The chiclets and I watch a lot of films and we’ve been (kinda) patiently waiting for Despicable Me 3 to come out. Not really though, we’re super excited for this new addition to the Despicable Me franchise so I’ve been hearing a countdown to June 30, 2017 (opening day) for a while now.
About Despicable Me 3
Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, 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. The film will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.
If you’re looking forward to watching the film too, you can purchase your tickets now and skip the waiting in line. Pack some bananas in your bag and you’re good to go!
