Bindi Irwin previously starred in the fourth Free Willy installment, "Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove" in which she rides an orca whale. In this film, Irwin rides an orca once again in the beginning credits. See more »
At the 10:09 mark in the movie it shows a flock of wild Scarlet Macaws (Ara macao) it is indigenous to South American rainforests from Southern Mexico to Brazil in the humid evergreen forests, Since this movie is said to take place around Australia this is an incorrect placement of the Ara Macao.

Refreshing to see Steve Irwin's daughter, Bindi, step up her film acting . . .
I knew this sequel was made for a TV/DVD release only and not for a theatrical release so, they used affordable unknown actors. But, Bindi Irwin is not an unknown, of course.
Steve Erwin was not quite the film actor that his daughter has turned out to be. She was a good child actress in in the Free Willy: Escape from Pirate's Cove movie. But, in Return to Nim's Island, Bindi is a very capable adolescent actress with real theatrical film talent.
Her Mom was very natural in front of a TV camera and Steve's acting style was mainly ramping up his enthusiasm and volume when doing Animal Planet. Maybe Bindi has the best of both parents in her acting ability.
I knew this was not a real sequel, not bringing back any of the original Nim's Island actors but, this was a fresh sassy Australian produced alternative sequel to Nim's Island. Well done!
