Despicable Me 3 is a 2017 American 3D computer-animated comedy film produced by Illumination Entertainment and released by Universal Pictures. It is the third installment in the Despicable Me film series, and the sequel to Despicable Me 2 (2013). Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and co-directed by Eric Guillon, the film is written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio and stars the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig and Trey Parker.
The third in the series shows more character development (and characters) than the first two. It also has multiple plot threads. It’s all woven together in a tight and professional manner, but somehow it just doesn’t have the zing and pacing of the previous two shows, and there are not enough minions.
In fact, Trey Parker as the villain almost steels the show.
