Illumination Entertainment hit an absolute jackpot when Despicable Me was released to audiences young and old back in 2010 and since then the Minions and Gru haven’t looked back. Now entering their third instalment of the franchise, Despicable Me 3 introduces new characters and adventures, and in the latest featurette for the film, leading man Steve Carell reflects on his time with the character and how far things have progressed.
Discussing the themes and how things have changed with each film, Carell clearly has a strong connection with the character and that looks like it will only continue with the third movie.
You can watch the latest Despicable Me 3 featurette below.
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 theatres in summer 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 out in UK cinemas on 30th June.
