Trivia

Much of the film was animated with a 1.85:1 frame in mind, but the 2-perf single-strip 3D projection system required a 2.35:1 ratio. As a result, many shots appear framed unusually tight, and in some cases characters' heads are partially cut off. See more »

Quotes

Robot Guard: [after shooting at the Starchaser] That was just a warning shot. Reduce speed and prepare to be boarded.
Dagg: [to Arthur] Don't bother with the shields. That bot's about to get a laser-enema.

lucas would have been proud...
27 March 2000 | by (northern ireland) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this film years ago when i was younger and definitely have a memory of renting it out more than once from the video shop. For the past couple of years i've been searching around second hand video shops (in vain none the less)trying to find a copy. Looking back on it the comparisons between it and star wars are incredible; a diamond smuggler with an amazing ship (Han Solo perhaps), a young boy escaping from a very crap life to fight an evil bad guy with the use of his newly found sword (Luke and his light saber?). However despite this, it really was an enjoyable film and i'll spend another 4 years looking for it.
