Shrek Forever After

Continuity mistake: Rumplestiltskin looks completely different in this movie than he did in the previous film Shrek The Third; Prince Charming momentarily talks to Rumplestiltskin in the tavern during the third film, and the character looks completely different, has a different voice and different demeanor.


Continuity mistake: When Shrek and Fiona are fighting the dragon, the amount of chain between Shrek and the dragon changes after he wraps the chain around the dragon's tail.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Shrek goes back to the swamp after signing the contract, he realizes that Fiona isn't there and pulls out the contract to read it. He then notices something flying overhead and looks up to see the witches. In the next shot, we see no contract in Shrek's open hands. (00:22:30)

Continuity mistake: Fifi the goose changes size throughout the film. From small enough to fit on Rumpelstiltskin's lap, to big enough to pull the cart.

Suggested correction: The goose has magical powers that likely allows it to change size in the film. The scene where the goose jumps on Rumpel's lap is in the past, also. So likely when the goose was a lot younger.

Continuity mistake: In the scene when Pinocchio arrives to request Rumpelstiltskin to convert him into a real kid there's nothing on the table but goblets and kind of cakes, after Rumpelstiltskin asks to the wolf his wig, he suddenly takes the contract from the table and on it appears the feather and ink that Pinocchio uses to sign the contract.

Continuity mistake: Rumplestiltskin calls Fifi at the start and plucks a feather from the goose. In the next shot, it is perfectly sharpened and ready to use. (00:03:10)

Continuity mistake: When Shrek does a cannonball jump in the pig pen, the wider shot doesn't show the pigs anywhere in the pen after they ran away.

Continuity mistake: It was morning when Shrek enters the castle, because Donkey shouted to Shrek, "and find us some breakfast." And after leaving the castle, Donkey found a waffle and got pulled toward the ogres' hiding place. Once inside the hiding place, Shrek tried to take Donkey away from becoming a "dinner" by saying "Your dinner is my friend." Immediately Fiona showed up as an ogre, which confirms that it has suddenly become night. (00:36:30 - 00:41:05)

Continuity mistake: When Shrek and Fiona are fighting the dragon, the amount of chain between Shrek and the dragon changes after he wraps the chain around the dragon's tail.

Question: Why did the king and queen disappear when the king signed the contract? The deal was that Fiona will be saved from the curse if he did - but Fiona wasn't saved at all. Was the contract void from something?

Answer: Rumpelstiltskin used a contract that 'made all their problems disappear'. He didn't reference any specific problem and the king and queen assumed it would cure the curse. However, it just makes the king and queen disappear, and since they have disappeared, they will no longer have any problems.
