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.
Corrected entry: The first two times the magic mirror is used, we see the background of the place the characters were in (i.e. Belle's room, the forest) but when Belle uses the mirror to show the villagers the beast, there is a white background. Shouldn't we have seen the background of the room he was in (presumably the West Wing)?
Corrected entry: When all the enchanted objects are in front of the door, blocking the villagers from entering, you can see the door is brown. When the villagers burst in in a few seconds, the door is green.
Corrected entry: Maurice is sitting in his chair when suddenly the beast bursts in. An entire fire goes out. But the small flames on Lumiere's candles don't. How is that possible?
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: 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: The villagers slice down a tree so that they can break through the door of the castle. The tree has many branches on it, but when they are at the castle all of the branches are gone- there aren't even any stubs left.
Corrected entry: In the famous ball scene in the middle of the movie, not only is Belle wearing short sleeves (with long gloves) but there is green foliage outside on the balcony when they go out to watch the stars. You can even hear crickets in the background. In all previous scenes at the castle and most of those coming after, it is the middle of winter. The castle may be enchanted, but we have seen Belle walking her horse and feeding birds in the snow, and when she leaves to look for her father it is also mid-winter. Even if the Beast had some very strange looking evergreens dotted around his balcony, there would never be crickets outside.
