Babe, a pig raised by sheepdogs, learns to herd sheep with a little help from Farmer Hoggett.
The music for the movie's theme song is taken from the Organ Symphony by Camille Saint-Saëns, whose most famous composition is "Carnival of the Animals."
This is a tale about an unprejudiced heart, and how it changed our valley forever. There was a time not so long ago when pigs were afforded no respect, except by other pigs; they lived their whole lives in a cruel and sunless world. In those days ...
When farmer Hoggett's wife is measuring babe, it is a clear sunny day. When the camera shows farmer Hoggett watching, it is raining in the background.
Jonah Michaud and Karen Bruner are listed as being "Internet Bandits".
Most films released in German-speaking areas in Europe are dubbed in Germany with the same standard German pronunciation. This film, however, was also released in a special version that was re-dubbed for Austria. Each of the animals speaks in a very specific regional Austrian accent: Ferdinand the Duck sounds like a Tyrolean, Duchess the cat has a Vorarlberg accent and so on. The mice sing Styrian folk songs. This Austrian version was included on the DVD, however not on the Blu-ray.
