Minions: The Rise of Gru


Minions, little yellow pill shaped creatures who communicate in their own gibberish language. Shockingly, the cute yellow creatures who eat bananas were originally going to be designed as robots! The illustrator Eric Gullion thought of them as little short human workers but eventually came up with Minions who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from yellow single-celled organisms into beings which exist to only serve history’s most evil masters, but ironically they end up killing all their masters including a T. Rex, a caveman, a Pharaoh, and Count Dracula. The Rise of Gru will be the fourth Despicable Me movie coming out on July 1, 2022.

Following young Gru (Steve Carell) who tries to join the Vicious 6 right after they kick out their group leader, Wild Knuckles. When the interview goes wrong, Gru and his Minions are on the run with the Vicious 6 on their tail, following them everywhere they go. Luckily Gru finds a source for guidance from the legendary Wild Knuckles himself. With help from Wild Knuckles and his trusty Minions, he soon discovers that even bad guys need a little help from their friends sometimes.
