    We are yet to receive Minions: The Rise of Gru. The movie is a direct sequel to the 2015 spin-off movie Minions. It had been delayed several times due to the pandemic, and is now set to release on July 2022. The first trailer came out in 2020. The story is as the name suggests – Gru’s rise to become a supervillain. The story takes place in the 1970s and we see Gru trying to be part of the supervillain organization, The Vicious 6. The minions are already fans of the little boy with evil dreams, and decide to assist him.

    Let’s hope the movie wont get delayed again.
