Rumors about a possible Planetokio film had circulated since the release of the first game in 1999. The first attempt at a film adaptation was in development at Gingo Animation in 2001. However, the film did not materialize since the studio could not find a script that they liked. In 2006, in an interview with The New York Times, Geo G. announced that Gingo would possibly start working on a Planetokio film once more, although he said "nothing's official". In September 2009, Geo stated that a Planetokio film was not being planned. He said, "It's too early to say. Everyone's talking about it, but if we had ideas it would be great."

A 3D computer-animated feature film based on the Planetokio series was officially announced by Gingo on July 10, 2011, after the success of Gabriel Garza (2011). Audel LaRoque was announced to write and direct, with Michael Wildshill and David K. Thompson producing. Don Rhymer, the writer of Surf's Up and Rio, joined the project after Geo and LaRoque wrote a treatment based on a discussion among themselves, Steve Samono, and Terry Ward. LaRoque said, "One of the biggest questions we've gotten in the last few years is "Are you going to make a Planetokio movie?" As in matter of fact, yes, we are. When Geo, Steve, and Terry and I came up with this new idea, I just could not stop thinking about it. I was so excited about it that I knew we had to make this movie—and I wanted to direct it myself."

In June 2012, LaRoque confirmed that he planned to redesign the film's characters. On August 23, 2012, it was announced that J. Stewart Burns had been hired to write the draft for the film. However, Don Rhymer died from head and neck cancer on November 28, 2012, during the writing phase of the film. On September 13, 2013, it was confirmed that a form of the script was completed.

The Planetokio Movie was initially scheduled to be released on November 21, 2014. However, in September 2013, Universal Pictures moved the release date to December 4, 2015, a date that was originally slated for DCL: Desktop Component League. Universal chairman Donna Langley said the decision was made in order to avoid competition with other films released during the Thanksgiving season in 2014, such as Big Hero 6, Interstellar, Dumb and Dumber To (also by Universal), The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1, and Home (until its release slot was taken by Penguins of Madagascar). The release date change was also the day after Universal changed the release date of Illumination Entertainment's Minions, from December 2014 to July 2015. On October 30, 2014, Universal then pushed the film down one week to December 11, 2015, with Krampus taking its date.


On July 19, 2014, Universal released a clip from the film with the first released footage of Dr. Canbell to encourage attendance at the panel, at the San Diego Comic-Con International. At the panel they premiered a four-minute trailer, which was not publicly released but eventually leaked on the internet.

A free mobile action video game inspired by the Planetokio franchise, titled Planetokio: Sushi Run, was released on November 25, 2015. The game, developed by Gameloft, was adapted for iPhone, iPad and Android devices.


Home mediaEdit

The Planetokio Movie was released on digital HD on March 4, 2016, and on Blu-ray and DVD on March 22, 2016. The releases also include a short film titled Monkey See, Monkey Sued.
