Beauty and the Beast
Beauty and the Beast mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Belle says good morning to Jean Potts, when she feeds the apple to the donkey note the rope (crosstie) is tied off at the donkey's throat, but in the next closeup the rope is tied off directly to the halter knot at its cheek.

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the movie for the song "Belle", her dress is tucked into her belt, exposing her under undergarments, for majority of the song. Then when she enters the library to exchange her book, her dress is down. (00:04:50 - 00:06:30)

Continuity mistake: When Belle finds her father locked up she's holding her stick with one hand, then the angle changes and she's using both. We switch back and she's using one hand again.

Continuity mistake: When Belle goes to the castle to rescue her father, her father takes the horse back, but when Belle runs away the horse is still there.

Continuity mistake: When Gaston and Le Fou approach the village on horseback, they watch Belle through a telescope. In the shot from behind, Le Fou has to stretch out to reach the telescope when Gaston passes it across and his fingers barely touch the end of it, but when the view changes to the front the horses are closer together and he is holding the telescope firmly in the middle.

Continuity mistake: When Le Fou enters the castle, he's holding a torch to his left - angle changes and it's suddenly to his right. The angle changes back, and it's back on the left again.

Continuity mistake: After Belle gets the bread from the baker while she's singing, when she stops at the horse we see the halter rope looped twice around the horse's muzzle, but next shot it's wound around only once.

Continuity mistake: In the opening number, Belle picks up a loaf of bread at the start and puts it in a bag around her waist. Later in the number it's not there. There's a deleted scene which explains the disappearance, but with that scene missing, the bread just disappears for no reason, hence it's a mistake.

Continuity mistake: Gaston fires at the ceiling and debris falls all over, but in the next shots the debris is gone.

Continuity mistake: When the Gaston song is about to start, he says "Imagine Le Fou..." and Le Fou's arm swaps from resting on Gaston's chair to bent, between angles.

Continuity mistake: When we see Belle and her father talking for the first time, Belle's hair is behind her, hanging down her back. Then you see it resting on her shoulder. Throughout the entire scene, her hair changes between falling down her back or resting on her shoulder.

Continuity mistake: Right before Le Fou starts the Gaston song, the way Gaston holds the knife (when he says "A hunter...") changes between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Belle exits her house singing, in the front shot the building to the right in in shadow. The angle changes and it's suddenly much brighter.

Continuity mistake: In the opening song "Belle" - Belle exits her house wearing brown lace up boots. When she then helps the little girl to read, she is wearing espadrilles. When she leaves her house to sing the reprise "Madam, Gaston, can't you just see it" she is wearing espadrilles. Later when Phillipe the horse returns without her father, Maurice, Belle is wearing brown boots again and enters the castle wearing them. Then when she is with the beast and stood on the ladder choosing books - she has espadrilles on again. Her shoes alternate throughout the whole film.

Continuity mistake: Phillipe (the horse) runs away, after being shocked by the wolves. He still has the harness and chains on to pull the carriage. When Maurice jumps on his back, however, the chains and harness is not there anymore. Philippe only has the rein on.
