Gru and the Minions are ready bring laughter to the fans in the new Illumination film, Minions: The Rise of Gru. Directed by Kyle Balda, the film will premiere on July 1, 2022 at local cinema networks.
Prior to its current release date, Minions: The Rise of Gru had been delayed twice due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Fans should’ve been able to meet Gru and his yellow army in 2020. However, the delay ended when the film debuted at the Annecy International Animation Film Festival on June 13, 2022. Receiving positive responses, Minions: The Rise of Gru is also finally ready to entertain the masses on the big screen.
The voices of Gru and the Minions in the Despicable Me franchise are iconic and are attractive in itself. That’s why Steve Carell (The Office) will return to his role as the villain Gru. Likewise, Pierre Coffin (Despicable Me) will continue his role in voicing the Minions.
In addition to the two familiar voice actors, several big names also brought the film to life: Taraji P. Henson (Hidden Figures), Michelle Yeoh (Everything Everywhere All at Once), Julie Andrews (The Princess Diaries), and Alan Arkin (Spenser Confidential).

In the 1970s, a 12 year old boy named Gru (Steve Carell) dreams of becoming a super villain. Aided by the Minions (Pierre Coffin), he does a lot of naughty things. Gru himself idolizes a criminal group known as Vicious 6.
When he heard that they were recruiting, Gru immediately took the opportunity by participating in the interview process. Unfortunately, the 12-year-old boy was only laughed at considering his young age.
Gru still doesn’t give up despite being ridiculed. He then steals a mystical stone belonging to Vicious 6 to prove that he can do evil. As a result, he was labeled as the mortal enemy of his idol group.
Things get worse when Gru is kidnapped by the former leader of Vicious 6. The Minions who are saddened by what happened to their mini boss try to save him from all the chasing and kidnapping by criminals. Will the yellow army be able to save Gru?
