Trivia
In late 2014, Charles Strouse (the composer of the original musical's score) gave an interview to Vanity Fair in which he talked about what he liked and didn't like about this movie adaptation. One thing he didn't like was the fact that although Jay Z did consult Strouse in the initial stages of conceiving the remake, and though Strouse said he "was paid handsomely for my share of the rights," Strouse and the other original creators of the musical did not get to revise and update their own songs or write any of the new songs in the movie. Something Strouse did enthusiastically endorse about this movie version was the casting of Quvenzhané Wallis in the lead role (he called her performance "amazing") and, more generally, the idea of casting nonwhite actresses in the role--something he said he had been lobbying for since the first Broadway run of the show back in the 1970s.

Sony Pictures Entertainment, owner of Columbia Pictures, slated Annie (2014) for a December 19, 2014, release, where it will face big competition from an another film musical, Stephen Sondheim's Into the Woods (2014), directed by Rob Marshall and made by Walt Disney Pictures. Rob Marshall and Walt Disney Pictures collaborated with Columbia Pictures on the successful and well-regarded Annie (1999) in 1999.

This is the third motion picture adaptation of Strouse and Charnin's Annie. The first was director John Huston's original big-screen version (Annie (1982)), in which star Albert Finney did a wicked vocal impersonation of Huston. The second was Rob Marshall's well-regarded and more faithful adaptation (Annie (1999)).

Goofs
When they are riding in the helicopter, they are talking to each other without wearing headphones which is a total impossibility.

When Guy shows the clip of Will saving Annie on the screen he says that someone recorded it and put it on the internet. However, the video was shown from the front angle of the van when it was approaching then followed by from the side of the van when Will pulled Annie out, exactly the same edit the audience saw in the movie. If it were recorded on the phone by the bystander it would only feature one angle.

In the opening title sequence, Annie is seen boarding the 1 train at 125th St. She then departs a 6 train at Grand Central and then exits at Franklin Street back on the 1 train. She then goes to a restaurant on 12th St. Annie would not have to had to get off the 1 train at all nor would she have gone to Grand Central crosstown at all. Franklin Street is also too far south on the 1 train for 12th Street in Greenwich Village.
