Genndy Tartakovsky, the director of the film, commented in October 2012, about the possibility of the sequel: "Everyone is talking about it, but we haven't started writing it. There are a lot of fun ideas we could totally play with. It's a ripe world." On November 9, 2012, it was announced that a sequel has been greenlit, and is scheduled for release on September 25, 2015. On March 12, 2014, it was announced Tartakovsky will return to direct the sequel, even though he originally was too busy due to his developing an adaptation of Popeye.
