Continuity mistake: When Belle is taking her book back in a basket at the start of the film, its colour changes from red to blue, back to red, then purple in the book shop owner's hand, then finally red on the shelf. (00:03:00)
Gaston falls off the castle to his death, but not before he wounds the Beast. The Beast is about to die, but Belle says she loves him before the last rose petal falls. He is turned back into the prince by a magical "shot" transformation, and all the other objects turn back into people with a "whoosh", and they have a wedding for Belle and the Prince. However, only the aftermath is shown with Belle and the prince dancing with the castle personnel arguing with each other and Chip still having cup tendencies, which the senior citizens of the story find charming.
Question: The timing of the Beast's curse has always confused me. The movie states he has until the rose wilts completely to break the spell, and that said rose will bloom until his twenty first year. So was the Beast's deadline his 21st birthday or would the rose begin to wilt on his 21st birthday and he would then have only a little under a year (judging from how much time appears to pass in the film) till all the petals fell off?
