In the audio commentary for the movie, the directors talk about how they initially envisioned the characters with the power to transform their hands into tools, so that they could interact with objects and each other, but also resemble their toy counterparts. It turned out, however, that the plot never made this decision necessary, so they abandoned the idea, and instead gave the characters regular hands, and separate tools. See more

Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!
Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more
A version of the movie with a special extended ending aired on Cartoon Network and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Television in 2004, before the release of Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui
