Pre-Production started May 20th 2010. Filming began July 12, 2010, for a a summer 2011 release, however production was slow. It is now planned for a "tentative" release between June/July 2016, because the summer 2011 release was cancelled and also due to production was slow and production finally got started August 8th, 2011. In July 2012, series co-creator Matt Maiellaro said of the film, "It is all written and great. We are just trying to convince the network do it again. The first one was such a cash cow for them, not just box office but also ad sales in the movie. So it is kind of a no-brainer. So hopefully one day." Unlike the first film, it may be released on DVD rather than theatrically. On September 18, 2013, a trailer for the film was premeired at the Alamo Drafthouse in Austin Texas, that promised a realse sometime on a Christmas.
As a late April Fool's Day joke, a user on the [adult swim] message boards posted a phony plot summary, but by the time he admitted it was fake, it was November, and the rumors had caught on. The rumors stayed on the Aqua Teen Hunger Force Wikia for over three years before they were removed. The made-up plot was about Chicken Bittle being revived by BillyWitchDoctor.com and teaming up with Dr. Weird, after the doctor's having his vacation ruined by a war between Mexico and the United States.
- George Lowe expressed interest being Space Ghost again in the sequel when it was offically announced in 2008 and rumors speculated in 2009 while the film was in development. But on May 20, 2010, the day Pre-Production began, Lowe offically announced he would come back as Space Ghost.
- The film was aimed for a summer 2011 release, then a Summer 2012 release, and now the release date is unknown possibly due to the Boston Bomb Scare .
- On June 3rd, 2010, Adult Swim aired a bump stating the current status of the film. It read "Not Happening". Many people believe the film is cancelled, however there is no official word that the film is still happening, but speculation is that they may be just saying that to distract people from waiting for the film to release. In the fall of 2011 at a pannel convention they confirmed the film is still happening and then aimed for the 2012 release, but is now aimed for a 2016 release. The film may be released in 3D, as part of the new 3D fad of the 21st century.
- Lowe has stated that Death Fighter will be the last time he voices Space Ghost, but may ocasionally voice him on SGC2C commercials, which has been stated not to really count, and has said Space Ghost has been a fun character to voice & will always be happy he got to be Space Ghost. It's also stated this truly will be his last time being Space Ghost as he retired the character in 2012, but is waiting for this film to truly say goodbye to the character.
