Beauty and the Beast

Continuity mistake: When the Beast is waiting for Belle to come to dinner, there is a fireplace with statues of lions on either sides and a pillow next to one of them. However, a few seconds later, the pillow is now in front of the statue.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Maurice's Rube Goldberg-ish woodcutting invention works for the first time, we see the piece of wood fly over onto the stack. There is no window there or anything made of glass for that matter, yet in the next shot we hear glass breaking from the wood flying over there.

Continuity mistake: At the end of the Provincial Life song, Gaston is singing from among the crowd and he doesn't have his gun. He climbs up the side of the building without his gun, but when he pops out of the window onto the roof he has his gun. When he pops in front of Belle on the street, the gun is gone again. (00:07:05)

Audio problem: During the scene near the end when the enchanted objects are fighting Gaston's gang, there is a close-up of a pot landing on a guy's head and then starts banging on it. The clanging sounds we hear do not match with what we see.

Continuity mistake: After Maurice is thrown out of the tavern Gaston whispers his plan to LeFou, and when they begin to dance we see an angled wall with a dart board, bow and arrows, but the problem is that angled wall with the dart board, bow and arrows did not exist in the overhead shot, right before Maurice walked in.

Continuity mistake: During Gaston's song, when they sing "Give five hurrahs, give twelve hip-hips," LeFou's beer tankard switches from his left hand to his right hand, between shots. Additionally, one of the wall's wood beams near the fireplace has vanished behind LeFou, then reappears. The same thing happens again later, after they toss Maurice out the door.
