Last Sunday I saw the new poster for the the next NARNIA-Film. It will be the second film in the series and has the title "The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian."
Based on the C.S. Lewis story the four Pevensie children return to Narnia to aid a young prince in his struggle for the throne against his corrupt uncle King Miraz.
They arrive on a small island at the shores of the Eastern Sea and find that more than a thousand years have passed since they reigned there as kings and queens
Above the picture of a the lion and a fortress, young and strong looking Caspian, which the film makers dedided to have an hispanic background and outlook we find the words: „A new age has begun” .
The film is sheduled to be released on 2008, May 16.
On the same day I heard about another "Caspian prince":
As we all know, in the last weeks the topic Gog-Magog-War was discussed and highly observed as Russia' Putin backed Iran's Ahmadinedschad with his Atomic-plans, also in Israel:

Who is Gog?

"Son of man, turn towards Gog and the country of Magog, the prince of Rosh, Meshech and Tubal, and prophesy against him." Ez.38:2-7.

Gog is also a Prince.
Wikipedia writes:
"The 14th century Sunni Muslim scholar Ibn Kathir also identified Gog and Magog with the Khazars who lived between the Black and Caspian Seas in his work Al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah (The Beginning and the End)." more on the Caspian Sea on God's Geography....

Gog and Magog are also mentioned in the Book of Revelation:
(20, 7.) :"And when the thousand years are expired, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea. "

On Sunday I learned that Vladimir Volfovich Zhirinovsky, (see picture above with the "magic horn": the roses), founder and the leader of the socalled Liberal Democratic Party of Russia (LDPR), Vice-Chairman of the State Duma, and a member of the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (sic) was born in the area near the Caspian sea in Almaty, Kazakhstan.

"Zhirinovsky has been widely accused of anti-Semitism for statements in which he accused Jews of ruining Russia, sending Russian women to foreign countries as prostitutes, selling children and organs to the Western world, and provoking the Holocaust. ...He repeatedly denied his father's Jewishness until he published Ivan Close Your Soul in July 2001, describing how his father changed his name, Volf Isaakovich Eidelshtein, from Eidelshtein to Zhirinovsky. On the November 2006 death by poisoning of Russian defector Alexander Litvinenko, he allegedly said "any traitor must be eliminated using any methods." ...
In July 2007, in response to questions about Russian troops carrying out extensive war games around the town of Pskov, which reportedly included rehearsals of a Baltic invasion, Zhirinovsky endorsed the forcible re-occupation of the Baltic States." ( from Wikipedia )

Zhirinovsky is also the most popular politican in Russioa after Putin and as I heard also one of his closest advisers.

John from wrote already while ago:
"As the recent (Oct. 2003) Islamic summit in Malaysia openly called on all Muslims to fight against the Jews, Gog must now be very happy as he watches, from his living room, these groups growing in such passion. Perhaps Gog has already decided to use the Muslims to win the Middle East. Upon advertising that he is anti-Israeli and/or anti-West, Gog can quickly secure swarms of angry desert pirates for his own purposes.
Moreover, as Russian soldiers, like most Russians, are impoverished, the possibility of someone like Zhirinovsky taking a good portion of the whole lot for an iniquitous swarming of the Middle East is not unimaginable. It might play out better for him if his conquests do not include a large compliment of Russian soldiers sanctioned by the Russian President...unless the UN sanctions them for peacekeeping purposes.

The filmmakers of the new NARNIA FILM "PRINCE CASPIAN" also interpreted the Telmarines, including Caspian, as being Hispanic, due to their pirate origins.
(Tom Ambrose. "Heroes of 2008", Empire, 2007-07-26, pp. 78. Retrieved on 2007-07-26. )

This fits preceicly to the actual Russian behaviour:
"Lufthansa Cargo Banned from Russian Airspace
Lufthansa Cargo was shocked by the announcement: Since Sunday midnight, Lufthansa's cargo planes have been banned from entering Russian airspace.
"The way Russia fleeces airlines is akin to modern highway robbery," one parliamentarian said. Another mentioned that the European Union and Russia are currently negotiating an air traffic treaty. "Moscow's decision to withdraw flyover rights at precisely this moment amounts to a unilateral termination of these negotiations," he said. He claimed to know nothing about Russia's motives.

In Russia we see the rising of a new leader cult: the „Naschi-movement”, as in Narnia 2: Childern aid for the Prince?

"(In Russia) there is constructive and destructive opposition", says Naschi-Chef Borowikow. For him for example the right-extreme Wladimir Zhirinovsky, who threatened the West with a "third World-War", belongs to the constructive ones. "He represents reasonable positions and stays in the frame of law." farmertranslated from,1518,514204,00.html

so this is all just in time for the Narnia film, which was originally planned to be released on 2007, Dec.14. The Prince will become king Caspian. Maybe the Prince is not such a good hero at all?

I await your comments and stay tuned!
