Despicable Me 3: First Look at the Villainous Balthazar Bratt

Despicable Me

Originally announced back in 2014 after the release of Despicable Me 2, Despicable Me 3 has been in the works at Universal and Illumination Entertainment ever since, with a 2017 release date in mind. Seeing as Despicable Me spinoff movie Minions grossed over $1.1 billion worldwide in 2015, it appears safe to say: this franchise has stolen the hearts of children and adults alike.

Earlier this year, it was revealed that South Park co-creator Trey Parker is lending his voice to Despicable Me 3 as the new villain Balthazar Bratt, described as “a former ‘80s child star who has been pissed off at the world ever since he hit puberty and his show was cancelled.” With a thirst to take over the world, it looks as though the third Despicable Me movie will also explore Balthazar’s backstory.

The child version of the antagonist – also known as "Evil Bratt" - was revealed as part of Despicable Me 3 promotional packages sent out to media. The Rock Father were one of the first outlets to show off the youngster, who you can see in the pictures below.
