Even though we saw Gru in the 2022 prequel Minions: The Rise of Gru, it’s been seven years since there’s been a proper Despicable Me sequel. But now Steve Carell and company are back, and there’s even a new Gru — baby Gru Jr. — who plays a large part in the new film’s plot. To Carell, that’s a big plus, because he loves the quirky relationship that his character has with his young son. (Click on the media bar below to hear Steve Carell)
