The locations depicted in the film are digital recreations of actual places in the Solar System, built from real photos and map data where available.

"Wanderlust", the interesting documentary Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini directed, is one of the best things about the role of road movies in our culture. This most American form of entertainment can be found in films from other countries, but it's the American vast landscape, which gives films of this genre the appeal and the significance that translates so well in movies made by some of the best creators in the business. "Wanderlust" succeeds in the interviews with some of the best creators of this particular style of movie making. We hear from Dennis Hopper, whose "Easy Rider", and others, typify the restlessness of the people taking the road. Allison Anders, another director that has set her stories that way, speaks intelligently about what is behind it all. Callie Khouri, Chris Eyre, Alexander Payne, Wim Wenders, Sam Shepard, Gus Van Sant and all the others contribute to make clear as to why we are all attracted to the road and what it all means to them.

Wanderly Wagon was an Irish children's television series which aired on RTÉ from Saturday 30 September 1967 until 1982. Wanderly Wagon followed human and puppet characters as they travelled around Ireland visiting interesting locations, rescuing Princesses and generally doing good. The original premise of the show expanded to follow the characters to magical lands of Irish mythology, and into outer space. Don Lennox and Jim O'Hare came up with the idea of Wanderly Wagon when Lennox was giving O'Hare a lift home from work. O'Hare was recalling a recent family holiday spent on a horse drawn caravan in County Cork. Lennox became the first producer of Wanderly Wagon and O'Hare designed the wagon, the flying Sweet shop and the show's costumes. Various episodes were written by Neil Jordan, Carolyn Swift, Pat Ingoldsby, Martin Duffy and Frank Kelly, who also played several characters on the show. The Wagon itself could fly. Using chroma key special effects, the Wagon was shown hovering in midair, landing in various magical lands, and even traveling underwater. The original wagon used in the series can now be seen in The Little Museum of Dublin on St. Stephen's Green in Dublin. The series developed a tradition of transmitting a Christmas Day show from a Dublin children's hospital every year.

Wandering Sun is a Japanese manga and anime television series created by Keisuke Fujikawa and Mayumi Suzuki, and which ran for 26 episodes in 1971. Both Yoshiyuki Tomino and Yasuhiko Yoshikazu were involved in the production of Wandering Sun, and would later again collaborate on the ground-breaking and genre defining series Space Battleship Yamato and Mobile Suit Gundam. Wandering Sun tells the story of two girls switched at birth, who compete to become successful singers after meeting at high-school. The TV series was also released in Italy under the title Jane e Micci and in France as Nathalie et ses Amis. This series was itself a ground-breaker in that it was perhaps the first anime series to depict the entertainment industry - specifically popular music, which would be a major plot point in many anime to come from Creamy Mami to Perfect Blue. The voice actress for Nozomi, Junko Fujiyama, was an actual singer who used the series as a launching pad for her own real-life singing career, releasing several singles while the series was still on the air. The anime, however, toned down some of the more intense and mature elements of the manga for a prime-time TV audience.
