‘Despicable Me’: The Beginning
In a jovial suburban neighborhood surrounded by white peg fences with flowering rose bushes, rise a black house with a lifeless lawn. Unbeknownst to the neighbors, concealed underneath this house is a huge secret hideout.
Encompassed by a small army of minions, there’s Gru (Steve Carell), planning the prodigious heist in the history of the world. He is going to steal the moon.
Gru captivates in all things wicked. Armed with his arsenal of shrink rays, freeze rays, and battle-ready vehicles for land and air, he slaughters all who stand in his way. Until the day he encounters the ginormous will of three little orphaned girls who look at him and discern something that no one else has ever seen: a prospective Dad.
The world's greatest villain has just met his whopping challenge: three adorable little girls named Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier), and Agnes (Elsie Fisher).

‘Despicable Me 2’: Super Bad Turns Super Dad
While Gru, the ex-supervillain is adapting to family life and strived an upfront living, a secret Arctic laboratory is stolen. The Anti-Villain League felt the necessity of an insider's help and recruits Gru in the scrutiny.
Together with the peculiar AVL agent, Lucy Wilde, Gru infers that his prime suspect is the presumed deceased supervillain, El Macho, whose his teenage son is also making the moves on his eldest daughter, Margo.
Purportedly dazzled by his over safeguarding of his children and his growing reciprocated fascination to Lucy, Gru seems on the wrong course even as his minions are being soundlessly kidnapped for some malicious motive.
