The Nutcracker

Continuity mistake: In the beginning of the film when it is showing several townsfolk mingling in the snowy streets, a horse drawn carriage with a driver and a woman holding a present goes by a brick house. A few shots later after you see a guy waving, the same carriage with passengers goes by, again in the same direction.

Continuity mistake: In the montage of mice getting tricked by the traps Drosselmeier made, the second set is two mice jumping on the bed. Behind then is a table with candle and a cup. When it cuts to a close up of the mice, the candle is smaller and the cup changes shape.

Continuity mistake: During their fight, the Seven Headed Mouse King knocks the Nutcracker’s sword away and the Nutcracker escapes by grabbing the draw string of the curtains and swings up to a small table. The Mouse King looks up at him a moment, right next to the draw string, very close to the table. He then runs towards it. The shot cuts to a different angle and suddenly he is much further away, running towards the table.

More quotes from The Nutcracker


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

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.
