Trivia

This Movie interestingly had a much higher budget than all of Laika's previous movies. Their First 4 Movies had budgets of around 60 Million, while Missing Link has a budget of 100 Million (a 40 Million Difference). It's possible the bigger cast, filled with more well known actors compared to their previous movies, resulted in the higher budget. See more »

Goofs

Though the film takes place no later than 1886 (as evidence of the Statue of Liberty being shown under construction), Mr. Link has zips up his pants, decades before the zipper was patented. See more »

Quotes

Stenk: [Stenk stands over Lionel, who is dangling from a ledge] This ain't about the pay-check anymore, just good old-fashioned, self-centred pride.
Lord Piggot-Dunceb: Well, you know what they say pride comes before.
Stenk: Wait a minute, I know this.
[Sir Lionel pulls Stenk off the ledge]

Crazy Credits

The closing credits are written as notations on various objects that Sir Lionel and Mr. Link use to plan their next adventure. At one point, Mr. Link drags a plate of cookies across the frame and eats one off-screen.

At the end of the credits, Mr. Link finishes off a drawing of him and Sir Lionel smiling next to one another. See more »
