Red Sonja: Frequently Asked Questions
Isn’t Kalidor just Conan? Why didn’t they call him Conan anyway?
By the time Red Sonja was made into a film, the character trademark was owned by a new company, Red Sonja LLC. The film was made by a different company from the folk who did Conan the Barbarian. Therefore, the Conan name couldn’t be used.
Does Sonja really call Queen Gedren a man?
Nope, she says “You are mad.” Chalk it up to Bridgette Nielson’s accent.
