Great news! Illumination released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3 two days ago. The film will feature the voice talents of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker (the co-creator of television’s South Park) and Miranda Cosgrove.
In the film Gru (voiced by Steve Carrell) faces off against Balthazar Bratt (voiced by Trey Parker), a former child star who grows up to become obsessed with the character he played in the 1980’s and gets into some sibling rivalry when he meets his long lost twin brother, Dru (also voiced by Steve Carrell).
The film is being directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and co-directed by Eric Guillon and is scheduled to be released in June 2017. Rumor has is that that Kevin, Bob and Stuart will be the main minions in the movie again, for the second consecutive time after the Minions movie.
I have to admit that I thoroughly both of the previous Despicable Me films, despite the fact that I’m quickly approaching the 40 year old mark. They were fresh and I’m expecting the same level of entertainment from Despicable Me 3. Just check out the trailer below and you’ll probably agree with me…
