It’s going to be an awesome summer. There is a new Despicable Me coming to theaters on July 2nd, and we might just catch a glimpse of a giant yellow Minion floating through the sky!
Look up! Because Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 2 Despicablimp has begun its journey across the U.S.! Cruising at an average height of 1,000 feet, the Despicablimp will travel approximately 20,000 miles over the next few months going from coast-to-coast and points in between.
