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: In the scene after the wolf attack, Belle is trying to put a cloth to the Beast's wounds, and they then shout at each other. When the Beast yells "Well you shouldn't have been in the West Wing," you can see that he has three slashes on his arm. Then when Belle puts the cloth on the wounds, there are suddenly four slashes.
Continuity mistake: When Gaston has his feet on the table, the amount of mud on the book and tablecloth changes between shots.
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. Then when it cuts, Belle is suddenly kneeling on the red part of the rug and the bowl sits on the red part too, and the Beasts chair is now sitting atop the large white design.
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: 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: 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!
