Goofs At around 00:04:56 in the dubbed English version Professor Kristoff uses different measurement units in three consecutive sentences: "Because the distance between the Earth's crust and it's core is over 6500 KILOMETRES. And no man has ever descended to a depth of more than 3 MILES. So it's obvious we'll never have a glimmer of true knowledge until we are able to reach a depth of at least a 100 LEAGUES." See more »
