There’s a new villain in town and he’s very, very “bad” indeed.
Helmed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, “Despicable Me 3” will not only see the return of the adorable Minions and newly weds “Grucy” (pet name for Gru and Lucy), but also a new, shoulder pad-wearing bad guy – Balthazar Bratt.
Voiced by Grammy Award winner and “South Park” co-creator Trey Parker, Balthazar Bratt is a 80s-inspired character from head to toe. From his moustache to his tacky purple suit, to his choice of weapon (read: bubble gum and rubik’s cube), Gru’s new nemesis is one heck of a Michael Jackson fanboy. Did we mention that he uses “Bad” as his heist music?
The trailer is fairly straightforward: Balthazar Bratt can be seen trying to steal a huge pinkish gem while Gru and Lucy stops him. In the end, a very naked Gru gets entangled in one of his foe’s bubble gum while Bob and Stuart starts DJ-ing in a crowded beach.
Slated for release on 30th June 2017, “Despicable Me 3” features the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, and Nev Scharrel.
