** The DVD Commentary also reveals that earlier drafts had Gloriosa's magical powers cover many aspects of nature (such as controlling the wind, as an example); it was eventually toned down to be exclusive control over plants. A hint of this unused concept remains in the novelization: the boat crashes against the dock because Gloriosa conjured a gust of wind (in the film, it's because she pushed it with vines).
** The Shadowbolts (except, it seems, Indigo Zap) were apparently intended to return, [[https://www.mlpmerch.com/2018/01/unique-look-at-equestria-girls-concept.html as concept art of the film's doll line has some rough design ideas]] for Sour Sweet, Sugarcoat (both "Boho" and "Geometric" styles), Lemon Zest and Sunny Flare (only "Geometric"). At which point they got axed is hard to tell, but it seems to have been fairly early in the production of the dolls.

* InvisibleAdvertising: While the movie was promoted just fine and did well, the toys got little to no advertising by Hasbro. In fact, it never even got a ''commercial.'' Hasbro was too busy focusing on their Equestria Girls Minis dolls (which were a huge overnight success for them) to even care about Legend of Everfree's toyline. Some have speculated the Equestria Girls Minis are the reason for the downfall and eventual discontinuation of the full sized Equestria Girls dolls and with Legend of Everfree's non-existing advertising and extremely hard to find dolls which got to the point where most of them were online exclusives, it's not exactly doing the Minis any favors.
* NovelizationFirst: Unlike the previous three movies, the novelization was released (officially; it actually got leaked a few days prior) on September 6 just five days of being released an exact month before the (English) premiere.
* ShortRunInPeru: The movie was released on September 24[-[[superscript:th]]-] in Brazil, a week before its Netflix debut. And ''with an [=SAP=] track in English.'' Cue the upload to Website/YouTube by morning on the 25[-[[superscript:th]]-] -- and the inevitable takedown. It also bears mentioning that it [[AvertedTrope wasn't]] EditedForSyndication.
