Added DiffLines:

* AngstWhatAngst: In the book, none of the siblings ever miss their parents, or think about what effect their sudden disappearance will have on the rest of their family. Nor do any of them express a wish to go home.

** Book wise: Getting to like ''all'' the Narnians that the siblings become close to and even friends with becomes ''depressing'' when you get to ''Prince Caspian'' and learn they all have long passed due to the NarniaTime of the Pevensie leaving Narnia on a hunt ''by accident''.

* {{Narm}}: Occasionally in the books and the film. The BBC Version also has some instances due to being low budget.
** Barbara Kellerman is a LargeHam who behaves in a ridiculously over the top manner as Jadis. She responds to a simple question from Edmund with a hilarious BigNO.
** The scene where the Pevensies and the beavers have to escape from the wolves. Mrs Beaver holds them up by insisting on packing loads of ridiculous things. It's the same scene as the book and 2005 film but lacks any of the urgency - because the rest of the characters treat this as a mild annoyance, as if she's going to make them late for a train rather than get them all killed with her SkewedPriorities.
** Peter's use of expressions like "by jove" and "by golly" don't even sound anything other than forced.

SkewedPriorities. Averted in the film, however, where the scene has plenty of urgency.
** From the BBC Televised Adaptation, Barbara Kellerman is a LargeHam who behaves in a ridiculously over the top manner as Jadis. She responds to a simple question from Edmund with a hilarious BigNO.
** Peter's use of expressions like "by jove" and "by golly" don't even sound anything other than forced. Probably because they're incredibly outdated expressions that the actors just felt awkward saying.

** In the book, Edmund's betrayal of his siblings is said to be due to magic in Jadis's Turkish Delight - and helped along by horrible influences at school. The film puts forward the interpretation that it's more due to Peter's BigBrotherBully tendencies, and Jadis is the [[BecauseYouWereNiceToMe first person to really show him affection in a long time]].

* UnintentionallySympathetic: Edmund when he first enters Narnia. The prose may lay him out as a BigBrotherBully to Lucy, but he does try to call out to her to admit that he was wrong about doubting her, and worries about her being alone in the winter. He also is shivering in the snow when a beautiful woman in white takes pity on him and shields him from the cold. How was he supposed to know that she was an evil witch and that the food she summoned was a GRatedDrug, which made him addicted to it and spoiled the taste of ordinary food?

** Peter and Susan seem more concerned with trying to look like responsible older children, Peter picking on Edmund to keep him in line and Susan scoffing at Lucy's stories. But in doing so they just expose their own immaturity, only behaving how they ''think'' adults should act. Both call each other out for this at different points in the film.

But in doing so they just expose their own immaturity, only behaving how they ''think'' adults should act. Both call each other out for this at different points in the film. At times one gets the impression that ''Lucy'' is the most sensible one of the children; she displays WiseBeyondHerYears traits and has no problem calling her siblings out, especially in ''Film/PrinceCaspian''.
--> "I wish you'd all stop trying to act like grown-ups."


Added DiffLines:

* WhatMeasureIsANonBadass: Susan gets hit with this a lot, given that she doesn't get to display her archery skills a lot in the story. She tends to get thought of as weak for not being able to fight Maugrim off herself. This ignores the fact that she gets Lucy and herself to safety and manages to sound an alarm to warn the others of the danger. It's possibly for this reason that the second film gives her more to do in battle.

** When Edmund complains that it's raining outside, Susan mentions that they have a "wireless" inside to entertain them.
