Despicable MeNo villain – even the world's (second) greatest villain – can do everything by himself. So it comes as no surprise that Gru has an entire army of not-so-bright Minions to help him carry out his diabolical plans... unless of course, they get their hands on a Moo Cow Toy! Hardworking and devoted to their leader and his mad exploits, the Minions are content to serve as his crash test dummies along the way. After all, Gru is planning the biggest heist in the history of the world... to steal the moon!

Despicable Me, the upcoming 3-D CGI animated comedy from Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures, boasts an all-star comedy cast including Steve Carell, Jason Segel, Russell Brand, Will Arnett, Kristen Wiig, Danny McBride, Miranda Cosgrove, Jack McBrayer, Mindy Kaling, Jemaine Clement and Julie Andrews.

In a happy suburban neighborhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, we discover Gru (voiced by Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal's new 3-D CGI feature, Despicable Me.

Gru delights in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he vanquishes all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad.

The world's (second) greatest villain has just met his greatest challenge: three little girls named Margo, Edith and Agnes.
