Minions: The Rise of Gru is the Title of the 2020 Sequel

-

Universal Pictures has announced that the Minions sequel will be titled Minions: The Rise of Gru. The film will be released on its previously-announced date of Friday, July 3, 2020.

The first film, which is a spin-off prequel to the Despicable Me franchise, earned an impressive $1.159 billion at the worldwide box office in 2015. It is still ranked No. 19 on the all-time worldwide box office list.


With the title Minions: The Rise of Gru (a play on Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker?) it would make sense that Steve Carell returns as the voice of Gru in some capacity, but we’ll have to wait and see how it plays out.

In the first film, Minions have served (and accidentally eliminated) history’s most despicable villains. After their latest explosive mistake leaves them without an evil leader, the Minions fall into a deep depression. With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes—Kevin, Stuart, and Bob—embark on a journey to find a new big boss.

When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind… from annihilation.


Minions was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda from a script by Brian Lynch. The producers were Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy. Chris Renaud served as executive producer.
