In the edited-for-television version, two scenes are completely removed - The scene where Galen discovers Valerian to be female (by swimming with her) and the scene where Galen causes an avalanche over the entrance to the dragon's cave.
UK cinema and video versions were cut by the BBFC for an 'A' (PG) certificate to edit shots of the baby dragons chewing the Princess's feet and the decapitation of a baby dragon. The 2004 DVD features the same cut print.
CBS edited 12 minutes from this film for its 1986 network television premiere.
The out-of-print NTSC laserdisc is the only uncut version of the film and is a valuable collector's item.
The version streaming on DisneyLife in the UK is uncut and shows the baby dragons eating the princess, including ripping off her foot, and a baby dragon being decapitated.
