Filming was shut down in 1974, when the production ran out of money. Joseph Shaftel was able to raise money via a Jersey financier in 1976, and filming in Pinewood and the animation studio were able to commence again. See more »
At the beginning of the film, Bristol is shown as a coastal city. While the city does have docks and a harbor (it's situated on the River Avon), it's a good 30 minutes drive to the coast. See more »
I have to disagree with the only comment listed. This movie is not the best adaptation of the novel by any means though it is significant in that it was one of the early movies to use animation to the effect seen in this move; that is, mixing real life actors with animated characters. It pulls this off spectacularly. The problem is more to do with the dialogue and pace which is, at times, tiring. I watched this as a child and always had a soft spot for it, as I now know other children to have the same. This isn't a horrible movie, it should certainly not be overlooked in my opinion. It certainly should be bought at a car-boot sale though!
