First Animated film for both Hannibal Buress and Kate McKinnon (voice of Timothy's parents at the start of the film, as well as Stella for McKinnon). Their 2nd Animated Films also released in 2016, being Illumination's The Secret Life of Pets (2016) and Disney/Pixar's Finding Dory (2016) respectively, both of which star Albert Brooks.
Red: Nuh uh! No means no!
Hug Trader: Hmmm.
When Chuck and Red are in the King Pig's castle, then they are in the corridor, then Chuck is opening all the doors and then Red is opening a door when he sees two pigs in dresses, they are looking the same as the girls in Shining, and they're holding their hands. So this is a reference to Shining.
The first half of the closing credits revolves around the characters from both islands dancing to the cover of "I Will Survive", performed by Demi Lovato, heard via Mighty Eagle's gramophone from his hideout.
UK versions are cut to remove three moments of wordplay on strong language to get a 'U' rating instead of a 'PG'.
