The Gelfling puppets have three fingers and one thumb on each hand. When Kira and Jen make their way into the castle via a mouth-like entrance, Kira's right hand has five fingers in the long shot (actors, not puppets, were used for long shots of the Gelflings).
The opening credits show only the credits for the crew.
The 5.1 audio track created for the 25th Anniversary DVD and subsequent Blu-ray contains some additional dialogue and other audio differences not present in any previous video version, nor in theatrical prints.
