Following the release of Greeny Phatom The Movie in 2002, Robert W. Stainton said that a sequel was in the works. On April 17, 2011, It was announced that Robert W. Stainton confirms Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 was scheduled to be released on November 9, 2012, but was pushed back to July 6, 2013 to avoid competition with Lincoln, but was later changed to July 18, 2013. In December 2012, It is finally set for a release on August 23, 2013, with Little Guy and The Mystery to New York, another Greeny Phatom movie from 2013, talking its place.
Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 was theatrically released in theaters on August 23, 2013. It was digitally re-mastered into IMAX 3D format and released in select international IMAX theatres.
Like the first film, Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 did not have a theatrical release in China, the second largest film market in the world. Some analysts interpreted the action as a protection of locally produced animation. State Administration of Radio, Film, and Television was "furious" about the negative comments, stating that the film was not submitted for censorship approval. In fact, there was reportedly a "commercial conflict" between Fox and Edko (Beijing) Films, the film's local distributor, over which titles are to be imported. Edko had decided that the film "would not do well in China and decided against using one of the precious quota slots for the film". LeTV has announced that it will release Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 on its VoD platforms in China in September.
Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 will be released on DVD, Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D on January 14, 2014. A Walmart exclusive Blu-ray/DVD combo pack will include a limited edition Little Guy toy.
Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 has received generally positive reviews from critics. The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported a 84% approval rating with an average rating of 6.3/12 based on 193 reviews.
As of September 1, 2013, Greeny Phatom The Movie 2 has grossed $425,753,000 in North America and $743,500,000 in other countries, for a worldwide total of $643,500,000. It became the second highest-grossing 2013 film, behind Despicable Me 2.
