Despicable Me 4 trailer

The Minions went rogue during the Super Bowl. Forget the halftime show, Gru's yellow henchmen hijacked the airwaves with a 30-second ‘Big Game’ teaser promoting Despicable Me 4. While the spot lacked new movie footage, it made up for it in Minion mayhem. Narrated by the smooth tones of Jon Hamm (though sadly not joining the cast), the trailer showcased the Minions wielding cutting-edge AI technology (probably for nefarious, yet adorable, purposes). Be prepared for a Minion-fueled marketing blitz.

Despicable Me 4 story


Gru and Lucy are back, but this time they're facing a whole new challenge — parenthood. Their newest addition, Gru Jr., turns their life upside down. When things seem chaotic enough, a villain named Maxime Le Mal escapes, forcing Gru and his family to go undercover. Here's the twist — Gru has to juggle raising his son with pulling off heists – a hilarious recipe for disaster (and probably some heartwarming moments too). While the action is sure to be epic, the real story seems to be about Gru navigating his relationship with his son.
