Beauty and the Beast

Continuity mistake: In the 'Gaston' song sequence, near the end, Gaston is sitting in his huge antler chair with Lefou. In the wide shot, there is a bear rug behind the chair. The camera does a close up of Gaston, then in the next wide shot, the chair is on top of the bear rug. Also, after this, Gaston gets up off of the chair and in the next shot, both the chair and the rug disappear completely.

Continuity mistake: After the wolf attack, it fades to a shot of Belle who is pouring hot water out of Mrs. Potts, into a bowl. In this shot Belle is kneeling on the large white decorative design embroidered on the large red rug, and the little bowl also sits on the design too.

Continuity mistake: In the newer version of the film, there has been a new song called "Human Again" added. When standing at the foot of the stairs, Cogsworth replaces a cog in himself, opening his door, with the hinges on his right. All the other times he opens it though, the hinges are on the left.

Continuity mistake: When Gastons mob throw Belle and Maurice into the cellar, Belle then tries to wedge open the window with a long wooden pole. She fails, then turns to Maurice, leaving the pole sticking out and laying on the windowsill. Then when the shot changes and the camera pans to Chip looking through the window, the wooden pole has gone.

Continuity mistake: When Belle won't come out for dinner, the Beast storms off, slamming the door, so that bits of plaster fall from the roof, onto Lumiere, all over the floor. However in the final overhead shot of this scene, the plaster has vanished from the floor.

Continuity mistake: In the scene after Gaston proposes to Belle, Belle walks out of the door and then to the barn. As she passes the cellar doors, saying "...Me. The wife of that borish, brainless...", you can see that there is a small window either side of the cellar doors. However, later on into the film, when Maurice and Belle are trapped in the cellar, Chip gets Maurices invention to work. Then, as the machine hurtles towards the cellar doors, the small window on the left side of the cellar doors has vanished!

When the pot strikes him and he falls to the floor, you can see there is no metal pole running across the bottom of the bar. In every other shot of the bar, there is a metal pole which runs across the bottom of it.

Continuity mistake: When Belle is trying to get up the stairs to the West Wing, and Cogsworth and Lumiere are trying to stop her, when Belle says "You have a library", you can see that Belle is standing six steps up from the foot of the stairs, and that Lumiere and Cogsworth are standing on the seventh step up from the foot. However when it then cuts, and they all start to climb back down the stairs, Belle is now on the third step up from the foot and Cogsworth and Lumiere are on the fourth.

Hamster

Deliberate mistake: At the end of the film, Gaston shoots the Beast with an arrow and pushes the Beast out the window. When the Beast lands on the edge of the castle rooftop, the arrow has disappeared. Even if part of the arrow has broken off, a piece of it would still be in his back. [This, like many other incidents in the film, is a longtime Disney animated tradition. The company seems to believe that violence is less unpleasant if all evidence of it disappears quickly. This is why so many cuts seem to disappear or become less serious. The arrow vanishing is just another example.]

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Beast gives Belle the library, the Beast is wearing a white long-sleeved shirt. When the shot changes to wider view of the Beast and Belle with Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, and Chip in the foreground, look carefully at the Beast. As he holds hands outwards with Belle, the white sleeves are gone.

Audio problem: During the fight scene at the end, Gaston says, "It's over, Beast. Belle is mine." But, originally, Gaston said "time to die" instead of "Belle is mine." (They wanted to involve Belle more in this scene, and decided to simply overdub the line). Unfortunately, you can tell what's been done, for Gaston's lips still say "time to die."

Continuity mistake: When Lumiere and Cogsworth are trying to persuade Belle not to go up the stairs to the West Wing, they start suggesting other places to go. When Lumiere says "..the gardens, or the library.." you can see that Cogsworth, Lumiere and Belle are all standing on the same step.

After Gaston stabs the Beast with his knife, the brown strap and quiver is still on. However it then cuts, and as he starts to fall, the brown strap of the quiver has gone. Then in the next shot the strap is back on, over his red shirt.

Factual error: There's a scene where Belle's father is riding away in the snow on his horse - the tracks left behind by the horse are exactly backwards. The round part of a horseshoe is at the front, not the back. (This was a deliberate 'in joke' done by the animators.)

Continuity mistake: When the trolley cart comes screeching through the lounge and knocks Cogsworth down, you see that Mrs. Potts, Chip and the milk and sugar pot are on the cart. Then when it cuts, and the trolley screeches to a halt beside Maurice, who's sitting down, the milk and the sugar pot have vanished from the trolley. In addition, after Maurice takes a sip out of Chip the teacup, in the following shot of the trolley, a spoon has appeared on it.

But when Belle is up in her room crying and Mrs. Potts comes to her door, Belle then approachs the door and we see the design on the door is now two large squares. However in the following shot of Mrs. Potts entering, saying "I thought you might like a spot of tea", the design has changed back to the curvy, spirally pattern.

Factual error: In the "No One's Great as Gaston" song (in the tavern) Gaston uses his blunderbuss to shoot three holes (three separate shots) in a barrel of beer. But a blunderbuss is a single-shot weapon. He would have to shoot, reload, shoot, reload, and shoot.

For instance, when he first transforms from a clock into a man, he comes up to about half of Lumiere's head, but when they argue, Cogsworth is taller than that. Then in the last shot, as it zooms out as Belle and the prince are dancing, he doesn't even come up to Lumiere's shoulders.

Continuity mistake: In the tavern, which is the setting for the 'Gaston' song, right at the end of the bar there is a thick wooden beam attached to the bar and the ceiling. You can see this beam clearly when Le Fou sings "No-one's slick as Gaston...", and he prances around and then grabs the beam.

Continuity mistake: It is said that the magical rose will start to wither until the Beast's 21st birthday, and in the song 'Be our Guest', everyone sings "It's ten years since we've had anybody here, and we're obsessed". So that would make the Beast only 11 years old when he turned away the Enchantress that put a spell on him, however he is portrayed as being much older-looking.

Continuity mistake: There is a scene with Belle and Beast dining. Beast wolfs down his meal out of the dish and his face is covered with food. Belle looks shocked, so Beast then tries to use a spoon and he is completely clean. Belle smiles sympathetically and Beast is covered with food in the next shot. When they are both eating directly from the bowl, Beast is clean again. It is the same meal. The food is missing from his face, although not an uncommon thing for animators (especially of kids films) to do on purpose, Disney probably wouldn't consider it a mistake, but rather, a convention, to make the characters always look their best.

Continuity mistake: When Belle meets Mrs Potts for the first time, Belle approaches the door to let her in.

But in the next shot when she opens the door (and when she is first shown her room), the door handles are diagonal "lever style" handles that you have to turn downward with your whole hand to open the door.

Factual error: After Gaston stabs the Beast in the fight sequence, there is no blood shown on the knife. [This is a longstanding Disney animation tradition. The House of Mouse seems to believe that onscreen violence is less traumatic if all evidence of it disappears quickly. Thus, you rarely see blood and when it IS seen it's usually minor, even if the wound isn't minor.]

Plot hole: Early in the film, we see the enchanted rose, and then the camera zooms away from the Beast's room and the castle. We see that there are several aspects of the castle that change during the Beast's fight with Gaston. For instance, in this shot we see that there is no window and the room opens directly to the balcony. This changes later. Second, the space along the roof is not as wide as it later is, and definitely not wide enough to have a fight. Third, we see strange statues of creatures that later appear in the fight- but no long row of these creatures such as appears later.

She's still wearing it when she runs over to the bed, kneels down and starts crying. When we see her again (after the Gaston scene which is in-between), she's no longer wearing the cloak, and she couldn't have removed it at any point because her position next to the bed hasn't changed since she started crying and she doesn't move again until Mrs Potts taps on the door to offer her a cup of tea.
