New Despicable Me 4 Trailer Reveals the Mega Minions

Universal Pictures has released the new trailer and poster for Despicable Me 4, which will open in theaters on July 3, 2024. The fourth installment has been rated PG by the MPA for action and rude humor. 

In the first Despicable Me movie in seven years, Gru, the world’s favorite supervillain-turned-Anti-Villain League-agent, returns for an exciting, bold new era of Minions mayhem in Illumination’s Despicable Me 4.

The film follows the 2022 summer blockbuster phenomenon of Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru, which earned almost $1 billion worldwide.

The animated franchise now begins a new chapter as Gru (Oscar nominee Steve Carrell), Lucy (Oscar nominee Kristen Wiig), and their girls —Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Madison Polan)—welcome a new member to the Gru family, Gru Jr., who is intent on tormenting his dad.


Gru faces a new nemesis in Maxime Le Mal (Emmy winner Will Ferrell) and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina (Emmy nominee Sofia Vergara), and the family is forced to go on the run.

The film features fresh new characters voiced by Joey King (Bullet Train), Emmy winner Stephen Colbert (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert), and Chloe Fineman (Saturday Night Live). Pierre Coffin returns as the iconic voice of the Minions, and Oscar nominee Steve Coogan returns as Silas Ramsbottom.

Illumination Entertainment

Packed with nonstop action and filled with Illumination’s signature subversive humor, Despicable Me 4 is directed by a co-creator of the Minions, Oscar nominee Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets), and is produced by Illumination’s visionary founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Brett Hoffman (executive producer, The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Minions: The Rise of Gru).

The film is co-directed by Patrick Delage (animation director of Sing 2 and The Secret Life of Pets 2). The screenplay is by Mike White, the Emmy-winning creator of The White Lotus, and Ken Daurio, the veteran writer of every Despicable Me film.
