The Minions Are Back In A Sequel To The Prequel
Minions: The Rise Of Gru is set to hit theatres on July 3, 2020.
Written by Brian Lynch, the movie will be a direct continuation of the 2015 film. It will focus on the minions’ adventures with a despicable, 12-year-old Gru who dreams of becoming the world’s greatest supervillain.
Set in the heart of the 1970s, amid a flurry of feathered hair and flared jeans, Gru is growing up in the suburbs. As a huge fan of the Vicious 6 (a notorious group of supervillains), Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily his loyal, mayhem-causing minions are there to help. Kevin, Stuart, Bob, Otto (a new minion with braces) and the rest of the gang help Gru to build his first lair, experiment with weapons and carry out his first missions.
