Corrected entry: The bomb aimer on the Heinkel 111 which bombs London at the beginning of the film is equipped with a red LED console indicating which bombs were left. This portion of the film is intended to be set in the real world, not some technologically advanced alternative universe; as such, this is a clear anachronism as LEDs were not invented until 1962.
Corrected entry: In the opening scene when the bombers are attacking London, we see the searchlights sweeping the sky and occasionally the searchlights sweep across a bomber. The searchlights are supposed to keep tracking a bomber once they find it so the antiaircraft guns can target it in the dark sky. Instead these lights just keep sweeping back and forth.
Corrected entry: When Lucy came out of Narnia the first time, she was only gone for a few seconds. 5 to 10 seconds at the most. But when she goes in the 2nd time, Edmund goes in at least 30 seconds after Lucy. Wouldn't Lucy have already returned if time basically stops in Narnia?
Corrected entry: At the beginning of the film, when the children are at the train station with their mother, the mother says to Lucy, "You warm enough? Good girl". When she says "good girl" her lips don't move.
Corrected entry: As the children are escaping down the beavers tunnel, the ceiling is about 5 feet tall, way bigger than any beaver would dig a tunnel. This was obviously done so the children could stand in the tunnel, none the less it is not factual.
Corrected entry: In the film King Peter is shown riding a Unicorn but book 7 of the Chronicles of Narnia "The Last Battle" makes it clear that no one, not even the King, would dare to ride a Unicorn.
Corrected entry: When the beavers, Lucy, Peter and Susan are hiding in the cave and they see the shadow of Santa, the shadow is of a man. When they actually see Santa, though, he has a huge beard that would have been visible in the shadow.
Corrected entry: When the Pevensies have a snowball fight (right after they enter Narnia), Edmund gets hit on his right shoulder by a snowball, and it leaves some snow on his robe. Several shots later, the snowball mark has switched to his left shoulder, and the spot where he was hit originally has no snow on it.
Corrected entry: In the scene where the wolves interrogate the fox, why couldn't the wolves smell the Pevensie children and the beavers, who were right above them in the tree? Maugrim even says to his wolves, "Smell them out," but they don't smell the children or the beavers.
Corrected entry: As the train carrying the children away from London pulls away from the station, one shot shows the track forking and the train taking the left-hand track. The right-hand track leads away into the distance, but has a train on it - the train doesn't move, and neither does the smoke coming from it, showing that the entire right-hand section of the screen is a fake part of the set.
Corrected entry: In the scene where Tumnus and Lucy are walking towards Tumnus's house, an overhead shot shows two sets of human footprints behind the pair - not human feet and the faun's hooves as would be expected.
Corrected entry: When Lucy gives Tumnus the handkerchief, Tumnnus gives it to the Beaver just before he gets captured by the White Witch. The Beaver then gives the handkerchief to Lucy, then right at the end when Tumnus has been revived by Aslan, Tumnus has the handkerchief and gives it to Lucy.David Hancock
Corrected entry: After the children encounter and receive gifts from Father Christmas, Susan says to Peter: "Just because some man in a red suit hands you a sword doesn't make you a hero." But Father Christmas had been dressed all in brown.
Corrected entry: In the house when the children are playing hide and seek, Lucy runs towards the bedroom doors. She pushes the first door she comes to and it is locked. She then opens the door directly to the right and this is where the cupboard is. In the room there is a window shining light from outside into the room, but surely it should just look into the next bedroom?
Corrected entry: When Lucy opens the wardrobe for the first time, several mothballs spill onto the floor. In the wide shot, they are gone. They return at the very end of the movie when all four children fall out of the wardrobe.
