Four kids travel through a wardrobe to the land of Narnia and learn of their destiny to free it with the guidance of a mystical lion.
The makers asked for permission to bring in twelve reindeer to New Zealand, to pull the Ice Queen's sled. The Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry denied them, citing the potentially deadly Q Fever, from which the North American reindeer population suffers, as the reason. However, ten wolves were allowed in, for filming in Auckland.
Edmund! Get away from there! Peter!
Mrs. Pevensie: What do you think you're doing? Peter! Quickly, the shelter! Now!
The coaches of the train on which the Pevensie children travel have Great Western Railway colors and lettering. The engine, No. 7802 Bradley Manor, is painted and lettered for British Railways, which did not form until 1948, after the war ended.
In the opening credits the Title "The Lion, the Witch, and Wardrobe" comes down as snow after we see "The Chronicles of Narnia"
