When Gru and Lucy return home, Gru and Lucy reluctantly tell their kids, Margo, Edith, and Agnes, of their dismissal, but assure them they will find new jobs. Most of Gru’s Minions leave him when he refuses to return to villainy despite losing his job and the fact that his old sidekick Dr. Nefario had accidentally frozen himself in carbonite, with only two Minions named Dave and Jerry staying due to them not being there when the others leave with their new leader, Mel. Meanwhile, Lucy struggles to adapt to her new role as the children’s new mom. The next morning, when a butler named Fritz arrives at the Gru house, Gru discovers that he has a twin brother named Dru, who lives in a distant country named Freedonia, who longs to meet him. Shocked to learn he has a twin, Gru confronts his mother, who reveals that shortly after they were born, she and her husband got divorced, they each took one son to raise on their own and promised never to see each other again. The family decides to travel to meet Dru, and they are surprised at his immense wealth, and the size of the mansion, which Fritz attributes to their pig farm business. Meanwhile, the Minions are arrested for trespassing at a talent show set, shortly after they finish performing. Bratt manages to steal the diamond again, intending to use it to power a giant robot and destroy Hollywood as revenge for having his show cancelled.
