Kristen Schaal Josh Gad|Prequel = MYCUN: The Movie}}MYCUN 2 is a cancelled American 3D computer-animated buddy fantasy comedy-adventure crossover film produced by YouTube Red, [MYCUN] Studios, VerniX Animation Studios and Glass Ball Productions. It is the second installment in the MYCUN franchise and the sequel to the 2015 film MYCUN: The Movie, with its director, Michael Wildshill, and writer, Geo G., returning for the film.
Most of the cast from the first film — Ryan Potter, Kristin Chenoweth, Toby Kebbell, Anne Hathaway, Steve Carell, Pierre Coffin, Sachi Matsumoto, Dakota Goyo and Fanning — were going to reprise their roles in the sequel, with the exceptions of Zachary Gordon, Kodi Smit-McPhee and Jodelle Ferland, who were replaced by Jason Drucker, Finn Wolfhard and Cree Cicchino, respectively. They will be joined by Bryce Papenbrook, Kristen Schaal and Josh Gad.
MYCUN 2 was scheduled to be released in theaters on June 8, 2018 in RealD 3D and IMAX 3D by Universal Pictures. However, the film was released straight to DVD/Blu-ray in 2017 due to the first film's poor box office performance.
Following the events of the first film, Hiro Hamada becomes Gabriel Garza's new partner and best friend, and they must defeat Carrie Underwood, who escaped from jail and reunites with Koba to take over the whole world.

On November 3, 2015, Michael Wildshill announced that they were working on a sequel idea. On December 15, 2015, it was announced that a sequel is in development with Wildshill returning as director and Audel LaRoque returning as producer. In March 2016, it was announced that Jason Drucker would voice Gabriel Garza for future media, such as Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 3 and MYCUN 2, replacing Zachary Gordon, whose voice has deepened since reaching adulthood. By April 2016, Darren Lemke had been hired to do rewrites of the script. It was also announced that Blur Animation Workshop would return to provide the additional animation for the film.
On June 12, 2016, the producers announced that Kristin Chenoweth, Anne Hathaway, Steve Carell, Pierre Coffin, Sachi Matsumoto, Dakota Goyo, Dakota Fanning, Ryan Potter, and Toby Kebbell would be reprising their roles in the sequel with Finn Wolfhard and Cree Cicchino replacing Kodi Smit-McPhee and Jodelle Ferland as Norman Babcock and Agatha Prenderghast in this film. In July 2016, Wildshill said that they wanted the film to focus on a relationship between Gabriel Garza and Hiro Hamada other than the rest of the MYCUNs, due to the popularity of Gabriel and Hiro's relationship.
In January 2017, Wildshill said in an interview that they had begun the animation of the film, and that Megan Brown from Gabriel and the Wacky Pack 3 may appear in the film. In February 2017, Geo G. announced that the characters from Yaku Tsuu: Noroi no Game, Ruins, Treo Fiskur, and Pink Sword of the Bibu are confirmed to appear in this film as newcomers to the MYCUNs. In March 2017, it was reported that Bryce Papenbrook, Kristen Schaal and Josh Gad had joined the cast of the film. In addition, Wildshill also announced that the new characters from War for the Planet of the Apes would appear in this film, as well as new original apes created for the film. A teaser to the film was attached to Universal's Gabriel Garza 3 on March 3, 2017.
In April 2017, it was announced that the main character from the short film Paint would appear in MYCUN 2. On May 17, 2017, a huge new voice cast were announced, including Lee Ross and Richard King returning as Grey and Stone.
In December 2015, Universal scheduled the sequel to be released on December 14, 2018. In October 2016, the release date was moved up to December 7, 2018, with Universal's Mortal Engines taking its date. On February 26, 2017, the release date was pushed back to June 8, 2018, opening against Ocean's Eight and Bumblebee. According to Geo G., he stated that the reasoning was due to wanting to put MYCUN 2 on a summer release schedule, with DVD and Blu-ray sales occurring during the holiday shopping season.
