Gru Is On A Mission to Save His Family in the Trailer for ‘Despicable Me 4’

That’s right, there’s another Despicable Me movie on the way, and while every part of me knows I should say something catty about that fact, I just can’t, these movies are so much fun. Sure, I know the minions are annoying to a lot of people but let’s be honest, it’s not the minions you hate, is their misuse in unfunny memes posted by middle-aged housewives everywhere.

Despicable Me 4 catches up with Gru & Co a short while (well, at least 9 months) after the last film and their little group has now grown by one. That’s right, Gru Jr. is here! When Gru and his family are rushed to a safe house after being warned their lives are in danger from a face from the past out for revenge Gru decides it’s time for that most classic of family moments, the first heist.

Honestly, there’s just something about Steve Carrell’s voice in this that just makes me smile. It seems this fourth film is keeping all of the things that made the last three (4 if you count the spin-off) so much fun. I have no doubt that this one will fully continue the tradition and rake in ALL the money while it’s doing it.

Look for Despicable Me 4, only in theaters July 2nd, 2024
