Trivia

Most of the shooting was done in Victoria, Australia. As it wasn't the correct season in Melbourne during the county fair scenes, the trees surrounding the location were spray painted with non-toxic orange and yellow paint to make it seem as though it was autumn. And, rather than have extras getting motion sickness on the rides, the art department sculpted bodies out of polystyrene and took casts of their own faces that were put onto the dummies. These dummies were painted and dressed up and strapped into rides; going round and around for about a week - and no motion sickness. Each of their faces (about 5 of them) were on all of the 60 or so dummies. See more »

Goofs

When Gussy first introduces herself to Wilbur, she has a light yellow spot on the tip of her beak. In the next shot, Golly has the spot on his beak. See more »

Nice adaptation, perhaps a little trigger happy on the CGI
16 December 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

With this movie made in part in my hometown (Williamstown) I dragged the kids along to check it out.

Being well familiar with the story, I expected this to be pretty light hearted fair, but the wife still managed to turn into a blubbing mess at the end.

The movie had an uneasy feel about the setting; didn't feel current or old for that matter, so perhaps will age OK.

The CGI was pretty amazing. I'd hate to imagine what someone from a time capsule or straight out of jail would imagine has happened in our world since they left. Talking animals and spiders, so realistic the kids don't even blink twice.

Good for young kids (mine are 4 and 2), and not monotonously boring like many of the other CGI laden kids movies out there.
