It is widely accepted that the worst thing to happen to modern cinema was the Minions, but Despicable Me fans have found something even more annoying in the newest trailer for Despicable Me 3: inaccuracies in the cinematic universe. It will be interesting to see how the twin sub-plot is going to connect to Balthazar, who is voiced eccentrically by South Park's Trey Parker. The potential for abundant amounts of family reunion type fun are all packed into a trailer less than three minutes long.
The first trailer introduced the movie's main antagonist, Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker), a former kid actor who's obsessed with the character he played.
Steve Carell and his brand of comedy fit in nicely here.
Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award victor Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central's global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. It's immediately apparent Gru had no idea his twin brother existed, but immediately seeks him out.

"Despicable Me 3" was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and co-directed by Eric Guillon.
Nevertheless, two Carell characters and more will try to make Despicable Me lovable for a third time on June 30.
