Did You Know?

Trivia

The main reasons as to why the characters were redesigned so drastically from the look of the original LEGO figures is that the toys had very little in the way of expressiveness and convincing articulation, and the numerous holes on them looked very distracting when the characters moved. The eyes were also brought forward into the mask-holes because on the toys, the eyes were only visible from very few angles. The mouth pieces of the original toy heads were re-imagined as circular robotic "tongues". See more »

Goofs

Not strictly an error, but it's pointless for Gali to ask Lewa to use Tahu's fire-sword to channel his healing powers through and cleanse the poison from Tahu. Lewa could simply have used his own sword, since regardless of what tool he uses, his healing ability works the same. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Turaga Vakama: Gathered friends, listen again to our legend, of the Bionicle. In a time, before time, the great spirit, Mata Nui, fell from the heavens, carrying we, the ones called the Matoran. We were separate, and without purpose, so the Great Spirit illuminated us with the three virtues: Unity, Duty, and Destiny!

Crazy Credits

Toward the end of the credits, a sentence written in Matoran script appears. It reads: "No Rahi were harmed in the making of this film". ("Rahi" is a term that refers to Mata-Nui's fauna.) See more »

Alternate Versions

A version of the movie with a special extended ending aired on Cartoon Network and the Australian Broadcasting Corporation Television in 2004, before the release of Bionicle 2: Legends of Metru Nui. It contained additional narration by Turaga Vakama (Christopher Gaze) during which clips from that movie played. The narration also explained that Mata Nui has not awakened yet, which is a point the original movie was somewhat vague on. See more »
