The plot revolves around the world’s #2 supervillain, Gru (Steve Carell) whose evil attempts are always thwarted by Vector (Jason Segel), the #1 supervillain. In an attempt to outdo Vector, he starts plotting to steal the moon while he hides underground in a suburban neighborhood living with his idiotic minions which look like genetically altered Corn Pops. In the teaser trailer, the Great Pyramid of Giza is shown to have been stolen and may contribute to part of Gru’s plan. His plot is jeopardized by three orphaned girls (Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier, and Elsie Fisher) who see him as a prospective father.
