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

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.

Correction: The mothballs remain the entire time. However, they have been pushed to the left once all four children are in the room.

Corrected entry: When Lucy gives Edmund the healing elixir, which "heals any injury", his life-threatening abdomen wound is healed, but the gash on his lip remains.

Correction: The reason that it wouldn't heal Edmunds lip is because the potion is made to heal the most threatening injury or illness. If the injury is something minor, it most likely will not be healed. In the book "The Voyage of the Dawn Treader", this is explained when Eustace's arm ring won't come off even after being healed by Lucy's potion. It will stop the pain, but it will not heal the injury completely.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the film when the children become adults, the eldest sister's eyes are a very dark brown color. When they fall back through the wardrobe cabinet they go back to their original steel blue color.

Correction: It is not uncommon for eyes to change color as you get older (see here) and when the children exited the wardrobe, they reverted to the age that they were when they entered the wardrobe. No error here.

Continuity mistake: When Peter finds the note about the capture of Mr. Tumnus he pulls it down off the nail, ripping the top edge of the paper. In a following shot the top edge of the paper can be seen fully intact, then ripped again. (00:41:20)

Trivia: Before filming the Narnia scenes, Georgie Henley was never shown the set. To get a genuine reaction of surprise, director Andrew Adamson had Henley brought onto the Narnia set blindfolded. Her reactions to Mr. Tumnus are real, too. Before filming their scenes together, she had never seen James McAvoy in costume.
