In an alternate introduction scene for Teela, Teela is actually held captive in the dungeons of Snake Mountain, but she escapes and helps several imprisoned resistance fighters outside. This scene was not filmed, but was used in novelizations and was mentioned in the official movie and poster magazine. See more »
The keyboard that Kevin got from the music store seems to play back to front, with the high notes to the left.
The keyboard is seen as it would appear from Teela's point of view, therefore the high to low range of the notes is still correct. See more »

After the closing credits have ended, Skeletor's head, sans cowl, pops up from the waters of the pit he was thrown in, and says "I'll be back!". See more »
I can't believe how many positive comments there are for this movie!! This movie may have single-handedly ruined my childhood. Okay, exaggeration, but come on, the plot, script, and acting are nowhere near the level of a decent, "real" movie. It makes "Batman and Robin" look good!!
The comparison to "Beastmaster 2" in the sarcastic comment below is accurate. It's just as bad in terms of plot/acting/script, and it actually makes the same mistake: setting most of the action on Earth rather than in the fantasy atmosphere of the original. By this one action, they take everything that made the cartoon exciting to kids and flush it down the toilet.
A real stinker!!
