The Dreamworks tag is literally the SUGAR HONEY ICE TEA joke, rise of the brave tangled oh my god ung, lol DREAMWORKS FACE JOKE HAHA TROLLED, the boy on the moon being the last Dreamworks movie, older Hiccup being hot, Toothless being cute, Megamind screaming “NOTICE ME DREAMWORKS”, the DM Minions, mistagged movies from other companies in general, and Jack Frost gifs until the end of time
What seems to be everyone’s opinion of the movie so far
If I can sum it up in a few words: optimistically cautious. That’s pretty good! It wasn’t the best “first trailer” (still a bit riled that the international trailer wasn’t released as the first), so to see mostly positive reaction is pretty good. Very sad to see some people pressing harsh judgment on the movie so early, especially when the trailer wasn’t all too revealing about the movie. (Cartoon Brew, I’m looking at you!)
I created this blog last year, but nothing prepared me for how emotionally draining running it would be…pressing on despite the hate!
Personally I’m not a huge fan of Dreamworks making movies of pre-existing franchises when they have made excellent characters and storylines of their own. As you know, they are making a movie about Troll dolls next… it just feels like desperation, lazy writing, etc.
It’s basically going to kill the company if they keep it up. Disney is successful because it takes its characters and worlds seriously and keeps them alive generations later for people to keep enjoying them, coming back, and trusting the company with new materials— Dreamworks can’t stand to hold onto things past the box office sales ending *cough*Megamind*cough*.
I have hope for Peabody and Sherman merely because a very important person in the Megamind team is working on it and very excited for it. I’m unfortunately not a fan of Rocky and Bullwinkle all that much, it just never clicked with me as a kid? I’d just rather have a Megamind 2. I know that’s me being a giant whiner but I’m terrified the company is going to go under before that can even have a chance of happening. ;;
But because it is Dreamworks (and not Turbo) I will happily throw my money at it to support the company even if I have very little interest in the movie itself. They proved me wrong with Megamind and its awful advertising, so I’m hopeful.
Dreamworks hurry up and drop the English trailer
and make a new Megamind short while you’re at it we’ve been here three years :|
I’m not going to sugarcoat this; You guys better click that link and REBLOG IT, I’m serious. Don’t complain about how bad it’s doing right now or much you want it to do well or how much you want a sequel if youre not willing to help Dreamworks spread it and promote it when they’re TRYING to work with us!
I’ve been in the Megamind fandom for TWO YEARS and have watched it crumble from top of the box office for the first 2 weeks and 3 planned sequels, more shorts, and a cartoon series to ZILCH NOTHING NADDA GONE DREAMWORKS STOPPED GIVING A SHIT THE CHARACTERS ARE BASICALLY DEAD. I have stood here and tried DESPERATELY with other fans to get Dreamworks to care about Megamind and it’s a terrible thing to go through when you love something and believe in it as much as I do. We didn’t GET a warning and we had the truth hidden from us for months, believing for at least half a year that there was a sequel in the works. We acted way too late when our numbers were shrinking and the hype was over. I am telling you ROTG fans from another Dreamworks fandom that has been burned VERY BADLY to GET OUT THERE AND GET LOUD before it’s too late. Dreamworks doesn’t give two shits about DVD and iTunes sales, even if the Megamind DVD did way better than they expected (as I’ve been told from within DWA), they still left it to die. YOU HAVE ONLY NOW TO MAKE THIS WORK. I AM WARNING YOU. DREAMWORKS DOES NOT CARE BEYOND BOX OFFICE SALES. THERE IS NO SUGAR COATING THIS. PANIC TIME IS NOW.
This is TUMBLR, we are the people who vote-bomb FOX and CNN when they’re homophobes, we’re the ones who signal boost injured animals and kids who need donations and get them well over their donation request amount. WE ARE NOT POWERLESS, you guys. But you HAVE to act. If you want this, ACT LIKE IT. Tell everyone. Take friends to see it. Write to the local newspapers and newstations and ask them to talk about it because it deserves the recognition. Call your radio stations. Ask your favorite bloggers to post about it. Ask celebrities to tweet about it. Get together with the local ROTG fans and work together! DO NOT WAIT. YOU DO NOT HAVE TIME.
If you want ROTG to do well, we gotta work together and help Dreamworks out because they have the advertising skills of a wet rock and rely way too much on word-of-mouth. If you don’t do this, it will be shit like Afro Circus all over again for the next however many years and the poor artists at DWA will have to put up with drawing/animating that shit for another 3+ years because the general people are telling them that THAT is what they want to see from them.
I believe in you, Tumblr. Please don’t let what happened to the Megamind franchise happen to Rise of the Guardians. PLEASE.
People are still reblogging this like a year later. ;_; And not a word other than “no” for both ROTG and Megamind.
Thanks for getting the word out about Megamind at least.
WHY ARE ANIMATED WOMEN ALWAYS SHOWN WITH FUNKY OVAL EYES AND THE GUYS HAVE PERFECTLY NORMAL CARTOONY ROUND EYES
I noticed this in the Frozen gifs going around and its even worse there. Seriously why the hell is this a thing with 3D models someone explain
[types “Megamind” in tag search rather than clicking the tracked tag]

If Tumblr changes the whole fucking thing, its back to the LiveJournal community since we won’t exactly be able to use the fucking tag to communicate.
This was the question about Tumblr someone actually asked at the DreamWorks panel.
Everyone laughed?! Now that’s just really hurtful. I know if I was that person who asked, I would feel mortified and be really down for the rest of the day because I was put in the limelight (in a bad way) in a major event. I think this person was actually very brave to ask that.
Some people have just gotta be the humiliated oneeees. It’s the circle of life. they’ll probably go home and cry cause they’re embarrassed, that’s sad…poor person. Hopefully they speak their mind again, maybe not, opinions are dangerous. Turn back nowz.
Aw man this makes think twice about asking DreamWorks people questions in public if I ever get to go Comic-Con… I guess I’ll just keep my questions to myself… meep
Just to clarify things. I don’t think they’re laughing at the idea of The Big Four or at the girl. It’s the thought of collaborating with Disney. She was really brave asking that question and I would feel mortified too. But I don’t think they mean any harm.
I think that sometimes, you just have to choose your battle, and asking Dreamworks to collaborate with Disney and Pixar is kind of touchy since there is this concurrence between them. Sure we can dream. We would have never thought that Sega and Nintendo would team up someday to come up with a game, and they delivered us trice a Mario & Sonic at the Olympic games. So maybe one day, but to have the big four all together. Breaking the laws of time and space wouldn’t very good for them. We have to remember, those are family movies, not fan movies. They want to reach as much people as possible, and we’re a minority here.
I think this person was only semi-serious about this. As cool as the movie would be to see, I don’t think anyone in the RotBTD fandom thinks it will actually happen. She did it to see what their reaction would be. And if they can go to Comic-Con and ask a funny question like that, then that’s really brave of them and I’m glad they did it.
That was my friend who did that and she was actually cosplaying as Jack frost when she asked that question. I wasn’t there but she told me about it. and it’s not as bad as everyone things. One of the people from dream works actually said that they ship Hiccup and Rapunzel.
Oh my gods, really? XD
The crowd wasn’t laughing at the person who asked the question, or her question for that matter. We were laughing at the very deadpan way Bill Damaschke said, “No”, when asked about the possibility of a collaboration. I did think it was pretty awesome that Dean knew exactly who the “Big Four” are. :)
+1 the above
It was a lighthearted but very clear “no” with a bit of a gracious smile at the end. It’s a given to those in the industry that a DWA/Disney collaboration is pretty much out of the question with the way things are now. (ahem competitors) But the dedication and creativity of the fans is heartwarming. :) The audience laugh wasn’t at anyone’s expense.
I really like that there is a lot more to this story. I admit though, my experiences talking to DWA employees has been… rather eh. Most of the time I’m either ignored, talked down to, and very rarely treated nicely. It makes it that much more difficult to speak up about potential issues that could come back to bite the company.
(Hi my name is Filthy and I care too much about a company that doesn’t seem to like me at all.)
While I’m not that into the “Big Four” as a crossover, I do think Dreamworks would benefit from crossing over their own stories. I could see Megamind and ROTG melding together really well, if the story was told right. They seem to be in the same universe (Megamind being in Michigan in modern-ish times, as ROTG seems to be similar in terms of technology and time periods) Unfortunately, I don’t know if enough people saw ROTG for it to sell. Megamind would sell, ROTG… augh. It’s a shame because its a really good movie.
But yeah, expecting Katzenberg to work with Disney in any way shape or form is pretty unrealistic. I think they negotiate movie release dates to not overlap, but beyond that it would take someone else being in Katzenberg’s chair to ever raise the likelihood of a company-crossover.
SMASH THOSE LIKE COMMENT AND SHARE BUTTONS LIKE THE FIST OF AN ANGRY GOD
BREL SENT ME THIS AND I AM DEAD

[turns ROTG calendar to October]
Have you seen the new Giant Fire Breathing Toothless? It actually breathes blue “fire” made of water vapor! In daylight it looks like steam, then turn out the lights and it looks like the Night Fury’s plasma flame. Will you be getting this for your favorite dragon trainer …or for yourself?
The adult inside of me says “buy this”
Dreamworks… actually advertising… merchandise….?! DIVIDE BY ZERO ERROR
