Best Disney movie plot holes of all time


Bolt (2008)

Bolt picture

Plot hole: At the start of the movie, a great deal is made of the boom mic that enters the shot. This is ridiculous, because Bolt's view would not be restricted to what was onscreen, he'd have a perfect view of the person holding the boom mic (as evidenced by it not being stable). There's no possibility of him not seeing the person holding the mic either. As Bolt completely and utterly believes the world he lives in, and thinks the situations he finds himself in (saving Penny) are real, someone holding a boom mic would break the illusion for him. In ALL instances in the movie where an outside force (i.e. Dog handler) interacts with him, Bolt never gets to see the person handling him (handler approaches from behind), the boom mic operator however is literally right in front of him.

Treasure Planet picture

Plot hole: During the nova scene, everyone is tying down the sails after securing themselves with lifelines to the mast. Jim and Silver are on the front and Silver is knocked off. Jim is then all dramatic and runs to grab Silver's lifeline which seems to be coming from above, and pulls Silver up like a pulley. How come? The lifelines were attached to the mast, so Jim's action is pointless... even if he could do it, because a shot later both lifelines are streaming right to the mast, leaving no room for a pulley of any sort.

Atlantis: The Lost Empire picture

Plot hole: There is no way that 'coast of Iceland' could ever have been mistranslated as 'coast of Ireland'. For this to have happened, they would have had to have thought that the 'C' rune was an 'R' rune, but they had already deciphered the word 'coast', so they knew what the 'C' rune was. The 'O's are the same rune and the 'A's are the same rune, plus there is one rune for every letter, so it it's a direct letter-by-letter translation.

Beauty and the Beast picture

Plot hole: Early in the film, we see the enchanted rose, and then the camera zooms away from the Beast's room and the castle. We see that there are several aspects of the castle that change during the Beast's fight with Gaston. For instance, in this shot we see that there is no window and the room opens directly to the balcony. This changes later. Second, the space along the roof is not as wide as it later is, and definitely not wide enough to have a fight. Third, we see strange statues of creatures that later appear in the fight- but no long row of these creatures such as appears later.

Plot hole: After Little John bores a hole in the bottom of the treasure box, several gold coins fall through the hole. The four rhinos holding the box should have noticed it becoming lighter.

Frozen (2013)

Frozen picture

Plot hole: As long as Elsa had the gloves, there was no need to keep her away from Anna. I know her powers were still noticeable with them, but she couldn't harm Anna with them. The point of keeping her away from Anna was to protect her.

Home on the Range picture

Plot hole: In the scene where the Sheriff stops the cows' brawl, he gives them to the Chinese man. The Sheriff knows what Pearl's animals look like, so why didn't he recognize the cows as Pearl's?

Chicken Little picture

Plot hole: Even if Chicken Little was tagged out when he hit home plate, the game was already tied so his team would still have a chance to win the pennant.

Oliver and Company picture

Plot hole: When Sykes chases the gang down the subway, Fagin has to lurch to the left to end up on the subway tracks. However, Sykes couldn't do this because his car is to big to fit. Instead, his car jumps onto the subway tracks as if he were on a platform that separated the tracks, which subway tracks most certainly do not have.
