'Despicable Me 3' Trailer: Watch Gru Defeat a New, Cheesy '80s Villain

They're back! Illumination Entertainment released the first official trailer for Despicable Me 3, which introduces new villain Balthazar Brat who goes head to head with the sort of wicked (but kind-hearted) Gru. Watch above as the two knuckleheads battle on a boat along to Michael Jackson's "Bad" and look out for those silly Minions!

Brat, voiced by South Park co-creator Trey Parker, is described as a former child actor "driven to supervillainy as a result of the abrupt cancelation of his TV series when he hit puberty." He also clearly addicted to the '80s, as seen with his cheesy dance moves and massive shoulder pads. 

And of course, Steve Carell reprises his role as Gru and long-lost twin brother Dru. Kristen Wiig is also back as Anti-Villain League agent and Gru's wife Lucy Wilde, as well as Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Nev Scharrel). Despicable Me 3 will hit theaters on June 30, 2017.
