The filmmakers intentionally cast newcomer actors in leading and supporting roles to introduce a lot of fresh talent with regards to young actors required for the film. A mixture of South African and Ugandan youth were cast in various roles. The only big name actors in the film are Lupita Nyong'o and David Oyelowo.

Every game of chess but one ends with a checkmate, something which hardly ever happens once players have acquired some experience. The one exception is when Phiona resigns a game which is treated as a personal crisis, when in fact it's normal to resign from hopeless positions - especially when playing with the black pieces, for this brings the disadvantage of not making the first move. Meanwhile, never seen in the movie is a game ending with a draw, which in chess is extremely common.
The credits are displayed initially with images from the film and of the characters and events beside/ behind them. This then changes to a music clip of "#1 Spice" by Young Cardamom And Hab (from the soundtrack) being shown to the left of the credits. The clip continues until the end of the credits.
