Frozen II picture

Continuity mistake: When Anna's singing "The next right thing" she puts a bag on her shoulder, with the strap on top of her hair. After the camera spins round her, her hair is suddenly underneath the strap. This bears a strong similarity to the mistake in the original Frozen where Elsa's hair passes through her shoulder - might be a deliberate nod, or else animating hair around objects is difficult enough that shortcuts are often taken.

Continuity mistake: The two cucumber slices that Jesper puts in the palm of the Drill Sergeant change position between shots - in particular, in the close-up with Jesper walking away and putting the teacup in his hand as well, the two slices are side by side, while they are instead one on top of the other before and after.
