Trivia
One of the lumberjacks (played by director Gary J. Tunnicliffe) expresses a wish to be a Pet Shop Owner, instead (at around 1h 2 mins). This is a reference to a famous Monty Python sketch where the reverse situation is the case.

Director Gary J. Tunnicliffe wanted to use his knowledge and love of martial arts to create an amazing fight sequence in the movie, but knew that to do this and still maintain a G rating might be hard. To solve the problem, he created a two and a half minute 'Ninja Pillow Fight' and called upon some of his 'industry friends' (who can only be described as a group of 'Martial Arts/Stunts Masters and Legends') to choreograph and perform the sequence.

In the first classroom scene, you can see a drawing of a Flux Capacitor from Back to the Future (1985) on the board behind the Headmaster (played by Christopher Lloyd, who also played Doc Brown, the inventor of the Flux Capacitor in the film).

Goofs
When Jack begins climbing the beanstalk, the words "Jack begins climbing the magical beanstalk" appear in the book of Jack's story. When Jack climbs down to see for himself, the page goes blank again (at around 53 mins), but as Jack turns the page to see the next page, we see that the original page was not blank, but was the "Once Upon a Time ..." page.

When Jack begins to talk alone with the headmaster, the C.O.W. (computer of wonder) lies on the headmaster's podium (at around 11 mins). When Jack leaves the classroom he takes it from his own desk.
