The Animated Series Minions is back with a seqeuel. Well technically it is a prequel to the last movie so yep ! Despicable Me came out in 2015 and Rise of Gru shall be it’s prequel. It yet again directed by Kyle Balda and like all previous movies produced by Illumination. The audience loved the cute minions and their quirky sense of humor. The creators also thought that prequel would be a great way of introducting the backstory of Gru and giving them more of the Minions as well. Here is all we know about the movie :

Release Date

Initially the movie was all set to release on 3 July this year. But then the Pandemic led to the delay in the release. The Global shutdown led to all movies and studios getting shut down. Thus the movie is now postponed and scheduled to come out a year later on 2 July, 2021.


The cast of the movie is out and here it is : Pierre Coffin as Kevin, Stuart, Bob, Otto, and the Minions.  Steve Carell as Felonius Gru, Taraji P. Henson as Belle Bottom. Jean-Claude Van Damme as Jean Clawed , Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow. Lucy Lawless

as Nunchuck, Dolph Lundgren as Vengeance, Danny Trejo as Stronghold.


The movie would revolve around 1970s Gru. He is twelve years old living in the rural suburbs. It shows how as a kid he was taken by the supervillain Vicious 6. And he came up with plans to join their evil team. Though after interviewing with them he couldn’t score the spot. He rather ended up getting made fun of. This leads him to made an evil team of his own. And his biggest enemies are the Vicious 6. This becomes more epic cause it is a small boy again some major evil hotshots.

A trailer for the movie has already been dropped. If you haven’t seen it already you should. It is but again cuteness overloaded. We shall keep you posted with all new updates. Until then Stay Tuned.
