In 2010 animation hit Despicable Me villain-turned-dad Gru learned to love three little girls who became his daughters. In the upcoming sequel, it looks like there might be some romantic love in Gru’s future. A new clip features the Steve Carell-voiced character mustering up the bravery to ask Lucy Wilde of the Anti-Villain League out on a date.
In this exclusive clip, Gru prepares to call up Lucy, a new character voiced by Kristen Wiig, who provided the voice for Miss Hattie in the first movie. And, of course, some minions make an appearance in this clip too, though it’s not a display of the adorable yellow guys at their most helpful.
Check out the video below to see this moment from the film and to learn who Gru has on his speed dial:
You might have noticed that Lucy Wilde does not have a 555 number – yes, it’s a real number you can call! Give Lucy a ring at (626) 584-5723, and you’ll hear a message from her, including a personal note for a certain persistent minion.
In Despicable Me 2, Gru gets to put his former villain skills to use when he’s recruited by the Anti-Villain League to track down new baddie Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt). Returning voice cast members include Russell Brand (Dr. Nefario) and Miranda Cosgrove (Margo), and Steve Coogan will voice Silas Ramsbottom, head of the Anti-Villain League.
Despicable Me 2 opens in theaters on Wednesday, July 3.
