Trivia

  • The film was originally scheduled to be released in November 26, 2021. but was pushed back, due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • It has been confirmed that two original cast members, Mel Gibson and Julia Sawalha (the original voice actors for Rocky and Ginger, respectively) will not be returning.
    • Gibson was fired from his role as Rocky owing to an antisemitic joke he made to fellow actor Winona Ryder at a party in 1995.
    • Sawalha's character, Ginger was simply recast by studio executives, who felt she sounded too old for the character. This decision has resulted in some considerable backlash, with some pointing out that the decision was ageist.
