- The Jupiter 1 (the booster stage for the Jupiter 2 craft) bears a strong resemblance to the craft in the original TV series.
Originally, all surviving cast members of the TV show were meant to have cameo appearances. Mark Goddard, the original Major Don West, plays the General. June Lockhart, the original Maureen Robinson, plays Will Robinson's principal. Marta Kristen and Angela Cartwright, the original Robinson girls, play reporters. Ironically, Bill Mumy and Jonathan Harris, the two actors most supportive of the idea of a new movie (as well as the two most popular characters on the show), did not appear in it. Mumy wanted to play the older Will Robinson but the director thought it would be too distracting from the plot to have the original Will play the older Will. Harris was to have played the man who hired, then betrayed, Dr. Smith. In an interview for "TV Guide" prior to the film's release, it was mentioned that Jonathan Harris bluntly stated, "I will have you know I have never done a walk-on or bit part in my life! And I do not intend to start." He announced that if he could not play his own role in the movie, he wanted nothing to do with it. He did return as Dr. Smith in a one-hour TV special Lost in Space Forever (1998) (TV).
Dick Tufeld reprises his role from the TV series as the voice of the Robot.
Both actresses that have appeared on the big and little screen as Penny Robinson have both also lent their talents to two separate versions of Babes in Toyland.
The television series "Lost in Space" (1965) was set in the future of 1997 - the year the film began production.
