According to animator Lauren Faust, Nancy Giles was originally cast as the speaking voice of Sawyer, and many scenes were animated to her performance. Jasmine Guy replaced Giles when the project was 90% complete. The original voice for the character was much deeper, resulting in a noticeable contrast between Sawyer's final speaking voice (Jasmine Guy) and singing voice (Natalie Cole). See more »
As Danny arrives in Hollywood at the beginning of the film, the Hollywood sign can be seen. The film is set in 1939 so the sign should still read Hollywoodland as it did until 1949. See more »

Having grown slightly weary of Disney's modern formula, I was pleasantly surprised to find an animated movie that didn't try to be something BIG. The formula was fresh and original, despite the fact that the premise is as old as time, and the songs were jazzy and finger snapping. All in all, this was a fun movie. Fun and high energy. There was also not one single weak character. No stupid sidekicks here. Everybody makes the experience enjoyable. And the humor is priceless. They also managed to make the story thoughtful and even touching while still keeping the movie light and fun. Great direction. Great music. Great animation. Overall, just a great movie. Surprising for a WB movie. This movie came out the same year as Disney's own Hercules, but this is many times better.
