Dreamworks Animation “ALMOST HOME”

Their little stubby legs! I think I love them ;u;




I kind of want to see Peabody and Sherman tomorrow because Dreamworks

but I also don’t want to see it because they ignore Megamind 24/7

then again I have absolutely no interest in Peabody and Sherman

but I also thought Megamind looked like a stupid movie

unngghHHHH




kreaturette:

Dreamworks came to my school tonight. I’m very happy right now for a few reasons:

  1. Because Dreamworks.
  2. Because Megamind was included in the slideshow.
  3. Because I met someone who is also in the Megamind fandom.

Reasons why I am saddened:

  1. Pretty much a solid no for a Megamind sequel. (But I still hold on to hope nonetheless.)

Why are they so weird about Megamind aaauuughghhh




regularcherry asked:
Megamind looks so OLD with those glasses but he's adorable. by the way, where is that pic from? do you know where i can get the comics?

It’s from comic book #3 of the series! I would highly recommend just going and getting the Mega Collection, it’s all four comic books crammed in one easy-to-get package XD

There’s also the Prequel Comic but it’s free on both the BluRay and the official website. :3

Dreamworks was really starting to make a name for itself with How to Train your Dragon and Megamind and really showed that the studio could produce more than just comedy films aimed at the lowest common denominator. Then Turbo happened and now Shrek 5 is probably going to happen.

RIse of the Guardians was great too, and The Croods. Not as great as HTTYD and definitely not as great as Megamind (imo) and the last thing we need from Dreamworks is another fart joke movie.

It blows me away how this company can be so lovey at representation and handling unpopular things (racism/bullying with Megamind, Eep being a rounder girl in The Croods, multiple cross-species couples, Tulio and Miguel being bisexual, The Prince of Egypt being carefully handled as to not be offensive at all, the “ha ha fat” jokes being toned down to almost nonexistence in Kung Fu Panda 2, strong female characters that aren’t sexualized and are often flat chested (Tigress, Toothiana), Roxanne literally being the only character pulling the story along and fighting back in Megamind, Minion cross-dressing and Megamind telling him he looks fantastic and ITS ACTUALLY NOT A JOKE IT JUST HAPPENS AND ITS CUTE, Megamind wearing makeup/eyeliner and rocking it (and also coming off pretty bi himself imo), Hal only being a villain because he’s a Nice Guy being essentially “friend zoned” by Roxanne, Hiccup losing a leg and rocking his recovery from it in the sequel, the POC that will be the main character in “Home”, and I can go on and on and on but you get it) and then odd stuff that doesn’t exactly fit (Puss in Boots, Turbo, the Troll doll movie, Madagascar, Shrek)

Shrek was good. Shrek was really really good. It was the first big call-out of Disney’s offensive habits. But 3 was uncomfortable and 4 was an awkward alternate universe movie. Literally the only thing saving that movie was warrior Fiona. It’s to the point that even though the series has been good, they’re just beating a dead horse that they can’t do much else with now that there’s the inclusion of so many kids.

Like omg please make a Megamind sequel and please don’t let him have kids and just be consistent with the first film and keep tackling real life issues that nobody else has the garbanzos to do — that’s really all we ask and all you have to do to not anger the fandom completely. That’s really it.




WILL FERRELL: Hey I was just the villain in the Lego Movie doing the exact same character voice as Megamind
JONAH HILL: Hey I was totally another nerdy obsessive superhero in it too
THE LEGO MOVIE: Hey don't mind me I'm just over here being awesome and making tons of money and already getting a sequel
JEFFREY KATZENBERG: hmmm you know this gives me an idea...
MEGAMIND FANDOM: ?????
WILL FERRELL: ?????
JEFFREY KATZENBERG: Lets do a Shrek 5!!
MEGAMIND FANDOM: YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME



SOMEONE AT DREAMWORKS PLEASE INFORM KATZENBERG THAT SHREK IS NOT A FRANCHISE THAT AGES LIKE FINE WINE ITS A FRANCHISE THAT MAKES PEOPLE GROAN WHEN THEY HEAR OF YET ANOTHER SEQUEL
ALSO THE MEGAMIND FANDOM IS STILL ALIVE AND ITS BEEN OVER THREE YEARS NOW HINT NUDGE KICK

mrpeabodyandsherman:

Not Peabody related, but the idea of a fifth Shrek film terrifies me. I would much rather prefer something else done with the franchise, or a focus on a PIB sequel, or just trying to develop other franchises, period.

NO NO NO NO NO

KATZENBERG NO

THAT IS A BAD IDEA

AND NOT THE KIND OF BAD THAT YOU THINK IS GOOD

IN YOUR BAD PERCEPTION

FROM A FANS PERCEPTION ITS JUST PLAIN BAD

also

"We like to let them have a little bit of time to rest, but I think you can be confident that we’ll have another chapter in the Shrek series. We’re not finished, and more importantly, neither is he."

WHAT ABOUT THE THREE OTHER MEGAMIND SCRIPTS SITTING ON YOUR SHELF

THAT THE FANDOM HAS BEEN SCREAMING FOR FOR OVER THREE YEARS

hmmmmm??

HMMMMMMMM???




Shoutout to BOTH Will Ferrell and Jonah Hill for playing exactly like both Megamind and Hal Stewart while voicing for Lord Business and Green Lantern in the Lego Movie IN THE MOST GLORIOUS ACT OF REBELLION AGAINST DREAMWORKS’ TERRIBLE DECISIONS THAT I’VE EVER SEEN.
Seeing that the voice actors even have our backs on the lack of more Megamind content is just the most perfect thing we never knew we wanted and THANK YOU.

regularcherry asked:
omg i can't believe that all that stuff you wrote before is HEADCANON. I just thought you elder fans were better informed but IT'S ALL HEADCANON AND IT'S BEAUTIFUL. It really is, because I swear all the fanfics I've read so far have them; it's like a fandom agreement or something. Except for the name part. why john doe by the way?

Yes! It just seems that after a while everyone began to go with the same headcanons on their own~! It just happened naturally. It’s… adorable!

John Doe is a “default” name given to American citizens who are found and have no other identification. As wikipedia is putting it: "The names "John Doe" for males, "Jane Doe" or "Jane Roe" for females, or "Jonnie Doe" and "Janie Doe" for children, or just "Doe" non-gender-specifically are used as placeholder names for a party whose true identity is unknown or must be withheld in a legal action, case, or discussion.”

And since Metro City is in Michigan, in the United States, that would probably be the name he’d be given.

I can assume that once he went the villainy route he probably illegally changed his name to just “Megamind” to be an asshole. That’s how I set it up for my roleplay account, anyways.

/Is a bottomless pit of mostly useless fandom headcanons




kris0ten:

For fun! It didn’t seem right to only put guys, so I put both. Pick your preference! (To clarify, you’re supposed to pick a valentine based on your gender of interest. You go on the date with them. The other gender can be your BFF instead)

I wanna know what you get!

YOU INCLUDED MEGAMIND 

BLESS THIS POST




I am dying at all the Lego Movie reviews calling out Will Ferrell on doing “his Megamind voice” afjhsdgh

"Lord Business (Will Ferrell, doing a mixture of Mugatu and Megamind)"

"The experience opens with a bombastic, but not-entirely-serious confrontation between a power-hungry Lego figure named Lord Business (Will Ferrell, back in evil-with-a-wink “Megamind” mode) and good wizard Vitruvius (Morgan Freeman, poking fun at every voice-of-authority figure he’s ever played) for a force that gives whoever possesses it control of the entire Lego universe."

"The chief party animal, of course, is Ferrell. Overplaying his character, Lord Business, like a distant cousin of his dim-witted “Megamind” villain, the actor once again gets tons of comic mileage out of his patented silly grandiloquence. (“Nail polish remover” — a deadly weapon if you’re a plastic toy and your face has been painted on — becomes, in Ferrell’s threatening delivery, the “poe-leash remover of nah-eel.”)"

"Lord Business is funny even if it is Will Ferrell just doing his Megamind voice."

"Will Ferrell pulls out his Megamind persona to create a fun villain (his mispronunciation gags still work, surprisingly enough)"

I DIDN’T EVEN CATCH THE MISPRONUNCIATIONS BEING A NOD TO MEGAMIND UNTIL NOW I AM DYING AND I COULDN’T POSSIBLY LOVE WILL ANY MORE THAN I DO NOW




MEGAMIND FANDOM CRASH COURSE

aka the “I’m just walking into this fandom after the movie has been out for three years what is going on and why is there a bottle of lube on the counter and why is there fire everywhere” course

#1) There really are no rules aside from not being a dick to other fandom members. We’re all adults and we don’t play that bullying game yo’.

#2) Speaking of all adults, if you’re not 18+ please tell us immediately because we don’t want to put you in an awful position. But the majority of the fandom are in their mid twenties or older and it usually has been, so yeah adults all up in this fandom. What are kids movies nobody knowwws

#3) There is no sequel and if someone says otherwise they are most certainly lying. They WERE working on a sequel, but it was dropped after a lot of hush-hush bullshit that led the fandom on too long and confused us all. (There are apparently 3 sequel scripts sitting around somewhere at DWA but I cannot confirm the source of this, but the likelihood of this being true is very high.)

#4) When you see Megamind animated in a white suit, that is from the 13min short “Megamind: The Button of Doom”, which was on some versions of the BluRay and the DVD double-packs, and is now on Netflix or as a download on iTunes.

#5) The Doom Syndicate are a group of side-villains that were pulled rather late in the production of the movie. They can still be seen in the Art of Megamind book (in color storyboards even!), and in the video games.

#6) Popular Doom Syndicate characters in the fandom include but aren’t limited to: Hot Flash, Psycho Delic, and Lady Doppler.

#7) Vice Versa is an OC, one of the very first in this fandom— which took off immediately and burst into ridiculous amounts of fan-material. He is a VERY evil clone of Megamind. 

#8) There is a roleplay game going on here loosely named “Tumblr Metrocity”. It actually kind of makes sense despite being disorganized from the very start and established without any rules. (That’s just kind of how this fandom rolls!) Metro City is essentially in the middle of an odd dimensional rift and characters come and go. This means alternate universes, alternate types of Megaminds (hero, villain, genderbent, doing their own thing, etc etc) and various OCs. It’s been going on for two years now. (I play a villain Megamind that was as-canon-as-possible up until the timeline events of the movie came and passed, making him still-evil and very conflicted by his destiny… It makes sense to us, I swear!)

#9) You should probably get comfortable with tentacles if you’re not already

#10) In fact this fandom has a lot of kinkage so prepare yoursellf

#11) We don’t kinkshame or have shipping wars here. No really. I’m serious. We don’t give a shit. Pair up who you want we’ll probably read it and ask for seconds

#12) “The Great Nipple Debate” was an old fandom joke-war on the assumption that Megamind has a nip-slip with the black mamba torn up. This was when it was still in theaters and all we had were crappy camvids. Some people think it’s a nipple, others don’t, but it doesn’t matter, do your own thing.

#13) The brainbots’ sounds are written out as “bowg bowg bowg”.

#14) Metro Man’s name is “Wayne Scott” to the fandom. This was found by Metro Man’s adoptive parents being the Scott’s, and the name Wayne being used for him in the original script. It’s another superhero joke, har har.

#15) The original script is titled “Mastermind” and was originally intended to be a much more adult live-action movie. (Megamind makes reference to his own balls.)

#16) That script also mentions Megamind’s real name is “Bubsy” and the entire fandom has appeared to collectively “lol how about no” at that. (The original writers made a decision, and we’ve elected to ignore it…) His most logical “real” name would be John Doe, with the possible nickname “Blue” while growing up. This is merely a common headcanon among fans, but go with what you wish obviously!

#17) Megamind’s birthday is somewhere in December, fandom guesses. A lot of us think it’s December 17th. He would be a Sagittarius.

#18) The characters have no “official” ages outside of Hal, however Megamind, Minion, and Metro Man have all been confirmed to be somewhere in their mid-30s or 40s.

#19) The LiveJournal Community was the original fandom homebase, before Tumblr became a thing. The fandom had been ridiculously active had and once passed 1,000 members, made near 7,000 posts, and has accumulated around 105,000 comments. The community has slowed down to nothing and most of the fandom has migrated here. Although its scattered, we all keep in touch via the “Megamind” tag.

#20) There is an AIM chat, ask a fan to join :3

#21) Recommended official materials would be the Art of Megamind book and the comics. There is the prequel comic for free on the main movie website. “The Mega Collection” includes all four of the other comics that were released. Approach the comics with caution, as there is a lot of inconsistency and “lol wut” among them. The video games aren’t TOO bad, but still not great. If you want to see the Doom Syndicate in action, that would be where to find them.

#22) There are various video games: the PS3/XBOX360 are the same game, the PSP/DS are the same, and the WII one is its own (and really bad, except you can play as Hot Flash which is awesome). There’s also a mobile game for some phones but I couldn’t tell you what it’s like at all.

#23) Popular headcanons, which you can take or leave of course, are: Minion always cooks and cleans, Megamind can’t cook at all and can essentially burn salad, Megamind is a sugar junkie, the brainbots are essentially dogs, Megamind’s home planet was heavily aquatic and thus he is very naturally good at swimming and holding his breath underwater, Megamind can see in the dark, Metro Man is gay, Megamind is bisexual, Megamind has been kidnapping Roxanne for many many years prior to the movie, Roxanne and him hump like bunnies the end

#24) There are a lot of lies being thrown around within Dreamworks and a few involve the apparent need to fire many of the employees after the box office failure of Rise of the Guardians and the giant hit the company took from it. About half a year later Katzenberg was called out on trying to pay $75mil for 3 more Breaking Bad episodes. That’s over half of the budget for Megamind, and was not even contributing to the company itself. And on the subject of “wtf”, Megamind has been almost entirely wiped from their advertising materials and websites, as if being swept under the rug… possibly in hopes the fandom will shut up (and no, it hasn’t actually worked.) But that’s just my personal speculation. I am a very opinionated fan.

#25) Turbo was made instead of Megamind 2. Just let that sink in. (Turbo was also admitted to be a joke pitch that won a contest within the company.)

#26) DashCon Megamind is a fandom get-together finally happening at this year’s DashCon near Chicago this summer. We already have hotel rooms booked for it and many members are confirmed to be showing up. If you are interested and are a known fandom member, get in touch with dani-kin.

I will probably update this at some point because I’m sure I’ll need to edit it with more things or edit typos or whatever, but right now I’m tired so here you go, Merry Buttmas.

Ps. I am a super opinionated asshole, news at eleven




daddykinkcapaldi asked:

Shoutout to Will Ferrell for making absolutely no attempt to not sound like Megamind during his voice role as the villain in the Lego Movie
