This Disney film revives the Old West original series with a new perspective.

After being transformed from a villain into a hero with the help of three adopted girls (Miranda Cosgrove, Dana Gaier and Elsie Kate Fisher), Gru (Steve Carell) returns with his heart turned to mush. He has been recruited by the Anti-Villain League to combat a new villain, Eduardo (Benjamin Bratt) because of his knowledge and experience as a criminal.
