Trivia: Halo 4: Forward Unto Dawn
  • Hey, It's That Guy!: Susan became a UNSC cadet named Silvia! She's still a good shot.
  • Prop Recycling:
    • A lot of the special effect CGI models were taken directly from assets made for Halo 4's own in game cutscenes. This can lead to some minor Continuity Snarls if a viewer is being picky.
    • Cadmon's ODST armor (along with other ODSTs shown) is reused from the live-action short "The Life", also known as the "We Are ODST" commercial for Halo 3: ODST.
    • The armor worn by Kelly-087 and Fred-104 are modifications of the armor worn for the Halo: Reach "Deliver Hope" commercial. Amusingly enough, one of the helmet's modifications was attaching the prop of an armored knee plate over the bottom of the visor.note 
    • All the warthogs shown are the same prop with different modifications. This prop warthog is a fully functional vehicle made by WETA for the long-abandoned Halo film. It was also used in the Neill Blomkamp short "Landfall" to promote Halo 3.
  • Saved from Development Hell: In a sense. The idea for a Halo movie had been kicked around for a long, long time, but fell through after too much studio bureaucracy. Finally Microsoft decided to fund its own movie and the result was this film.
