Actor Allusion: Cloris Leachman voices Gnorga, the Queen of the Trolls in this film, and she had previously played a role as Cerena, Queen of the Trolls in the Hanna-Barbera Christmas special "The Little Troll Prince".
Old Shame: Gary Goldman stated that he and Don Bluth were not impressed with doing this film.
Screwed by the Studio: According to the IMDB trivia. Gary Goldman stated that the reason the movie did so poorly at the box office was the fact that it was released without any promotion whatsoever, and what release it did have was limited. Some say that's giving the movie too much credit.
What Could Have Been: Bluth has said that, had they not rushed their production, he would have wanted Stanley to be a much darker character with more abundant flaws.
