In 2017, after the release of Blitzivan: 20 Years Later, writer and director Max Axis has stated that he'll take a break from making Blitzivan films in order to write new and original films, which was the reason on why Matt Lee wrote all future Blitzivan films after 20 Years Later, though Akira Hisahi did co-write the films, and that both Jun'ya Ohta and Max Axis returned to write Blitzivan X Touhou Project 2.
In August of 2019, Silver Bullet Pictures announced that Max Axis and Akira Hashi would reunite to direct the next film in the Blitzivan film series, and revealed the film's official title Blitzivan: Rebirth. Fans speculated that the film was a reboot in the series, upsetting many fans, but Max quickly responded on social media that, while the film's title does sound like it's a reboot, the film would follow all the events that happend after Blitzivan X Touhou Project 2.
Principal photography began on June 2018 and finished in August 2019.
The film's visual effects will be provided by Fuse Special Effects and Superview, making it the first film in the Blitzivan film series not to have Zecter Media handle the visual effects. Max Axis stated that the film will still have practical effects and in-camera stunts.
Hiroshi Naoyuki was confirmed to return to compose the film's soundtrack, while the Houkish electric duo Tennjo Duo Project was also confirmed to composed most of the insert themes for the film.
Blitzivan: Rebirth was to be released on July 2020 in theaters in El Kadsre, but it was instead going to be released as El TV Player exclusive due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
