The N.E.R.D. member wrote the title song for the film, which can be heard towards the end of the trailer here. The score will be composed by Pharrell, with help from legendary composer Hans Zimmer.
“I love cartoons and animation and I’ve never seen such incredible 3D CGI,” Williams said regarding the film. “To score ‘Despicable Me’ along with Hans and Heitor and write original songs for the film is a dream come true.”
