The Nutcracker

Continuity mistake: When Marie and Nutcracker are in Christmas Wood, some shooting stars fall to them and turn into sugar plums. In the first shot there are 3 of them, but when it cuts to the next shot where they turn into plums, suddenly there are 5. Then when the plums come down and begin circling around Nutcracker and Marie, there are 8 of them.

Continuity mistake: During their final fight, the Mouse King knocks the Nutcracker back against the wall and prepares to finish him off. The Nutcracker counters by grabbing the rug the Mouse King is standing on and tripping him, leaving the rug wrinkled and messy. A few shots later, the rug is suddenly perfectly placed on the floor again.

More quotes from The Nutcracker


Question: In this version of the story, why does the Mouse King have seven heads?

Quantom X

Answer: The original 1816 story "The Nutcracker and the Mouse King" by ETA Hoffmann features the seven-headed Mouse King. Since then there have been numerous adaptations and re-imaginings of that story in literature, on stage and screen in different forms. In the classic versions the Mouse King has seven heads wearing seven crowns, other versions he has only one head, and in a few versions three heads. In the original and other adaptations the number seven is specified several times: Marie Stahlbaum is seven yrs old; the seven-headed Mouse King; the seven steps backwards; seven little crowns. The makers of this animated movie chose to feature the classic Mouse King.
