I love the Despicable Me movies – they’re fun and there’s always something for everyone. I’m happy to announce that this summer another one is on its way with Despicable Me 3. Yes, that’s right – Gru and the Minions plus more are back! Check out the trailer down below.
From Universal Pictures and Illumination, Despicable Me 3, is directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin with a screenplay written by Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul. The film brings a fun new story to the Despicable Me franchise with an awesome soundtrack and a mix of old and new characters starring Kristen Wiig, Steve Carell, Trey Parker, Jenny Slate, Miranda Cosgrove, and Russell Brand.
The story begins when Gru (Carell) is sent on a mission to stop a unique, shoulder-pad wearing thief named Balthazar Bratt (Parker) from stealing a huge jewel and failing to do so. Later on, he finds out he has a twin brother named Dru (Carell) who is the complete opposite from except for their love of all things evil. Dru tries to convince Gru to go back to his old ways and become the ultimate villain he was destined to be!
Despicable Me 3 looks 10 x better than the second one. Not to say that the second one was bad because I actually enjoyed it a lot. This one just has a really fun story-line and I love the characters, especially Dru, who is essentially Gru with long blonde hair and a chipper personality.
The film is set to release theatrically on June 30th and I think it will have a big turn out. Everyone loves the minions and it’s been awhile since we’ve had the whole gang back together. Will you be seeing it this summer? Let us know.
