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

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)

Trivia: When Lucy finds Narnia the second time, the "wind" that blows out her candle is a crew member inside the wardrobe blowing the flame out.

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.

Trivia: After the initial credits begin (since many people leave the theatre as soon as the credits appear, they miss this), there is an additional short scene between Professor Kirke and Lucy, that takes place near the wardrobe. (02:12:25)

More trivia for The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

Susan Pevensie: Lucy thinks she's found a magical land...
Professor Kirke: Hmmm.
Susan Pevensie: In the upstairs wardrobe.
Professor Kirke: What? What did you say?
Peter Pevensie: Our sister... She thinks she's found a wood...
Professor Kirke: What was it like?
Susan Pevensie: Like talking to a lunatic...
Professor Kirke: No, no, not her, the wood!
Susan Pevensie: You don't mean you believe her?
Professor Kirke: And you don't?

Professor Kirke: What were you all doing in the wardrobe?
Peter Pevensie: You wouldn't believe us if we told you, sir.
Professor Kirke: Try me.

Aslan: If the Witch understood the true meaning of sacrifice, she would have interpreted the deep magic differently. That when a willing victim who has committed no wrong, offers himself in a traitor's stead, the stone table will crack, and death itself will go backwards.

Question: Are Professor Kirke and Mrs. MacReady both aware of what the wardrobe really is and what it can do?

Chosen answer: While Professor Kirke is aware of the existence of Narnia, as he was there when it was created, he doesn't appear to be aware that the wardrobe can act as a portal (although he may suspect that it has unusual properties, as the tree from which the wood came to create it grew from a Narnian apple). Mrs MacReady doesn't know.

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)?

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

Question: I was wondering if in the books, or in any other literature/discussion about the story, whether Professor Kirke is Mr. Tumnus' father? They certainly looked like each other in this movie and it seemed to be implied during the scene in the credits.

Chosen answer: The professor is not Tumnus's father. In the credits scene, the professor wants to get back to Narnia because he was there as a boy (in the book "The Magician's Nephew").
