Megamind vs. The Doom Syndicate picks up in the moments following the events of the 2010 film, teeing up more adventures to come in the series Megamind Rules!

The voice cast includes Keith Ferguson (Robot Chicken, DuckTales) as Megamind, Laura Post (LEGO Marvel Avengers: Code Red) as Roxanne Ritchi, Josh Brener (Silicon Valley, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) as Ol’ Chum, and Maya Aoki Tuttle (Spidey and His Amazing Friends, Destiny 2) as Keiko Morita.

Adam Lambert (American Idol, The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let’s Do the Time Warp Again) voices the character Machiavillain. Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons, who wrote the original film, will executive produce the new film and series alongside Eric Fogel.

The new film and series are a follow-up to the 2010 DreamWorks Animation film, where Megamind goes from being a supervillain and the scourge of Metro City to a superhero who’s learning on the job.

In the film, Megamind’s former villain team, The Doom Syndicate, has returned. Our newly crowned blue hero must now keep up evil appearances until he can assemble his friends (Roxanne, Ol’ Chum, and Keiko) to stop his former evil teammates from launching Metro City to the moon.

Megamind vs. The Doom Syndicate was directed by Eric Fogel from a script by Alan Schoolcraft and Ben Simons. The co-executive producer is JD Ryznar.

In Peacock‘s eight-episode Megamind Rules!, Megamind is a superhero who’s learning on the job. He’ll be bringing the audience along for the ride, as Megamind’s trusty brainbots will be recording everything, making him the world’s first superhero influencer.
