Gru Has An Evil Twin In Despicable Me 3 Trailer

After the release of Minions, I thought Illumination was done with the Despicable Me franchise, but it looks like Gru is ready to deal with more family issues in Despicable Me 3. After the first trailer only showcased the villain played by Trey Parker, the new trailer has Parker's character completely absent, instead, highlighting on the arrival of Gru's twin brother, Dru.

When I first heard Dru talk, I thought Steve Carell was actually talking in his Michael Scott voice from The Office, but you can see that he has his own kind of accent too. The movie will have Dru trying to convince Gru to come back to a life of villainy — after all, he's in a family that has committed crimes for several generations.

There's also a fun callback to the first movie where Agnes sells the fluffy unicorn stuffed toy that Gru won her in the amusement park. I'm not really a fan of the series, but I'm sure kids will still love it.


Here's the 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. Gru's long lost twin emerges and he has to deal with a sibling rivalry.

Despicable Me 3 is set for a release on June 30.
