    • In the Brazilian dub, Red, Matilda and Chuck are voiced by Brazilian comedians Marcelo Adnet (who had previously done dub work for Zookeeper), Dani Calabresa (who previously voiced Disgust in the dub of Inside Out) and Fábio Porchat (who previously voiced Olaf in the dub for Frozen), while Stella, Hal and Bubbles are voiced by Brazilian internet celebrities, with Stella being voiced by Pathy do Reis and Hal & Bubbles being voiced by The Piologo Brothers
    • In the French dub, Red is voiced by Omar Sy.
  • Children Voicing Children: With one notable exception (Ava Acres voicing Timothy at the start of the movie), most of the young, named birds are voiced by children of matching gender:
    • Bobby, the young purple bird who witnessed Red assaulting Billy the Sign, was voiced by Max Charles, known for portraying young Peter Parker in the ''The Amazing Spider-Man'' film duology, another Sony venture.
    • Dylan was voiced by Vincent Oswald.
    • Samantha Cohen voices a hatchling named after herself.

    • The Blues are all voiced by boys, Pierce Gagnon, Noah Schnapp and Owen Wilder Vaccaro. Gagnon also starred in another animated bird film, Rio 2.
  • Cross-Dressing Voices: Ava Acres voicing Timothy, who's a boy.
  • Cowboy BeBop at His Computer: This video featuring comparisons between game and movie characters thinks that Cyrus appeared in the games and Leonard is King Pig.
  • Dawson Casting: Josh Gad and Kate Mckinnon probably had to sound like teenagers to voice Chuck and Stella, respectively.
  • Meta Casting: A Subversion of this trope. Sean Penn is (in)famously known for his Hair-Trigger Temper personality, so it's no surprise that he was cast as one of the titular Birds. The catch is that the Bird Penn voices is Terrence, aka the one Bird who doesn't have a single line of dialogue and (aside from a couple of grunts) is almost always silent.
  • Missing Trailer Scene: A number of scenes that were in the trailers and TV spots did not make it into the film:
  • Playing Against Type: Bill Hader, who previously voiced good guys like Flint Lockwood and Fear, is voicing the Big Bad King Mudbeard.
  • Relationship Voice Actor:
    • Stella's voice actress from the Italian and Latin American dubs (Domitilla D'Amico and Cristina Hernández) both played Trixie from Speed Racer.
    • Josh Gad and Danny McBride are also featured in Good Vibes.
    • Not to mention that this is the third film to involve both Josh Gad and Peter Dinklage.
  • Retroactive Recognition: One of the Blues is voices by Noah Schnapp—who would later go on to play Will Byers.
  • Short Run in Peru: The movie premiered in the UK and Finland a week before it was shown in the US, whilst France was the first to premiere the film - nine days prior!
  • What Could Have Been:
    • Swear words (such as "damn, hell, crap", and even one instance of "ass") were intended to be in the film, but toned down in order to keep the PG rating.
    • Tobuscus was set to cameo in the film as a character named Perry, but his cameo was cut from the film when Turner was accused of rape in April 2016.

How well does it match the trope?
