First Trailer Arrives for Illumination’s ‘Despicable Me 3’

New trailer introduces Balthazar Bratt, a former child star voiced by ‘South Park’ co-creator Trey Parker who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ’80s.

A new trailer has arrived for Illumination Entertainment’s Despicable Me 3, the sequel bringing back Steve Carell as the dastardly but charming villain Gru.

The new trailer introduces audiences to Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ’80s. Described as Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date, this new character -- voiced by South Park co-creator Trey Parker -- looks like he belongs in another decade, with a mullet and a bald spot, a Rubik’s Cube, and a wicked looking keytar:

In addition to Parker, the Despicable Me 3 voice cast features the return of Kristen Wiig as Lucy, as well as the adorable little girls Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Nev Scharrel).

Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon, and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, Despicable Me 3 will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.
