Development

In 2007, Geo G. was pitched to develop a movie called Wild Creatures, set in a planet of creatures. Years later, Universal Pictures announced on a official press release that Geo is directing and writing a comedy-adventure animated film about creatures with a working title The Untitled Movie About A Weird Planet from Geo LTD. Animation. The film is animated by Blur Animation Workshop, is scheduled for a 2017 release. Teenage actor Robbie Daymond was reportedly in talks to voice a character in the film.

In May 2015, it was revealed that Charles Zembillas, who previously designed early concept art for games such as Crash Bandicoot, Jak and Daxter: The Precursor Legacy, and Spyro the Dragon, had been added as the co-director of the film. In addition, the film's title was revealed as Geo G's Imaginary Animals. It was later retitled Imaginary Animals. By January 23, 2016, Glass Ball Productions had agreed to co-finance the film, and provided about 20% of the budget.

Judging by the film's theme, Geo G. described the film as "Avatar meets Pokémon or Dr. Seuss."
