The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

New this month Other mistake: At beginning of the movie, where Lucy is leaving Mr Tumnus at the lamppost, she gives him her hanky. When the children come out of Mr Tumnus' house and meets the beaver, the beaver hands her the hanky she gave to Mr Tumnus. At the end after the children have been crowned. Lucy runs out on the balcony to see Aslan walking across the beach. Mr Tumnus comes out to comfort her. Mr Tumnus pulls the hanky, from under his scarf that she gave him when they met, despite it already having been returned to her.

Visible crew/equipment: When Mrs. MacReady meets the Pevensie children at the train station, the reflector screen is reflected in the lenses of her glasses, as she looks down when she speaks to them. It is also visible when the children first arrive at the house, when Mrs. MacReady says, "There shall be no disturbing of the professor." (00:07:30)

Continuity mistake: When Lucy is at the lamppost the first time, in one shot she has her right hand on the post, in the next overhead shot, her left hand is on the post. The next shot, her right hand is back on the post. There is no time for her to switch hands. (00:13:35)

Audio problem: When they're standing on the breaking ice, as Peter points his sword at Maugrim, Susan shouts, "Look, just because some man in a red coat hands you a sword doesn't make you a hero. Just drop it." In the very next shot (we still see Susan's profile, despite the side shot), Susan's lips/jaw are moving, but nothing is heard, which occurs just as Peter quickly glances at her and we also hear Beaver shout, "No, Peter!"

Continuity mistake: When the four children are waiting for Mrs. Macready to pick them up, a car drives by leaving tire tracks in the dirt road. When the horse drawn cart comes up the road towards them, the car tracks have vanished. (00:07:10)

Revealing mistake: When the girls are on Aslan's back, you can tell that there is a flat screen behind them.

BigOLB

Revealing mistake: Aslan is carrying Lucy and Susan on his back to the battle and is running at a very fast speed. If you look at the girls' hair though, it isn't moving at all, flat against their backs as if there wasn't any wind. (01:51:20)

Deliberate mistake: Obviously due to the family nature of the film, but when Peter stabs the White Witch's henchmen at battle, the sword always remains clean, and never bloody. (This is a Disney family film and as such no blood is shown. Still a mistake, but there's the reason). (01:56:10)

Revealing mistake: When the Beavers and the Penvesies trek along the ice river, the Beavers drag their tails along through the snow, yet the snow is never disturbed by them. (01:03:35)

Continuity mistake: When Lucy and Mr. Tumnus first meet, he drops his packages on the snow covered ground. The positions of the parcels are quite different in the overhead shot, as Lucy walks over to Mr. Tumnus. (00:14:00)

Revealing mistake: During the battle scene, the White Witch clearly stabs Peter in the arm with her sword. In the very next shot the sword goes through the chainmail behind his arm, into the ground. (02:02:40)

Amber

Continuity mistake: When Edmund first enters Narnia, he falls backwards out of the last of the coats and onto the snow. There is a close-up shot of Edmund as he lands on his back, and we can see a sprinkling of snow already on the front of his robe. In the next shot, he sits up, and the front of his robe is immaculate. (00:27:20)
