Universal Pictures released a cheeky, action-packed trailer teaser for Minions: The Rise of Gru during Super Bowl LIV on Sunday. The sequel to 2015’s Minions features the returning voice talents of Steve Carell, who plays the bumbling villain Gru, and Pierre Coffin, who voices various Minions including longtime faves Kevin, Stuart, and Bob.
The trailer teaser for Minions: The Rise of Gru is a whole heck of a lot of fun — a good sign, surely, as we wait for the official trailer to drop later this week. The trailer teaser, which aired during Sunday’s big game, gives us a sneak peek at the world of a pre-teen Gru still aspiring to sky-high levels of infamy while sporting a full head of hair and wrangling his Minions. Of course, there’s a ton of little yellow rascals running around to do 12-year-old Gru’s bidding. Whether it’s dressing up as an airline attendant and offering peanuts to passengers, playing paramedic when a team member gets hurt, or awkwardly showing off their new braces while other Minions stare in wonder, there’s no shortage of fun in this Minions sequel.
Minions: The Rise of Gru arrives in theaters on July 3. Below, you can watch the teaser for the official trailer which arrives on Wednesday, February 5.
