Best family movie mistakes of 2016

Factual error: At one point, Newt Scamander says he found one of his beasts in Equatorial Guinea. That country only got that name after independence from Spain in 1968; back in 1926, when the movie is set, the place was known as Spanish Guinea.


Other mistake: Duke is running through the city while dragging Max by his leash. A close-up shows Max being pulled between the bars of a metal fence, but the gap is much too small for Duke to have passed through.

Other mistake: When Alice's ship is being chased, she orders her crew heel to port (turn left). Instead, it turns heel to starboard (right).

Other mistake: Two security guards at Firebrand are shown watching a video of Tom, as Mr. Fuzzypants, jumping across a doorway and Lara and Madison attempting to catch him that Nicole filmed. The problem is, the camera angle shows an angle in front of Lara, Madison and the cat and Nicole filmed the video from behind the cat. Nicole can even be seen filming in the background of the video. There is still no way this footage could have been filmed from this angle.

Continuity mistake: At breakfast in the BFG cave the bottle of frobscottle is taken from the table by the big bad giant when he says "I is taking this", only to show up again when Sophie clambers out the shnozcumber.

Continuity mistake: When Pete and Elliott return to their hideout after the ordeal on the truck is over, it is dark. Moments later when Bryce Dallas Howard arrives, there is a lot more light coming in through the trees and the scene looks brighter. This is in the space of five minutes or less.
