A new sneak peek for 3D computer-animated comedy film "Despicable Me 3" has arrived ahead of tomorrow's full trailer. While the first trailer highlights the film's villain Balthazar Bratt (voiced by Trey Parker), the new sneak peek hilariously reveals that Gru (voiced by Steve Carell) actually has a twin brother named Dru.
The sneak peek is set to Dr. Dre's song "What's the Difference" and begins with a butler telling Gru an important thing. "I really must have a word with you on behalf of your twin brother Dru," says the butler. Gru shockingly replies, "Twin brother?!" The teaser switches to a scene in which Gru taking a flight to visit his twin brother and yelling, "I can't wait to meet my brother!" At the end of the teaser, it is revealed that Dru lives in a huge mansion.
Judging from the teaser, it seems like the new "Despicable Me 3" trailer will put a highlight on Gru and Dru's relationship. Plot detail is still kept under wraps, but the threequel may focus on a sibling rivalry as well as Gru and Lucy's (voiced by Kristen Wiig) attempts to capture Bratt.
A poster featuring Gru and Dru has also been released via the movie's official Twitter account.
