No matter how many minions there might be, and let's be honest, there's a mindboggling number of them, the world just can't seem to get enough of them, whether they're on the big screen, dancing away in Universal Orlando's Superstar Parade or causing mayhem in Universal's Despicable Me attraction spin off, 'Despicable Me Minion Mayhem'! And now, yet another Despicable Me on screen adventure is on its way.
Despicable Me 2 sees Gru, ex-villain turned super-dad, recruited by Lucy Wilde and Silas Ramsbottom to join the Anti-Villain League - a society whose business is concerned with fighting crime on a global scale. Gru's mission, alongside Lucy and Silas, is to take down supreme villain Eduardo, who was originally going to be voiced by Al Pacino till two months ago when the Godfather actor decided to pull out. Dr Nefario, the minions, Margo, Edith and Agnes are all going along for the ride!
It was spring 2012 when Universal and Illumination Entertainment unveiled news that a second Despicable Me was going into production. Cleverly, Universal Studios tweeted the Despicable Me 2 teaser trailer to their followers. Once social media began sharing, liking and retweeting, it was only a matter of time before the world realised it was ready for more minion madness. With impeccable timimg, just days later Universal Orlando revealed an official opening date for the highly anticipated Universal Studios' Despicable Me Minion Mayhem attraction.
