Trivia

  • Nellie, Orinoco and Mushu were originally going to be major characters and scenes were filmed with them in, but they were reduced to cameo for no reason. They are still present in two scenes however (Nellie is with Orinoco and Mr Bean at Antic base were Fegelein discusses about his enemy while Mushu is seen with Blue Yoshi as they talk much about Jeeves), though they are still major characters in the extended version (which reinstates the deleted scenes). To make things worse, Jim Crow's brothers were meant to show up in the non-extended version, but somehow did not make it into the final cut, but do show up in the extended version, But again to make things even worse, Mordecai was also intended to show up in both versions, but did not make the final cut. He would then appear in its sequels, starting with Clash of the Links II: Justice To Stop the Daleks, and acknowledges why he did not appear in its first film.
  • This film marks various actors and actresses who originally portrayed and voiced the characters return to reprise their roles (e.g Sean Bean returning to portray Sharpe and Julie Andrews returning to portray Mary Poppins), while characters who had deceased actors and actresses who voiced and portrayed them were replaced with sound-likes and look-alikes which includes Jim Crow (who was originally voiced by Cliff Edwards) now being voiced by British comedy actor Hugh Laurie (who does a amazing impersonation of Cliff Edwards's Jim Crow) and Mr. Stork (who was originally voiced by Sterling Holloway) is now voiced by Jim Cummings, and it also makes Mr Stork a major character. To make this more extreme, animated Cruella is now voiced by Glen Close. Luckily, Pterano is still voiced by Michael York, while the pre-release version had Rowan Atkinson as Pterano.
  • This film had returning songs and themes from older films and TV series (such as A Spoonful of Sugar and Chim Chim Chree from Mary Poppins).
  • Madame Upanova, Nintendo Link, Ugly Duckling and Mother Swan now speaks for the 1st time.
  • This film was a extremely amazing success at box office, that it was given a line of action figures through Big Chief Studios (the designers to the live-action characters in action figure forms) and Pop Culture Shock (the designers to the animated characters in action figure form) in both 3.75 inch and 12 inch, novels and comics, and was given DVD spin-offs and theatrical sequels.
  • Sean Bean surprisingly appears as himself, Alec Trevelyan, Richard Sharpe and Boromir, to an extent Stephen Fry shows up as himself, Jeeves and the Melchetts, and Hugh Laurie appears as himself, Jim Crow, the Prince Regent, David Nix, Bertie Wooster and the members of the George family.
  • Kevin Michael Richardson was originally going to return to voice Jim Crow again, but Hugh Laurie somehow ended up replacing him which was caused by Laurie's thoughts about doing Jim Crow in order to make Disney proud, however, a version of this film and its sequels were made with Kevin Michael Richardson reprising his role as Jim Crow.
  • When compared to Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Clash of the Links is a more kid-friendly film (even though it included characters from PG, 12 and 15 rated series such as Poirot, Sharpe, The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit).
  • For the 1st few bits of scenes with The Brigadier, he is portrayed by Nicholas Courtney for the 2010 to circa 2011 parts, but in later scenes, he is a Cyberman portrayed by Jeremiah Krage who turns up to met the Fifth Doctor and then fight in battle and then flies off for new adventures.
  • This was the 1st film since Dumbo to feature Jim Crow, Jim Crow's brothers and Mr Stork.
  • While Lizard Man from the Filmation take of He-Man appears as a major character in this film, while reprised by Lou Scheimer, some of his dialogue had to be done by Stephen Fry due to the apparent passing of Scheimer in 2013, considering its long development from 2009 to January 2015. As a result, Stephen Fry would permanently voice Lizard Man for its sequels. On the other hand, George DiCenzo managed to complete all of his lines for his characters during the films early development from January 2009 to June 2010 before his apparent passing in August 2010. So this film is dedicated to both Lou Scheimer and George DiCenzo. For its sequels, his characters, Sea Hawk and Captain Hook became voiced by Ian McShane.
  • This film was known to have marked the return of both He-Man, She-Ra, Lizard Man, Imp and Sea Hawk from both the Filmation version of He-Man and The Masters of The Universe and She-Ra: Princess of Power.
