Digital Domain, the visual effects house behind this movie (and movies like IRON MAN 3 (2013) ) created a demo reel of the battle room before production that helped the producers successfully raise financing independently.
According to director Gavin Hood's commentary, several planned scenes were cut due to financing problems when one of the investors backed out of the project. The same happened with planned CGI effects when one of the CGI studios working on the movie went bankrupt during production.
During the game at the beginning of the movie, the ship piloted by Ender closely resembles the Millennium Falcon, the ship piloted by Han Solo (Harrison Ford) in the Star Wars film franchise.
