Good morning, Ayshah here live with Newsround
and we've got pandas, Leicester and...
America is blasted with a mega snow storm.
I'm Steve Carell and I play Gru in Despicable Me 3,
and I am going to be answering your questions
so stay tuned for this and look at the new trailer.
For us in the UK winter is pretty much over, but in America
it's a different story.
In parts of Northeastern America a massive snow storm has hit,
causing chaos in four states.
This is the East coast of America, and these are the states
of New York and New Jersey.
Both have declared a state of emergency as a huge snow blizzard
sweeps over the area.
Called Storm Stella, schools have been closed,
and more than 6000 flights have been cancelled.
Winds of up to 60mph are expected.
In total, about 50 million people across America are under
the blizzard warning.
People have been urged to stay indoors and not to travel.
Temperatures have been forecast to drop as low as -2
to -4 degrees Celsius.
Snowfall could be as high as 50cm in some areas, with 5-10cm
of snow expected per hour.
Thousands of workers are needed to help clear the New York streets,
with teams working 12 hour shifts and using 1,600 snow ploughs.
All this, just a week before the official start
of spring on March 20th.
And with schools closed thanks to all the snow,
what are children in New York up to?
Six-year-old Markie sent us this special report.
This is New York City.
95th St, and it's snowing.
There's a snow plough.
And there is no school today.
So instead I did a workbook and I played games.
There's this cool domino game that I played
called Domino Rally.
Well, he's loving the snow and so are these fellas.
Red Pandas Berry and Zhu had a right lark about outside in their zoo
enclosure in New York.
Humans got to watch their antics through a live stream camera.
Footie now, and it was another amazing night for Leicester fans
after their team beat the Spanish side Sevilla to get
into the quarterfinals of the Champions League.
Despite struggling in the Premier League this season,
the champions are doing well in Europe and won 2-0.
Wes Morgan and Marc Albrighton scored the Foxes' goals.
We have to be delighted with the performance
in knocking Seville out tonight because their record in
Europe is there for everyone to see.
But we are in there on merit, no mistake about that.
We might just be the surprise team.
Next, a special appeal has been launched to help raise money
to help people in Africa who are facing hunger.
Charities who are helping give out food and water say at least
16 million people in the African countries of Somalia, Kenya,
Ethiopia and South Sudan need food, water and medical treatment.
Wars and a lack of rain are being blamed for what's happening.
Last up this morning, he's the big hearted
super-villain with many Minion
friends, and this June Gru's returning to the big screen
in Despicable Me 3.
We've been putting your questions to Steve Carell,
the actor behind everyone's favourite criminal mastermind.
Hi, I'm Steve Carell, and I play Gru in Despicable Me 3.
As I was saying, I...
Alice aged 14 from Canterbury, England.
Well, the first time I did the Gru voice it was for my kids,
because I was trying to make them laugh.
And we were playing around with different voices,
when I finally said, "hey, guys, what do you think
of this, what do you say?"
They liked that one.
I left that life behind me.
Just one heist!
You know, Omar, that's just the way he was born.
And in this next movie, you're going to meet his twin
brother whose name is Dru.
And he has an equally long nose.
They both find themselves extremely handsome.
Look at him!
Oh, hair would make you better.
Look at his face!
Oh, he's so mad.
I think that would be fantastic.
Because a Minion will essentially do whatever you want them to do
so I would have Minions cook me breakfast, and I would sometimes use
them to scrub my back because I assume a Minion has a nice
porous quality, you could use them like a sponge.
And they're infinitely entertaining.
They're just funny to have around.
C'est Gru con boobs!
If they had a choice, of anything to eat in the world,
it would probably be bananas.
There's a Minion ride, and when the Minions,
how do I put this nicely, well, when the Minions fart
on the ride, the audience can smell bananas.
And it's slightly disgusting.
That was information you didn't want but I gave it to you, sorry.
That's all from me, Newsround's back at 4.20pm.
