Trivia
Due to studio interference, the film saw several script changes during filming, and a radical re-edit during post-production. The part of Yorick van Wageningen, who originally had a significant supporting role as Kapitan, was cut back to a silent cameo due to these decisions.

According to costume designer Penny Rose, everyone had a customized costume in keeping with their background: "We based it on the culture and what the shapes should be - everyone's in a kimono - but we've thrown a kind of fashion twist at it and we've made it full of colour."

Goofs

Q
What are the differences between the International Theatrical Version and the Japanese Version?
A
In Japan a slightly different version of this movie was released that features approximately two and a half minutes of prolonged footage, mostly dealing with cultural themes and nothing substantial. A detailed comparison between both versions with pictures can be found here.
