In the film's original script, Kodi does not help rescue Balto. Phil Weinstein pitched the idea of Steele being the one who volunteers to go help Balto on the rescue since, in the original draft, Kodi wouldn't go. Phil thought it would be interesting for Balto and Steele to be out alone together. The E.D.A.S. dog alert sequence was added, and the flashbacks to Kodi as a puppy were added in Jenna's song "You Don't Have to Be a Hero". The opening song visuals originally told more of the story of Kodi, getting promoted from the dog in the back to the front. Also, the opening scene began with a postman addressing a letter, we follow the letter as it gets sorted, then bagged in a sack, then placed on a sled to get delivered. There are some elements of this in the final version. The close-up of the letter stamped "AIR MAIL" at the end of the movie was just a pay-off for what was set up in the beginning. The ice bridge sequence was also added.

Sean Astin approached the production team to voice Kodi. Rumor has it he did this the day after he attended the Academy Awards, where his previous film, _The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King (2003)_, won 11 Academy Awards.
