Parents out there are no doubt excited to hear that Despicable Me is back this summer. Gru and his minions have returned for the seriesā€™ third installment, and the first trailer really seems to be playing to the 30-plus crowd.

First up, thereā€™s the new villain voiced by Trey Parker. His name is Balthazar Bratt, and he dresses like heā€™s in a bad spinoff of Miami Vice: purple suit, shoulder pads, bad flat top/mullet combo, and mustache. He uses bubble gum as a weapon and considers Michael Jacksonā€™s ā€œBadā€ to be ā€œheist music.ā€ Bratt is the entirety of the ā€˜80s rolled into one character, which is sure to make parents happy while the minions DJ on the beach. Yes, you read that right.

Hereā€™s the trailer for Despicable Me 3.

Iā€™m decidedly not a fan of this franchise, which puts me in the minority, but the casting of Trey Parker really has me curious. Heā€™s not a person who just goes after paychecks, so maybe itā€™s good?


Weā€™ll find out when Despicable Me 3 opens June 30, 2017.
