Based on the C.S. Lewis book of the same name, this is the story of what happens when Lucy and Edmund return to Narnia for the third, and final time.

The children meet up with Caspian as soon as they arrive, and set out on a quest to reclaim seven swords that have been blessed by Aslan.

This once was rather better than the adaptation of Prince Caspian and is certainly worth at least a rental.
