Despicable Me 3

Illumination Entertainment is a fine animation studio, but despite their well-convinced stories, the execution comes nowhere near the level of Disney or Pixar. If you had to ask what their flagship film would be, it would most probably be the Despicable Me films.

Despicable Me took the studio to where it is now, and Universal has released the first trailer for Despicable Me 3, starring Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, and Trey Parker.

Check out the trailer here below.

The film will introduce Balthazar Bratt (voice of Trey Parker), who comes with the complete 80s gimmick package. The dated villain has shoulder pads, a mullet, dances to Michael Jackson – but let’s be honest, who wouldn’t – and has weapons that include chewed gum that expands and levitates large objects, Rubix cube smoke bombs, and a keytar that can blast the opposition with its music.

If we are being honest, the narrative for Illumination’s films cannot hold a candle to its bigger competitors. But the animation is beautiful and bright, so it does live up to its studio name.

The film also stars Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate, and Julie Andrews.

Here’s the official plot synopsis:

The team who brought you Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, returns to continue the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions. Despicable Me 3, directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon, and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.

The animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud.

Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is 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. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date.

Despicable Me 3 is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and co-directed by Eric Guillon. Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio wrote the script. Universal Pictures will release Despicable Me 3 in theaters on June 30, 2017.
