The Real Reason Will Ferrell Didn’t Return For Megamind 2

The voice cast of the original “Megamind” featured heavyweights in the form of Will Ferrell, Jonah Hill, Tina Fey, and Brad Pitt, none of whom have been brought back for new offerings “Megamind vs. the Doom Syndicate” and the companion series “Megamind Rules!” This isn’t the first controversial thing that DreamWorks has done, but seeing as the “Megamind” sequel and series are streaming offerings, it’s fair to suggest that DreamWorks possibly elected to not bring the A-listers back for budgetary reasons. 

While speaking with Screen Rant, “Megamind 2” director Eric Fogel opened up about DreamWork’s philosophy surrounding recasting voice actors, shedding light on the production process for Megamind’s sophomore outing. “There’s a term that DreamWorks likes to use when trying to find these voice actors to replace people from the movies. They don’t like to call them soundalikes, they call them feelalikes,” Fogel said, adding that Keith Ferguson was able to build on Megamind’s character and personality.

The efforts of “Megamind 2” can be appreciated, but the film has largely been maligned by audiences. “Megamind 2” has been obliterated by fans on Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb, leading to poor user reviews, with many criticizing the sequel’s production value, animation style, shoddy narrative, and lack of returning voice actors. For fans, “Megamind 2” is nothing short of disappointing, as it fails to build upon the legacy created by the first picture. And without Ferrell’s talents, it seems like “Megamind 2” was dead on arrival the moment it debuted on Peacock.
