The series continues on March 3 with PG-rated “Despicable Me 3.” After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis.

The series wraps up on April 7 with “Sing.” The cheerful, entertaining film with warm-hearted story-line was released in 2016 by Illumination Entertainment.
