This summer, "Despicable Me 3" will introduce its most terrifying enemy yet: The 1980s.
"South Park" creator Trey Parker voices the new villain, Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who has grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the 1980s. Despite his terrible fashion sense, he "proves to be Gru's most formidable nemesis to date."
Illumination just posted the first trailer, which features Steve Carell returning as Gru, and Kristen Wiig returning as Lucy. (She tries to create a shipper name with Gru called "Grucy," but Gru does not approve.) Apparently Carell is also playing Gru's long-lost twin brother Dru, setting up D3 for some sibling rivalry, in addition to the '80s villain plot.
Here's the trailer, which is surprisingly light on Minions:And here's more on the movie from Illumination:
