March 14 (UPI) — Gru meets his long-lost twin brother Dru in the second trailer for “Despicable Me 3.”

The clip, released Monday, features the former supervillain voiced by Steve Carell jobless after he is fired from the Anti-Villain League from being unable to capture new antagonist Balthazar Bratt (Trey Parker).

Gru’s fortune seem to change, however, once he is reunited with Dru — also voiced by Carell — who lives in a fancy mansion that contains an evil layer filled with a number of gadgets and a rocket-powered car.

Dru — who resembles Gru with a full-head of blonde hair — convinces his reformed brother to continue his family’s legacy and return to a life of crime.

“Face it Gru, villainy is in your blood,” Dru says as the pair view statues of previous villains from throughout their family history.

The final scene features the brothers suiting up for one last heist as Gru and Dru attempt to scale a large building located in the middle of the ocean.

Directed by Pierre Coffin, Kyle Balda and Eric Gullion and also starring a returning Kristen Wiig as Gru’s wife Lucy Wilde along with their adopted kids voiced by Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier and Nev Scharrel, “Despicable Me 3” arrives in theaters June 30.
