This is a "Wild Mass Guess" entry, where we pull out all the sanity stops on theorizing. The regular entry on this topic is elsewhere. Please see this programme note.
The voice (Shelby Flint) singing the somber songs in this movie, is either Penny's singing voice, or what her singing voice will sound like when she gets older.
  • Jackie Evancho proves that even little girls can have singing voices beyond their years...
    • Either that or it's merely being sung by a Penny-esque perspective...

Cody from The Rescuers Down Under is Cody Martin
  • I mean think about it! They're both blond, sorta timid and obviously American. I think that he was taken by his dad to Australia because that's the only place where he could get a gig. Cody wanders away, gets found by the poacher and goes on the adventure. His parents, finding out what had happened, takes him back to America. And Cody, obviously scarred by the adventure, never ever wants to think about it again.
    • I wouldn't call Cody timid.
      • Cody doesn't live with his dad, but with his mom. He even clearly tells Marahute that his dad is "gone". And if this theory is true, then where was Zack during the events of the movie? Cody never mentions him.

Cody's father was a ranger.

Even for a young, impressionable, naive kid who has the whole Australian outback as his playground, Cody seems very attached to and concerned about the animals, and he is constantly throwing the threat of the rangers in MacLeach's face; this suggests at the very least that Cody has either been taught by his mother or teachers a great respect for rangers, or he's seen them in action. If his father was a ranger, though, this would explain Cody's feelings and loyalty in a more personal manner, particularly if his father was killed by one of the poachers he was hunting down. (No, not necessarily MacLeach, who might have recognized Cody or who might have recognized him, though it could have been.) This could also explain the mysterious ability Cody has to talk to animals (assuming it isn't some special talent only children have), if it's a talent rangers have and Cody inherited it.

Cody's mother is actually her stepmother.
Considering he has an American accent, he was actually born and raised in America, while moving to Australia with his biological dad.

The star of faith was actually Penny's birth mother (and/or father, but it would seem more likely to be her mother) giving her signals of hope or comfort from Heaven.

There actually is a mouse United Nations, the Rescue Aid Society just uses the same room for it's meetings.
It would make more sense, after all why would saving troubled humans be such a high priority for mice as a whole?

Of course Kyubey contracted with Penny at one point.
Or at least in another timeline.

Her Witch form might be Albertine. Albertine's imagery suggests that she was young, and perhaps rather lonely. Plus Albertine obviously liked drawing, and one scene prominently showed a drawing of Penny with parents.

Mc Leach is the villain from Wolf Creek.
Or perhaps related to him or an apprentice. Cody should thank his lucky stars he managed to escape...
