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.
