Kung Fu Panda

Plot hole: Zeng the duck is sent away to Chorh-Gom prison by Shifu before Shifu and Oogway discuss the dragon scroll and the dragon warrior. While the selection ceremony is underway at the Jade Palace, Commander Vachir is touring Zeng around the prison far away. Neither Commander Vachir nor Zeng knew about the decision to select a dragon warrior, but Vachir says to Tai Lung, "Hey, tough guy! Did you hear? Oogway is about to give someone the Dragon Scroll, and it's not gonna be you." While we as viewers know about the scroll (dramatic irony), none of the characters in the prison scenes knew about the dragon warrior selection, and could not have told Tai Lung. Without this revelation, Tai Lung has no motivation to escape. (00:06:45 - 00:18:20)

Continuity mistake: When Shifu performs the Wuxi finger hold on Po, in one shot, we see all of Po's fingers, except the one Shifu is holding, are closed to his palm. In the next shot, all his fingers are open. (00:22:05)
