Added DiffLines:

* DuelingWorks: With Disney's ''Disney/TheLionKing'' in that both films are animated musicals about an exile living in banishment from a kingdom. Needless to say, ''The Lion King'' easily defeated ''A Troll in Central Park'' in 1994, seeing as how the former became the highest-grossing traditionally animated movie, while the latter became the biggest animated BoxOfficeBomb until Delgo in 2008.

-->As it is never a good thing that a child is born prematurely, so it is with producing a film. Development of a script is like the development of a child in the womb; It takes time and must be done right. Building the movie, A Troll In Central Park, taught us this lesson, but indeed, the hard way.I tell you all this in the hope that you might benefit from our foolish mistakes. Scrutinizing your own work is so important, but lets face it, we all are afraid of not measuring up, so we stubbornly cling to our own opinions, shutting out all others. Stanley could have been a richer character with more levels to his personality. Maybe he could have had a dark side, a troll side that he struggled with.

** Buddy Hackett was initially the voice for Stanley, but Bluth ended up replacing him with Dom Deluise because he was easier to work with (for example, Hackett's contracts demanded a limited number of takes per line, while Dom was more than willing to do muliple takes of his lines).
