A replica of the set was built for the scenes of Ginormica wandering the streets of San Francisco, and supervising animator Line Korsgaard Andersen was videotaped walking around it as reference for the animators.
This is the first computer animated film to be directly produced in a stereoscopic 3D format, instead of being converted into 3D after completion.
All the monsters in the film are references to original monsters in movies. Ginormica (Reese Witherspoon) is a reference to Attack of the 50 Foot Woman (1958), B.O.B. (Seth Rogen) is a reference to The Blob (1958), The Missing Link (Will Arnett) is a reference to Creature from the Black Lagoon (1954) (1954), Dr. Cockroach Ph.D. (Hugh Laurie) is a reference to The Fly (1958), and finally Insectosaurus is a reference to Mothra from Mosura (1961).
