The fourth feature film entry in the Despicable Me franchise (following the 2015 spinoff Minions) and seventh animated feature collaboration between Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, Despicable Me 3 sees the continuing adventures of Gru (Steve Carell) and Lucy (Kristen Wiig) as they face off former-child-star-turned-obsessive-villain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker, of South Park and The Book of Mormon fame).

Produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy and executive produced by Chris Renaud, Despicable Me 3 is directed by Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda and Eric Guillon with a screenplay by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
