This summer has been amazing one so far, and it is about to get better! Despicable Me 3 is coming to theaters on June 3rd (Source: Despicable Me 2017), and is promising to be just as great, or even greater than the last two! From an amazing cast to music that we can dance to, this film will have all of the elements that we’ve come to love about Despicable Me movies.
The cast of characters includes Steve Carell as the bumbling, awkward, lovable Gru, and Kristen Wiig as his partner-in-crime-fighting, Lucy. Lucy and Gru are a team that is so heartwarming and easy to relate to. And of course, they team up with the incredibly cute Minions! These adorable little yellow creatures have funny voices and make you feel all fuzzy inside. Their playful innocence and hug-worthy antics make you wish there were a few Minions around the house! Kids love these little guys, and adults have to admit that they are pretty darn cute.
The villain in the upcoming movie is “Balthazaar Bratt” (played by Trey Parker), a shoulder-pad wearing, bubble-gum chewing jewel thief. He will stop at nothing to overcome any obstacle that stands between him and his goal: the successful heist of a giant pink jewel. This guy is not above busting out some jazz-themed fight moves, and is the kind of bad guy that kids will love to root against. I was laughing outloud during the trailor alone, so I can’t wait to get the full story on this eighties-inspired character. Where did he grow up? Why did he turn to thievery? What are his weaknesses? And most of all… can Gru out-dance him?
With an all-star comedic cast, on-screen characters that we have come to love, a hilarious plot and up-beat soundtrack, this movie is sure to be a winner. Look forward to a message of love, caring and teamwork, as well as a happy ending! Get excited!
