Here are some fun facts about Despicable Me 2. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to put the DVD on hold at SCLD so you won’t miss out on the hilarious minion antics.

  1. There are at least two minions named Kevin. One has one eye, one has two eyes. Which minions are your favorites?
  2. Kristin Wiig played Lucy Wilde in Despicable Me 2 and Miss Hattie in the first Despicable Me.
  3. The fishing pool at Agnes’ birthday party has a piranha in it. Maybe its left over from Vector’s piranha gun?
  4. Gru’s first name is Felonious.
  5. The movie was advertised using a giant blimp (the “Despicablimp”) which flew around the country making appearances in big cities. It’s 165 feet long (or, as long as 117 fluffy stuffed unicorns laid end to end).
  6. The kid whose balloon pops in the shopping mall is the same kid whose balloon Gru pops in the first movie. Poor kid. No balloons for him.
  7. In Gru’s house, the flower seen in a painting on the wall is actually the Biohazard symbol. Stay away from that painting!

      Hi Sam,

      Sorry that you weren’t able to reach Lucy. I tried the number as well and got a message that the mailbox was full.

      You might want to try again in a few days!

        (3 months later) It’s still not working, you may want to edit. I’m not sure they use this phone number as promotional purposes anymore
