- All-Star Cast: Despite it's status as an independent film, it managed to get quite a massive cast, including Emily Blunt, Danny DeVito, John Krasinski, Ian Mckellen, Sylvester Stallone, Raven-Symoné, Patrick Warburton, Wallace Shawn, Gilbert Gottfried, Harvey Fierstien, Tara Strong, James Arnold Taylor and Kevin Grevioux. And this doesn't even include the original musical performances by artists such as Howard Jones, Huey Lewis and the News, Toad the Wet Sprocket, and Michael Bublé.
- Doing It for the Art: Despite the corporate sounding premise, this film is actually a passion project for director/writer/producer Scott Christian Sava. He independently made the film after studios who optioned his works ended up not adapting them into film. Much of the film was directed from his basement and he even personally painted the film's poster himself. He's also very open on the film on social media, and has personally replied to nearly all of the trailer's YouTube comments, even the ones that are not hosted on his channel.
- Fake American: We have Emily Blunt, who's British, as Zoe. Ian Mckellen's character Horatio can also count, being that he's related to Owen, yet makes no commitment to hide his accent.
- I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: This is the second project after Puppy Dog Pals to have Huey Lewis, Tara Strong, and Patrick Warburton.
- Name's the Same:
- Older Than They Think: An episode of Doraemon had centered around the idea of magical animal crackers before.
- The Other Marty: In the teaser trailer, Zoe and Owen were voiced by Tara Strong and James Arnold Taylor, who ended up voicing different characters in the final product, Talia and Buffalo Bob respectively.
- Playing Against Type: Danny DeVito as the kind-hearted, goofy and lovable mentor clown Chesterfield.
- Relationship Voice Actor:
- The Shelf of Movie Languishment: Currently in this state as of now. Originally intended to be released on April 21, 2017 by the struggling Relativity Media, before financial difficulties would force them to let go of the film. It was then set for release on September 1, 2017 by an undisclosed studio before they disappeared soon afterwards. It's not known who will ultimately distribute the film as of yet, but these deals left the producers disillusioned with the Hollywood system.
