Despicable Me 3 is finally here!

Mark your calendars and plan to go see Despicable Me 3 on June 30 th , 2017. It is the third installment in the Despicable Me film series. The main character, Gru, is a lovable villain who has a great heart.  In the first film, Gru becomes a Dad and learns to love unconditionally. In the second film, he gets married and uses his evil training to do good by joining the AVL (Anti Villain League). In this new Despicable Me installment, Gru is introduced to his twin brother, Dru, which he was separated from at a young age.  Gru is a great character dealing with very real issues including parenting, family and career with a sense of humor.  His approach to dealing with serious villain moments is with a good dance fight. He makes you feel that a good dance fight helps you forget about your troubles.
