Answer to Trivia

In Despicable Me 3, we learn that Gru and his twin brother Dru hail from the fictional Europea country of Freedonia. If the name of the country sounds familiar, then it's a good bet that you're a fan of the Marx brothers.

In the 1933 film Duck Soup, Groucho Marx plays a dictator of the fictional country of Freedonia. So, I guess it begs the question, is the use of Freedonia simply an homage or are Dru and Gru related to Rufus T. Firefly?

Maybe we will get the answer in Despicable Me 4. For now, Despicable Me 3 is new this week on 4K UHD, Blu-ray and DVD.
