Other mistake: In Sarah's room, after the close-ups of Lancelot's empty shelf space and of Sarah beginning to say, "Someone..." as she finishes, "..has been in my room again," in this wide shot, while still on her bed until she leaves her room, there is a mark across Sarah's forehead that extends to the left side her eye. It isn't in the previous or following shots. (00:06:40)

Other mistake: When Sarah is in the room with the old hag who lives at the rubbish dump, the old hag asks, "What's the matter, dearie? Don't you like your toys?" Connelly is mouthing the hag's lines, presumably as a prompt to recall her own lines. (01:10:45)

Other mistake: As the cannon the Goblin army brings rolls to a stop, the smoke jet used to simulate shots is visible.

Other mistake: As Sarah looks at the opening that she can't readily see, the vine on the right side goes from sharp to blurry at the top of it.

Other mistake: When Sarah is at the end doing her speech with David Bowie in that upside down world and is meant to recite the speech word for word, she forgets the line "To take back the child that you have stolen" Instead she skips right over the line and says, " I have fought my way here to the castle beyond the goblin city - - missed line - - for my will is as strong as yours...etc. Etc."

Visible crew/equipment: After Sarah meets Sir Didymus at the Bog of Eternal Stench, Sir Didymus climbs on Ludo's back. While he is up there, the bottom portion of Didymus' right hand 'puppet control rod' is seen being controlled on Ludo's right side. The top portion of his right hand control rod is seen many times throughout his shots. His left hand control rod is concealed as his staff. (00:58:20)

Trivia: In the scene where you get a look at Sarah's bedroom, if you look closely you'll see that many of the objects in her room resemble people or obstacles she meets in the Labyrinth. For example the book ends holding up her books look like Hoggle, she has a toy maze (labyrinth) and the doll in the music box is dressed in the same dress she wears at the ball. The music box also plays the tune of the song that Jareth sings to her at the ball.
