Man of Action, who created the Ben 10 franchise, is directing the film, alongside Brad Bird, Jay Oliva and Lauren Montgomery and Sam Register, Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, Brian A. Miller, Allison Abbate and Donna Smith are going to be producing the film. A month later, the film's title and teaser poster debuted, and it was announced that Liam O'Brien and Adam Wylie had joined the cast. The film marks the twelfth time a theatrical Cartoon Network film is produced by Warner Bros. Animation, instead of Warner Animation Group since the group's formation in 2013.

On December 10, 2018, it was announced that musician David McCallum and singer Zendaya were part of the cast, as Professor Paradox and Kai Green, respectively, with Jason Marsden and Roger Craig Smith revealed as Max Tennyson (17 Years Earlier) and Ben 10,000 the same day.

Development

Warner Bros. Animation had already begun the process of starting development of movies with budgets of around $100 million.

Animation's in-name only division), Cartoon Network and Turner Entertainment (also both Time-Warner divisions) among others and included The FlintstonesThe JetsonsScooby-DooSamurai JackAdventure Time, Cow and Chicken, and more, of course, Codename: Kids Next Door. Cartoon Network had been approaching the original crew from the television series to make a high-profile, animated theatrical feature-length film adaptation and had long wanted to partner with Warner Bros. Pictures to release a Ben 10 film given the network's extraordinary legacy in the world of animation, including some of the most enduring characters on cable television history.

Creator Man of Action agreed to make a feature film version of the show with the promise it would be the first of a planned trilogy. During development stages of the film, the writer collective, alongside Brad Bird, Jay Oliva and Lauren Montgomery and their producers Sam Register, Bruce Timm, Alan Burnett, Brian A. Miller, Allison Abbate and Donna Smith intended to revisit some of the greatest films of the time, with Scarface and The Dark Knight having the core inspirations for the film.
