Visible crew/equipment: When Lucy, Peter, and Susan are riding on the ice chunk down the river, when you see a shot of Lucy struggling to maintain her grip on the ice block, immediately after, there is a shot of Peter holding what was supposed to be Lucy. However, it is not Lucy. The person Peter is holding is bigger than Lucy and had blonde-brown hair.

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 Santa puts his bag of gifts down on the ground, we see that there is a teddy bear and a quiver of arrows, among other gifts, in the bag. In the next shot of Santa reaching into the bag, the bear and the quiver are now next to each other when there were many inches apart in the prior shot. (01:09:30)

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

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.
