In this follow up sequel Javier Bardem is expected to play the character of Macho, a new villain for the upcoming animated film, i.e. if he welcomed aboard with the rest of the cast. The plot of the original animated comedy revolved around supervillain Gru who plans to shrink and steal the moon but his evil intentions soon change when he adopts three adorable orphan girls.
