Kristen Wiig - Despicable Me - Movie update

If you've seen the posters or trailers for Universal's upcoming animated 3D movie "Despicable Me," you're probably wondering what's it all about. It features the voice talents of comedians like Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, and Kristen Wiig, and strangely a nearly all hip-hop soundtrack led by Pharrell Williams of the Neptunes and N.E.R.D.

Pharrell contributes four songs to the soundtrack of the movie about a supervillain, Gru (Carrell), who considers walking away from his army of minions when he meets three little girls who see him as a father figure.

The trailer already features the Pharrell written and produced theme "Despicable Me." He also contributes "Fun, Fun, Fun," "Prettiest Girls," and "Rocket's Theme." He also co-wrote and produced a track for Robin Thicke, "My Life," as well as "I'm on a Roll" by former Clique Girlz members Destinee & Paris.

Pharell also wrote and produced songs for the movie's characters The Minions titled "Minion Mambo" and for orphaned character Agnes, titled "The Unicorn Song." The soundtrack also features a pair of #1 disco hits, "You Should Be Dancing" by The Bee Gees and "Boogie Fever" by The Sylvers.

Pharrell's score for "Despicable Me" can be heard in its entirety when the movie hits theaters on July 9th. The soundtrack hits stores a few days prior on July 6th.
