Corrected entry: After Belle has run away after being scolded by the beast in the west wing, she is attacked by wolves. The beast saves her, but is injured and collapses to the ground. In the next scene, you see Belle leading Phillipe back to the castle with the Beast slumped over the back of the horse. How did Belle get someone as big as the beast on the horse?
Corrected entry: In the opening sequence of the film it shows the Beast falling into despair. He claws a portrait of himself (in human form). The direction he tears this painting is from the top left to the bottom right. Later, when Belle sneaks into the West Wing and finds this painting, it is torn from the top right to the bottom left. (00:01:50 - 00:43:50)
Corrected entry: Gaston's surprise wedding ceremony is a considerable extensive do up, incorporating several tables, a full wedding feast, elaborate decorations, a band and half the town populace in attendance. Belle is then shown to be inside her house reading a book, and apparently none the wiser that a wedding was planned for her as she acts both surprised and shocked when Gaston brings it up and she later sings about it. Seems a bit of a stretch that Belle was apparently at home during the many hours it would've taken to build that whole shindig and never once went outside to do chores or even look out a window. To further compound the believability of this scene, the wedding set up is then revealed to be right outside her front door meaning she would also have been able to hear any sounds of people constructing decorations, setting down tables, tuning instruments or getting food ready and just dismiss them as no big deal.
Corrected entry: When Gaston is trying to get to Belle through the bustling market, as the camera pans into the market and we hear the lines "Good Day" "Bonjour" "You call this bacon" "What lovely grapes", to the left of the screen you can see two signs hanging up. The first reads "La Puissance" and is for a fish stall. The correct term would probably be "Le Poisson." Secondly there is a pig shaped sign which reads "Le Jamon" - this should be "Le Jambon", which means "ham". (00:06:50)
Corrected entry: How did the villagers know where to find the Beast's castle? They are obviously not aware of it when Belle tells them about it, and Belle and Maurice are the only people who do know and they are locked up in a cellar. Also, it obviously takes about a day's traveling, as seen when Maurice and Belle come, but they are able to make the journey in about an hour, even though they also have to take the time to chop down and carry a tree.
Corrected entry: When the objects are attacking the villagers, you can see that they are using fresh tomatoes. But there are none growing around the castle, especially since it is in the snowy mountains, and none of the objects ever left the castle after they were enchanted. They have been enchanted for many years, and the tomatoes would have been VERY rotten.
Corrected entry: Since the prince had been turned into a beast his entire castle has become overwhelmed with darkness. All of the figurines in the castle are gargoyles, demon looking figures, dragons, etc., but when Belle and the Beast are dancing in the ballroom the camera pans the ceiling, where there are many angels looking and watching the two. This should not have been possible since everything didn't become angelic until he was turned back into a human.
Corrected entry: During the beginning of the 'No one's like Gaston' song scene, Lefou or Gaston throws a stein of beer into the fire and it flames up significantly. Beer does not burn like other, stronger types of alcohol, it would have just put the fire out.
Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, the Beast turns into a prince, and all of the furniture and other housewares (clock, plates, tea set, etc. etc. etc.) turn back into people as the enchantment on the house and its inhabitants ends. If all of the furniture in the house was once people, then what did this prince use for furniture in the first place?
Corrected entry: Did the people in the castle age after they were turned into household objects? The Beast has until his 21st birthday to fall in love, and Lumiere specifically states that they've been like that for ten years. So was the Beast 11 years old when he was transformed? If so, where was Chip, who appears to be about five or six? Was he even born? Can teapots produce little teacups?
Corrected entry: During the "Gaston" song sequence, we can obviously hear Gaston sing, "In a wresting match, nobody bites like Gaston", but his mouth doesn't move.
