May 03, 2013

Go Faster!

Turbo, in theaters July 17, tells of a snail who dreams of racing in the Indy 500. Actor MICHAEL PEÑA voices Tito, Turbo's friend and Number 1 fan. "Tito is full of ideas," Peña told TFK. "Like, 'How about we do karate and eat tacos?'"

He's Not Despicable

Despicable Me 2, in theaters July 3, finds former bad guy Gru joining the Anti-Villain League and raising his three daughters. "Margo, Edith, Agnes and Gru have become a family," MIRANDA COSGROVE, who is the voice of Margo, told TFK. "Gru tries to stop Margo from going out with a boy."

Smurf Return

Patrick Winslow, played by NEIL PATRICK HARRIS, and the Smurfs take on the City of Light in The Smurfs 2, opening July 31. "The clan heads to Paris hoping to save Smurfette and foil the now-famous Gargamel," Harris told TFK.

Scare School

Before Mike and Sulley were best buds in Monsters, Inc., they were college roommates—and rivals. On June 21, the wannabe scarers will get an education, in Disney/Pixar's prequel Monsters University. "There's a lot of humor," director DAN SCANLON told TFK. But the film's about "figuring out who you were meant to be and how you become it."
