What’s New About Despicable Me 3?

Every fan of the popular Despicable Me franchise has been waiting since 2013 for the release of the 3rd sequel. Fortunately, the wait is almost over as Despicable Me 3 is set to be released in mid-2017. The movie is expected to be a big thing, especially because some new characters are reported to be introduced.


The once-evil genius Gru will be proceeding with the fun-filled adventures with his adorable wife, Lucy Wilde. The two will be enjoying their adventure with their three daughters, along with the Minions. Balthazar Bratt, who was a child star back in the days, is back and all grown up. However, he is so much obsessed with his childhood character in the 80s.

Bratt is plotting a universal domination in the upcoming movie. His career has been badly affected after he hit puberty. For that, he wants to be the boss of the Earth so that nobody can mess around with him. How will things turn out? Will he provoke Gru, who was once an evil genius? Will his plan to dominate the world succeed? Maybe or maybe not.

So What’s New About The Movie?

Every movie sequel usually comes with new ideas, and Despicable 3 is not an exception. Expect to meet some new, and unimagined characters in this engaging animation movie. Here are some fresh and interesting things you should expect in the movie.

• Gru’s Twin Brother

You know how Gru, voiced by Steve Carell, is funny with almost every word he speaks. Now his twin brother, Drew, will be showing up in the movie. Apparently, Drew will still be voiced by Steve Carell, though the dress code and overall appearance are completely different from his twin. Drew is dressed in an all-white outfit and has blonde and long hair.

• Gru’s Daughters’ Real Mother

Gru and Lucy adopted the three adorable girls, Agnes, Edith, and Margo. They have had enjoyable times all along, though it is reported that the real mother is coming back. How will the girls react to the arrival of their original mom? And how will Gru and Lucy handle this?

• A New Villain

In the previous sequel, El Macho was the super villain, and he was unlikable, especially to the Minions. Conversely, a new villain is set to be introduced in Despicable Me 3, and it is no much of a surprise. El Macho’s son is said to be among the villains in the movie. That’s not much of a new thing given that his father was the villain of villains.

• Gru’s Girls Leave For College

With many years gone since the release of Despicable Me 2, Gru’s daughters, Margo and Edith, are now young adults and are expected to be leaving for college. This brings more drama and fun when you imagine how Gru will handle it. It is reported that Gru will be sending Minions to look after the girls, and that is where more conflict and comedy happen.

Things will get even more challenging to Gru and Lucy, especially because they are expected to be having their own child in the movie. This means that Agnes, their young adopted girl, might be jealous of the newborn. Despicable Me 3 is set to be released on June 30th, 2017. More fun, more adventure, and more conflicts are what you should expect in this forthcoming movie.
