In an update video, Marc stated that questions about Tord's appearance could not be answered; if the answer was yes, then it would be a spoiler, but if the answer was no, then there would be backlash. In July 2016, a new video, "Your Biggest Questions Answered", was uploaded to the channel that "informs" us that Tord's inclusion in the movie is neither true nor false.

Development

Production on the film began as early as April 2013, according to the movie's Facebook page. Marc Lovallo wrote the script with his friends Jonah Good (who was also serving as animator and co-producer at the time) and Radley Catubig over the course of a few months. Then in June 2013, the first official teaser trailer was posted on the film's YouTube channel, consisting of new animated footage and a montage of clips from previous Eddisodes. In the trailer, it said that the movie would be released in 2014.

In August 2013, an update video revealed that Billy Crinion and Tracye Wilcox were brought on as animators.

In September 2013, it was revealed that 10% of the movie was completed. It was also revealed that five music composers and four voice actors had been hired at that point.

In October 2013, it was revealed that Connor Tierney would be voicing Edd in the movie.

In December 2013, it was revealed in an update video that Tracye Wilcox was let go from the project due to lack of communication. But during the same video, it was revealed that Eneko Agudo would be joining the project to take Tracye's place. It was also revealed that Jason Norris, Matthew Plichta, and Tom Stiil were cast to play roles in the film. Jason was revealed to be the voice of Commander Bai, but Matthew and Tom's roles remain unspecified. Finn M.K., Michael Pearson, Chandler Robinson, Noemie Pounder, and Zack Walter were also confirmed to be music composers. In another update video released that month, Jonah confirmed that actors had been cast to play Tom and General McCoy. He also announced that the movie's YouTube channel would start releasing animated shorts to hold people over in between updates and before the movie comes out.

In January 2014, interviews with Billy Crinion and Jonah Good were uploaded to the YouTube channel. The first Eddsworld movie minisode was also uploaded that month, called "Matt is Watching Us."

In February 2014, the minisode "Barn Boys" (based on a comic written by Jonah) was uploaded. In an update video released that same month, Nicolas Ramirez and Scott Wagner were revealed to have been hired as animators for the movie. It was also revealed that Landon Bell would be voicing the film's President of the United States, Dan Escudero would be voicing Tom, and Kevin Horton would be voicing General McCoy.

In March 2014, an update video revealed that Lewis Fakanza, Effren Villanueva and ExplosiveCake were brought on as animators for the movie. James Horsley was also confirmed as the voice of Matt, and Mike Joseph was confirmed as the voice of Private Martin. Billy was also revealed to have been made an associate producer.

In April 2014, an interview with Connor was uploaded.

In May 2014, the minisode "The Mystery of Tom's Eyes" (written and animated by Effren) was uploaded. That same month, the last traditional monthly update video was also released. An interview with Jason was also uploaded.

In 2014, it was announced that Jonah would be leaving the project. Billy was then made a full-on co-producer to take Jonah's place.

In July 2014, a sample of audio from the movie was released featuring Commander Bai being interrogated by General McCoy.

In 2015, Anthony Rees was brought on as an animator. Later he became a co-producer, and replaced Connor as the voice of Edd. Taliesin Charles was also made a co-producer on the film, as well as a co-writer for minisodes. Originally cast as "additional voices", he later took over from Dan as the voice of Tom.

In an update video released in June 2016, it was revealed that Paul ter Voorde was originally intended to be the voice of Paul, but after the release of The End, he already started working on other projects, and was unable to continue the role. So instead, Billy was cast as the voice of Paul.

In November 2016, the crew announced they would be rebranding the project as "The Eddsworld Fan Movie". Their reasoning behind this was to avoid any confusion with the official Eddsworld channel.

In April 2017, the minisode "Best Of Both Worlds" was uploaded. The minisode serves as the debuts of Rees and Charles as Edd and Tom, respectively.

In June 2018, it was announced that Marc Lovallo stepped down as the director, and appointed Jon Lopez (one of the animators for the movie) to take his place.

The Spoon Patrol

On January 26, 2018, Marc Lovallo posted an update video[1]. In the video, at 4:09 in the video, he started an initiative called "Join the Spoon Patrol", where fans wanting involved with the movie submit a spoon drawn, colored and stylized by them.

Lovallo's inspiration for the Spoon Patrol stemmed off of Eddie Bowley drawing a spoon in the background of a scene in "Fun Dead".
