Title: Despicable Me 3
Director: Kyle Balda, Pierre Coffin
Voice Cast: Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin.
Genre: Animation

‘Despicable Me 3’ leads us back to the life of Gru, who now leads a bourgeois existence with his wife, children and unvillainous job. However he will have to get back in action, to save the world from Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who has grown up to become obsessed with the character that he played in the eighties. Gru won’t face this new adventure alone: he will discover to have a twin brother, Dru, who just like himself was raised believing that he was a failure to his family. The two will team up for one last criminal heist, to steal the diamond that Bratt stole, rescue the human race and heal their broken childhoods.

The voice cast (Steve Carrell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, Steve Coogan, Julie Andrews, Jenny Slate, Pierre Coffin), continues to work wonders, as Steve Carrell adds another farcical voice to his repertoire interpreting both Gru and his twin brother Dru. The cute animation, that will delight both children and adults has a key ingredient to its success: the soundtrack. Legendary hits, such as Michael Jackson’s ‘Bad and Madonna’s ‘Into the Groove’ mix with ‘Freedom,’ the new song by Pharrell Williams. And the result is that without even noticing, you’ll move your head to the rhythm of the music as heroes and villains confront each other through dance fights.

This American 3D computer-animated comedy is the third installment of Gru’s adventures with his Minions and family, and just as its predecessors it entertains, amuses and conveys touching morals ? such as hoping to find a unicorn and being equally content with a different encounter.
