Conceptual stages on Advent Leaders began in 2009. In December 2010, it was reported that Comega Studios would be collaborating with DreamWorks Animation on an animated feature film, but little else about the film was known at the time. Comega's CEO and founder Brandon Hancock was set to produce the film, while Johnny Grert, who was finishing directing Thunder Hawks, was set to direct the project based on his original idea along with Dew. At one point, Gingo got permission to find a new home for the film and turned to its frequent collaborator Universal Studios, whose animation division Universal Animation Studios is led by former Gingo co-founder and animator Michael Wildshill, a friend of Geo G.. When Universal tried to close the rights for the film and start development, Sony changed their mind, and the film returned to Sony.

Pre-production on the film began in 2011. Sony and Gingo announced the title for the film (Advent Leaders) along with its first details in April 2012.


Template:Soundtrack 6Michael Giacchino composed the film's score. Giacchino aimed to create a soundtrack which stood in its own, since Advent Leaders is "not a prequel and not a sequel", incorporating Brad Fiedel's iconic theme in The Leader: "have a nod to the past but also bring it into the future." Chinese pop singer Jane Zhang and hip hop artist Big Sean contributed "Fighting Shadows", released by Varèse Sarabande on November 25, 2014, as a soundtrack bonus track. The track is Zhang's first English-language recording and Big Sean's musical feature-film debut. A music video of the single, produced and directed by Robby Starbuck, included footage from the film. The Ramones' "I Wanna Be Sedated", OneRepublic's "Something I Need" and Inner Circle's "Bad Boys" are heard in the film but not included in the soundtrack.
