I know a certain 4 year old that is absolutely looking forward to this new film. Every time we’re at the movies and the trailer comes on, she starts asking me when we can see Despicable Me 3. To say we love the Minions, Gru and the girls is an understatement. Aside from my daughter having the Fluffy Unicorn and the bed time story from the first movie, we’ve made minion cakes, minion cupcakes, minion valentines treats, minion cookies…. Need I say more???
June can’t come soon enough!!
Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, 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.
