Synopsis: In a happy suburban neighbourhood surrounded by white picket fences with flowering rose bushes, sits a black house with a dead lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbours, hidden beneath this home is a vast secret hideout. Surrounded by a small army of minions, there’s Gru (voiced by Steve Carell), planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon.
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 — Margo, Edith and Agnes — who look at him and see something that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. That’s Gru’s greatest challenge.
