- John Landis was the original director of the project. In his version, the film would have ended with the heroine giving a speech in Washington D.C. when she was less than a foot tall.
Tests exist of Lily Tomlin in various scenes that were shot for the film in the 3D format, which was having a resurgence of interest in the US at the time. It was produced and released in 2D, however.
