Corrected entry: There is a very sudden change in the seasons partway through the movie. In the first part where Belle is in the town and later dancing and singing in her meadow, it is spring or summer. Later that day, after she's gone to the castle and rescued her father, then had her dinner with the dancing dishes, she decides to run away, and what do you know there's snow. It stays winter for a while until Gaston and crew go charging out to kill the Beast, at which point it starts raining.
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: In the scene where Beast gives Belle the library, he takes her into the very dark library with her eyes closed. We then see Belle's face react to the sound of Beast opening two or three curtains and we see the room grow lighter. He tells Belle to open her eyes and we are visually journeyed through the room as Belle sees it. There are many very large, high windows that the beast could not have made it to and we did not hear him open their curtains in that space of time.
Corrected entry: In the Provincial Life song, as Gaston walks by three blonde girls, there is water flowing out of the fountain, but in the next shot it's not.
Corrected entry: Philippe has whites in his eyes. It's impossible to see the whites in horses' eyes.
Corrected entry: Wolves generally aren't found in the French countryside yet they feature a few times in the film.
Corrected entry: When the beast changes back into a human at the end, he looks the exact same as in the painting of himself that he destroyed; yet he was meant to have been cursed for 10 years or so, according to Lumiere. His appearance would have changed somewhat in that time.
Corrected entry: The beast is about Belle's age, maybe only a little older; yet in the opening scene where we see him be cursed, he is the same age as he is throughout the rest of the film, 10 years after he had the curse placed on him; in that opening scene telling of his misfortune, he should have been a young boy, not a man.
Corrected entry: One of the signs in the village reads "Le boucherie". In French grammar, "Le" comes before masculine words, and "La" comes before feminine words. "Boucherie" is a feminine word, so the correct French term should be "La boucherie".
Corrected entry: During the end the clock slides down the stairway. At the end of the stairway is a big post, but he slides right off, never hitting the post. (01:15:55)
Corrected entry: When Cogsworth is giving the tour he says 'If I may call your attention to the Flying Buttresses'. Flying Buttresses are supports on the exterior of a building; unless there are very large windows (there are none in the hallway where he is giving the tour), you cannot see them from the inside. (00:41:25)
Corrected entry: When the horse Phillipe comes back, Belle is on a grass covered hill far away from the house. When she takes the machine off of Phillipe, the machine is still in the cart and the brown cover is on. Later in the film, when Belle and Maurice are stuck in the cover, Chip sees this machine and it is much closer to the house, the grass on the field is gone, the machine is out of the cart and the cover is no longer there.
Corrected entry: During the "Be Our Guest" song, the spoons all jump into a pink dessert and they all have napkins tied around themselves. When they surface again, the napkins are gone.
Corrected entry: Even though this movie is set in France, the bald eagle, the grizzly bear, and many other animals that are native to the Americas can be seen in Gaston's bar.
