Fans have a lot of films to watch out for this year, and one of them is Illumination Entertainment's "Despicable Me 3". Miranda Crosgrove, who voices Margo, recently uploaded an Instagram photo of her recent recording for the film, which will feature a new villain, Balthazar Bratt, and Gru's twin brother, Dru.

Computer-animated films have done well in the past few years. One of the most successful was the "Despicable Me" film, which started with evil mastermind Gru who adopted three girls from the orphanage. Gru eventually became part of the Anti-Villain League in the second film. In the "Despicable Me 3", he will be facing off against Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who became obsessed with a character he played in the 80s.

Balthazar is voiced by "South Park" creator Trey Parker. According to Den of Geek, he will join the "Despicable Me 3" cast as a villain. Steve Carell will be back as Gru, but he will also voice his twin brother, Dru. Many of the voice actors will be back to reprise their roles: Kirstin Wiig as Lucy, Miranda Cosgrove as Margo and Dana Gaier as Edith. Nev Scharrel is new to the franchise. She will replace Elsie Fisher as Agnes.

According to Just Jared, Miranda Crosgrove started working in the "Despicable Me" franchise when she was just 14 years old. Doing "Despicable Me 3", she's now 23 and will be voicing a similarly older Margo. She recently posted a photo on her Instagram with the caption, "Recording for the new Despicable Me 3 today! I started when I was 14 and now I'm 23! Can't wait for you guys to see it."

Fans will also be glad to see the Minions in "Despicable Me 3" after their own hit prequel, "Minions". Kevin, Bob, and Stuart will be back in the third film, which will also feature the return of the purple-colored Evil Minions. They will all be voiced by Pierre Coffin, the film's own director, although he will be sharing his duties with Kyle Balda. The two of them were also responsible for "Minions". The movie will be out on June 30, 2017.
