Despicable Me 3 Family Movie Night

Thanks to Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and Illumination Entertainment we enjoyed a fun family movie night watching DESPICABLE ME 3 which is now available on 4k Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, Digital, Digital 3D and On Demand.  My kids always go BANANAS about a chance to enjoy the zany antic of Gru and his Minions and this newest installment of the Despicable Me franchise didn't disappoint.  Just as Gru is embarking on a career as a good guy his life begins to spin him back to his evil ways in this movie that expands on the elements that have made the past films so popular as well as introduces new high jinks and hilarity that from my family's experience seeing it are sure to make you laugh.

When Gru (Steve Carell, The Office) is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker, South Park), the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis.  But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother -- a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin's despicable footsteps -- the former super villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad.  In addition to Carell and Parker, contributing their vocal talents to the movie are Kristen Wiig (Bridesmaids), Miranda Cosgrove (School of Rock), Steve Coogan (Secret Life of Pets), Jenny Slate (Zootopia), Dana Gaier (Despicable Me 1 & 2), and legendary singer and actress Julie Andrews (The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins).
