Independent film maker Paul Chart was originally signed to write and direct the picture and penned the original script. Chart left the project after a decision was made to shoot the film in 3-D, uncomfortable with the possibility it would become more 'theme park ride' than the epic action-adventure film he envisioned. The Jules Verne novel was apparently one of his favorite pieces of literature. Chart was ultimately replaced with effects specialist Eric Brevig and the script was heavily retooled to emphasize the new 3-D format.
(at around 2 mins) When Professor Alan Kitzens is measuring up Trevor's lab with the view to closing it down, Trevor folds his arms after the two shake hands. The scene then cuts to a view of Alan as he walks towards the door, where you see Trevor in the left of the shot folding his arms again.
At the end of the movie, the bird flies out of the picture and creates a bright flash. The end credits begin with a couple of the bird's feathers drifting down.
