- Kristen Stewart and Sam Claflin were previously cast in the movie Snow White and the Huntsman (2012).
- In August 2018, Kirsten Stewart said that the re-imagining is so grounded and well intentioned and really shows the way women can work together now. It tries to be warm and funny, but it lacks a kitch [sic] element that we have seen before that works so well."
- The movie featured extensive use of guns and other explosive weaponry. This is a marked change from its two cinematic predecessors, in which star and Executive Producer Drew Barrymore insisted that the Angels use no guns at all and almost no weapons aside from their own martial arts skills.
- All of the primary cars seen in this movie were manufactured by Audi or a marque it owns, the result of a product-placement deal. The list includes the Lamborghini Urus SUV that Bosley and the Angels steal while in Turkey; Audi acquired Lamborghini in 1998.
- Kristen Stewart and Sam Claflin appeared in Snow White and the Huntsman (2012).
- Naomi Scott and Elizabeth Banks appeared in Power Rangers (2017).
- This is the first Charlie's Angels movie filmed in Panavision (anamorphic), unlike its first two theatrical predecessors, which were filmed in the Super 35 format.
- The blue race car uniform and German outfit from Charlie's Angels (2000) appear in the closet.
- Ariana Grande produced the soundtrack for this movie. The first single, "Don't Call Me Angel" featuring Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, and Lana Del Rey, was released September 13, 2019.
- This is Writer, Producer, and Director Elizabeth Banks' first movie to be filmed In Panavision (anamorphic), in the 2.39:1 aspect ratio, unlike her directorial debut, Pitch Perfect 2 (2015), which was filmed in the taller 1.85:1 aspect ratio. Both movies were filmed with ARRI Alexa cameras that were supplied by Panavision.
- Ella Balinska (Jane Kano) is the tallest Angel for the entire formative trio since the 70s, her height is 1.78 m
- Writer, Producer, and Director Elizabeth Banks (Rebecca Bosley) is revealed to be the first female "Bosley", as well as the first former Angel to assume the role.
- Although the Charles Townsend Agency has expanded to depict "Bosley" as a rank within the organization, Sir Patrick Stewart is introduced as the "original" Bosley (whose actual name is John Bosley). He is shown having been digitally retconned into actual shots from the original television series, as well as the first movie adaptation, replacing David Doyle and Bill Murray, respectively. Left unmentioned was a subplot from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003), in which Bosley was played by Bernie Mac. Since Bill Murray refused to return to the role for the sequel, Mac was written in as his adoptive brother, Jimmy, whose black parents in south central Los Angeles adopted John as a child and who assumed John's role at the agency after John left for unspecified reasons.
- The cast's favorite power anthem on-set was Donna Summer's "Bad Girls".
- Ella Balinska did most of her own stunts.
- Elizabeth Banks' favorite go-to snack to eat in-between takes was yogurt parfait.
- Istanbul is the cast's favorite location.
- Writer, Producer, and Director Elizabeth Banks made the biggest outtake during filming by making Kristen Stewart and Ella Balinska laugh out loud when she couldn't say "race track".
- Elena Houghlin (Naomi Scott) calls Sabina Wilson (Kristen Stewart) "Sabrina". This is presumably a reference to Sabrina Duncan (Kate Jackson), one of the three original angels.
- When Saint (Luis Gerardo Méndez) is presenting the Angels with a healthy meal, he names the cheeses that are on the table, making a point of saving the favorite - Brie - for last. Sabrina ("Bree") was one of the original television Angels, played by Kate Jackson.
- Kristen Stewart's character was named "Sabine", which was also the name of her character in her Saturday Night Live (1975) Totino's sketch.
- Lupita Nyong'o, Emma Stone, Margot Robbie, and Jennifer Lawrence turned down roles in this movie.
- Elizabeth Banks and Sam Claflin appeared in The Hunger Games film franchise.
- Prior to the film's release, director Elizabeth Banks went on to say in an interview with the Herald Sun that "if this movie doesn't make money, it reinforces a stereotype in Hollywood that men don't go see women do action movies. They'll go and see a comic book movie with Wonder Woman (2017) and Captain Marvel (2019) because that's a male genre". The film ultimately didn't earn back half of its production budget, and Banks' statements were widely ridiculed by moviegoers who shifted the blame for the film's underperformance to its poor quality.
- John Bosley (Sir Patrick Stewart) mentions that Charlie has died, referring to John Forsythe, who voiced the aforementioned character on Charlie's Angels (1976) and the first two theatrical movie adaptations, died on April 1, 2010.
- In the closing credits, Jaclyn Smith - who played one of the original Angels, Kelly Garrett, on the television version - is revealed to be "Charlie", having used a voice modulator to emulate a male voice. Smith was the only actress to remain in the original series throughout its entire run, and Kelly was the lone Angel from the television series to appear in the later movie adaptations.
- At John Bosley's (Sir Patrick Stewart's) retirement party, photos of his early life are presented. In some of them, he is accompanied by the original Angels (Kate Jackson, Jaclyn Smith, Farrah Fawcett, and Cheryl Ladd) as well as those who appeared in the first two theatrical movie adaptations (Cameron Diaz, Lucy Liu, and Drew Barrymore).
- When the Angels are considering the possibility that the female Bosley (Elizabeth Banks) has gone rogue, they mention that it has happened before that an Angel betrayed the organization. They may be referring to Madison Lee (Demi Moore) from Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle (2003).
