Steve Carell Sets Up the Plot of 'Despicable Me 2' in New Featurette
Independence Day is just around the corner for Americans, and the holiday weekend preceding or following it usually turns out to be one of the biggest of the summer. This season it will be the western adventure The Lone Ranger fighting for #1 with Universal and Illumination Entertainment's animated sequel Despicable Me 2. The little yellow minions are a hit with the little tykes, and families have really taken to Steve Carell's loveable super villain Gru and his adopted daughters. Now Carell takes the spotlight in a new featurette for the film where he breaks down the film's plot. We also catch a glimpse of Eduardo (voiced by Benjamin Bratt at the last minute), the new super-criminal causing problems for The Anti-Villain League.
Here's the featurette for Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud's Despicable Me 2 from the film's YouTube:
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?
