Where was Into the Wild filmed?
Consequently, where did Into the Wild take place?
Setting. This book follows the travels of Chris McCandless mostly in the western portion of the United States, as well as in Alaska, Mexico, and Virginia. The events in the book span various years but most important events take place in the 1980s and 1990s.
Similarly, where is the bus from Into the Wild located? Location of Denali National Park in Alaska, the site of the bus.
Secondly, did they film into the wild at the real bus?
Shot on-location, except for the bus scenes. According to Sean Penn, they abandoned the idea of shooting at the real bus out of respect for Christopher and the McCandless family. Instead, they built a set in the wilderness, with an exact replica of the real bus.
Did they use a real moose in into the wild?
Emile Hirsch: Yes. We didn't actually shoot the moose but the moose was roadkill that they found on the side of the road.
