Cast and Crew
Despicable Me 3 is directed by Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin and stars Kristen Wiig, Steve Carell, Miranda Cosgrove, Trey Parker..
This third installment in the Despicable Me franchise (which also inspired the spin-off film Minions) introducesa new character: Gru's twin brother Dru (both voiced by Steve Carell). Apparently they were separated at birth when Gru's parent divorced -- kind of like the girls in the Parent Trap movies (see Parent Trap 1961 and Parent Trap 1998).
It looks like this new-found brother may be a bad influence because he wants Gru to return to the life of a super villain.
In the first Despicable Me, Gru's evil doings can to a halt after his hard heart was melted by three young orphans, Margo, Edith and Agnes (voices of Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier and Nev Scharrel).
In Despicable Me 2, Gru uses his talents for good by becoming a spy and taking down a bad guy. He also falls in love with a beautiful covert agent (voice of Kristen Wiig).
We are hoping he doesn't lose all that positive reformation in this new adventure.
