The first clip has been released from Despicable Me 2. In the new film, Gru (Steve Carell) is kidnapped by the “Anti-Villain League”, and recruited in order to defeat a new super villain. As we saw in the latest trailer, Gru seems to have settled comfortably into domestic life, and this clip continues the charming relationship he has with his adopted children. It’s a cute scene that will probably feel slightly familiar to parents who don’t want to deal with annoying neighbors.
Hit the jump to check out the clip. The film also features the voices of Kristen Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Ken Jeong, Steve Coogan, Dana Gaier, Elsie Kate Fisher, Miranda Cosgrove, and Russell Brand. Despicable Me 2 opens in 3D on July 3rd.
