Eight months were spent scouting locations, including Ireland, China, and Argentina. Although parts of the film were made in New Zealand, like its predecessor, the majority of shooting took place in Czech, Slovenia, and Poland, because of the larger sets available. The stone prop was flown from New Zealand to Barrandov Studios in Prague, Czech. In a remote Slovenian location, everyone had to be checked for ticks on a regular basis, since infestations in the cast and crew's hair were common. Because of tax credits, post-production was based in the UK to qualify the movie as a British film. See more »
(at around 40 mins) In the scene where catapults are being built, there is a two-person saw in use. In actual use, the worker "in the pit" below the sawn log should be covered in sawdust and wood shavings. However, the actor in the shot is clean. See more »
The original theatrical version of this film was released by Walt Disney Pictures, but all television, video, and theatrical re-issue versions of the film are distributed by 20th Century Fox. As a result, the current version in circulation opens with a 20th Century Fox logo. This happened as a result of Disney deciding against its distribution deal when it expired in 2010; Walden Media sold its share of the rights to 20th Century Fox that year. See more »

Seven reasons to see this movie
I have to admit that I was somewhat reluctant going to see this movie because I thought the first was lacking in many ways. First of all I would have to say the characters where more developed which connected to the audience giving a more intimate inclination. Second there were more action sequences which lasted much longer than the first movie. Third the special effects were more realistic. Fourth the actors/actresses embodied the characters persona which kept you focused on the story line. Fifth there is more comedy than the first although I would stress it is infrequent. Sixth the stunning visual settings add an additional amount of realism. Seven although a bit predictable the combination of the above will keep you on the edge of your seat. I would highly recommend this movie if you liked the first but expected more.
