About the Film: Gru is back, and this time he’s got… a brother? A twin brother? Nobody mentioned this before? But we’ll allow it, as it means we get double the Steve Carrell in DESPICABLE ME 3, where he’s playing both Gru AND Dru.
This time Gru and his wife and fellow Anti-Villain League agent Lucy are up against Balthazar Bratt, an ‘80s child star who has grown up to be an ‘80s-obsessed supervillain. But will Gru stick to the straight and narrow when the charming Dru arrives, trying to convince his brother to come in on a heist that will one-up Bratt’s latest haul?
