Milestones

  • First feature-length film directed and (co-)written by Hayao Miyazaki.

Trivia

  • In 1983, the LaserDisc acrade game "Cliff Hanger" was released using an extensive amount of clips from the film as well as "Secret of Mamo" while removing all references to Lupin III. The game was shoddily redubbed to make it more interactive, even though some of the Japanese dialogue was kept intact.
  • Haruya Yamazaki wrote the original draft to the story, but then Miyazaki rewrote the screenplay changing the story to what is seen in the final film. While none of his material was used in the film, Yamazaki still received screen credit.
