However, Gru refuses, claiming that he is now a legitimate father and cheap jelly businessman. Longing to resume his criminal life, Dr. Nefario, Gru’s friend and assistant, leaves Gru for new employment.

Despicable Me 2 2013 Casting:-
In October 2011, The Hollywood Reporter reported that Javier Bardem was negotiating to voice a villain, named El Macho, but the negotiations failed. By February 2012, Al Pacino had joined the cast to voice the villain. In April 2012, producers confirmed that Steve Carell, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, and Elsie Fisher were returning to reprise their roles. Kristen Wiig, who voiced Miss Hattie in the original film, voices Lucy Wilde.
an agent of the Anti-Villain League who recruits Gru to track and take down a tough, Mexican villain named El Macho. Steve Coogan joined the cast as Silas Ramsbottom, the head of the Anti-Villain League. On May 3, 2013, just a month before the film’s premiere, producers announced that Al Pacino had left the film over creative differences about how his character should come to life. At the time of his departure, Pacino’s character had already been fully voiced and animated.
Chris Renaud, co-director of the film, commented on Pacino’s departure: “So we don’t want an unhappy actor, and we want something that is well-realized on all sides. If you don’t see eye to eye, sometimes it’s easier to (part company) and move on from there.” Benjamin Bratt, who had already been considered before Pacino, stepped in to voice Eduardo. Chris Meledandri, the producer of the film, admitted that he was not “aware of any of the major animated films of the last 15 years that has brought an actor in at such a late stage”. Due to the finished animation.
Bratt had to match his timing exactly to the character’s mouth movement. Initially, during his five-day recording, he tried to imitate Pacino’s voice, but found it impossible, saying “no one can out-Al Pacino Al Pacino”. He ended up only using Pacino as an inspiration and resolved to go with his own interpretation of the character.
Despicable Me 2 2013 Production:-
Chris Meledandri, CEO of Illumination Entertainment, said in July 2010 that a sequel was in the works. By June 2011, the release was tentatively scheduled for July 3, 2013. Miranda Cosgrove stated on her official Facebook and Twitter page on October 14, 2011, that she had recorded her first lines, while Meledandri confirmed in February 2012 that they had started working on the film.

Some of the biggest challenges for the animation team were creating visual effects (such as water and jelly), to which led to the crashing and replacement of some of the studio’s drives.
