Gru gets into a dance fight in the first Despicable Me 3 trailer

Despicable Me 3

Despicable Me, its sequel and spin-off Minions have all been huge box offices surprises, so no one should be shocked that a third outing for Gru (voiced as ever by Steve Carell) and the little yellow troublemakers is on the way. The first trailer for the new movie has arrived, so dance battle your way to the screen and watch it below.

While not much of the plot is revealed in this first look, we do know that it'll see Gru and wife Lucy (Kristen Wiig) still working for the Anti Villain League. And this time, the threat comes from weird supervillain Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), a former child star gone rogue who is obsessed with the 1980s, when his fame was at its peak. Cue a lot of '80s references, which seems fitting in our nostalgia-loving times.

Not featured (though they are referenced) are Gru's kids, Margo, Edith and Agnes, but the trailer naturally finds room for some Minions.

With Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda and Eric Guillon on directing duty, Despicable Me 3 is set for release on 30 June.
