All of Lady Rainicorn’s dialogue is written in English in storyboards of the episodes she is in. Her voice actor Niki Yang translates her lines in Korean during voice sessions.

Jeremy Shada was chosen to voice Finn after his older brother Zach, who played the character in the pilot, was unable to reprise his role due to his changing voice.
