Trivia

The film was originally scheduled for a theatrical release for the 1997 holiday season, but Warner Brothers later pushed the release date to May 1998, to avoid competition with Alien: Resurrection (1997), Anastasia (1997), The Borrowers (1997), Die furchtlosen Vier (1997), Flubber (1997), Home Alone 3 (1997), Mousehunt (1997), Mr. Magoo (1997), Titanic (1997), and the re-release of The Little Mermaid (1989).

Bill Kroyer, the original Director of the film, intended to make a darker film, more faithful in tone to the original book. Following the phenomenal successes of the films of the Disney Renaissance, Warner Brothers, among many other film studios, moved into feature animation, hoping to replicate similar successes with their own animated films. At Warner Brothers' behest, the director's vision for the film was rejected, in favor of a more Disney animated musical film-style, and the film was put into production before the story was even finalized. The complex plot and dark nature of the novel, The King's Damousel, were replaced with several animation trademarks of the 1990s-era: musical numbers, a strong female heroine, a power hungry antagonist who wants to usurp the kingdom, a romantic subplot where the couple lives happily ever after, talking animal sidekicks, and family-friendly comedy gags.

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

When Kayley and Garret are knighted, she wears a completed version of the dress that her mother tried to get her to wear at the beginning of the movie.
An aspect of this movie, that makes it unique, is having a major character that is that one of the major characters in the story is not only blind, but even as the story unfolds, and he becomes one of the heroes of the story, he remains blind. They opted to not revert to what so many others have done, and have his sight restored through some sort of "magic" or convoluted storyline, that would automatically restore his sight, so that in the end, the two heroes ride off together, presumably in love with each other just as they were.
