Selena

Visible crew/equipment: When Abraham is introducing the roles of what the children are going to play, he demonstrates what Suzette is going to do on the drums and falls back. If you see under him, you see a kind of pillow to break his fall. When the shot changes you see that it's not there.

Continuity mistake: When Selena is singing "Como La Flor" in Mexico after the crowd was pushing into the stage, her mouth doesn't match the words to the song. Her mouth is a few words ahead of the song.

Abraham: We have to be more Mexican than the Mexicans and more American than the Americans, both at the same time! It's exhausting.

Question: Pete Astudillo is in the first scene when Selena was at the Houston Astrodome on February 26, 1995. He left the Dinos in 1993. I watched the original video of that same concert and another guy was on stage her, not Pete Astudillo. Was this a mistake or did they just keep it uniform for the movie?

Answer: Pete left in 1993 to pursue his music career. Selena then hired Freddy who was part of the Barrio Boyz. Selena sang a song with them called Donde Quiera Que Estes. Thus when Pete left, Freddy became a part of the Dinos along with Don who also appears in the film next to Pete Astudillo.
