Despicable Me 3 Trailer Sneaks Online

The past couple of weeks has seen no end of trailers being released for highly anticipated films of 2017, and adding their two-cents to the trailer game is Universal Pictures with a trailer for ‘Despicable Me 3’. You heard me.. a third one.

Gru, voiced once again by Steve Carell, and his little yellow minions are back, and this time he faces his most funky and fashionable foe to date, Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker) who comes with his own 80’s soundtrack. 

The official synopsis for ‘Despicable Me 3’ is:

“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. 

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’ will be unleashed in UK theatres 30th June 2017
