The Minions Are Back for Despicable Me 3
My kids are huge fans of the Despicable Me series. They loved the first and have been fans of the minions since then. We’ve been waiting for the new movie to be released since we saw the previews. Just in time for the holidays, Despicable Me 3 was released on Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD on December 5th. Perfect for stocking stuffers and Christmas Eve Boxes.
Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker, “South Park,” Team America: World Police), the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.
Academy Award® nominee Steve Carell (Foxcatcher) reprises his hilarious role as reformed criminal mastermind Gru, as well as his newly discovered twin, Dru. The all-star voice cast also features Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids, Despicable Me 2), Miranda Cosgrove (Despicable Me 1 & 2, School of Rock), Steve Coogan (The Secret Life of Pets, Philomena), Jenny Slate (Zootopia, The Secret Life of Pets), Dana Gaier (Despicable Me 1 & 2) and legendary singer and actress Julie Andrews (The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins).
Thanks to Universal Home Entertainment we got a copy of Despicable Me 3 to enjoy just in time for the holidays. We couldn’t wait to see what the minions have been up too. Of course, we were not disappointed. Can you believe that Gru has a twin brother? Dru helped add more laughs and fun for our family. We got to see Gru step back into his villainous ways for a bit in this movie. If you’re big fans of the minions, you’re going to love them in this film. Despicable Me 3 is a great gift for the holidays or to add to your collection.
For even more hours of fun, you can pick up the three movie collection with all three of the Despicable Me movie in one set. Perfect if you don’t own any of the other movies. The movie is full of laughs and it’s a great way to spend time with your family. To learn more about Despicable Me 3 and the other movies in the franchise visit them online.
