Continuity mistake: When Mrs. Potts, Chip and the milk and sugar pot enter Belle's bedroom, they make some tea in Chip, who then hops over to Belle. After they pour and make the tea in Chip, as he hops off, in a closeup you can see the milk pot is standing beside Mrs. Potts and the sugar pot is next to the milk pot. Then when it cuts to a wider view, the milk and sugar pot have swapped places with each other. (00:30:30)
Continuity mistake: The large front doors to the castle open inwards, as seen when Maurice and Belle enter the castle for their first time. However when Belle makes her deal with the Beast, to stay with him forever, the Beast takes Maurice outside, however he opens the doors outwards. (00:13:05 - 00:23:05)
Continuity mistake: When the villagers burst into the castle using the tree trunk, they put it down in front of the door, but later it's gone.
Continuity mistake: When Maurice is gathering his belongings and says, "Somehow I'll get her out of there.", to the side of the door there is an umbrella and a coat hanging slightly to the right of it. However, when Gaston bursts in, shouting, "Belle? Maurice?" the coat is now hanging directly over the umbrella.
Continuity mistake: When the Beast shows Belle her room, she walks in, and in the wideshot when the Beast says "Now if you need anything...", you can see the whole tiled floor around and under the bed is bare. Then seconds later when Belle runs to her bed crying, and the camera pans out the window, there is a large rug on the previously bare floor. (00:24:40)
Continuity mistake: In the kitchen, the stove says "I work and I slave all day long, and for what?" and the stone wall behind him is bare. Then when it cuts to a close-up of him saying "A culinary masterpiece gone to waste," two shelves have suddenly appeared on the wall behind him, with pots, pans and utensils on them! (00:35:30)
Continuity mistake: When Maurice is getting ready to go back to find Belle, and is pocketing compasses and rolls of paper, he takes a scarf from a drawer, leaving the drawer pulled open, with a red scarf hanging out of it. Then when Gaston and Le Fou enter the house, the drawer is pushed shut with no red scarf hanging out. (00:48:45)
Continuity mistake: When Belle and the Beast eat breakfast, in the scene where the Beast gets covered in porridge, in front of Belle is a decorated glass and a basket of rolls with a napkin over the top. In front of the Beast is just a decorated glass. During shots we see neither one, nor anyone else touch these items. However in the final shot of the whole table, in which Belle and the Beast raise up their bowls, the basket of rolls and the Beasts glass have both disappeared. (00:51:15)
Continuity mistake: Adding to the mistake about the bear rug moving around, it also changes physical form. Sometimes it is a light brown, fat and un-realistic looking. Other times it can be seen as a dark brown/black flat bear which looks very real. This change occurs many times during the scene.
Continuity mistake: Whilst Maurice sits in the Masters chair, Cogsworth is knocked down by the trolley with Mrs. Potts on it, and he falls down on the large red part of the carpet. It then cuts to Mrs. Potts, then back to Cogsworth who is still lying down, however now he's suddenly lying on the white part of the rug. (00:15:00)
