Despicable Me 3 premiered on June 14, 2017, at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, and had a theatrical release in the United States on June 30, 2017, by Universal Pictures in 3D, RealD 3D, Dolby Cinema and IMAX. The film received mixed reviews from critics and grossed over $1 billion worldwide, making it the fourth highest-grossing film of 2017, the seventh highest-grossing animated film of all time and the 37th highest-grossing film of all time. It is Illumination’s second film to gross over $1 billion, after Minions in 2015, becoming Illumination’s first ever animated franchise to do so.
Former villain Gru is now an agent for the Anti-Villain League (AVL). He and his partner (and wife) Lucy are sent to foil the plans of Balthazar Bratt, a former child actor from the 1980s who has turned evil. Gru manages to stop Bratt from stealing the Dumont Diamond, a giant pink diamond, but is unable to capture him. As a result of constantly failing to capture Bratt, Gru and Lucy are dismissed from the AVL by its irrational new director Valerie Da Vinci, following the retirement of the AVL’s former director, Silas Ramsbottom.
When Gru and Lucy return home, Gru and Lucy reluctantly tell their kids, Margo, Edith, and Agnes, of their dismissal, but assure them they will find new jobs. Most of Gru’s Minions leave him when he refuses to return to villainy despite losing his job and the fact that his old sidekick Dr. Nefario had accidentally frozen himself in carbonite, with only two Minions named Dave and Jerry staying due to them not being there when the others leave with their new leader, Mel. Meanwhile, Lucy struggles to adapt to her new role as the children’s new mom. The next morning, when a butler named Fritz arrives at the Gru house, Gru discovers that he has a twin brother named Dru, who lives in a distant country named Freedonia, who longs to meet him. Shocked to learn he has a twin, Gru confronts his mother, who reveals that when she and her husband got divorced, they promised never to see each other again and each took one child to raise on their own, shortly after they were born. The family decides to travel to meet Dru, and they are surprised at his immense wealth, and the size of the mansion, which Fritz attributes to their pig farm business. Meanwhile, the Minions are arrested for trespassing at a talent show set, shortly after they finish performing. Bratt manages to steal the diamond again, intending to use it to power a giant robot and destroy Hollywood as revenge for the cancellation of his show due to him hitting puberty.
Dru reveals to Gru that their recently deceased father was a legendary super-villain known as “the Bald Terror”, whose villainous activities are the real source of the family’s wealth. As Dru was dismissed by their father as a disgrace, he asks his brother to teach him how to be a villain. When Gru refuses to revert to his old ways, Dru takes him on a joyride around Freedonia in their father’s technologically advanced car and the siblings bond. Meanwhile, Lucy tries to balance her new tasks as a mom, which she exhibits after turning away a young boy named Niko who had fallen for Margo in the midst of a traditional cheese festival, while Edith and Agnes stumble into a local tavern and learn from the bartender about a mythical unicorn which lurks in a nearby forest. Gru tries to convince Agnes that unicorns are imaginary, but decides against it to avoid hurting her feelings. The next day, Agnes and Edith set out into the woods to track the mythical ‘unicorn’, only to find a one-horned goat whom Agnes adopts and dubs “Lucky”. Meanwhile, the Minions’ longing for Gru motivates them to escape from prison and return to their former master.
