Differences From Redwall
- The solitary Beaver, and the sequence where he constructs a crossbow with Constance, does not appear.
- The epilogue as written by John Churchmouse that tells of Mattimeo's birth and the casting of the Matthias and Methuselah Bells is not addressed. The story concludes with Abbot Mortimer's death.
- In Redwall.org's Ask Brian, Volume 4, a reader asked if Brian Jacques "ever thought of producing a Redwall comic book or graphic novel?" The response was "No." Approximately five years later, this adaptation was published.
