Illumination Entertainment has released a new trailer for Despicable Me 3, which is set to be released in theaters this summer.
The animated trilogy-maker once again follows Gru (Steve Carell), his family, and his Minions. This time around Gru has to deal with Balthazar Bratt (voiced bySouth Park co-creator Trey Parker), who uses the character he played as a child star in the ’80s as his villainous persona, while also considering a return to villainy himself after meeting his long-lost twin brother Dru.
