Despicably successful Gru is back

Steve Carell is back as the voice of villain-turned-good guy Gru in Despicable Me 2.

This time round while Gru busies himself with his three adopted daughters, he is recruited by the Anti-Villain Agency.

Carell said: “When I saw the first one, I went with a friend who doesn’t have any kids. A guy in his early 40s and he loved it and laughed a lot and was actually really touched by it. That to me was an indication as to why it worked.”

Carell was also a fan of Gru’s little yellow helpers: “Everybody loves the Minions. I think it’s impossible not to love the Minions. And in this one the Minions have an ever greater presence and are different and are without giving anything away, there are some Minions you wouldn’t expect in this second one.”

Despicable Me 2 opens in the UK this month.
