Universal has released a new clip from its upcoming animated film 'Despicable Me 2.' In the clip above, Steve Carell's villainous Gru character and his companion, voiced by the amazing Kristen Wiig, get a little rescue help from those adorable minions. The tiny yellow guys get into their typical shenanigans behind the wheel of a car. Watch out Vin Diesel, the minions may be coming for your 'Fast and Furious' job.

The first film was huge for Universal, earning the studio $540 million in box office, and it looks like the sequel could be an even bigger hit this summer.

Featuring an all-star voice cast that includes Carell, Wiig, Russell Brand, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Ken Jeong, and Benjamin Bratt, 'Despicable Me 2' hits theaters on July 3 -- here's hoping they bring the fireworks.
