Watch: More Minions Return in Halloween Trailer for 'Despicable Me 2'
The first teaser trailer for Despicable Me 2 gave the Minions the spotlight singing their gibberish version of the Beach Boys' hit Barbara Ann, and now they're still the star of a new Halloween themed teaser for the Universal and Illumination Entertainment sequel. Steve Carell returning as Gru is nowhere to be seen, but the trailer might hint at a villain for the sequel. Otherwise, this simply feels like an animated short you might see before a feature length film. It's still pretty cute and fans of the Minions will not be disappointed as they're operating at full silliness. It's timed right for the season, but we look forward to seeing the story.
Here's the new trailer for Illumination Entertainment's Despicable Me 2 originally from Apple:
Despicable Me 2 is directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud and written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul, who all held the same positions on the original film. Steve Carell is reprising his role as the despicable Gru (along with his three adopted daughters) with Al Pacino voicing his nemesis for the sequel. Plenty of minions will be back and wackier than ever with Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment bringing the film to theaters on July 3rd, 2013 in 3D, just in time for the summer holiday. Good stuff?
