Did you know?
Some main characters that did not make it into the movie are Malum, a former Glatorian of the Fire Village, now banished into the desert and Gelu, former Glatorian of the Ice Village, now a caravan guard. Although they have played important roles in the story set before the movie, they had to be left out of it, simply because there were already enough characters to focus on.

The portrayal of the Glatorian character named Gresh in this movie differs greatly from his earlier appearances in the Bionicle book and comic series that take place before the movie's story. In those, he acts maturely and seriously for his age, and in the movie he acts much more childishly. This is the direct opposite of what viewers are used to, as usually immature characters become mature in the course of a story. However all the comics and books were written when the movie's script had already been finished, meaning that the way Gresh acts in the movie is what his creators originally intended him to behave like. The in-story explanation for this is that Gresh learned to be more bright and less serious with the help of his hot-headed but playful female friend Kiina, who acts just as juvenile in some scenes.

Kiina's name was based off the name of story writer Greg Farshtey's (now ex) wife Jackina.

Metus orders Mata Nui to throw away his shield and his weapon, although he is technically carrying two shields and no weapon.

Berix pushes Kiina aside to get a view at the fight scene and yell at Tuma. However since they are in a cage at this point, he was perfectly able to see what was going on form where he was standing. He didn't need to shove his companion to the side.

If you watch the spinning nuts and bolts on the characters closely, you can notice that at times, they suddenly start to move choppy. Instead of making full turns, they appear from one position into the next between two frames.

What was the purpose of the discovery they made at the end?
Throughout the film, hints are dropped that there may be more to Bara Magna's villages than what can be seen. At the end of the movie, the characters discover that by dragging the villages together and joining them up, they form a gigantic robot.In the planned but scrapped sequel, our heroes would have tried to find a power source for the robot, using the map of a maze they discover on the shield of a Skrall soldier. After re-powering the robot, Mata Nui would have transfered his soul into it, to use it to battle the evil Makuta, who has taken over his original giant robot body in the movie's opening scene.
Why didn't the movie get a sequel?
LEGO put their BIONICLE line of toys on hiatus during the production of the film's sequel. Since they wanted to move on to other projects, the movie was scrapped along with the planned toy-line.
