Beauty and The Beast - Age Mess-Up!
In the begining of the movie, the narrator clearly says that the enchanted rose will bloom until the Beast's 21st birthday. Then, later in the movie, during "Be Our Guest" Lumiere says "for 10 years we've been rusting needing so much more than dusting". This implies that they've been under the spell for 10 years. Therefore, when the spell was cast on them, the prince/beast must have been 11 years old. But in the beginning drawings, he already looks 21! OOPS!

If anyone here has seen Beauty and the Beast: The Enchanted Christmas then it is explained about the Beasts age. I believe it is when he receives Belle's story that he remembers the last time he received a book for Christmas. In the memory he is about 11 or 12. It was also that Christmas that the Enchantress showed up.

He already looks 21 because he is 21. The characters in the enchanted castle have essentially been frozen in time, until the spell is broken. I would imagine that Chip is supposed to be 8 or 9 years old, which would have made him not even born when the spell was cast in the first place.

Good point, but Disney never has been accurate with ages. In reality Pocahontas was only 12 when John Smith (40) landed in the new world.

"JoenGill" is only part right, they forgot that the rose as already begone to wilt, stating they are in the final year of the curse. which if "JoenGill" was right they would have been cursed for 21 years already, but then the song stated 10 years. So there is a mess up in the age of the prince visually speaking.

Could it be that maybe the beast had been ALMOST eleven when the spell was cast, and Lumiere was saying ABOUT how many years that he had been rusting?

For over analyzing adults yes there is a slip up. But in fact there is't. In the beginning of the story the Narrator states that the Rose will bloom until the Beast's 21st year (meaning he is cursed to be the beast for 21 years at the end of which if he doesn't find love they will all be cursed forever). When Lumiere (the candlestick) sings about rusting for 10 years in the song "be our guest", he is only indicating just that, for the last 10 yrs they have been rusting. Not that they have been cursed for 10yrs. It is possible they were relatively new and not rusting for the first 11 yrs. Therefore no slip up at all ;-) Cursed for 21 and rusting for the last 10.
