* Why did they go to a comic book world? There's the possibility it's because that's the fairy land the animals retreated to. Another possibility is ''The Isle of Naboomban doesn't exist.'' While the magic in the book is real, the actual place may have long since fallen to ruin or been destroyed. Also, our heroes don't know anything about it save what was made from a comic book so the only place the magic can visualize is from said comic book.

** Ms.Price appears to have a knack for intuitive casting. Mr.Brown admits that he reworked the spells in the book he found, there by negating their written power, but since Ms.Price seems to cast more by emotion backed up by incantation, for her it's not the words, but the feeling behind the casting that matters. so her doing projections seems completely within her wheel house.

* OK, they have a lion king ([[Disney/TheLionKing no comment from the peanut gallery]]) temporarily changed into a rabbit, with no Star Of Astoroth on his neck to justify his authority. Do the Naboombans revolt?! What happens to the king?! Maybe hopefully the villagers don't see him as a cute little rabbit and (at best) laugh him out of a job, if he doesn't get eaten first.

* Remember all those cute little animals on the Isle of Nabooombu, and their cute little soccer match with all kinds of animal slapstick? Now think back to the legend that explains the origin of these islanders, in which the animals betrayed and killed what was essentially their creator, only to establish a civilization of their own. The entire visit to the island gets decidedly more ominous and creepy.

* The filmmakers obviously didn't think through the fact that Miss Price's "missing page" is on the opposite side of the sheet from the one in her possession, so by all rights she should have it. It lets Angela Lansbury do a dramatic page-turn, but at what cost?

* Cosmic Creepers eagerly tried to attack Charlie when he was turned in to a rabbit, and yet when Emelius is transformed the cat doesn't try to make a meal out of him. Cosmic Creepers learned his lesson.

** Hopefully the spell ended when the humans returned to England, same as the AnimatedArmor collapsed when Miss Price got knocked out.

** He may not feel up to the task of just making up material to pad out the ending. Not everyone is good at concocting stories or magic words.

** Because Emelius is a con-man and a swindler. He doesn't think in terms of honesty and negotiations, he thinks in terms of sleight-of-hand and skulduggery.

to:

* Remember how the enchanted broom was out of control when Miss Price tried to fly it, and how the rabbit spell was short-lived, and moreover, failed to result in the right animal? That's probably because Emelius changed some of the magic words a little bit to fit his own style.
