Edit
Trivia The scene with the weaver colony catching fire was staged for storytelling purposes. The filmmakers found a colony that had apparently been abandoned for a very long time and set it alight. The dewdrop was staged in a small frame, and footage of the birds was spliced in. See more »
Goofs No actual documentation of the Honeyguide bird leading honey badgers to bee hives is known to exist, although they do this with humans. The "story" in the film is done with editing and a model bird simply being dangled in front of the badger. See more »
