    Facts About the New Attraction:

    One of the most successful animated films of 2010, Universal’s Pictures’ “Despicable Me” thrilled audiences across the globe with its outrageous humor, endearing characters and compelling storyline – all of which guests will be able to experience exclusively at Universal Orlando in 2012.

    Universal Orlando’s new “Despicable Me” attraction will be an all-new, fun 3-D experience that places guests right in the middle of an unforgettable adventure featuring their favorite characters from the film – Gru, his daughters Margo, Edith and Agnes, and of course, Gru’s not-so-bright pit crew, the minions

    The attraction will utilize a brand-new, highly sophisticated Infitec 3-D projection system designed to make the experience sharper, clearer and more “real” than ever before.

    Universal Orlando’s Creative team is working closely with producer Chris Meledandri, the founder of Illumination Entertainment, to create all-new animation for an all-new “Despicable Me” adventure that places guests right in the center of the action.

    During the attraction experience, guests will:

    • Laugh as they embark on an entirely-new, high-tech 3-D digital adventure

    • Marvel as they explore Gru’s lair and descend into his secret lab

    • Shriek as the entire family is transformed into minions

    • Celebrate as they are swept into a first-ever, minion-inspired, interactive dance party where they can show off their best moves

    A sequel will be released in 2013.
