Initially, the film was going to be produced by Disney Feature Animation, but was shut down by its new chief, John Lasseter, after the Pixar acquisition. Miramax Films picked up the project and guided its production until the division closed down. The film will now be released under the Touchstone Pictures banner on February 11, 2011, being Touchstone's first animated film since 1993's The Nightmare Before Christmas.

The film will be distributed in the UK and Canada by E1 Entertainment[2], and the film will be released in 3D. The film's soundtrack will be provided by Elton John[3] and James Newton Howard. John also presented 10 minutes of the film at the Cannes Film Festival.[4] The film's script was written by Rob Sprackling and John R. Smith, with revisions by Kevin Cecil, Andy Riley and Mark Burton.[5] The film will be directed by Kelly Asbury.
