Illumination was just a scrappy underdog animation studio until they came up with the first Despicable Me movie — then they became superstars with enough clout to court clients like Nintendo. But hits on that level are hard to reach twice….thus the sequels. Since none of you paid to see Migration last December, they have no choice but to trot Gru out again for a fourth Despicable Me later this year.
Minions: Rise of Gru will be gracing our Cinemas this July first. This prequel is set in the 1970s, that why Gru is still a child. Steve Carell will reprise his role as Gru, but he altered his voice to sound more childlike. Also returning is Russell Brand, who plays a much younger Dr. Nefario. These star-studded casts are Taraji P. Henson, Lucy Lawless, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dolph Lundgren, Dolph Lundgren, and Julie Andrews.
Minions 2: The Rise of Gru is the sequel of the spin-off and Prequel of Despicable Me. After their relationship with the villainess Scarlet Overkill didn’t work, the minions finally found the boss they are looking for. As revealed in the first film, The Minions are immortal creatures that have been around since the beginning of the Earth. All they wanted is to find an evil boss to serve. For Thousands of centuries, the boss they are looking for either died or always fail to pass their standards. Now they found a Young Gru. Fans who watched Despicable Me know that he will be a successful Supervillain that the minions will serve wholeheartedly.
