In honor of author Jack London's love of nature, the making of this film was eco-friendly. There were no single-use plastic bottles, only biodegradable plates and cutlery were used. In addition, leftover food was donated, the crew employed solar-powered generators, and relied on recycled paper.
Some say that's the legend. Not so. You see, I knew him once, when he was just a dog at a men side. And even all this land is his, every summer, when he comes down to the valley, he remembers kind hands and old masters... before he went to his own.....
In the beginning of the movie, a sign on a building in the background has "Groceries" misspelled as "Grocereries."
This is the first film released under the 20th Century Studios banner (previously known as 20th Century Fox).
Thus, there is a new 20th Century Studios logo, which is an updated version of the classic Fox logo.
Prior to re-shoots, Mercedes, Charles, and the remaining dog team die (off-screen) on the broken-up river; only Hal survives to return to Dawson and confront John Thornton in the Argonaut saloon. (Paraphrased: "I lost everything because of you: my dogs... my sister...") Despite successful test screenings, studio heads changed this to Hal saying, "My dogs ran off" -- indicating the team and (one assumes) Mercedes and Charles survived -- in an attempt to keep children from being upset.
