Great News for fans of animated films! The Despicable Me gang will be back with another film in 2013. Unfortunately the plot for this film is undisclosed at the moment, but I’m sure that more details will be released in the near future.
Chances are that most of you reading this post are going to watch this on the big screen instead of waiting for this film to be released on DVD.
The original Despicable Me was released in 2010 and earned over $540 million at the box office. The first film was directed by Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud and the screenplay for the film was written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
In the original Despicable Me a criminal mastermind used a trio of orphan girls as pawns for his grand scheme but found out that their love was profoundly changing him for the better. Steve Carrell, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Kirsten Wiig, Dana Gaier, Will Arnett, Elsie Fisher and Julie Andrews lent their voice talents to the original film.
The fact that Despicable Me 2 is written and directed by the same people who worked on the first film tells me that we can expect the same brilliance that we experienced in the first time around.
Another great thing about Despicable Me 2 is that Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove and Kristen Wiig will be reprising their roles from the first film. Veteran Hollywood Actor Al Pacino and Steve Coogan is said to be part of the upcoming film’s cast as well.
Despicable Me 2 is one of the most anticipated sequels coming out on the film circuit next year. It’s highly possible that the film will be one of the biggest blockbusters in 2013. It will be great to see Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell), Miss Hattie (voiced by Kirsten Wiig), Margo (voiced by Miranda Cosgrove) and Dr. Nefario (voiced by Russell Brand) on the silver screen again!
Despicable Me 2 is scheduled for release in July 2013 in the United States. No official release date has been indicated for South African audiences yet.
Earlier this year, Universal Studios released a teaser trailer for Despicable Me 2, check it out below:
