From the biggest animated franchise in history and global cultural phenomenon, comes the untold story of one twelve-year-old's dream to become the world's greatest supervillain.
In the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru is growing up in the suburbs. He's a fanboy of supervillain supergroup the Vicious 6, who have just ousted their leader. With some mayhem-making backup from his loyal followers, the Minions, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. But Gru's interview to become the newest member of the Vicious 6 doesn't go well (to say the least), and only gets worse after Gru outsmarts them and suddenly finds himself the enemy of the apex of evil.
On the run, Gru will turn to an unlikely source for guidance and discover that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
