Added DiffLines:

* ChannelHop:
** ''Innocence'' had no less than three distributors. The film in sub-only format was first acquired by Dreamworks, then later acquired by Paramount following the former's purchase of the latter. Then it was later re-released in a dubbed version by Bandai, that was recently re-released by Funimation.
** Weirdly, both of the anime films had different co-producers from Hollywood. The first film was co-produced by Creator/PolyGramFilmedEntertainment through Creator/MangaEntertainment, which retained its share of the rights as it was acquired first by Palm Pictures and then by Anchor Bay Entertainment. ''Innocence'', on the other hand, was co-produced by the name you'd least expect to be associated with violent, artsy mecha product, and indeed had no share in its distribution: Creator/WaltDisneyPictures.
* CreatorsFavorite: In the Latin American Spanish dub, Motoko Kusanagi is this for her voice actress, Gabriela Willert, who not only voiced her in the original movie, she also voiced her in the dub of ''Innocence'', despite that movie was dubbed in Cuernavaca, while the original movie was dubbed in Mexico City. And she is working in the dub of the [[Anime/GhostInTheShellStandAloneComplex TV series]] as well, despite it wasn't originally dubbed at first.
* TheOtherDarrin:
** In 2002, Mimi J. Woods, the original English Motoko, moved away from Los Angeles, effectively retiring from acting altogether, so Creator/MaryElizabethMcGlynn replaced her in ''Innocence'' and most of everything else in the ''[=GITS=]'' animated franchise. Many consider Mary's take to be the one they prefer on the English side of things, feeling that Mimi's was too monotone/flat by comparison.
** There's also Creator/CrispinFreeman replacing Christopher Carroll (who used the pseudonym "Christopher Joyce") as Togusa in ''Innocence'' and all other bits of L.A.-dubbed ''[=GITS=]'' media. In a similar vein, Michael [=McCarty=] replaced Michael Sorich as Ishikawa.[[note]]Sorich had previously been replaced in the role in the [=PS1=] game as noted above.[[/note]]
** For the [[GeorgeLucasAlteredVersion 2.0 version]], some roles were recast with more current actors (at the time) from ''[=SAC=]''. The Puppet Master's original actor, Creator/IemasaKayumi, was replaced by Prime Minister Kayabuki's actress, Creator/YoshikoSakakibara. There's also the Section 9 operators who were voiced by Atsuko Hayashida in the '95 cut but were redubbed by the ''[=SAC=]'' actress Eri Ono for 2.0.
