Illumination and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment present Despicable Me 3 on Digital and Digital 3D November 21, 2017 and on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray™, DVD and On Demand December 5, 2017. The characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters — Margo, Edith and Agnes — and the Minions provide hours of family fun in this heart warmingly subversive comedy from Academy Award®-nominated producer Chris Meledandri (Despicable Me Franchise) and directors Pierre Coffin (Despicable MeFranchise) and Kyle Balda (Minions1 & 2, The Lorax). Hailed as “the best Despicable Me movie yet,” by Ali Plumb of BBC Radio 1, with over $949 million in global ticket sales, Despicable Me 3 is the ultimate holiday gift, with almost an entire hour of exclusive bonus features including an all-new mini-movie, a never-before-released deleted scene, and much more!
Illumination, the studio that brought you Sing, The Secret Life of Pets and the Despicable Me franchise, continues the adventures of Gru and his family in Despicable Me 3. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker, “South Park,” Team America: World Police), the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.

I had my doubts that the movie would hold up to the previous ones but I was delightfully surprised! This movie is just as funny as the others and my love for Gru, his family and the minions only grows! Gru and his wife have been fired from the anti-villain society after they fail to keep a diamond from being stolen. During this time Gru finds he has a long lost twin brother….Dru! Dru wants to be the best super villian he can be and he wants to combine forces with Gru to steal the big diamond. Gru is using this an excuse to then turn over the diamond to get back into the anti-villian society but he finds that being bad is oh so fun! An awesome family film that even my husband will sit down and watch over and over again with us. Make sure to check out some of the bonus features! I love the making of clip and my girls love the mini movie! This movie would fit great into Christmas stockings for Despicable Me fans!
