Whenever I hear a sequel is being made to a movie I like I have two reactions; I get very excited to have the chance to see more of a story that I liked, but then I remember that very rarely am I happy with the way things turn out in the follow-up movie.
For example: remember how awesome the Matrix was... remember how much the sequels killed the movies? It also happened with 28 Days later, Underworld, and Battlefield Earth. All good movies that have their prestige tarnished because of sucky sequels. (Just kidding about that Battlefield Earth bit, they took five bad sequels rolled them into one movie and called it Xenu.)
However there are some movies that the sequels make all the difference in how much I like them: The Mummy series, the Back to the Future series, and Star Wars. All three are examples of movies that had great first movies but were made legendary because of the ones that followed. (Well the Mummy Returns helped The Mummy, I think the series is trying it's darnedest to disown the terrible move Scorpion King.)
So here we stand. The Chronicles of Narnia is in my top 20 all time favorite movies, and I would love to see another story set in its world, but I fear the reaper of suck. The only way to ward off that guy is to check the trailer:
So will the Caspian Prince be a worthy sequel to Narinia?
