Villamor spent years writing the screenplay. The idea for the character of Maya originated from a five-minute narrative Villamor made as a film student of the University of the Philippines in 1999.

The project is about a girl named Maya whose dream was to climb a tree in their backyard, but her mother would always catch and reprimand her. One day, she finally climbs it and sees a fantastic and she was wishing her mother could also see them.

She further developed the idea into a short story which she wrote while working as a script continuity supervisor for director Joyce Bernal in 2004 to 2005, who gave Villamor the idea to turn the short story into a screenplay after the director caught her writing the short story. Bernal serves as the movie’s Creative Producer.

Villamor cites books by Gabriel Garcia Marquez and Isabel Allende as some of the works that influenced her while writing the story. In the span of more than ten years, Villamor would always return to the screenplay to revise and add ideas as she pleased.

Villamor admitted that the concept of the movie was pitched to many different production companies before Viva Films greenlit the project and allowed Villamor to maintain her original vision for the film.

Villamor sent an earlier version of the script to cinematographer Neil Daza in 2011. In 2018, Villamor again sent the script with the working title “Si Maya, ang Ulan at ang mga Tikbalang” to Daza, who found it easy to say yes to doing the project.
