Continuity mistake: After Maurice is thrown out of the tavern Gaston whispers his plan to LeFou, and when they begin to dance we see an angled wall with a dart board, bow and arrows, but the problem is that angled wall with the dart board, bow and arrows did not exist in the overhead shot, right before Maurice walked in.

Continuity mistake: When Belle is reading her book before Gaston walks in to propose, the bellows hangs from a hook on the fireplace stones under the mantle, but when Gaston is talking to Belle the bellows now hangs directly from the wood mantle, though it's back to the original way when Gaston knocks over the rocking chair.

Continuity mistake: During Gaston's song, when they sing "Give five hurrahs, give twelve hip-hips," LeFou's beer tankard switches from his left hand to his right hand, between shots. Additionally, one of the wall's wood beams near the fireplace has vanished behind LeFou, then reappears. The same thing happens again later, after they toss Maurice out the door.

Continuity mistake: Right before Belle's father enters the tavern, watch the bar on the left: First there's just one man. The father enters and a bartender plus a guy next to him appears. Then Gaston asks "Who's got Belle locked up in a dungeon?", and all three disappear. Then the father says "A beast", and the bartender and first villager appear, but not the second man.

Continuity mistake: In the 'Gaston' song sequence, near the end, Gaston is sitting in his huge antler chair with Lefou. In the wide shot, there is a bear rug behind the chair. The camera does a close up of Gaston, then in the next wide shot, the chair is on top of the bear rug. Also, after this, Gaston gets up off of the chair and in the next shot, both the chair and the rug disappear completely. (00:29:20)

More trivia for Beauty and the Beast

Question: The timing of the Beast's curse has always confused me. The movie states he has until the rose wilts completely to break the spell, and that said rose will bloom until his twenty first year. So was the Beast's deadline his 21st birthday or would the rose begin to wilt on his 21st birthday and he would then have only a little under a year (judging from how much time appears to pass in the film) till all the petals fell off?

Answer: The Rose started wilting at The Beast's 21st birthday and could have presumably started wilting years before the first time we saw a petal fall off. Given the fact that Lumiere stated that they were living with the curse for 10 years, prince Adam could be 23-24 years old at the time of the original movie,13-14 at the time of the curse, and the Rose could have been wilting for two to three years. This is my best guess given the approximate age of Prince Adam in the ripped up portrait before he was the Beast.

Answer: I would assume it would be until his 21st birthday, as that is really the 21st year since his birth. After his 21st birthday he'd be older than 21.
