In the third movie in the Despicable Me Franchise, the evil villain Gru, who is now an upstanding citizen, employed by the AVL (Anti Villain League), married to colleague, Lucy, and dad to three adopted girls, discovers that he has a twin brother. His mom and dad divorced when the twins were babies, and each parent took one of the children.
The movie begins with Gru thwarting super villain Bratt’s attempt at stealing the world’s largest diamond, but fails to capture him, and as a result, he and Lucy are fired from the AVL.
The Minions are eager for Gru to return to a life of villainy and when he refuses, they walk out on him.
Soon after this, Gru is approached by his twin brother Dru’s butler who asks him to visit his brother. Stunned to hear that he has a brother, Gru, Lucy and the girls set off to meet Dru. Dru is fabulously wealthy and Gru soon finds out that his wealth does not come from the pig farm he uses as a front for his villainy!
Meanwhile Bratt has managed to steal the diamond again, and Dru cleverly manipulates Gru into helping him steal the diamond back, however, Dru and Gru have very different agendas.
The antics of the two brothers, Lucy and the girls, who are once again joined by the minions, makes for an absolutely hilariously funny and highly entertaining movie which will provide 90 minutes of superb entertainment for the whole family.
Gru and Dru are voiced by the talented Steve Carrol and Lucy is voiced by Kristen Wiig. The movie is Universal Pictures latest 3D offering and is being released just in time for the Gauteng School Holidays.
The film is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda and written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio.
The movie opens on 30 June at cinemas countrywide.
