The contents of the trailer

Despicable Me 4 trailer offers a decent glimpse of the plot without giving away any spoilers. The film follows the happy family of Gru, his wife Lucy, his three daughters and the Minions of course. Only, this time their family has a new member to count and cuddle. Gru Junior, Gru and Lucy’s baby son.

While Gru adores his son, Gru Jr. seems to only be capable of pouting sternly at his father, while giggling and cooing and cuddling his mother. If fatherhood for the fourth time is not challenging enough, now Gru must also whisk his family to a safe house, to protect them from the brand-new threat of Maxime Le Mal’s villain, and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina.

From heisting with a baby and fighting off honey badgers Minions filling the kitchen with popcorn and the vending machine with soda bombs, Despicable Me 4 promises to charm your pants off with its humorous and heartwarming journey.
