* DawsonCasting: The 13-year-old Jonatan Lionheart is played by Staffan Götestam, who was 25 during the production. However, this might be a [[SubvertedTrope subversion]] since the film makers were [[AvertedTrope averting]] the MostWritersAreAdults trope.
** Most likely Jonatan is supposed to be only three or four years older in the movie than he is in the book. Götestam was still a lot older than his character, but his performance is so good that you really don't mind.
* WordOfGod: Lindgren wrote a newspaper article where she confirmed that Nangilima was indeed the life after Nangijala.
