Trivia Big Fish

When Norther Winslow shows his half finished poem to Edward, (Grass so green / Skies so blue / Spectre is really great!) the handwriting is director Tim Burton's. Even though Young Edward lands in Korea, the ventriloquist and his puppet speak in Tagalog (language of the Philippines) while the Siamese twins and Edward speak in Cantonese (a Chinese dialect). The soldiers who pull the ventriloquist off the stage speak Mandarin Chinese (language of mainland China and Taiwan) while the other soldiers speak in Korean. Helena Bonham Carter (Jenny / The witch) was pregnant during filming.
