In a vast secret lair that is hidden within a happy suburban neighborhood, we discover the delightfully wicked Gru—surrounded by an army of mischievous Minions—who are planning the biggest heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon (Yes, the moon!) in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s inaugural 3D CGI feature, Despicable Me. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays and battle-ready land and air vehicles, Gru vanquishes all who stand in his way. That is, until the day he encounters the immense will of three little orphaned girls and see something in him that no one else has ever seen: a potential Dad. One of the world’s greatest super-villains has just met his greatest challenge: Margo, Edith and Agnes.
