Corrected entry: About 10 to 15 minutes in the movie you see Gaston shooting his shotgun into the air at a flock of birds. In the next frame instead of seeing shotgun pellets flying through the air you see a half dozen arrows flying through the sky and killing one of the birds.
Corrected entry: When Belle is standing next to Gaston, we see that she is smaller than him, but not radically shorter. When we see Belle next to the beast, we see that while he is larger than her, he is not more than 2 feet taller than her. When Gaston and the beast are standing next to each other however, the beast towers over Gaston. Granted this was probably done on purpose, to have a man and a beast be the same size would be strange, however they didn't want the beast to seem gigantic next to Belle.
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: 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: 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?Krista
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.
Corrected entry: In the opening scenes, all the shops have signs in French except for the Bookseller's shop, which is in English.
Corrected entry: When Gaston first sees Belle coming out of the library he grabs her book and leafs through it and says "Belle, how can you read these books? There are no pictures in them." A couple of shots later Belle sits at the fountain to sing a song with the open book on her lap and there is a full page picture of a meadow with a stream in the book.
Corrected entry: Maurice (Belle's father) and Phillipe (their horse) are separated in the woods. Maurice is chased by the wolves and finds the castle by chance. When Phillipe returns home, Belle asks him to take her to her father, which he does. The horse had never been to the castle and could not have known where to have taken Belle.
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.
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)
Trivia: Though not revealed in the movie, the Prince's name is Adam. At the New Orleans Disneyworld, the Princess hotel rooms have portraits of each Disney prince. The 'Beauty & the Beast' prince is shown in human form and his name stated underneath as 'Prince Adam.' In addition, the officially licensed Disney Fisherprice 'Little People' sets include 'Belle and Prince Adam.'
