What’s even more despicable than the sequel to Despicable Me?

That’d be Despicable Me 2 on DVD and Blu-ray, which comes packed with 45 minutes of bonus features — including three mini-movies starring Gru’s despicable lovable, gibberish-spouting Minions. Get a glimpse at one of the new shorts, “Panic in the Mailroom,” in the clip below.

(No cartoon kittens were harmed in the making of this film.)

Set your wicked watches and begin the countdown: Despicable Me 2 can be yours to own on Dec. 10. The film will also be available for digital download Nov. 26. And if your kids (or you; we won’t tell) just can’t wait that long, try dialing Gru at **362 — that’s **DM2 — for another mini-movie sneak peek. (And FYI: Calling **DM2 will opt the caller into recurring messages from Universal. Up to 1 MSG/WK. Text Help for help; Stop to cancel. MSG&DATA rates may apply.)
