Meet Gru’s twin brother in the new Despicable Me 3 trailer!
Meet Gru’s brother twin brother, Dru, in the new Despicable Me 3 trailer! Check out the player below to see what’s been happening with the Minions, Gru (Steve Carell), Lucy (Kristen Wiig), Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Nev Scharrel) since we last saw them back in 2013. We haven’t gotten a new Despicable Me 3 trailer since last December. In that one, we met the spiky-haired super villain in shoulder pads named Balthazar Bratt, played by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker (co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon). Balthazar is a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ’80s.
Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon, and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment‘s Despicable Me 3 will be released in theaters on June 30. The animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud. The first film, Despicable Me, was released in 2010 and grossed over $543 million worldwide. The sequel Despicable Me 2, which was released in 2013, grossed almost $971 million worldwide. The prequel film Minions was released in 2015 and earned $1.159 billion at the global box office. Minions 2 is set for 2020. There have also been a number of short films, video games, books and theme park attractions set around Gru’s little yellow helpers with the odd voices.
