Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves

Trivia: To date, this is the only film ever directed by Dean Cundey. Cundey, an award-winning cinematographer who has worked on classic films such as "Halloween," "Back to the Future" and "Jurassic Park," was personally approved by star Rick Moranis for the job. However, Cundey learned that he wasn't particularly fond of the directing process, and chose to go back to being a cinematographer after the film's completion.


Trivia: The final live-action film to star Rick Moranis before he mostly retired from acting to take care of his kids after his wife's unfortunate passing. Moranis is however tentatively attached to appear in a legacy sequel titled "Shrunk," though the film has been stuck in development hell for some time.


Trivia: Due to the financial success of the previous two films, Disney originally intended for this to be a theatrical film. However, after their success with the direct-to-video animated sequels "The Return of Jafar" and "Aladdin and the King of Thieves," Disney decided to make this their first foray into a direct-to-video live-action sequel. Given it was gamble, this decision unfortunately resulted in the budget being lowered substantially in comparison to the previous two films.


Continuity mistake: Near the beginning, just after the people are shrunk, the pattern on the floor keeps changing. In the closeups its really big compared to the people, and from farther away its smaller compared to the people.
