Big premiere for Prince Caspian

Stars of the film

Prince Caspian, the latest instalment in the Narnia series, has premiered in London at a HUGE event.

Ten thousand fans gathered at the 02 Arena to catch a sneak preview of the movie on what's said to be the biggest screen ever constructed in Europe.

Kids dressed as lions, witches and Telmarine soldiers trekked down the red and green carpet, along with the stars of the film and other famous faces.

The glamorous event is thought to be the UK's biggest-ever film premiere.

Ben Barnes, who plays Prince Caspian, said he was so excited he was "babbling like an idiot".

He said: "Despite all the people behind me I can guarantee I'm the most excited person here."

The young stars were excited!
And Anna Popplewell who plays Susan Pevensie, said: "It's mental, mental, chicken oriental is what I think.

"It's really nice to bring the film home for us British actors and to be with a home crowd."

The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian is released in UK cinemas on 26 June.
