----** In early concepts, Cutter was going to have a Lady Friend among the ladies-in-waiting, but hesitated to pursue her because of his job. There wasn't enough time for it with the other romances, and it was cut.

* DuelingMovies: Dueled ''WesternAnimation/ABugsLife'', but both ended up being highly critically praised and smash hits at the box office. Thanks to the far more adult nature of the script, ''Antz'' has aged better, however.

* ShoutOut:
** To ''Film/IndependenceDay'', when the kid with the magnifying glass vaporizes a dumb soldier ant who thinks the light is beautiful, a take-off on a similar dialogue. The sound effects are directly from the original ''Film/WarOfTheWorlds''.
** ''Film/{{Metropolis}}'', the scene where they try to drown the workers.
** Any resemblance to ''Film/StarshipTroopers'' during the termite battle scene is a coincidence, according to WordOfGod.
** The film also has strong elements from ''Literature/TheRedBadgeOfCourage''.
** There are several subtle shout outs in dialogue to ''Franchise/StarWars'':
*** "I hope you know what you're doing." "Yeah, me too."
*** "The Colonel is not as understanding as I am."
*** "Aren't you a little short for a war hero?"
*** "Who's the bigger idiot, the idiot or the idiot who gets kidnapped by the idiot?"

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: [[http://www.imsdb.com/scripts/Antz.html According to the original script]], General Mandible was originally called Formica. His ultimate fate, instead of being impaled on a twig, was nearly drowning before being rescued by Z and the others, then becoming a honeydew keg.
** Also, Bala wasn't just [[LockedInARoom locked in Formica's office]] in the original script - she was BoundAndGagged and dumped in the Megatunnel before being rescued by Z.

*OldShame: Woody Allen disliked doing the film mainly because the producers had him record all of his lines in 5 days and even had him redo some of the lines.
