Not really many musical numbers here but we just had to include the idiotic "combat rock" generic "hard rock" song.


Joust Do It.

  1. Kate Winslet was reportedly told to lose weight for her role, and became sick as a result.

  2. Trimark released a sequel, A Kid in Aladdin's Palace (1997), but without Disney's involvement.

  3. This is the second film where Thomas Ian Nicholas plays a Little League baseball player. He previously played one in Rookie of the Year (1993).

  4. When Calvin makes Big Macs for Princess Katie he includes tomatoes (or, "poisonous love apples") which are not a topping on the iconic McDonalds sandwich.

  5. Disney previously made The Unidentified Flying Oddball, based on the same novel and directed by Russ Mayberry in 1979.
