Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, the animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud.
Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date. The film will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.
We get to see it on Tuesday – we can’t wait!! The Despicable Me movies are some of my families favorites, so when I found out that Hasbro has released games, I knew my kids would be so excited! The Bop It! and Operation Despicable Me 3 Edition games are a lot of fun and my kids have played them for hours on end. I am excited to be able to offer one lucky reader a set of their own Despicable Me 3 games for hours of fun at home!
BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME
Get ready to pull it, twist it, and bop it with the BOP IT! DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game!

DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game features the voice of the adorable Agnes and sounds of Minion Stuart. Requires 2 ‘AAA’ batteries, demo batteries included.
OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 EDITION GAME
After a long vacation, Dave needs some help! In the OPERATION: DESPICABLE ME 3 Edition Game, help the MINIONS fix Dave’s wacky ailments by using tweezers to pick silly “Funatomy” pieces out of the game tray.
