Jon Heder drew all of the drawings in the movie except the unicorn.
Jon Heder was paid $1,000 to play Napoleon Dynamite. The movie grossed over $40 million in the United States.
The film was shot in 22 days.
In real life, the llama’s name is Dolly and she belongs to director/co-writer Jared Hess’ mother.
The opening title sequence was partially re-shot due to some of the executives at Fox Searchlight not liking the look of the actor’s hands who placed the food into the shot. They flew out a hand model to reshoot some of the shots with the director.
Deb’s photo studio is actually the basement of the interior version of Napoleon Dynamite’s house.
