Illumination Entertainment have released the first trailer for their upcoming animated sequel Despicable Me 2. Once again directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, the film features Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove and Kristen Wiig reprising their roles and will also add to the voice cast Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong and Al Pacino as the villain. This first trailer understandably focusses on the Minions — the cute yellow creatures who arguably stole the first film (so much so that they’ve earned their own spin-off film, to be released after this sequel) — who get creeped out by some noises and discover something paranormal when they go outside to investigate. It’s a cute skit which should appeal to kids and those who enjoyed the first film.
Despicable Me 2 is out July 3, 2013. Watch the first trailer below.
