Being a supervillain is never easy. But for Gru, it's doubly tough when you aspire to become the greatest one ever. Steve Carell provides the voice for this arch-criminal who concocts a plot to steal the moon (using his new Shrink Ray) as part of his plan to upstage his wiseguy rival Vector (voice of Jason Segel). Using three adorable girls from a nearby orphanage, Gru sets his plan in motion only to run into one immovable roadblock: his heart.
Russell Brand, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Will Arnett, Danny McBride, Jack McBrayer and Julie Andrews round out the supporting voice cast in this blockbuster animated hit. Directed by Chris Renaud, Pierre Coffin; screenplay by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, based on a story by Sergio Pablos.
