The movie was originally in development with Disney back in 1997 but was stalled due to the fact that the VFX at the time was not good enough.

Understanding Georgia Film Tax Credit:
A state tax credit was signed into law in 2008 giving productions up to a 30 percent tax break by filming in Georgia. This incentive was enough to convince Hollywood producers to film in Georgia.
Big productions such as The Hunger Games, The Walking Dead and Divergent helped boost Georgia’s film industry. In fact, small cities are now being used as filming locations. Producers are searching and finding small towns across Georgia to film their TV shows. The small town of Senoia, Georgia has transformed since The Walking Dead set up location in the small town.
So what’s next? In November, Pinewood studios announced they will be doubling the size of their studios, expanding the Georgia Film Industry, making it one of the biggest studios in the United States
