Universal also announces new version of How The Grinch Stole Christmas...
Universal Pictures has announced that it plans to release Despicable Me 3 in 2017.
The movie studio enjoyed a roaring success with Despicable Me 2 last year - topping the annual box office chart with takings in excess of £44m.
And it has now slated the third movie for June 30, 2017 - arriving after spin-off movie Minions.
Illumination Entertainment - which created the hit movies - is also planning a new animated take on How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
Also slated for 2017, the new film will come 17 years after a live-action version of the Dr Seuss children's classic which starred Jim Carrey.
