Meet Gru's brother Dru in Despicable Me 3 trailer

New Despicable Me 3 Clip Teases Gru's Twin Brother

"Despicable Me 3" will be released in theaters June 30, 2017.

The spiky-haired super new super villain is Balthazar Bratt, played by Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award victor Trey Parker, of South Park fame. After you check out the new trailer above, let us know your thoughts on what you just watched by leaving us a comment below. The first one focused on Gru and wife Lucy Wilde, played by Kristen Wiig, confronting Trey Parker's character Balthazar Bratt. Although some concept art had been floating around, Despicable Me 3 had been careful to only tease the fact that Dru would be coming. It's immediately apparent Gru had no idea his twin brother existed, but immediately seeks him out.

Despicable Me 3 will be directed by Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin, and Eric Guillon, with Ken Daurio and Cinco Paul handling the screenplay.

Other fans called the addition of Dru lazy writing, adding the inclusion felt forced, especially considering the first two trailers didn't hint at Gru's twin in any way. Also featured in teh film are Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Nev Scharrel, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate and Julie Andrews.




"Despicable Me 3" shows itself to still contain the kind of violent animated slapstick humor that Looney Tunes are famous for.

No. Even though it may be the third in the Despicable Me trilogy, Illumination has expressed no interest in ending the franchise.

Too much of something is never a good thing, but the success of Gru and the Minions is undeniable. The prequel film Minions was released in 2015 and earned $1.159 billion at the global box office.
