In a sword fighting/action sequence shot on the beach, Sinbad and Young Timur ('Sean Michael') are battling one another. At one point, Sinbad punches Timur in the face and he falls down. When this was actually filmed, Timur slipped in the sand and Sinbad actually punched him for real. It was an accident but they kept the take because it looked so real.
Oris Erhuero's character, Rongar, was in the early scripts going to be a guest star for the two part pilot. However, he so impressed the creator and directors that they added his character to the main cast.
