The main difference between an animated feature and live-action is the creators of an animation seem to have a lot more control. In live-action, mistakes can occur due to bad lightning, sound interference, visible crew members, poor editing, or inconsistent continuity.
But in animation, workers usually don't have to worry about problems like this. Artists render or handdraw every hair fibre, map out every object, and colour every scene. After creating an entire movie frame-by-frame and pixel-by-pixel, you'd assume the artists know their work inside-out.
But no matter how hard-working these cartoonists are or how much time and money the studio put into an animated feature, mistakes are unavoidable. Even though Disney is one of the world's most powerful companies, their animated films aren't devoid of blunders. We're not talking about blink-and-you'll-miss-it flubs. We are talking about mistakes so glaring, you'll can't understand how the animators didn't notice them.
What makes these errors so frustrating is some of them occur in the closing shot or during an emotional and tender scene. Instead of being invested in a powerful moment, the viewer may be distracted by a character's outfit changing or a person's eye colour switching from scene to scene. Here are ten Disney movie mistakes that you can never unsee, no matter how hard you try.
