Trivia

Iruma River Bridge
  • The title, Paradise Regained, is a reference to John Milton's Paradise Lost poem.
  • According to an interview with Handa Kento, Toei originally planned to give Inui Takumi a tragic end. However, Handa and Haga intervened and were able to convince the producers to change that ending.[1]
  • The kuina is an Asian bird known as the brown-cheeked rail in English.
  • Kitazaki gains a given name for the first time, Nozomu. Previously, he was just known by his family name.
  • The ramen sign is painted over the laundromat sign.
  • Mari sits at a park with Kusaka looking at a salon, it was Mari's dream to be a beautician in the TV series.
  • According to the profile that Rena read, Mari's birthday is November 27, 1987, making her 36 in this movie.
  • On the day Takumi left Mari, he ended up at Iruma River Bridge where Smart Brain eventually found him and captured him.
  • Muez's name is a combination mutsu/six, the Greek letter Mu, and the z from Faiz.
  • Muez's transformation code is 666. Her name is also a pun on the 9 Muses from Greek myth, in a similar way Orphenoch gets their name from Orpheus, the man who tried to lead his wife out of the land of the dead.
  • During the Smart Lady commercial, the BGM version of the song I am Smart Lady is playing in the background.
  • Takumi transforms into the old model Faiz in the final battle. However, for some reason the Faiz Accel Watch is not seen on his arm.
  • When Rena tells Takumi that the moon is pretty, this is a poetic way for Japanese to say "I love you" [1]

Actor Trivia

  • Mizorogi Ken retired from acting. Rather than having him return as Keitarou, the character Kikuchi Joutarou was created instead and is the nephew of Keitarou.
  • Seiji the ramen shop customer is played by original Faiz stunt actor, Takaiwa Seiji. He even gets splashed on his hand, so he does Faiz's hand flick motion.
  • Tom Constantine played Neon's bodyguard on Geats. He had a Rider belt in that series, but we never see him transform until now.
  • Smart Lady was originally played by Kurihara Hitomi, but the actress has already retired from acting. This new Smart Lady is played by Shindo Amane, who was born the same year as the 555 TV series ended, making her younger than the 20 year anniversary this movie is celebrating.
