Hilarious Epic Adventure: Despicable Me 3

We attended the screening as a guest of the studio

School is finally out which means making summer long memories with my kids.  Our summers are spent exploring, lounging, and watching movies.  Luckily Illumination read my mind and will share their newest Despicable Me, Despicable Me 3.  Steve Carell reprises his role as Gru, but also takes on the part of Dru (Gru’s long lost brother).  Kristen Wiig returns as Gru’s wife and partner in crime fighting Lucy, while Trey Parker voices new villain Balthazar Bratt.  Balthazar Bratt is a former child star who has become obsessed with the evil TV character he played in the ’80s which means the film is filled with amazing 80’s music, bright colors, and tongue and cheek references to an era from my childhood.

We were invited to a morning screening of the film which was sponsored by Bounty, Yummy Spoonfuls, and Kellogg’s.  As we mingling with minion fans and noshed, we had a surprise visit from Food Network Star Duff Goldman who taught us how to make our very own minion!  What a great start to a minion packed day.  After our minions were complete, we headed upstairs who watch Despicable Me 3.

We last left off at Gru’s wedding to Lucy.  Gru went from super villain to super hero.  Margo, Edith, Agnes and the Minions now have a new mom which means lots of love and adventures are on the horizon for this complete family.  The movie starts off with the husband and wife spy team stopping the infamous child star turned villain, Balthazar Bratt, from stealing the world’s largest diamond. The outcome wasn’t what Gru and Lucy had hoped for and alas our two heroes are fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Bratt.  Soon after, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis.  He went from villain, to father, husband, to hero, to unemployed and now doesn’t know what to do with his new life but all this changes when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother.  The ying to his yang, Gru finds that his brother Dru is exactly what his spirit and family needed to makes this transition in life complete.

Despicable Me 3 will be in theaters June 30th, check their office page for more information http://www.despicable.me . The original motion picture soundtrack featuring original songs by Pharrell Williams as well as some tubular 80’s songs will be available on June 23.
