Film Examples

  • California Doubling: Early medieval England is actually Slovakia.
  • Celebrity Voice Actor: The brazilian dub has Miguel Falabella as Draco.
  • Dawson Casting: In the second film. Lian's age isn't ever said, but she appears to be a teenager (the other main characters, Geoff and Mansel, are meant to be about 16), and she is referred to as a "girl" instead of a woman. Whatever her age, it's certainly younger than actress Rona Figueroa's 28 at the time of filming.
  • Follow the Leader: Was a part of a wave of Middle Ages themed adventure films that followed up the success of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, thought it has a more overt fantastical nature to it.
  • Full Circle Portraying: Patrick Stewart originally provided the voice for Draco in the test footage for the first film, and returned to voice Drago in the second prequel.
  • Ooh, Me Accent's Slipping: Dennis Quaid's accent varies between regular American and something approaching Irish with mild undertones of Pirate. All the other American actors don't try.
  • The Other Darrin: Drago is played by Ben Kingsley in the third film and by Patrick Stewart in the fourth.
  • Sequel Gap: The third movie is released 15 years after the second one.
  • What Could Have Been: According to the movie's original screenplay, which was later adapted into a novelization, the film was written to be a serious, transcendent drama and epic fantasy with compelling imagery and characters, and moments of levity sprinkled throughout. Liam Neeson would have been Bowen and the effects for Draco would have been done by Jim Henson. See here for more.

Music Examples

  • Covered Up: A re-release of Throne of the Alliance has a cover of Grave Digger's "Rebellion (The Clans Are Marching)".
  • No Export for You: Their albums are only released within the Baltic States.
