Brought to you in collaboration between The Rock Father™ and Universal Pictures

On June 30, 2017, Universal Pictures will bring Illumination Entertainment's DESPICABLE ME 3 (get tix via Fandango) into theaters nationwide. To celebrate the third chapter of Gru's epic saga (which finds him teaming-up with brother Dru), Universal and The Rock Father™ have teamed-up to give you a shot at winning a cool DESPICABLE ME 3 Soundtrack & Toy Prize Pack. One lucky reader will receive the DESPICABLE ME 3 Original Motion Picture Soundtrack featuring Original Songs and Themes by Pharrell Williams, and a Despicable Me 3 Mini Music Mate from Thinkway Toys

Fandango - Despicable Me 3 GWPThe team who brought you Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, returns to continue the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions. Despicable Me 3, directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon, and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.

The animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud

Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date.

We received the Jail Time Tim for review in The Toy Testing Facility at Rock Father HQ, and it's pretty cute - hence the hands-on video seen above.
