Continuity mistake: When Peter, Susan, Lucy and the Beavers arrive to Aslan's camp and see Oreius, his body is all black. In the battle you can see that Oreius has black legs up to his knees, but then his body is brown. It's easy to see just when the Minotaur drops from Oreius's back: the stomach is brown.

Continuity mistake: When the Pevensie children leave Mr. Tumnus' home they hear noises outside, so Susan places her hand on Peter's arm and Peter holds her hand. Just before Beaver appears, in the front shot, Susan and Peter remove their hands, but in the next shot they're back on Peter's arm. (00:44:50)

Question: A friend of mine noticed that despite it being winter in Narnia for a hundred years, no one's breath is visible. Is this a mistake, a director's choice (since it could've been added in post) or an element of Narnia (I am not very familiar with the books)?

Answer: It was never mentioned in the book or the movie that breath wasn't visible, so it is a mistake.
