Why Elf, Barbie & The Lego Movie Exist In The Same Universe, According To TikTok

Since we’re enjoying a little speculation, why not speculate a little bit more? Let’s pretend that Will Ferrell was totally on board to give Buddy the Elf his full story arc in the same way that Mark Ruffalo gave the Incredible Hulk an MCU “trilogy” via the backdoor in other properties. It would make Ferrell’s reaction to the official attempt at an “Elf 2” even funnier. 

During a 2021 interview with the Hollywood Reporter, Ferrell admitted to turning down a sequel to the film that made his career because he disliked the script provided. “I would have had to promote the movie from an honest place, which would’ve been, like, ‘Oh no, it’s not good. I just couldn’t turn down that much money,'” said Ferrell. “And I thought, ‘Can I actually say those words? I don’t think I can, so I guess I can’t do the movie.'”

For Ivan Mars’ TikTok theory to work, then Ferrell needs to believe that connecting “Elf” to “The Lego Movie” to “Barbie” is a better idea than rehashing his first Christmas film. And that just seems like a lot of emotional and physical labor for someone who signed on for “Holmes & Watson.”
