New ‘Despicable Me 3’ Trailer: Gru Goes Back to his Villainous Roots

Is Gru going back to his criminal roots?  Illumination Entertainment released a brand new trailer on Wednesday for Despicable Me 3 and it certainly looks like Gru is up to no good!

Gru (played by Steve Carell) reunites with his long lost, blond haired twin brother Dru (also played by Steve Carell).  Upon meeting, Dru tries to convince Gru to continue the family business which, basically, is a life of crime.  Though Gru has sworn off villainy, Dru convinces him to come to the dark side once more.  Of course, hilarity and chaos ensue along with lots and lots of minion cameos!


The trailer is actually pretty adorable and has it’s funny parts.  I’ll admit, I laughed at the minions towel snapping a prison inmate.  All in all, Despicable Me 3 looks to be entertaining for both children and adults alike.  Check out the trailer below:
