Trivia / Open Season

  • Completely Different Title: The Spanish-language dub is called Amigos Salvajes (Wild Friends).
  • The Danza: Gordon Tootoosis as Sheriff Gordy.
  • Direct-to-Video: The sequels.
  • The Other Darrin:
    • For unknown reasons, Martin Lawrence and Ashton Kutcher did not reprise their roles as Boog and Elliot for any of the sequels. For the second movie, Lawrence was replaced by Mike Epps and Kutcher was replaced by Joel McHale. Then in the third movie, Epps and McHale were replaced by Matthew Munn and Matt Taylor. Then in the Scared Silly halloween special, Boog and Elliot were recasted yet again, this time with Donny Lucas and Will Townsend.
      • Lampshaded in the third film, where when Boog meets up with the other forest animals again, they initially refuse to believe its him partly because his voice sounds different.
    • Matt Taylor (who voices countless other characters in the franchise) replaced Patrick Warburton as Ian in the sequels. In Scared Silly, Taylor was replaced by Brian Drummond.
    • Though Jane Krakowski and Billy Connolly reprised their roles in the second film as Giselle and McSquizzy respectively, they didn't return for the third film and were replaced by Melissa Strum and Andre Sogliozzo.
    • Shaw was voiced by Gary Sinise in the original film. In Scared Silly, he is voiced by Trevor Devall
  • Playing Against Type: This is the first (and probably last) time that Gary Sinise passes from a dramatic role like Det. Mac Taylor into a Laughably Evil hunter like Shaw.
