If you also love these cute yellow creatures with funny voices and wit, then you must have been part of the Despicable Me family. Despicable Me is one of the largest animation franchises that owns over $3.7 billion at the global box office. Produced by Illumination under the parent company Universal Pictures, Despicable Me is an animated film centering “Gru,” a supervillain and his little yellow Minions. The first-ever Despicable Me was released in 2010 and had two sequels, Despicable Me 2 and Despicable Me 3. It also has two spin-off prequels: Minions (the 2015 film) and the upcoming Minions: The Rise of Gru, about which we will talk about in this article.
The fans of Despicable Me have been waiting since 2015 when the first Minions movie was released. Minions: The Rise of Gru was supposed to release in 2020 but got delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic till 2021, and now the news says that it is coming next year. Let us see what we have.
Minions: The Rise Of Gru: Release Date
The sequel of the 2015 film Minions was supposed to release on July 3, 2020, but the coronavirus pandemic shifted it to July 2, 2021, which we cannot see happening. As a result, Illumination has announced that this movie will release in the theatres next July, i.e., July 1, 2022.
However, with the ongoing situation, we do not know if that is for sure. A lot can happen in a year. Thus, we should keep our fingers crossed and hope that we get to see the adventures of minions and Gru next year for sure.
Minions: The Rise of Gru: Cast Members
Ever since the Despicable Me franchise is out, we mainly have familiar voices. So, we suppose this time we also get the same voiceovers featuring Minions, Gru, Gru’s mother, and other characters.
Pierre Coffin will voice our beloved Minions Stuart, Kevin, Bob, and others.
Since Minions is a prequel to Despicable Me, we will have Gru as a kid, and this time the legendary Steve Carell will be achieving the voice of kid Gru.
The most notable, witty, and funny character of Gru’s mother, Marlena Gru, will be done by Julie Andrews. We will see Russell Brand again as the voice of Dr. Nefarious, the great inventor and Gru’s most prominent partner.
Other cast members will be Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, Jean Claude Van Damme, Lucy Lawless, Dolph Lundgren, and Danny Trejo.
Minions: The Rise of Gru: what is the plot?
Gru is an aspiring supervillain which does not happen in the first film as he tries and fails many attempts. In the sequel, we expect God to do the same as he wants to become part of The Vicious 6, a prevalent villain group. As their leader leaves the group Gru sees it as an opportunity for him to be the supervillain.
However, when he auditions for the same, he gets rejected, and to show his potential to the group, he steals a very precious stone from them, but to his goofiness, he trusts the precious stone to Otto, one of his Minions.
Even after an explicit instruction by Gru for returning the stone, Otto decides to trade the precious stone with a pet rock along the way.
Now in the sequel, we are expecting the same failures of Gru to be the supervillain, the energetic comedy by Minions, and the rise of Gru as a supervillain. Also, it would be interesting to see if The Vicious 6 accepts Gru, or he will rise on his potential. Not to forget about the precious stone; we do not know what will happen with it. However, as the movie arrives, there is a lot to gather from it.
Minions: The Rise of Gru: Official Trailer
As the movie was initially supposed to be released in July 2020, its full-length trailer was released in May 2020. Since it has been a year and the movie will take another year for release, we are expecting many trailers coming along in a year. Till then, you can watch the most recent trailer to get insights and whereabouts about your favorite Minions and the story of kid Gru.
We will update this article as soon as we get any news about the trailers, official release date, or the potential plot of the film.
