i've been looking forward to the sequel for a while now, as when i saw Narnia's Realm 1, i thought it was really good.
in this episode, i wasn't very disapppointed. the graphics are great, as everything looks superb in the movie.
the animation - as you said - isn't too heavy, but of what there was it wasnt too bad. But, i did think that some of the movements took too long on occasions. eg, when the character is walking through the forest with some shadowed shrubs in the foreground. but apart from that i thought that the animation was not too bad.
also, i found that most of the shading in the movie was excellent.
so all up, a good sequel, but it was a little short, and only showed a small portion of his journey. still, the graphics were very good, and the animation wasnt too bad. so keep up the good work mate.
overall score: 7/10
(THE THUMB: UP!!)
