Despicable Me 3 is a 2017 American computer-animated comedy film produced by Illumination and distributed by Universal Pictures. It is the sequel to Despicable Me 2 (2013), the third main installment, and the fourth installment overall in the Despicable Me franchise. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, with Illumination production/character designer Eric Guillon as the co-director, and written by Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio, the film stars the voices of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Trey Parker, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate, Dana Gaier, and Julie Andrews.
Despicable Me 3 premiered at the Annecy International Animated Film Festival on June 14, 2017, and was released in the United States on June 30. The film received mixed reviews from critics and grossed over $1 billion worldwide. At the time of release, the film became the fourth-highest-grossing animated film of all time. The film is also the fourth-highest-grossing film of 2017. The sequel, Despicable Me 4, is in development.
Married Anti-Villain League agents Gru and Lucy Wilde are sent to stop Balthazar Bratt (a former child actor turned supervillain after his show "Evil Bratt" was cancelled when he reached puberty) from stealing the Dumont diamond. Gru recovers the diamond, but Bratt escapes. Displeased, Director Valerie Da Vinci, taking former Director Silas Ramsbottom's place, dismisses Gru and Lucy from the AVL.
When Gru and Lucy return home, they tell their adopted children Margo, Edith, and Agnes of their dismissal, but assure them they will soon have new jobs. When Gru refuses to return to being a supervillain, and his assistant Dr. Nefario is frozen in carbonite, most of his Minions, led by Mel, abandon him to find new jobs. Dave and Jerry stay behind, but the rest of the Minions have several misadventures throughout the film, eventually landing in jail.
A butler named Fritz arrives at Gru's home with an invitation from Gru's long-lost twin Dru, who lives in a distant country named Freedonia. The family travels to meet Dru, and are surprised by his immense wealth and massive mansion. Fritz attributes this success to their large pig farming business. Meanwhile, Bratt steals the diamond again, intending to use it to power a giant robot that will destroy Hollywood in revenge for the cancellation of "Evil Bratt". Dru reveals to Gru that their deceased father was a supervillain known as "the Bald Terror", whose villainous activities and technological advances are the real source of the family's wealth. Dru wants Gru to teach him how to become a villain, but Gru refuses to revert to his old ways. While Lucy struggles with her new tasks as a mother, Dru and Gru become closer, especially after joyriding in their father's high-tech vehicle.
Gru and Dru decide to steal the diamond; however, Gru secretly intends to bring it to the AVL to convince Da Vinci to rehire him and Lucy. They narrowly escape with the diamond and are rescued by Lucy. Dru, finding out Gru's true motives, is hurt that Gru lied to him about teaching him to be a villain. In return, Gru insults Dru's incompetence and declares he will leave Freedonia and end their relationship.
Bratt, disguised as Lucy, kidnaps the children, and once again acquires the diamond. Gru and Dru put aside their differences and pursue him after realizing the deception. With his robot powered by the diamond, Bratt terrorizes Hollywood, covering it in superpowered bubble gum in hopes of lifting the city into outer space. Lucy rescues the girls as Bratt attempts to kill Gru with the robot's laser. Dru manages to break into the robot and power it down from the inside, nearly dying in the process. Bratt confronts Gru, who challenges him to a dance fight, eventually stealing Bratt's weaponized keytar and defeating him with it. The Minions, having escaped jail, reunite with Gru. Dru and Gru also reconcile.
Gru and Lucy are reinstated into the AVL. The newly united family celebrates in Gru's home, and Lucy bonds with the girls and acknowledges them as her daughters. Dru, along with most of the Minions, steals Gru's aircraft and flies away. Gru and Lucy decide to give them a five-minute head-start before engaging pursuit.

Despicable Me 3 was released on DVD, Blu-ray, Blu-ray 3D, and Ultra HD Blu-ray in the United Kingdom on November 6. In the US, Despicable Me 3 was released on digital download on November 21, and was released on DVD and Blu-ray on December 5. The releases also included a short film, titled The Secret Life of Kyle.
Despicable Me 3 grossed $264.6 million in the United States and Canada, and $770.2 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $1.034 billion, against a production budget of $80 million. Deadline Hollywood calculated the net profit of the film to be $366.2 million, when factoring together all expenses and revenues, making it the third-most-profitable release of 2017.
In the United States and Canada, the film opened alongside The House (2017) and Baby Driver (2017), as well as the wide expansion of The Beguiled (2017), and was projected to gross $85–95 million in its opening weekend. The film played in 4,529 theaters, and was the widest release ever, surpassing the record of The Twilight Saga: Eclipse's (2010) 4,468 theaters. It made $4.1 million from Thursday night previews, down slightly from the $4.7 million of the second film and $6.2 million made by Minions (2015), and $29.2 million on its first day. It went on to debut to $72.4 million, slightly below expectations and the lowest of the series since the first film, but still topped the box office and was the fourth-best opening for Illumination. In its second weekend the film grossed $33.6 million (a drop of 53.6%, more than the previous Despicable Me films but similar to Minions), finishing second at the box office (with a fresh record of 4,536 theaters showing the movie) behind newcomer Spider-Man: Homecoming (2017) ($117 million).
In other territories, the film was released in five markets on June 16, 2017, and grossed $9.9 million in its opening weekend. In its third week of release the film opened in 46 more markets, grossing $95.6 million. The film's largest markets were China ($158.2 million), Japan ($66.2 million), the United Kingdom ($62.7 million), Germany ($43.8 million), and France ($41.4 million).
The review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes reported an approval rating of 58% with an average score of 5.70/10, based on 195 reviews. The website's critical consensus reads, "Despicable Me 3 should keep fans of the franchise consistently entertained with another round of colorful animation and zany—albeit somewhat scattershot—humor." Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, assigned the film a score of 49 out of 100 based on 37 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "A−" on an A+ to F scale, down from the first two films' and the spin-off's "A".
IGN gave the film a six out of ten score, saying, "It's not much, but Despicable Me 3 is at least enough for the younger fans of the franchise." Peter Debruge of Variety wrote, "Despicable Me 3 is unwieldy, but it mostly works, as co-directors Pierre Coffin (who also voices the Minions) and Kyle Balda never lose sight of the film's emotional center, packing the rest with as much humor as they can manage. The jokes come so fast and furious, the movie can hardly find room for Heitor Pereira's funky score, and though Pharrell Williams has contributed five new songs to sell soundtracks (including the sweet "There's Something Special"), the movie hardly needs them." Alonso Duralde of TheWrap gave the film a mixed review, saying: "Ultimately, none of these flaws will matter to the throngs of little kids who have made the previous Despicable Me movies (and the superior Minions spin-off) into giant global hits."
Sandy Schaefer for Screen Rant gives the film a three stars out of five saying "Despicable Me 3 offers enough in the way of zany, irreverent entertainment (with a dose of heart) to please steadfast fans of the franchise." Jordan Mintzer for The Hollywood Reporter gave the film a positive review saying "This rather clever, breakneck-paced cartoon gives fans exactly what they want: Like the new nemesis voiced by Trey Parker, it shoots multiple machine-gun bursts of bubblegum at the audience, asking them to chew and enjoy" Peter Travers of Rolling Stone gave the film three stars out of four, saying "Pierre Coffin (who voices the Minions) and co-director Kyle Balda keep the plot spinning merrily. Pharrell Williams contributes five new songs to the mix, including the hummable "There's Something Special." It's no mystery why Illumination's franchise is still something special after three go-rounds—the box-office gross is a whopping $1.5 billion and counting." Leah Greenblatt of Entertainment Weekly gave the film a 'B' grade, saying "What shines through is the visual wit and innate sweetness of the storytelling, and Carell's cackling, cueball-skulled misanthrope a (mostly) reformed scoundrel who can still have his cake, and arsenic too."
