- Acting for Two: Bobby Cannavale not only voices Valiente, but also his father in the film's prologue.
- All-Star Cast: In addition to having John Cena voicing the main character, the voice cast includes big names such as Kate McKinnon, Peyton Manning, David Tennant, Anthony Anderson, Gina Rodriguez, Gabriel Iglesias, and Flula Borg.
- The Danza: Juan is voiced by the Colombian singer Juanes.
- Fake Nationality: With the exception of Miguel Ángel Silvestre as El Primero, none of the cast is actually from Spain. The only other exception to this is David Tennant being Scottish.
- Missing Trailer Scene: Una telling Ferdinand that he doesn't need to be a fighting bull and only needs to look like one never comes up in the actual movie.
- Multiple Languages, Same Voice Actor: Juanes dubs himself in the Latin American Spanish dub as Juan for obvious reasons.
- No Dub for You: Interestingly averted in this case between Latin America and Spain, in stark contrast with Coco, when the Latin American Spanish dub was used for both that region and Spain, due of the Mexican setting, albeit, the Latin American Spanish dub uses neutral accents out for respect for the very Spaniard setting.
- Release Date Change: Originally scheduled for July 2017, it was pushed back to Christmas so as not to get clobbered by The Last Jedi. It ended up backfiring because The Last Jedi was also pushed back to December. On the same day as Ferdinand, no less.
- Truth in Television: Goats really are often used on farms and ranches as companions to calm down anxious livestock.
