With the fifth instalment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise ‘Dead Men Tell no Tales’ just coming out, did you notice the mistakes Disney made in Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl?
Disney are at the forefront of film-making, especially when it comes to their animated movies. As a company they pay attention to detail, and they do their research… most of the time that is. The guys at Disney are only human, and sometimes they make mistakes. Here at Screen Rant we’ve found ten of those mistakes, from animation errors, to factual ones, and continuity errors, and we have put them all here for your entertainment.
Animation is a tricky medium to work with – you get total creative control, but that also means you get total human error, and sometimes things can be easy to overlook. Pocahontas, Mulan, Cinderella, Alice in Wonderland and Frozen all feature animation errors in the shape of independent shadows, strangely behaved ink, transforming dresses, inconsistent proportions and swords which come out of no-where. Pirates of the Caribbean, Hercules, and Tarzan all feature factual errors, and the Beauty and the Beast and Toy Story suffer from continuity errors, with the Beast tearing a human portrait of him which is older than he was when he was cursed, and Buzz acts like a Toy when he doesn’t think he is.
