** The deleted scenes from the Blu-Ray reveal that Wiggins was originally a lot more villainous, a lot less ditzy and eons more arrogant than the character we see today. He had a very condescending attitude toward the other settlers and displayed the personality of [[PsychopathicManchild an overexcited, childish rich boy]], dressing in full armor and grabbing guns from everywhere over the mere ''excitement'' of getting to shoot Indians.

* MagnumOpusDissonance: The studio had high hopes for the film, hoping it would gain an Oscar nomination as ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'' had. This and ''Disney/TheLionKing'' were in production at the same time, and many animators opted to work on this as they and studio chief Jeffrey Katzenberg saw it as the more prestigious project of the two (Ironically, Katzenberg was one of the creative leads on ''Lion King''). The latter became an insane success. And while this was a significant hit, it received LoveItOrHateIt reactions (Katzenberg was spared some of this backlash due to getting the boot from Disney after ''Lion King'' hit theaters the year prior).

** Lyricist Howard Ashman, who had worked on previous Disney animated classics such as ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' and ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', was supposed to write the songs for this film as well but died of AIDS prior to completing work on ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', and thus Creator/StephenSchwartz had to fill in for him.
