Get ready for a whirlwind of Minion mayhem as Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment drop the first trailer for the much-anticipated fourth installment of the beloved “Despicable Me” series! Brace yourselves for a July release that promises to take you on an exhilarating ride into a bold new era of Gru and the mischievous Minions.
Our favorite reformed supervillain, Gru (played by the hilarious Steve Carell), is back in action alongside his partner-in-crime-fighting, Lucy (the talented Kristen Wiig), and their adorable trio of daughters – Margo, Edith, and Agnes. But hold on to your seats because the Gru family is expanding with the arrival of Gru Jr., a little troublemaker determined to give his dad a run for his money.
The plot thickens as Gru finds himself facing a formidable new foe, Maxime Le Mal (Will Ferrell), and his seductive partner in crime, Valentina (Sofia Vergara). The family is pushed to the brink, forcing them to go on the run in a bid to save the day.
The star-studded cast includes the voices of Joey King, Stephen Colbert, and Chloe Fineman, with the iconic Pierre Coffin returning to bring the beloved Minions to life. Steve Coogan is back as the ever-entertaining Silas Ramsbottom, adding to the excitement.
This marks the triumphant return of the main “Despicable Me” franchise after a seven-year hiatus, following the success of 2022’s “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” which raked in nearly $1 billion worldwide. Directed by Oscar nominee Chris Renaud and Patrick Delage, and produced by the dynamic duo Chris Meledandri and Brett Hoffman, this film is set to be a blockbuster.
