Development

On September 2010, James posted a video online telling the fans that a feature film based on the series is planned and that a script had been in the works ever since 2007. However he stated that the film will take a while to make since pre-production had not yet started and that he was still going to make AVGN episodes for some time. He also stated that the film would not be a "two hour game review".

At the end of Episode 101, it was confirmed that the Atari 2600 game E.T. would be reviewed in the movie in some form.

Pre-Production

After Episode 101, James stated the episodes would still continue to be made despite the production of the film. However he stated that their will be short, and simple episodes. He did, however, eventually stop. Starting around Summer to Fall 2011, Auditions for roles for the movie around the United States began and were completed.

Fund Raising

There were several fund rasing campaigns during the film's pre-production including one one the fundraising website; Indi-GoGo. Rolfe set a target on the site for $75,000 of fan donations, but by the end of the fundraiser over $325,000 had been donated. Rolfe later stated that he thought the film could now be enitely fan-funded.
