Universal Pictures has debuted a new music video for Despicable Me 3 set to open in theaters on June 30, 2017. The new video’s for the song “There’s Something Special,” one of Pharrell Williams’ contributions to the soundtrack. The two-minute “There’s Something Special” video includes new scenes from the film along with Pharrell’s floating head, which isn’t nearly as bizarre as it sounds.

Despicable Me 3 was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, and co-directed by Eric Guillon. Cinco Paul and Ken Daurio wrote the script, with Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy producing and Chris Renaud executive producing.

The Plot: After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down the latest bad guy to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger shows up to inform Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother—a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps—one former super-villain will rediscover just how good it feels to be bad.

Steve Carell not only reprises his role as Gru, but also takes on a second part—that of Dru, Gru’s long-lost twin. Kristen Wiig returns as super-spy Lucy, while Emmy, Tony and Grammy Award winner Trey Parker voices new villain Balthazar Bratt, a former child star who has become obsessed with the evil TV character he played in the ’80s. Gru’s most formidable and comedic nemesis to date, Bratt is out to take down Hollywood…and anyone who stands in his way.
