Those new Blu-ray copies of Despicable Me and the sequel, Despicable Me 2, will have to last you a long time according to the reports from Universal. The studio announced earlier today that the third installment in the widely successful film franchise will release in 2017.
That’s three years away, plenty of time for the writers to come up with new mischief for Gru to get into. Of course Gru will need his minions, who have grown to be stars themselves throughout the series. Universal has a lot to celebrate with how the film has done worldwide, the original movie released in 2010 bringing in $543 million worldwide, while the follow up almost hit $1 billion coming in at $935 million.
