Last week, it was announced that Al Pacino had left Despicable Me 2 and would no longer be voicing the villain. Instead, Benjamin Bratt has stepped in for the role. Despite the casting change, the movie is still slated for a Summer 2013 release. After the trailer first released a couple months ago, the studio has now given us a new Despicable Me 2 poster. You can check it out below.
Nice little tag line to go with the Despicable Me 2 poster here and have to love all the minions present. I have to admit, those cute little wise-cracking gremlins were one of the bigger highlights of the first movie for me. Now it looks like they’re returning in much larger numbers.
Despicable Me 2 sees the return of Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Elsie Kate Fisher, Dana Gaier and Russell Brand. It will also feature the voice work of Kristen Wiig, Ken Jeong, Moises Arias, Steve Coogan and Benjamin Bratt.
In this installment, Gru is recruited by the Anti-Villain League to help put a stop to a new super criminal (voiced by Bratt).
Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud are returning to direct from a screenplay by previous Despicable Me scribes Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul.
Despicable Me 2 releases in theaters on July 3, 2013.
