Naughty, nice. You better believe.
Legends unite.
Santa Claus Is More Than A Legend
The Sandman Is More Than A Dream
When darkness falls, the Guardians will rise.
The Easter Bunny is more than a fable.
Jack Frost is more than a myth.
The Tooth Fairy is more than a fairy tale.
When the Man in the Moon communicates to North to identify Jack as the new Guardian, the moon is full. One day later when viewing the moon from North's home, the moon is clearly 3/4 full. Way too much has disappeared over a period of 24 hours.

When Tooth punches Pitch near the end, there are five tooth fairies hovering by her shoulder. However, the scene switches and she is not shown for a moment. When the scene switches back, only one tooth fairy, presumably Baby Tooth, is with her. As the scene continues, the number of fairies with her continues to change, first to eight, then to none, then back to five.

During the whole movie you can see the full Moon. But the whole movie (except for the very beginning) is set in a few days, so this isn't possible.

Factual Mistake
Every tooth collected by the Tooth Fairy has roots, like a pulled adult tooth, but most of the teeth are supposed to be baby teeth, those that have wiggled loose after being displaced by permanent ones. They should be hollow shells without roots.

Jack is 18 in the movie, which means he is 18 when he dies. Since baby teeth are usually replaced by the age of 13, they shouldn't contain Jack's memory of the day he died.
Bunnymund opens a rabbit hole and jumps down it. This is a reference to Lewis Carroll's "Alice in Wonderland", where a rabbit hole leads into another dimension.

Leonardo DiCaprio was originally set to voice Jack Frost, but dropped out of the film during pre-production.

Christopher Lee, Dwayne Johnson, Natalie Portman, Hugh Laurie, Ian McShane, and voice actor Tom Kenny were all rumored to be involved at various points of production.

The last DreamWorks Animation film to be distributed by Paramount.

Jack's animators and the directors have stated he's 18 in the film. His voice actor, Chris Pine was 32 when he recorded his lines for Jack.

In one scene, the Tooth Fairy finds a mouse beneath the pillow and identifies it as "one of us, European division". Ratoncito (Little Mouse) Perez or The Tooth Mouse is a children's book character created by Spanish author Luis Coloma in 1894 and that is said to replace lost baby teeth with gifts in Spain, Portugal, France, Italy and Latin America.

At the beginning of the movie, Jack Frost walks through a Colonial American village. In the background, the folk song village musicians are playing is called "Kemp's Jig." This was a popular early 18th-century English dance song named in honor of William Kempe. He was a famous 16th century English comic stage actor whose work influenced modern comedic acting, stand up comedy and improvisational comic skits. He may have performed in some of William Shakespeare's earlier works. He is best known for a stunt where he actually made an entire journey dancing the whole route between London and Norwich (about 100 miles or 161 km).

When Jack Frost is kidnapped to North's HQ, he calls Bunny a kangaroo. Later on, Frost apologizes for that, to what Bunny replies: "It's the accent, isn't it?". This is a reference to Hugh Jackman, who voices Bunny and was born in Australia, known as the land of kangaroos.

Bunny mentions that Jack Frost caused a blizzard on Easter Sunday of 1968, a reference to an actual event.

Whenever North (voiced in a Russian accent by Alec Baldwin) is surprised or alarmed, he exclaims loudly with the name of a classical Russian composer - for example "Shostakovich!'' Just before he falls down the rabbit hole; "Rimsky-Korsakov! That's a lot of eggs!" in Bunnymund's warren.
