Universal City, California, August 23, 2022 – The biggest global animated franchise in history adds an all-new laugh-out-loud gru-vy movie in Illumination’s MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU, available to own with over 60 minutes of despicably entertaining bonus features on Digital August 30, 2022, and 4K UHD, Blu-rayTM and DVD September 6, 2022, from Universal Pictures Home Entertainment.

Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru is just a 12-year-old boy in 1970s suburbia, plotting to take over the world from his basement. When the infamous supervillain group, the Vicious 6, ousts their leader, Gru attempts to join their ranks but soon finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil. With Gru on the run, the Minions attempt to learn martial arts to help save him, and Gru discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.

My Thoughts:

Although this is less Despicable Me and more “Minions,” it lives up to every bit of the hype. The adorable little minions are up to their frolicking and hilarity. So much fun for people of all ages. We have four generations in our family, and everyone has watched it multiple times. I highly encourage you to enjoy the film also!
