After four years, the Despicable Me franchise is finally back with its main series of characters and it certainly looks like it is going to be an interesting ride for the former villain, Gru. The newest trailer for Despicable Me 3 has been released and while it is clear that everyone from Gru to the minions are back for another adventure, it looks like this time around there is another member of the family who will be just as important to the storyline. In the latest trailer, Gru gets to be reunited with his long-lost twin brother Dru.
As with previous movies in the franchise Despicable Me 3 sees Steve Carell once more voicing Gru, but this time he is also pulling double duty as Dru as well. Although Gru has given up his villainous past for a more family oriented lifestlye, he is tempted to return to his old ways upon meeting his wealthy brother Dru. While the minions only make a short appearance in the trailer, they are just as eager to return to their life of crime as Dru is to getting Gru back in the game. Although the Minions may have spawned their own movies because of their popularity, in Despicable Me 3, it looks like much of the focus is where it belongs, on Gru and Dru.
After being fired from his current job, Gru is at a loss for what his next step is and with Agnes holding a tag sale to sell of her toys in order to make money for the family, meeting his wealthy twin brother Dru looks like a sign. Upon being reunited, Dru shows off all of his wealth and even the history of the family, which shows the villainous past that the family has long been a part of. In reuniting with his brother, Dru tells Gru that he thinks they should do a heist together and live up to the family history.
In this trailer for Despicable Me 3, it looks like Gru might in fact be tempted to return to his past of villainy, but even with his own abilities it seems like the weak link may in fact be Dru, even if he is just as bad as Gru once was. With his family to support and a new brother to get to know, it looks like Gru has a lot of decisions to make and one of those may in fact be whether or not to go back to a lift of crime in order to make ends meet.
No matter what decision Gru makes, it looks like this adventure will be another fun ride for the franchise and even the Minions. Audiences will get to see as Gru meets Dru and a new villain rises when Despicable Me 3 hits theaters on June 30.
