The Hunchback of Notre Dame

Other mistake: During the "Hellfire" sequence, when Frollo is singing "God have mercy on her, God have mercy on me...", his shadow against the wall behind him rises as he backs up closer to the wall. However, when he turns around to press against the wall, his shadow ends up far above his body when it should have become level with his body by that point - like the very next close-up shot of Frollo shows, which is itself a continuity error.

Factual error: During the song "A Guy Like You," one of the gargoyles trips the trapdoor on Quasimodo's miniature hangman's scaffold. Trapdoors weren't used on scaffolds until the 18th century.

Trivia: When Quasimodo is singing a few minutes into the film, he is standing above the town street where people are walking around, doing business. If you look closely to the lower right of the scene, you can see Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" reading a book in her blue dress, walking.
