  1. Very interesting tidbit: can you guess what, according to Byron Howard, Nick Wilde's original name was?

    Jack Savage.

    That's right. Nick Wilde was Jack Savage at one point. I'm guessing that the jackrabbit was changed to a fox because, according to Byron Howard, he loved foxes as a kid. So it's plausible that Jack Savage was changed from a jackrabbit to a fox under Byron's suggestion. Then after that, once they came up with the 'savage serum', they decided that having that name would be a head-scratcher. So they changed his last name only. So at this point, the fox Jack Savage became the fox Jack Wilde. However, the final change to his name came about because, in the studio right next door, they were working on Gigantic, an adaptation of Jack and the Beanstalk. Know where I'm going with this? They didn't want their protagonist to have the same name as the protagonist of Gigantic, and so came the final name change to Nick Wilde.

    On my theory about Jack Savage being changed from jackrabbit to fox, I've tweeted Byron Howard and we'll see if he responds.
