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: In the opening song sequence, there are three blonde girls singing about Gaston next to a water pump. But in a front shot of Gaston walking through the city as they sing, it is a barrel, not a pump, that they are gathered around.

Continuity mistake: When Maurice first enters the castle you can see that the carpet leading to the staircase is very long. When Belle enters the carpet is shorter.

Continuity mistake: When Gaston says he'll make Belle his wife a woman with a grey colored hair suddenly appears out of nowhere in the close-up. (00:07:58)

Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Potts puts Chip into the cupboard, the handles change style and colour: from gold to black. Also, the carvings on the wood become blue painted for a brief shot.

Continuity mistake: Beast bursts into the West Wing, uses the magic mirror and puts it on the table. A shot later it has vanished. Note the shape of the rose between both shots and you'll notice that it's not an opposite angle. The mirror is definitely gone.

Continuity mistake: When the first song ends, Belle has left the village behind and all the crowd watches her ten meters away. In the close-up and the following scenes with Gaston, she's now very close to the crowd plus a baker with a wheelbarrow has suddenly appeared.

Continuity mistake: When the three girls watch Gaston, the wall on their right has a chipping on the painting with visible bricks underneath. In the wide angle, the wall is fixed and the bricks are now visible in the second section of the wall.

Continuity mistake: Belle walks by the main street and the stalls, signs and number of people change between the close shots and the wide angle; check a blue pig-shaped sign called "Le jamon": a shot later it's round and brown colored.

Continuity mistake: When Gaston tries to walk between the crowd, check the way the characters have been animated: they step forward and then backwards over and over again, as if it were a loop or a bug in a videogame. (00:07:31)

Beast: I want to do something for her - but what?
Cogsworth: Oh there's the usual things. Flowers, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep.
