Computer animated films became popular in the 2000s, resulting in a significant increase in the production of these films over the last two decades. However, only a handful of those movies were well received by audiences, including Minions, the fifth entry in the Despicable Me franchise. After the debut of Minions in 2015, the franchise grew in popularity and received good reviews. Minions 2 has been one of the most anticipated movies among fans for the past six years, following the release of its third sequel.
The sequel, Minions: The Rise of Gru, will be released in July 2022. The picture was set to be released in the United States on July 3, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the release date has been pushed back from April 2020 to July 2, 2021. In March 2021, the deadline was moved another year to July 1, 2022.
Kyle Balda will direct Minions: The Rise of Gru, co-directing Brad Ableson and Jonathan del Val. The authors of the film are Brian Lynch and Matthew Fogel. Chris Meledandri, Chris Renaud and Janet Healy co-produce with Chris Meledandri. The following is Illumination Entertainment’s official synopsis for “Minions: The Rise of Gru”:
Gru (Steve Carell) grows up in the suburbs of the 1970s, surrounded by feathered hair and flared jeans. Gru, a fan of the Vicious 6 super villains, devises a plan to become bad enough to join them. Fortunately, he has the help of his devoted slaves, the Minions, in wreaking havoc. Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto – a new Minion with braces and an insane drive to please – team up to build their first den, test their first weapons and complete their first missions.
Gru interviews to join the Vicious 6 after they overthrow their commander, famed fighter Wild Knuckles (Alan Arkin). Things don’t go well (to put it kindly), and it only gets worse when Gru outsmarts them and becomes the deadly adversary of the ultimate evil.
On the run, Gru will seek advice from an unusual source, Wild Knuckles, and discover that even bad men need a little support from their friends. Taraji P. Henson, Michelle Yeoh, Julie Andrews, RZA (Robert Fitzgerald Diggs), Lucy Lawless, Dolph Lundgren, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Danny Trejo, Russell Brand and Alan Arkin also appear in the film. Minions 2 will hit theaters on July 1, 2022. Keep an eye on The Justice Online for the most up-to-date information on animated comedy films.
