LEGO Despicable Me 4 Movie Sets Coming!

To celebrate the July 3rd release of Illumination’s Despicable Me 4, the newest chapter in the biggest global animated franchise in history, the LEGO Group, Illumination, and Universal Products & Experiences announce they are partnering to launch four exclusive LEGO Despicable Me 4 sets.

In Despicable Me 4, the first Despicable Me movie in seven years, Gru, the world’s favorite supervillain-turned-Anti-Villain League-agent, returns for an exciting, bold new era of Minions mayhem as Gru (Oscar nominee Steve Carrell) and Lucy (Oscar nominee Kristen Wiig) and their girls —Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Madison Polan)—welcome a new member to the Gru family, Gru Jr., who is intent on tormenting his dad.

Gru faces a new nemesis in Maxime Le Mal (Emmy winner Will Ferrell) and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina (Emmy nominee Sofia Vergara), and the family is forced to go on the run.

The film features fresh new characters voiced by Joey King (Bullet Train), Emmy winner Stephen Colbert (The Late Show with Stephen Colbert) and Chloe Fineman (Saturday Night Live). Pierre Coffin returns as the iconic voice of the Minions and Oscar nominee Steve Coogan returns as Silas Ramsbottom.

Packed with non-stop action and filled with Illumination’s signature subversive humor, Despicable Me 4 is directed by a co-creator of the Minions, Oscar® nominee Chris Renaud (Despicable Me, The Secret Life of Pets), and is produced by Illumination’s visionary founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and by Brett Hoffman (executive producer, The Super Mario Bros. Movie and Minions: The Rise of Gru). The film is co-directed by Patrick Delage (animation director Sing 2 and The Secret Life of Pets 2), and the screenplay is by the Emmy-winning creator of White Lotus, Mike White, and the veteran writer of every Despicable Me film, Ken Daurio.

The new range of products includes two sets revealed in a sneak-peek video clip today.

    Gru really doesn’t translate well to minifig form. Otherwise, I guess the sets are okay…

    Banana! 🍌I love the Despicable Me movies and how can you not love the minions. It’s great that you can get the whole family. ….but, I’m kind of in the middle of the Lego space theme. So I don’t know what I’m going to do? Gru looks like the Penguin from Batman.🐧

      Haha! Now that you mention it, he does look like the Penguin! 😀

        There are long-lasting rumors that Gru was inspired by the British comedic comic mag supervillain Grimly Feendish… Uncle Fester from Addams Family is older than both of them, though…

          I never knew that! Ha! It would be interesting to look at all the heroes and villains and see which ones are based on real people
