Illumination Releases Second Official Trailer for 'Despicable Me 4'!

As far as modern animated franchises go, Despicable Me is undoubtedly one of the best-known and most lucrative ones in history. It all began in 2010 and now, 14 years later, we have three main movies, two spin-off prequels, numerous shorts, and an upcoming fourth movie, Despicable Me 4, which is set to be released in theaters on July 3, 2024. Now, the premiere is not that far away, so we already know a lot about the upcoming movie, but Illumination has today blessed us with yet another trailer, which you will be able to see below!

The Despicable Me series focuses on the villain Gru and his henchmen, the Minions; Gru initially aims to become the world’s most feared villain, but his story changes as he encounters three orphan girls named Margo, Edith, and Agnes, who soon become his adopted daughters and change his plans. After Despicable Me, a sequel was released in 2013, followed by the 2015 prequel movie Minions, which told us more about the titular characters and their encounter with Gru. It was all followed by a second main sequel in 2017 and another Minion-centered prequel in 2022.

We have promised you a trailer, so before we continue, please, take a look at the second official trailer for the upcoming Despicable Me 4 movie:
