Holiday Gift Guide: Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray Combo Pack


The holiday season is fast approaching and I'm officially counting down the days. One of my favourite family activities during the time off work is sitting with the kids and watching a movie. This year, we will be watching one of our ultimate favourites on DVD - Despicable Me 2! Yes, the $863 million worldwide box office phenomenon and the year’s #1 comedy. That's the one. I have to say that, while I liked the first one, this one is ten times better. I was almost in tears laughing so much when I first saw it  in theatres. This hilarious movie arrives on Blu-ray™ and Blu-ray 3D™ Combo Packs, DVD and Digital HD including UltraViolet™ on December 10, 2013, from Universal Studios Home Entertainment. It is already available on Digital HD and includes 45 minutes of funny and insightful bonus features. Steve Carell returns to play Gru, the newly reformed master criminal now trying to live life as a normal dad to his three adopted daughters. Joining Carell is Kristin Wiig, Benjamin Bratt, Miranda Cosgrove, Russell Brand, and many others. 

I recently tried out the Digital HD with UltraViolet™ and I really love that it lets you watch movies anywhere, on any device. You can instantly stream or download movies to watch on iPad, iPhone, Android, smart TVs, connected Blu-ray players, and even game consoles. You can pre-order a copy of Despicable Me 2 Blu-ray Combo Pack on Amazon.ca for $22.97. 

Here are the bonus features exclusive to Blu-ray™ Combo Pack & Blu-ray 3D™ Combo Pack:
  • Three All-New Mini-Movies Starring the Minions—Introduced by Gru
    • Puppy
    • Panic in the Mailroom
    • Training Wheels (my favourite!)
  • The Making of the Mini-Movies—A fun-filled take on the making of the mini-movies through the eyes of the artists who made them. 
  • Deleted Scene
  • The Minions—A visit to Illumination Entertainment in Paris and Los Angeles to hear what it’s really like to work with the Minions.
  • Evil Minions—Bigger, badder and more purple than ever, the newest and fiercest addition to the Minion species can chew through metal and swallow a car. Find out more about the process that led to their creation and design.
  • A Gru-Some Transformation—A sit-down with Steve Carell as he discusses the transformation of Gru from the ultimate super-villain to super-dad and international spy. 
  • El Hombre Malo: The Villainy Of El Macho—Every great story needs a good villain, and Despicable Me 2 brings on the diabolico in the form of El Macho! Learn about the creation of this character and the actor who brought him to life—Benjamin Bratt (such a cutie!)
