It is the second film to be produced by Animonsta Studios from sequel of BoBoiBoy: The Movie (2016). It is a standalone sequel to the first season of BoBoiBoy Galaxy. It is co-written by Nizam himself and Anas Abdul Aziz. This is the first film to use settings and characters from BoBoiBoy Galaxy.

It was released simultaneously in 4 countries, including Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, and Singapore on 8 August 2019. The Vietnamese dub version of the film was released in Vietnam on 30 August 2019.[3]

Synopsis[edit]

BoBoiBoy and his friends Yaya, Ying, Gopal, and Fang are 19-year-old teenagers who all have different unique superpowers. BoBoiBoy has seven elemental powers: Fire, Water, Lightning, Wind, Leaf, Earth and Light. Power Spheres are robots that contain powers and are protectors of the galaxy. Together they travel the galactic world in a spaceship to save Power Spheres that are controlled by the evil.

In this film, BoBoiBoy and his friends are being hunted by an ancient villain named Retak’ka who wants to seize BoBoiBoy's elemental powers. He is the original user of BoBoiBoy’s elemental powers and now he seeks to take back his full powers to become the most powerful one and dominate the galaxy. The team must find a way to stop and defeat Retak’ka from taking BoBoiBoy's powers and destroying the Galaxy.

Production[edit]

The director Nizam Razak stated that the process of filmmaking for this second film is faster than the first film and only took one year to be finished. They enforced a 12-month deadline to see if they can make a film without jeopardising the quality or the storyline of the animation.[4] He admitted there is pressure in completing the movie on time but his production team of 100 people managed to do that within that time. They used better technology such as Redshift and comprehensive simulation method[5] even though the cost will be higher to give the best quality to the audience.[6] If the reaction to this film is positive, they plan to make movies consistently, with a new film every one year or every one-and-a-half year.[4]

Monsta targets the film to collect more than the first film (RM15.70 million) as the number of cinemas that show this film is higher. This film collected the biggest-grossing local animation film on its first day, raking in RM1.18 million. It successfully achieved its target by overtaking the first movie after just 8 days, collecting RM15.80 million. In 18 days, the film has collected RM25 million within three weeks. It has overtaken Upin & Ipin: Keris Siamang Tunggal (2019) to be the 4th highest-grossing local film in Malaysia and the highest-grossing animation film in Malaysia, including all local and international animation films, after collecting RM27.70 million for 26 days.
