With the release of the latest version of the Facebook mobile app, users can now take advantage of the new Facebook Camera feature to fulfill their dreams of becoming a Minion! That’s right, after updating their app, you’ll be able to swipe left to right from the newsfeed or tap on the camera icon on the top left corner to activate the new addition to the social media platform in order to use and share an exclusive Despicable Me 3 Minions Mask.
The new camera feature allows people to get creative and use special effects and filters in real time with their photos and video to share their stories to the world. Fans can already get their hands (or faces?) on the new Minions special effect and there will be more filters added for future films and guest artists that will be continuously updated within the app moving forward.
Illumination, who brought audiences Despicable Me and the biggest animated hits of 2013 and 2015, Despicable Me 2 and Minions, continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, their adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions in Despicable Me 3. Directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, co-directed by Eric Guillon and written by Cinco Paul & Ken Daurio, the animated film is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and executive produced by Chris Renaud.
Joining Steve Carell and Kristen Wiig in Despicable Me 3 is Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker, co-creator of Comedy Central’s global phenomenon South Park and the Broadway smash The Book of Mormon. Parker voices the role of villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who’s grown up to become obsessed with the character he played in the ‘80s, and proves to be Gru’s most formidable nemesis to date. The film will be released in theaters on June 30, 2017.
