The film was the last of several fantasy movies Connor and Dark made together including The Land That Time Forgot, At the Earth's Core and Warlords of Atlantis. It was far less successful at the box office though.
In April 1978 EMI Films announced they would make the film as part of a series of films they wanted to produce with the newly-formed Orion Pictures. Others included Chinese Bandit and Cutter and Bone. It did end up being one of Orion's first films, along with A Little Romance, Over the Edge, Promises in the Dark, Heart Beat, The Wanderers and 10.
