  • Whoopi Goldberg was given the role of Guinan after being a fan of the original series and expressing interesting in having a recurring role in the new series
    Ghost [1990]
  • The scene where Whoopi Goldberg meets two nuns is very prophetic. A couple of years after Ghost, Goldberg played a nun in Sister Act. One year later, she repeated the role in Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit.
    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles [2014]
  • Whoopi Goldberg stated that this movie has been a lifelong goal of hers: "My daughter was a huge fan of the original TMNT cartoon so when the original movie was announced she wanted me to be in it and so I asked around but it never happened, same with the other films they made, so when I heard this new project get announced I asked around again and to my surprise I got the part!"
    The Pagemaster [1994]
  • This is one of two animated films Whoopi Goldberg voiced in 1994. The other is The Lion King.
  • Whoopi Goldberg and Patrick Stewart recorded their dialogue together.
  • This movie stars four regular cast members from various Star Trek television series: Patrick Stewart; Leonard Nimoy (Dr. Jekyll has Vulcan shaped ears); Whoopi Goldberg and Robert Picardo. As well as this movie featuring four Star Trek regulars, it also starred two actors who have Star Trek connections: Christopher Lloyd, who played Klingon Commander Kruge in Star Trek III: The Search for Spock, and Ed Begley Jr., who played Henry Starling in two episodes of [Star Trek: Voyager] namely {Future's End: Parts 1 and 2}.
  • Whoopi Goldberg, who provided her voice for the film, was at one point in a relationship with actor Ted Danson. Macaulay Culkin starred with Danson in Getting Even With Dad in the same year.
    The Lion King [1994]
  • Nathan Lane and Ernie Sabella were originally cast as the hyenas Banzai and Shenzi (played by Whoopi Goldberg and Cheech Marin in the final film). The crew loved their performance and thought the duo would be even better as Timon and Pumbaa.
  • The original intention for 2 of the hyenas was to reunite Cheech & Chong, but while Cheech Marin accepted to play Banzai, Tommy Chong was unavailable. Thus his role was changed into a female hyena, Shenzi, voiced by Whoopi Goldberg. Chong alone would later have a role in a Disney Animated Feature Film 22 years later, being Zootopia.
