The emu, Kimi's proclaimed favorite bird, and depicted on the emblem of Dylan's school uniform, is Australia's official national bird. Emus are flightless, as Kimi pointed out in her proclamation, which can be seen as necessary to clarify, for many, Dylan's later rhetorical question, "Do emus dream of flying?" It's all a clever tie-in with the paper plane theme.

For interested Perth residents: Did you know that the Japanese scenes where they are touring a pond and watching the Japanese make Japanese paper and screen printing, and also there is a scene where the Japanese martial artists are partaking in Kendo (which is the national sport of Japan), well these scenes were actually filmed in Perth at Willow Pond Reception Centre located in Canning Vale. The very special effect (otherwise known as CGI) is quite realistic as the city skyline in the backdrop of the gardens at Willow Pond Reception Centre and gardens. Of special mention also is that the martial artists who appear in the Kendo scene were actual students of the Budokan Martial Arts Academy located on the grounds of Willow Pond Reception Centre.
