Universal Pictures (distributed by Warner Bros. Discovery) brings to audiences this July, a Chris Melandari and Illumination production, the much anticipated, Despicable Me 4.

As audiences have seen the growth of the character of ‘Gru’ through 3 films of Despicable Me, the 4th movie promises a stronger, more relatable evolution of Steve Carell’s role, as he tackles new challenges in every film, this one is no exception. On balancing ‘Gru Jr.’ and protecting his family with a threat over his head, Carell adds, “Lucy and the girls have always been his motivation to be the best that he can be, but with the arrival of Gru Jr., the family dynamic changes. Gru Jr. is a chip off the old block, but he’s not warming up to dear old dad. Gru has nothing but love for his baby boy, but he faces an uphill battle to win his son’s affection. It’s every parent’s nightmare to not instantly bond with your kids, and Gru struggles to establish a relationship with his new bundle of joy, while simultaneously saving the world as an AVL agent.”
