** Ironically, one of the outakes from the 2013 film shows the actor of Edmund shutting the door behind him as he climbs into the wardrobe...and demonstrating why Lewis was careful to emphasise the warning against doing that.

* FaceScribbling: Edmund, during his nasty period, rather tackily scribbles a mustache and glasses on a lion that's been turned to stone, telling himself it must be Aslan himself, TakenForGranite.

**However it is what is known as an "Eye rhyme". Each line ends with "-one"making it look like it SHOULD rhyme.

* AlwaysChaoticEvil: ** [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarfs]], Wolves, Minotaurs, Hags, Harpies, Giants and all the other races that are loyal to the witch initially appear this way, but it's later shown a good portion of them do have Good members, as seen by dwarfs, a giant, and even wolves rescued from the Witch's castle, who later fight for Aslan. Later books and films show many good Narnian dwarves, giants, and minotaurs. Indeed, if you only read those books you'd think the dwarfs are just another of the many AlwaysLawfulGood races in Narnia, with only a few bad apples. [[spoiler:Until the revolt of a large amount of them in Literature/TheLast Battle.]] However, in the only other appearance of a Hag and a Werewolf, in ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'', it's implied that they really are AlwaysChaoticEvil.

** [[OurDwarvesAreDifferent Dwarfs]], Wolves, Minotaurs, Hags, Harpies, Giants and all the other races that are loyal to the witch. This would technically make them evil but these races probably obey the witch because none of them are brave enough to try to backstab her and usurp the throne for themselves. This is later subverted by dwarfs, a giant, and even wolves rescued from the Witch's castle, who later fight for Aslan. ** The movie had the dwarfs divided between sides. ** In this, it's being true to the later books. ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'' and TheLastBattle have dwarfs divided between the sides of good (Trumpkin, Poggin) and evil (Nikabrik in ''Caspian'' and the rebels in TheLastBattle). The dwarfs' appearances in other books are even farther from the doctrine of dwarfish depravity; indeed, if you only read those books you'd think the dwarfs are just another of the many AlwaysLawfulGood races in Narnia. ** Giants are also divided between good and evil in later books. ** However, in the only other appearance of a Hag (and a Werewolf), in ''Literature/PrinceCaspian'', it's implied that they really are AlwaysChaoticEvil.

Moved examples from the film to the film's page.
!!This book provides examples of: * AdaptationDyeJob: Lucy is a blonde in the books but is brunette here. Georgie Henley's hair was actually lightened for the film but it's still noticeable. Edmund is commonly portrayed as a blond too, but is played by brunet Skandar Keynes. Peter meanwhile is dark-haired in the illustrations but blond in the film. Susan is the only Pevensie to keep her book hair colour (black). Jadis's hair is never mentioned in the books but illustrations give her black hair. She is a blonde in the film. ** The BBC adaptation once again had Lucy as a brunette, and Susan as a blonde. * AdaptationExpansion: All adaptations feature the battle at Beruna, which happened offscreen in the book. The live action film also adds an extended sequence showing the Blitz in London - and a scene where Maugrim meets the children and offers them a chance to surrender. ** The film also greatly fleshes out the personalities of the children. Peter's BigBrotherBully tendencies are played up a lot more between him and Edmund - with Peter feeling that he has to act as a TeamDad to compensate for their father being in the war. Edmund is portrayed as much more sympathetic, with his HeelFaceTurn getting much more development. Susan likewise becomes an AgentScully type, presumably foreshadowing her later fate in the books. * AdaptationPersonalityChange: Susan in the books doesn't have much of a personality and leans more towards a TeamMom. The film portrays her as a believer in logic and reason - often showing ArbitrarySkepticism towards Narnia. She also gets upgraded to TheLancer towards Peter, especially at the frozen waterfall sequence. * AdultFear: In the Walden Media version of the movie, Peter uses his sword to split the ice on a frozen river to allow him and his sisters to escape the White Witch's wolves. He and Susan wash ashore and begin picking themselves up. Susan suddenly looks around and asks where Lucy is. Peter realizes that he is holding Lucy's empty jacket and Susan ''positively shrieks'' "What have you done?!" [[spoiler: Fortunately Lucy turns up shortly, perfectly fine except for being cold and asks if they've seen her coat.]]

* ArbitrarySkepticism: ** Susan in the Walden Media film remarks that a beaver shouldn't be speaking, never mind that she's just travelled through a wardrobe into a magical land. ** Lucy, when she first comes to Narnia, wonders why there's a street light in the middle of the forest... a forest she discovered inside of a wardrobe.

* BoundAndGagged: In the 2005 film adaptation, Edmund winds up tied to a tree and gagged mid-way, as Ginabrik taunts him on his upcoming fate. [[spoiler: When Aslan sends his army to follow a wolf after Maugrim is killed, they manage to rescue Edmund... and make Ginabrik take his place as the tied-up individual.]]

* DeathByAdaptation: [[spoiler: Jadis's dwarf]]. It's WhatHappenedToTheMouse in the book but Susan shoots him with an arrow in the film.

* DeadpanSnarker: ''Professor Kirke'', of all people. In the 2005 film, when he's talking to Peter and Susan, we get this: -->'''Susan:''' It's our sister, sir. Lucy. -->'''Professor Kirke:''' The weeping girl? -->'''Susan:''' Yes, sir. She's upset. -->'''Professor Kirke:''' Hence the weeping.

* ImNotAHeroIm: In the Walden Media film: -->'''Peter:''' We're not heroes. -->'''Susan:''' We're from Finchley!

* ReverseMole: Fox in the FilmOfTheBook, is truly on Aslan's side but pretends to serve the Witch.
