According to visual effects house Rising Sun Pictures (RSP) in South Australia, their challenge for this film was "the film needed a digital bird to perform when the real Macaw couldn't or wouldn't." Their solution was "a 3D parrot that was integrated into the scenes via motion control and motion tracking. By squashing the bird onto a flat bed scanner we were able to extract the textures. If only!". See more »

In a day and age when sex, violence and junk is sold to us as being entertainment, this movie shines like a beacon of wholesomeness. The story is fantasy, but the characterizations were charming. This is the kind of movie our children should be seeing. Adults might find it to be too simple of a story for their taste, it certainly does not have any "snob appeal". I liked it so much that I bought a copy for my grandchildren to view. They have watched it several times and always ask to see it again. It is not full of loud nonsensical noise as you would find in a lot of the cartoon and children's features that are being offered today. And it has enough appeal for parents to watch the movie along with the kids.
