The film is set to be directed by Craig McCracken. The film premiered on May 10, 2013 in Europe, and was theatrically released in the United States on June 28, 2013.


The film is about a new and never-before-seen imaginary friend who came out of the bus. And Mac and Bloo have to find the mysterious imaginary friend.



In July 26, 2006, Craig McCracken said he was pitching an Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends movie. In July 2, 2008, it was reported that Geo Animation Studios has acquired the rights to Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends. Jake Sharratt was originally going to directed the film with Craig McCracken, but Sharratt is already directing World of Jake.

Monster University has now been pushed to June 21, 2013, with Wreck-It Ralph taking its place. The film has now finally pushed to June 28, 2013.
