Erik the Viking and his men travel across the sea to find Valhalla to ask the gods to end the Age of Ragnarok.
According to Michael Palin's diaries, Terry Jones approached Nicolas Cage for the role of Erik.
I am the air! I am the wind!
As the ship is flung a great distance by the dragon, some of the Vikings fall out. This wouldn't happen, since they're following the same parabolic trajectory as the ship.
This film is not based on the children's book "The Saga Of Erik The Viking" by Terry Jones (Although he hopes it will help the sales)
The UK cinema version was cut by 37 secs for a 12 certificate with edits to the opening rape of Helga. Video releases were upgraded to a 15 but featured a shorter print: 7 minutes were cut to tighten the movie. The current DVD (known as the "Director's Son's Cut") features both the video version and an even shorter (75 minute) print.
