Having watched this cuteness-overload clip from Despicable Me (in which precious Agnes squeals, "It's so fluffy I'm gonna die!") far too many times, I cannot wait to see the friendliest super-villain Gru and his googly-eyed minions back for more in Despicable Me 2. The family-fun flick stars Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), who is enlisted by the Anti-Villain League to take down a powerful, malicious wrongdoer.
The latest clips for the comedic animation, which boasts an all-star cast of voices (Al Pacino, Kristen Wiig, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, and Ken Jeong among them), demonstrate that Despicable Me 2 will leave audiences giggling and smiling like their giddy children– besides the fact that its audience will most likely consist of children anyways!
In this first clip, Gru looks down in the dumps, alone in his chip hat as he drowns his sorrows in guac. Gru, I'll go to chipotle with you anytime.
Gru practices asking the lovely Lucy (Kristen Wiig) on a date with one of his dressed-up minions. But the one-eyed stare of his loyal yellow pal petrifies Gru and he reacts pretty intensely to say the least:
Gru sweetly tucks his daughters into bed… and right when we think Gru's about to have the "birds and the bees" chat with darling Agnes, bushy-brow Gru manages to worm his way out of that potentially awkard convo:
Gru tells his kiddies how the Anti-Villain League recruited him to save the world from a vindictive evil guy. Gru's just a bit excited for his mission:
Lucy reveals to Gru that she's his new partner, but things end up getting a tad messy. But hey, at least Gru looks great in purple:
