An unusually brave mouse helps to restore happiness to a forlorn kingdom after making friends with a gentleman rat.
Jack Black were considered for the role of Gregory.
Oh, Despereaux... There are so many wonderful things to be afraid of when you just learn to know how scary they are.
When Despereaux is about to be dropped into the rat dungeon, he has red string wrapped around his waist. The camera cuts away to show the dungeon, and when it comes back to see Despereaux, the red string is missing for one shot. When the camera shows him again before being dropped, the string reappears properly.
