Ready to know the cast of Despicable Me 4? Read about the characters and the actors who are playing those characters:

Gru – Steve Carell

Gru - Steve Carell

In the franchise, he is the protagonist Gru, a supervillain, but later, we realize he is a good and helpful person. He ends up adopting three little girls and becomes the perfect father figure to them.

He also becomes genuine by keeping aside villainous tendencies and working with Lucy Wilde, an AVL agent who later falls in love.

Lucy Wilde – Kirsten Wiig

Lucy Wilde - Kirsten Wiig

Working for the Anti-Villain League, agent Lucy Wilde was portrayed by Kirsten Wiig, who debuted in Despicable Me 2. She has become quite popular and in demand among the fans. Her task started with her working towards catching Gru for the AVL!

But she fell for him, and they developed a relationship leading to marriage! They become a happily married couple with three beautiful children and all the minions as their children.

Margo – Miranda Cosgrove

Margo - Miranda Cosgrove

In Despicable Me 4, I am sure Miranda Cosgrove will be playing the role of Margo, the eldest daughter of Gru. As a responsible eldest sister, she has always cared for her other two sisters. She is a little shy but very brave when it comes to the safety of her sisters.

Edith – Dana Gaier

Edith - Dana Gaier

Edith is a tomboy portrayed by Dana Gaier, the middle child of the three sisters. She is one of the coolest characters, especially with her pink beanie; she is the one for chaos and destruction, leading to all kinds of mischief.

Agnes – Nev Scharrel

Agnes - Nev Scharrel

This character is known as Agnes, the youngest of the lot, so considering the character will be growing more, there is a rumor that Nev Sharrel will be portraying this character. The character is the cutest out of all.

She is well known as the first to thaw Gru’s hard demeanor with her naivety! She loves unicorns! Also, she took on the mantle of playing this character in the franchise’s third movie, so we are hoping she will also be in this one.

Pierre Coffin has given his voice to all the Minions in the Despicable Me franchise. So it is normal that Coffin will return for the nonsense-spouting and banana-yellow worker. The employees working under Gru are always helping him, resulting in more chaos.
