Despicable Me 2 Trailer

After Despicable Me 2 teased us months ago with the minions singing an off-key rendition of Barbara Ann, [1] the little yellow guys take the spotlight once again in a Halloween-themed trailer, released yesterday.

In the trailer one of the minions tucks one of Gru’s (Steve Carell) daughters into bed while singing a lullaby. As it decides what to do to pass the time, it and a fellow minion hear some strange noises coming from outside. They come to find out that it was nothing at all, but by the end of the trailer, three minions go missing and the song Save Me is heard. While it has been confirmed that these little yellow troublemakers are getting a movie of their own, it seems that the sequel will be focused on the kidnapping of these minions.

Along with Steve Carell returning as the voice of Gru, Despicable Me 2 includes the voices of Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong, and Al Pacino. Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud return to direct the sequel, which premieres on July 3, 2013.
