Corrected entry: This movie inspired and sparked the birth of the famous and popular Nintendo adventure game series 'Legend of Zelda'.

Correction: This is just wrong. Shigeru Miyamoto is heavily credited with creating The Legend of Zelda story. Check his bio here: http://www.miyamotoshrine.com/theman/bio/index.shtml Nowhere does it mention this movie provided any inspiration for the game.

Corrected entry: There is one nag about one of the side characters: The goblin who later turns out to be a gnome seems to be a good friend or even relative of Snowball, but it is never explained how he ran off and got mixed up with the minions of Darkness in the first place.

Correction: Not explaining the history of a random minor character is hardly a mistake, it wasn't something that would have aided the story to be explained.

Revealing mistake: The two unicorns are a stallion and a mare in the movie. But both horses used were clearly stallions. This can be seen quite well when the "mare" is jumping around after she comes upon the stallion with his horn removed; a full shot of the male horse anatomy.

Trivia: Studio executives disapproved of David Bennent's German accent, saying 'Gump sounds like a Nazi'. Alice Playten (who also did Blix) dubbed over the lines. Ridley Scott says he tried to locate David Bennent's original dialogue to include it in the Director's Cut, but it could not be found.

Answer: Well, I finally found a site that has the lyrics. So I'm going to answer my own question, if anyone else wants to know. http://www.figmentfly.com/legend/question27.html has the words.
