Gnomeo & Juliet (2011) Poster

Trivia

The name of the pink lawn flamingo, Featherstone, is an homage to the creator of the original pink flamingo lawn ornament, Don Featherstone. All 'official' pink flamingos now carry Don Featherstone's signature on the bottom of the bird.
There are several references to William Shakespeare's other works: Hamlet:
  • The house numbers, 2B and Not 2B in the very beginning


  • The moving trucks, from the Rosencrantz and Guildenstern moving company


As You Like It:
  • The As U Like It moving company


The Tempest:
  • The Tempest Teapot company truck


A Midsummer Night's Dream:
  • The flower that Gnomeo and Juliet fight over is referred to as "Cupid's flower"


Macbeth:
  • Juliet says "out, out" to the big dog and the owner says "damn spot"


  • On a brick wall in an alleyway is painted 3x3 which is a reference to the witches ("by the power of three times three")


The Taming of the Shrew:
  • The glue that the Red Gnomes use to keep Juliet on her pedestal is called, "The Taming of the Glue"


The sign on the bus indicates that the movie takes place in Stratford-Upon-Avon, birthplace of William Shakespeare, who wrote Romeo & Juliet, which is what Gnomeo & Juliet is based upon.

When Paris is serenading Juliet, Nanette dreamily sees him as an Elton John-like character playing the piano complete with a glittery outfit and flamboyant glasses. This, of course, is an homage to Elton John, the Executive Producer.
