I think this is just a mistake on Barne's part. Georgie Henley has said that she won't be coming back either. Which is obviously impossible since she has a pretty good-sized part in the HHB and LB.

Yep, Aragorn2, and even William Moseley and Anna Popplewell said they wouldn't be back for VDT. Look where that got 'em. ;)

update...right from the horse's mouth:

Asked if there’s a possibility that there may be more “Narnia” movies in his future, Ben quipped, “I approached the producers at the after party, after watching very carefully how many glasses of champagne they had. I made sure they had at least three before I broached the question. Caspian is a 70-year-old man, so either they’re going to have to bring Howard Berger (the series’ makeup artist) and his team and I’m going to wake up very early in the morning or they’ll get someone older.’

....

“But, after those aforementioned glasses of champagne, they were talking about maybe doing flashbacks, because in the last chapter of ‘Dawn Treader,’ Caspian and Lilliandil are getting married. There are few potential moments where we could do flashbacks, however.”


well that would've been funny if not for the not-so-good news :(

Well...they could get an older man who looks VERY much like Ben Barnes. Great for Eustace's not recognizing him and character disconnect as we realize he is old, we are still young. Then have Ben Barnes back when he is young...? :D

better news :D

Will you be aged-up to play King Caspian again in The Silver Chair?

I don’t think so. While there are some amazing make up artists out there, I don’t think that they have quite perfected the techniques needed to make a 30-year-old look 70. But there is a scene at the end of the next book where the young Caspian returns, so you never know!

He seems really busy. You know nothing is set in stone so you never know! He just might be in the next one as Caspian again! I think that would be so cool!

I doubt ben Barnes will play the old Caspian... it wouldn't look right at all. But I'm sure he'll return as the Caspian in Aslan's Country. It wouldn't make sense if they cast someone else.

Unless they just left that part out... :-s

they.better.NOT. X( that's one of the most emotional moments in SC. In fact, all scenes involving Caspian are emotional as he lost his wife and then son and stuff. Poor guy.

and if it's possible to turn Ben Barnes into a gruesome old man in Dorian Gray, I think it's not a difficult feat to make him look 70 in SC.

I don't see why Ben *wouldn't* come back for "The Silver Chair". He's supposed to become young again at the end. I hope he does come back for it!!

^^ if they have that scene, Ben will be back. count on it. :P if the eagerness to be back in Narnia shows through in the interviews, I am sure that Ben would LOVE to come back! :D :D

Oh yes, I suppose that that is true! :) I bet they'll bring him back if they possibly can, which seems rather likely. After all, these people do like cameos! :p (of which I have no complaint!!)

My First post in 2011!



Aww. :( yes i will miss him, but there is one part near the end where it is POSSIBLE he could, and SHOULD be in SC. When he goes from an old man to a young boy in the river, remember?

Other than the Caspian Young Again Scene, they would need Ben for the flashbacks where they would need to flesh out Caspian's relationship with Lilliandil.
