The 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.
Pharrell Williams asked the world to get "Happy" for DESPICABLE ME 2, and now he's back, overseeing the soundtrack for DESPICABLE ME 3. Set for release on June 23, the new soundtrack not only features original songs and themes, but some classics as well. With the villainous Bratt taking his cues from the 80s, we've got the likes of Madonna, Michael Jackson, A-Ha and Nena popping up as well.
