‘Despicable Me 2’ Teaser Trailer: The Minions Are Back to Their Old Nonsense

Couple of questions for you: are you full up on adorable teaser trailers for the day after that charming Frankenweenie spot? Or do you have room in your heart for more cute? Have you missed the minions? Fine, that’s three questions, but they’re all applicable. Universal Pictures and Illuminations Entertainment’s Despicable Me came out of nowhere in 2010 to become a charming box office smash. Who knew that an animated film about a super-villain who adopts three tiny orphans as part of one of his evil super-villain plans would end up being so sweet, touching, and funny? Not me. I had no idea. And then I cried in the first film – I cried. So yes, I would like the inevitable sequel to come out right about now.

But we won’t be getting it until next summer. So, until then, sate your desire for villainous hijinks, peppy minions who speak their own wacky little language, and perhaps more music than you’re expected with the most teaser-iffic of teaser trailers for Despicable Me 2. It’s an all-minion affair, so be warned.

Despicable Me 2 opens on July 3, 2013. [Apple Trailers]
