stale.

I'll just give him some soup. He should be coming around soon.

I don't think I hit him hard enough.

Nikabrik, he's just a boy.

He's a Telmarine, not some lost puppy. You said you were gonna get rid of him.

No. I said I'd take care of him.

We can't kill him now. I just bandaged his head.

It would be like murdering a guest.

How do you think his friends are treating their guest?

Trumpkin knew what he was doing. It's not the boy's fault.

Ah!

Stop! Stop!

Hold it. No, no!

I told you we should have killed him when we had the chance.

You know why we can't.

If we're taking a vote, I'm with him.

We can't let him go. He's seen us.

Enough, Nikabrik!

Or do I have to sit on your head again?

And you. Look what you made me do.

I spent half the morning on that soup.

What are you?

You know, it's funny that you would ask that.

You think people would know a badger when they saw one.

No. No, I mean...

...you're Narnians. You're supposed to be extinct.

Sorry to disappoint you.

Here you go. Still hot.

Since when did we open a boarding house for Telmarine soldiers?

I'm not a soldier.

I am Prince Caspian. The tenth.

What are you doing here?

Running away.

My uncle has always wanted my throne.

I suppose I have only lived this long because he did not have an heir of his own.

Oh... That changes things. Yeah.

Means we don't have to kill you ourselves.

You're right.

Where are you going? My uncle won't stop until I am dead.

But... you can't leave. You're meant to save us.

Don't you know what this is?


You have quite a library, doctor.

Is there anything particular you seek, my lord?

I think I've already found what I'm looking for...

...in one of my soldiers!

What do you know of Queen Susan's horn?

It was said to be magic.

Magic?

The Narnians believed it could summon their kings and queens of old.

At least, such was the superstition.

And what does Caspian know of this superstition?

My lord, you forbade me from mentioning the old tales.

So I did.

I will say this. If Caspian does know of the Deep Magic...

...my lord would have good reason to be nervous.

First our prince...

...now his tutor.

If the members of Miraz's own house are not safe, are any of us? Lord Sopespian!

Those are dangerous words, Lord Sopespian.

But these are dangerous times, general.

One should choose his words as carefully as he chooses his friends.

How long until the bridge is finished?

Construction continues on schedule. That's not good enough.

I need my army across that river now.

May I suggest you contribute some of your own men?

I've only so many at my disposal.

A fact you'd be wise to remember.

Go to Beruna.

Take as many troops as you need. We must get to Caspian before they do.

"They," my lord?

It's time you learned your history.


They're so still.

They're trees. What'd you expect?

They used to dance.

Wasn't long after you left that the Telmarines invaded.

Those who survived retreated to the woods. And the trees, they retreated so deep into themselves that they haven't been heard from since.

I don't understand. How could Aslan have let this happen?

Aslan? Thought he abandoned us when you lot did.

We didn't mean to leave, you know.

Makes no difference now, does it?

Get us to the Narnians... and it will.


Hello, there.

It's all right. We're friends.

Don't move, Your Majesty.

Stay away from her!

Shoot, Susan! Shoot!

Why wouldn't he stop? I suspect he was hungry.

Thanks.

He was wild.

I don't think he could talk at all.

Get treated like a dumb animal long enough, that's what you become.

You may find Narnia a more savage place than you remember.

I can hear you.

I just think we should wait for the kings and queens.

Fine! Go then! See if the others will be as understanding!

Or maybe I'll come with you. I want to see you explain things to the minotaurs.

Minotaurs?

They're real?

And very bad-tempered.

Yeah, not to mention big. Huge.

What about centaurs? Do they still exist?

Well, the centaurs will probably fight on your side.

But there's no telling what the others will do.

What about Aslan?

How do you know so much about us?

Stories. Wait a minute.

Your father told you stories about Narnia?

No, my professor, he...

Listen, I'm sorry. These are not the kind of questions you should be asking.

What is it? Human.

Him? No. Them.

There they are! Run!

Now!

Oh! Ah!

Oh, no. Wait. I'll go.

Take it. Go! It's more important than I am.

Whoa! Uh!

Oh!

Get him out of here.

Ah!

Where are you?

Ah!

Ah! Hyah!

Choose your last words carefully, Telmarine.

You are a mouse.

I was hoping for something a little more original.

Pick up your sword.

Uh... No, thanks.

Pick it up! I will not fight an unarmed man.

Which is why I might live longer if I choose not to cross blades with you, noble mouse.

I said I would not fight you. I didn't say I'd let you live!

Reepicheep!

Stay your blade! Trufflehunter?

I trust you have a very good reason for this untimely interruption.

He doesn't. Go ahead. He's the one who blew the horn.

What? Then let him bring it forward.

This is the reason we have gathered.

I don't remember this way.

That's the problem with girls. You can't carry a map in your heads.

That's because our heads have something in them.

I wish he'd just listen to the D.L.F. in the first place.

D.L.F.? Dear Little Friend.

Oh, that's not at all patronizing, is it?

I'm not lost.

No.

You're just going the wrong way.

You last saw Caspian at the Shuddering Woods, and the quickest way there is to cross at the river Rush.

But unless I'm mistaken, there's no crossing in these parts.

That explains it, then. You're mistaken.


You see, over time, water erodes the earth's soil, carving deeper...

Oh, shut up.

Is there a way down? Yeah, falling.

Well, we weren't lost.

There's a ford near Beruna. How do you feel about swimming?

I'd rather that than walking.

Aslan?

It's Aslan! It's Aslan over there!

Don't you see? He's right...

...there.

Do you see him now?

I'm not crazy.

He was there. He wanted us to follow him.

I'm sure there are any number of lions in this wood.

Just like that bear. I think I know Aslan when I see him.

Look, I'm not about to jump off a cliff after someone who doesn't exist.

The last time I didn't believe Lucy I ended up looking pretty stupid.

Why wouldn't I have seen him?

Maybe you weren't looking.

I'm sorry, Lu.


Kill him!

Telmarine! Liar!

Murderer!

All this horn proves is they've stolen yet another thing from us!

I didn't steal anything. Didn't steal anything?

Shall we list the things the Telmarines have taken?

Our homes! Our land!

Our freedom! Our lives!

You stole Narnia!

You would hold me accountable for all the crimes of my people?

Accountable...

...and punishable.

Ha! That is rich coming from you, dwarf.

Have you forgotten it was your people who fought alongside the White Witch?

And I'd gladly do it again, if it would rid us of these barbarians.

Then it's lucky that it is not in your power to bring her back.

Or are you suggesting that we ask this boy to go against Aslan now?

Some of you may have forgotten, but we badgers remember well...

...that Narnia was never right except when a Son of Adam was king.

He's a Telmarine! Why would we want him as our king?

Because I can help you.

It's a trick! At least hear him out!

Beyond these woods, I'm a prince.

The Telmarine throne is rightfully mine!

Help me claim it, and I can bring peace between us.

It is true. The time is ripe.

I watch the skies...

...for it is mine to watch as it is yours to remember, badger.

Tarva, the lord of victory, and Alambil, the lady of peace, have come together in the high heavens.

And now here, a Son of Adam has come forth...

...to offer us back our freedom.

Is this possible? Do you really think there could be peace?

Do you? I mean, really?

Two days ago, I didn't believe in the existence of talking animals...

...or dwarves... or centaurs.

Yet here you are in strength and numbers that we Telmarines could never have imagined.

Whether this horn is magic or not, it brought us together.

And together, we have a chance to take back what is ours.

If you will lead us, then my sons and I...

...offer you our swords.

And we offer you our lives, unreservedly.

Miraz's army will not be far behind us, sire.

If we are to be ready for them, we need to hurry to find soldiers and weapons.

I'm sure they will be here soon.

These ones! And these ones!

Timber!

Get back! Watch your back!

Look out!

Steady, steady! Timber!

Perhaps this wasn't the best way to come after all.


So where exactly do you think you saw Aslan?

I wish you'd all stop trying to sound like grown-ups.

I don't think I saw him, I did see him.

I am a grown-up.

It was right over...

Lucy!

...Here.


Lucy, are you awake?

Hmm...

Why do you think I didn't see Aslan?

You believe me?

Well, we got across the gorge.

I don't know.

Maybe you didn't really want to.

You always knew we'd be coming back here, didn't you?

I hoped so.

I finally just got used to the idea of being in England.

But you're happy to be here, aren't you?

While it lasts.


Lucy.

Lucy.

Aslan!

I've missed you so much!

You've grown. Every year you grow...

...so shall I.

Where have you been? Why haven't you come to help us?

Things never happen the same way twice, dear one.

Susan! Wake up! Huh?

Certainly, Lu. Whatever you like.


Wake up.

Aslan?


Ah! Ah!

No, stop!


Prince Caspian?

Yes? And who are you?

Peter!

High King Peter. I believe you called.

Well, yes, but... I thought you'd be older.

If you like, we could come back in a few years...

No. No, that's all right. You're just...

You're not exactly what I expected.

Neither are you.

A common enemy unites even the oldest of foes.

We have anxiously awaited your return, my liege.

Our hearts and swords are at your service.

Oh, my gosh, he is so cute.

Who said that? Sorry.

Oh. Uh...

Your Majesty, with the greatest respect, I do believe "courageous," "courteous," or "chivalrous" might more befit a knight of Narnia.

Well, at least we know some of you can handle a blade.

Yes, indeed. And I have recently put it to good use, securing weapons for your army, sire.

Good. Because we're going to need every sword we can get.

Well, then you will probably be wanting yours back.

How much did they take?

Enough weapons and armor for two regiments.

But... there's more.

"You were right to fear the woods."

"X"? Caspian. The tenth.

I apologize, my lord. The blame is mine.

I know.

Tell me, general...

...how many men did you lose?

None, my lord. None?

They came like ghosts, in the dead of night. We never saw them.

Then how do you explain your injuries?

I asked...

...how many men were killed during this bloody Narnian attack?

Of which you were a fortunate survivor.

General...

...how many?

Three.

I apologize, Lord Sopespian.

Caspian is not a victim of this savage uprising.

He is the instigator.

It seems Narnia is in need of a new king.

Well, it's good you have troops, but we need some fortifications. Somewhere to train.

So? What are they like?

Malcontents, complainers, stubborn as mules in the morning.

Oh. So you like them, then.

Well enough.


It may not be what you are used to, but it is defensible.

Peter. You may want to see this.

It's us.

What is this place?

You don't know?


He must know what he's doing.

I think it's up to us now.


It's only a matter of time.

Miraz's men and war machines are on their way.

That means those same men aren't protecting his castle.

What do you propose we do, Your Majesty?

We need to get ready for it. To start planning for...

Our only hope is to strike them before they strike us.

Crazy. No one has taken that castle.

There's always a first time. We'll have the element of surprise.

But we have the advantage here! If we dig in, we could probably hold them off indefinitely.

I, for one, feel safer underground.

Look. I appreciate what you've done here, but this isn't a fortress. It's a tomb.

Yes. And if they're smart, the Telmarines will just wait and starve us out.

We could collect nuts! Yes! And throw them at the Telmarines.

Shut up!

I think you know where I stand, sire.

If I get your troops in, can you handle the guards?

Or die trying, my liege.

That's what I'm worried about.

Sorry?

You're all acting like there's only two options.

Dying here, or dying there.

I'm not sure you've been listening. No, you're not listening.

Or have you forgotten who really defeated the White Witch, Peter?

I think we've waited for Aslan long enough.


Shh.


Professor?


I have to find him. You don't have time.

You need to get the gate open. You wouldn't be here without him.

And neither would I.

You and I can deal with Miraz.

And I can still get to the gate in time.


Yes, I'm a mouse. Hyah!

Ah! We were expecting someone, you know, taller.

You're one to talk. Is that supposed to be irony?

Five more minutes?

What are you doing here?

I didn't help you escape just so you could break back in.

You have to get out before Miraz learns you're here.

He's going to learn soon enough.

We are giving him your cell.

Don't underestimate Miraz as your father did.

What are you talking about?

I'm sorry.

Thank goodness you're safe.

Get up.

Caspian? Stay where you are.

What are you doing? I should think it's obvious, dear.

Some families might consider this inappropriate behavior.

That doesn't seem to have stopped you!

But you are not like me, are you?

It's sad. The first time you've shown any backbone...

...and it's such a waste.

Put the sword down, Caspian.

I don't want to do this. We don't want you to either.

This used to be a private room.

What are you doing? You're supposed to be in the gatehouse!

No!

Tonight for once, I want the truth.

Did you kill my father?

Now we get to it.

You said your brother died in his sleep.

That was more or less true.

Caspian, this won't make things any better.

We Telmarines would have nothing had we not taken it.

Your father knew that as well as anyone.

How could you?

For the same reason you will pull that trigger.

For our son. Stop!

Stay right there. You need to make a choice, dear.

Do you want our child to be king?

Or do you want him to be like Caspian here?

Fatherless! No!

Caspian! Agh!


What is that supposed to mean?

We're under attack! Sound the alarm!

Men! Grab your bows!

Peter! Our troops are just outside! Come on!

Now, Ed! Now!

Signal the troops! I'm a bit busy, Pete!

Agh!

Oh...

Peter! It's too late. We have to call it off while we can.

No, I can still do this!

Help me!

Exactly who are you doing this for, Peter?

Come on!

Charge!

We're under attack!

Attack! Attack!

For Narnia!

Ah!

Archers!

Pick a target!

Take aim!

Ed!


Ah!

Get that gate closed.


Fall back!

We need to retreat! Now!

Go! Get her out of here!

Back to the gate! Go!

Caspian! I'll find him!

Go! Get out! Go! Get out! Retreat!

Follow me!


Give the order.

My men are still down there.

Draw back! Get out! Retreat!

Now!

Fire!


Run for your life! Save yourself!

Peter! The bridge!

Leave us! Go, brothers!

In the name of Aslan!


What happened?

Ask him.

Peter. Me?

You could've called it off. There was time.

No, there wasn't, thanks to you.

If you kept to the plan, those soldiers might be alive.

If you'd stayed here like I suggested, they definitely would be!

You called us, remember? My first mistake.

No. Your first mistake was thinking you could lead these people.

Hey!

I am not the one who abandoned Narnia.

You invaded Narnia. You have no more right to lead it than Miraz does.

You, him, your father... Narnia's better off without the lot of you.

Stop it!


What are you all standing around for?

Telmarines will be here soon enough.

Thank you... my dear little friend.

Well done, lads. Move it faster, mate. Too slow!

Beruna pledges its troops.

Galma pledges its troops.

Tashbaan pledges its troops.

Ettinsmoor pledges its troops.


Long live the king! Long live the king!


Are you so glad of that magic horn now, boy?

Your kings and queens have failed us.

Your army's half dead. And those that aren't will be soon enough.

What do you want? Congratulations?

You want your uncle's blood. So do we.

You want his throne? We can get it for you.

You tried one ancient power. It failed.

But there is a power greater still.

One that kept even Aslan at bay for near a hundred years.

Who's there?

I am hunger.

I am thirst.

I can fast a hundred years...

...and not die.

I can lie a hundred nights on the ice...

...and not freeze.

I can drink a river of blood and not burst.

Show me... your enemies!

What you hate, so will we.

No one hates better than us.

And you can... guarantee Miraz's death?

And more.

Let the circle be drawn.


Wait.

This isn't what I wanted.

One drop of Adam's blood and you free me.

Then I am yours, my king.

No!


Stop!


Come on! Come.

Get away from him!

Peter, dear.

I've missed you.

Come.

Just one drop.

You know you can't do this alone.


I know. You had it sorted.


Why did you never tell me about my father?

My mother was a Black Dwarf from the Northern Mountains.

I risked my life all these years so that one day...

...you might be a better king than those before you.

Then I have failed you.

Everything I told you... everything I didn't...

...it was only because I believe in you.

You have a chance to become the most noble contradiction in history.

The Telmarine who saved Narnia.


You're lucky, you know.

What do you mean?

To have seen him.

I wish he'd just given me some sort of proof.

Maybe we're the ones who need to prove ourselves to him.

Pete. You'd better come quickly.


Cakes and kettledrums. That's your next big plan?

Sending a little girl into the darkest parts of the forest? Alone!

It's our only chance. And she won't be alone.

Haven't enough of us died already?

Nikabrik was my friend too. But he lost hope.

Queen Lucy hasn't. And neither have I.

For Aslan.

For Aslan!

Then I'm going with you. No. We need you here.

We have to hold them off until Lucy and Susan get back.

If I may...

Miraz may be a tyrant and a murderer...

...but as king, he is subject to the traditions...

...and expectations of his people.

There is one in particular that may buy us some time.

Perhaps they intend to surrender.

No.

They are much too noble for that.

"I, Peter, by the gift of Aslan, by election and by conquest,"

High King of Narnia, Lord of Cair Paravel and emperor of the Lone Islands, in order to prevent the abominable effusion of blood, do hereby challenge the usurper Miraz to single combat upon the field of battle.

"The fight shall be to the death. The reward shall be total surrender."

Tell me, Prince Edmund... King.

Pardon me? It's "King Edmund," actually.

Just "King," though. Peter's the high king.

I know, it's confusing.

Why would we risk such a proposal when our armies could wipe you out by nightfall?

Haven't you already underestimated our numbers?

I mean, only a week ago Narnians were extinct.

And so you will be again.

Then you should have little to fear.

This is not a question of bravery.

So you're bravely refusing to fight a swordsman half your age?

I didn't say I refused.

You have our support, Your Majesty.

Whatever your decision.

Sire, our military advantage alone provides the perfect excuse to avoid what might otherwise be... I'm not avoiding anything!

I was merely pointing out that my lord is well within his rights to refuse.

His Majesty would never refuse.

He relishes the chance to show the people the courage of their new king.

You.

You should hope your brother's sword is sharper than his pen.

Destrier has always served me well. You are in good hands.

Or hooves.

Good luck. Thanks.

Look.

Maybe it is time you had this back.

Why don't you hold on to it. You might need to call me again.

You might need to call me again?

Oh, shut up.


If it should appear to be going poorly...

Understood, Your Majesty.

I hope you won't be too disappointed when I survive.


There is still time to surrender.

Well, feel free.

How many more must die for the throne?

Just one.


Ride! They've seen us!

Take the reins. What are you doing?

I'm sorry, Lucy. But it looks as if you'll be going alone after all.


Are you sure you don't need that horn?

Ah!

Ah!

Ah!

Ah!


Does His Highness need a respite?

Five minutes?

Three!

Lucy?

She got through... with a little help.

Thanks. Well, you were busy.

I assume you won't let things get that close again!

You better get up there. Just in case.

I don't expect the Telmarines will keep their word.

Ah! Sorry.

It's all right.

Be careful. Keep smiling.

How does he look to you?

Young.

But His Majesty's doing extremely well... for his age.

I think it's dislocated.

What do you think happens back home if you die here?

You know you've always been there, and I never really...

Ah!

Save it for later.


Ah!


Ah!

Respite!

Respite.

Now's not the time for chivalry, Peter!

Show no mercy!


Look out!


What's the matter, boy?

Too cowardly to take a life?

It's not mine to take.


Perhaps I was wrong.

Maybe you do have the makings of a Telmarine king after all.

Not one like you.

Keep your life.

But I am giving the Narnians back their kingdom.


My king.

I'll deal with you when this is over.

It is over.

Treachery! They shot him!

They murdered our king!

Be ready!

Peter!

Go!

To arms, Telmar!

To arms!

Loose!


Cavalry!

Attack!

Archers to the ready!


Narnians!

Charge!


One, two...

Three, four...

Five, six...

Take your aim!

Stay with them!

Eight, nine...

Get ready!

Now!


Stop! Back! Back!

Hold it now! Hold it!

Now!

Charge!


You're a mouse.

You people have no imagination.


Loose!

Lucy?

Back to the How!

Cut off their escape!

Loose!

Loose!

Brace yourselves!

Back to the How!


Crush them all.


Ah!

Aslan!

Oh!

I knew it was you. The whole time, I knew it.

But the others didn't believe me.

And why would that stop you from coming to me?

I'm sorry. I was too scared to come alone.

Why wouldn't you show yourself?

Why couldn't you come roaring in and save us like last time?

Things never happen the same way twice, dear one.

If I'd have come earlier, would everyone who died... could I have stopped that?

We can never know what would have happened, Lucy.

But what will happen is another matter entirely.

You mean you'll help? Of course.

As will you. Oh, I wish I was braver.

If you were any braver, you'd be a lioness.

Now, I think your friends have slept long enough, don't you?


Come on!


Lucy.


For Aslan!

We can defeat them if we draw them to the river.

We must regroup. To Beruna!

To the bridge!


Charge!


What is happening?

The river! Retreat!

Back! Back!


Assemble on that bank!

You will not be harmed!

Surrender your weapons!

Take off the armor!

Rise, kings and queens of Narnia.

All of you.

I do not think I am ready.

It's for that very reason I know you are.


Oh!

Thank you, Your Majesty.

Thank you.

Uh... Oh!

Hail, Aslan! It is a great honor to be in...

I'm completely out of countenance.

I must crave your indulgence for appearing in this unseemly fashion.

Uh... perhaps a drop more?

I don't think it does that. You could have a go.

It becomes you well, small one.

All the same, great king, I regret that I must withdraw, for a tail is the honor and glory of a mouse.

Perhaps you think too much of your honor, friend.

Well, it's not just the honor. It's also great for balance.

And climbing. And grabbing things.

May it please Your High Majesty, we will not bear the shame of wearing an honor denied to our chief.

Not for the sake of your dignity, but for the love of your people.

Look! Thank you, my liege. I will treasure it always.

From this day forward it will serve as a great reminder of my huge humility.

Now, where is this dear little friend you've told me so much about?


Do you see him now?


Your Majesty?

We are ready. Everyone has assembled.

Narnia belongs to the Narnians, just as it does to man.

Any Telmarines who want to stay and live in peace are welcome to.

But for any of you who wish, Aslan will return you to the home of our forefathers.

It's been generations since we left Telmar.

We're not referring to Telmar.

Your ancestors were seafaring brigands.

Pirates run aground on an island.

There they found a cave, a rare chasm that brought them here from their world.

The same world as our kings and queens.

It is to that island I can return you.

It is a good place for any who wish to make a new start.

I will go.

I will accept the offer.

So will we.

Because you have spoken first, your future in that world shall be good.


Where did they go? They killed them.

How do we know he is not leading us to our death?

Sire. If my example can be of any service, I will take 11 mice through with no delay.

We'll go. We will?

Come on. Our time's up.

After all...

...we're not really needed here any more.

I will look after it until you return.

I'm afraid that's just it.

We're not coming back.

We're not?

You two are.

At least, I think he means you two.

But why?

Did they do something wrong? Quite the opposite, dear one.

But all things have their time.

Your brother and sister have learned what they can from this world.

Now it's time for them to live in their own.

It's all right, Lu.

It's not how I thought it would be...

...but it's all right.

One day you'll see, too. Come on.


I'm glad I came back.

I wish we had more time together.

It would never have worked, anyway.

Why not?

I am 1,300 years older than you.


I'm sure when I'm older I'll understand.

I'm older and don't think I want to understand.


Aren't you coming, Phyllis?

You don't think there's any way we can get back?
