Watch: The trailer for Despicable Me 3 introduces Gru's twin brother, Dru
Will Despicable Me 3 have Gru go on one last heist with his long-haired, super rich twin Dru?
Gru’s family just got bigger, thanks to the discovery that he has a twin brother named Dru.
Set to Dr. Dre, Eminem and X-Zibit's 'Whats the Difference,' Gru (Steve Carell) is tempted to return to his old villainous ways and do one last heist with his long-haired, super rich twin, Dru (also voiced by Carell).
The previous trailer for Despicable Me 3 introduced audiences to new baddy Balthazar Bratt, voiced by South Park's Trey Parker. The moonwalking and mulleted arch nemesis was a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played during the Reagan years.
The trailer starts with the butler saying, "I really must have a word with you on behalf of your twin brother Dru." Gru, who is shocked, replies: "Twin brother?!"
The teaser switches to a scene in which Gru is taking a flight to visit his twin brother and yelling, "I can't wait to meet my brother!"
At the end of the teaser, it is revealed that Dru lives in a huge mansion.
The film's plot detail is still kept under wraps, but it may focus on a sibling rivalry as well as Gru and Lucy's (voiced by Kristen Wiig) attempts to capture Bratt.
The first Despicable Me movie was released in 2010 followed by 2013's Despicable Me 2.
Despicable Me spin-off Minions was released in 2015.
Also voicing the characters in Despicable Me 3 are Miranda Cosgrove (Margo), Dana Gaier (Edith), Nev Scharrel(Agnes), Russell Brand (Dr. Nefario), Andy Nyman (Clive), Pierre Coffin (Kevin the Minion/ Bob the Minion/ Stuart the Minion/ additional Minions) and Michael Beattie (The Scar-Faced Man).
