Universal Pictures have recently released their first trailer for Kyle Balda (Minions), Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me 2) and Eric Guillon's Despicable Me 3.
Despicable Me (2010), its sequel and spin-off Minions (2015) have all been huge box office surprises, so no one should be shocked that a third outing for Gru (Steve Carell) and the little yellow troublemakers is on the way.
While not much of the plot is revealed in this first look, we do know that it will see Gru and wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) still working for the Anti Villain League. And this time, the threat comes from weird supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), a former child star gone rogue who is obsessed with the 1980s, when his fame was at its peak. Cue a lot of '80s references, which certainly seems fitting in our nostalgia loving times.
Not featured (though they are referenced) are Gru's kids, Margo, Edith and Agnes, but the trailer naturally finds room for some Minions.
Despicable Me 3 is set for release on 30 June.
