  • THE LEGO® DESPICABLE ME 4 SETS WILL BE AVAILABLE BEGINNING MAY 1, 2024
  • ILLUMINATION’S DESPICABLE ME 4 ARRIVES IN Theatres WORLDWIDE, JULY 3,
    2024

LEGO Group, Illumination and Universal Products & Experiences are confirming that they are in fact partnering on something new – although not a giant Minion, as a recent April Fools post on social media would suggest. To celebrate the July 3 release of Illumination’s Despicable Me 4, the newest chapter in the biggest global animated franchise in history, the partnership is launching new LEGO Despicable Me 4 sets.

The new range of four products includes two sets that were revealed in a sneak-peek video clip today. The first set is the LEGO Despicable Me 4 Minions and Gru’s Family Mansion with its iconic architecture and beloved movie items, such as the red couch, fireplace and rocket-style bedroom, as well as a brightly colored tree house. The second set is a Brick-Built Gru with dancing Minions – complete with a ukulele-playing Mel and Kevin, armed with his fart gun. Fans will need to wait a bit longer for the unveiling of the entire lineup and hidden easter eggs.

The LEGO Despicable Me 4 products will be available from May 1, 2024, via LEGO stores, lego.com and from select leading retailers around the world.

Both brands hope the DM4 sets will spark imagination and create unforgettable creative experiences for fans around the world with the well-known Despicable Me characters.

“Using the LEGO brand’s creativity and endless possibilities, this partnership between Illumination, Universal Products & Experiences and the LEGO Group celebrates fun storytelling. Fans told us they were really missing LEGO Minions, and we are happy to bring this world of mischievous fun back to them, through exciting new play experiences. We hope the new sets will delight any fan – small or big!” says Solvita Akmene, Designer at the LEGO Group.

“Illumination’s Despicable Me franchise is beloved by fans across the globe, and our partnership with the LEGO Group brings together two iconic brands,” says Rafael Macias, Executive Vice President & Global Commercial Officer, Universal Products & Experiences. “The LEGO Despicable Me 4 sets offer new storytelling opportunities and provide imaginative ways to bring to life the joy, action and sweet-but-subversive humour of this record-setting franchise. We’re as excited as the fans for Despicable Me 4 and can’t wait for their reaction to the new film-inspired LEGO sets.”

About Despicable Me 4
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.
