** Joanna Pacitti was the highly-hyped newcomer cast for the 1997 revival, but was fired during rehearsals. (This became fodder for a ''Series/SaturdayNightLive'' bit via a "Weekend Update" segment.)

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: And what ''was''. Many studios bid for the movie rights to the stage musical. Hanna-Barbera even tried to get the rights with the intention of turning it into an animated TV special. When Columbia Pictures won out (and paid a record amount for movie rights to ''any'' property in the process), Paramount Pictures decided to put their own comic strip-based musical into production to FollowTheLeader -- the result was ''Film/{{Popeye}}''.

[[AC:1982 Film]]
* FakeNationality: Trinidadian actor/choreographer Geoffrey Holder played Warbucks' Indian bodyguard [[FamousNamedForeigner Punjab]].
* HeyItsThatGuy: Hoo boy, where to start?
** First of all, the Hudson Street Orphanage is run by none other than [[Series/TheCarolBurnettShow Eunice]] [[MamasFamily Higgins]], or [[OnceUponAMattress Princess Winnifred]], or for younger musical fans, [[Series/{{Glee}} Doris Sylvester]].
** Not only that, but her brother's anything but [[TheRockyHorrorPictureShow a sweet transvestite]].
*** ''And'' he's dating [[IntoTheWoods the Witch]]!
** Annie is adopted by [[Literature/TheHistoryOfTomJonesAFoundling Tom Jones]] ([[NamesTheSame no, not that]] Music/TomJones).
** [[ScaryBlackMan Punjab]] is none other than [[Film/LiveAndLetDie Baron Samedi]]. So ''that's'' where he went!
** [[Series/GilmoreGirls Lorelai Gilmore's dad]] is President of the United States.
** ''[[HollywoodSquares Peter Marshall]]''? When the hell did ''you'' get into radio?
* SerendipityWritesThePlot: The temporal setting was moved from Christmas time to shortly before the Fourth of July because the filming was scheduled for the summer.
* VindicatedByCable: Or, more accurately, Vindicated by VHS.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: The movie was originally planned to be the start of a series. The reason Aileen Quinn never had a successful child-acting career was because she spent years contracted to appear in ''Annie'' sequels which never happened. After thirteen years of DevelopmentHell, the made-for-television movie ''Film/AnnieARoyalAdventure'' emerged.

[[AC:Annie: A Royal Adventure!]]
* HeyItsThatGuy: A nice sci-fi crossover with Edith Keeler from ''Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries'' and Emperor Palpatine from ''Franchise/StarWars''. Oh, and Edith is the one who's evil.
** And Annie is [[WesternAnimation/{{Recess}} Gretchen Grundler]]
* TheOtherDarrin: Everyone, naturally. It's supposed to be a sequel to the 1982 film, but none of the original cast returned. (Of course, the original kids would be too old, but none of the original adults returned either.)
* SequelGap: Came thirteen years after the 1982 film.
