Beauty and the Beast

Page 4

Continuity mistake: When Gaston jumps from the rooftop in front of Belle and says "Hello Belle", he has four arrows in his quiver. However in all the previous and following shots, he only ever has three.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the slightly changed version with the song 'Human Again' added, when Cogworth, Mrs. Potts, Chip etc. are talking about there being "Something there that wasn't there before...", just after the "Something There" song, In this scene Chip's chip is in the left side of his cup. It is meant to be in the right.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice is being chased by the wolves, he runs up to the gates of the Beast's castle and grabs the bars. You can see in a wideshot that he is holding the bars around the area of the patterned strip of the gate. However when it cuts to a closer view, and he pushes the gates open, he isn't holding the patterned strip of the gate, but just the normal bars.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: At the end of the 'Something There' song, Belle is sitting at the fireplace and Beast hangs her coat up on a stand. Next to the coatstand you can see a bookcase with a statue on top of it. However when it suddenly cuts to Cogworth and Mrs. Potts, who are watching them from the doorway, still singing, the coatstand, bookcase and statue have all vanished.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Gaston and Le Fou talk to the Asylum Keeper, in a wideshot Gaston finishes his beer and puts the beermug down. Then in the shot when Gaston says "I've got my heart set on marrying Belle", the mug has vanished. It then returns in the following shot.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Gaston comes to Belle's house to propose to her, you can notice that he leaves the door open, but when he backs Belle against it, the door has magically shut. It is definitely the same door - note the items surrounding the door, and the door itself are all the same.

Hamster

Other mistake: At no point in this movie is the background of a room ever reflected in a mirror - even if the characters themselves are reflected in it.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Potts puts Chip into the cupboard, saying "Into the cupboard with your brothers and sisters", between a wideshot and closeup, more teacups suddenly appear around Chip.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: In the "Be Our Guest" number, Mrs. Potts notices a large spot of dirt on her side. Then when the napkins wipe her, you can see the one large spot of dirt had turned into three small spots of dirt.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: At the start, the Beast tears a painting and makes ten equal sized gashes. Later, Belle is exploring and sees this painting; there are now nine little gashes and one huge gash.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast first shows Belle into her room, when he leaves you can see the doors have a curvy, spirally pattern which leads down the them. But when Belle is up in her room crying and Mrs. Potts comes to her door, Belle then approachs the door and we see the design on the door is now two large squares. However in the following shot of Mrs. Potts entering, saying "I thought you might like a spot of tea", the design has changed back to the curvy, spirally pattern.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: The brightness of the yellow quivers of Gaston's arrows change during the final scenes. For instance, when he's outside and yells "But remember, the beast is mine!" they are quite dark yellow, but as he puts one in his quiver to shoot the beast, they are bright yellow.

Continuity mistake: When Belle uses Maurice's invention to look outside the door, there is a wooden bolt on the wall. The length of this bolt changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Gaston is cleaning his teeth in front of the mirror, the decorations on the mirror's frame change between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice enters the castle for the first time, there are windows on either side of the front doors. These were not there when Maurice had looked up at the castle after arriving.

Continuity mistake: The length of the chip on the axe in Maurice's invention changes in the scene where he is building it, and also later when Chip is trying to get it to work.

Continuity mistake: In the Gaston song sequence, the villagers pick up the chair Gaston is in, and carry it in front of the bear rug. Then suddenly, Lefou is standing on the bear rug, and the chair crashes down on him.

Continuity mistake: The settings and conditions of the West Wing change drastically. For instance, in the beginning, the painting is very close to the rose and there's also a red carpet underneath it, but later the painting is further from the rose and the red carpet disappears. When Belle leaves the room after the Beast releases her, there are red decorations on the floor in front of the door which were not there earlier when the Beast burst in after Belle refused to go to dinner with him. There is usually a lot of junk cluttered in the West Wing, but when the Beast takes a bath it looks much cleaner. It's an almost endless list.

Continuity mistake: When Lumiere and Cogsworth are persuading Belle not to go into the West Wing, in an overhead shot they're at the center of the red carpet, but in the next they're at the far edge of the carpet.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast is watching Belle from the balcony, the snow on the edge of the balcony changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast brings Belle into the library, the axis on the globe goes all the way through. A few seconds later, the globe is shown again, and now the axis only goes halfway up the globe.

Continuity mistake: When the villagers are marching to the castle, in a wide shot Gaston holds the mirror with his left hand, but in the next shot as he yells "We will siege to the castle" it's in his right hand.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice is taking his invention to the fair, there is a covering over the machine with a brown patch on it. But in the shot where Maurice says "It's a shortcut, Phillipe", the patch is now white. Also, when Phillipe comes back to the house later, and Belle takes the machine off him, the patch has disappeared.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the film the Beast smashes through the glass window and a lot of it lands on the balcony. When Belle is with the wounded Beast, the glass has vanished.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice is gathering his belongings and says, "Somehow I'll get her out of there.", to the side of the door there is an umbrella and a coat hanging slightly to the right of it. However, when Gaston bursts in, shouting, "Belle? Maurice?" the coat is now hanging directly over the umbrella.

Continuity mistake: When Belle approaches the West Wing, she sees a door and there is one statue holding candles next to it. However, when Belle runs out, there are statues on both sides.

Continuity mistake: When the Beast shows Belle her room, she walks in, and in the wideshot when the Beast says "Now if you need anything...", you can see the whole tiled floor around and under the bed is bare. Then seconds later when Belle runs to her bed crying, and the camera pans out the window, there is a large rug on the previously bare floor.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Chip rides Maurices woodcutter towards the cellar, between shots the barn door goes from open to closed.

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Potts, Chip and the milk and sugar pot enter Belle's bedroom, they make some tea in Chip, who then hops over to Belle. After they pour and make the tea in Chip, as he hops off, in a closeup you can see the milk pot is standing beside Mrs. Potts and the sugar pot is next to the milk pot. Then when it cuts to a wider view, the milk and sugar pot have swapped places with each other.

Hamster

Continuity mistake: When Maurices invention explodes, Belle runs to the house and into the cellar. As she enters, you can see the area in front and around the stove/fireplace is empty. However after talking for a while, Belle says "...oh Papa, he's not for me" and sits down on a wooden stool which has suddenly appeared in front of the stove/fireplace.
