Minions: The Rise of Gru, the movie that started one of the biggest TikTok trends of 2022, has found a new home on Netflix. It was added to the site on January 30, 2023.
The animated 2010 hit Despicable Me has a prequel called Minions: The Rise of Gru. Kyle Balda directed it. It tells how 12-year-old Gru wanted to be the best supervillain in the world and how he met his famous Minions for the first time. Part of the plot summary, as teased by Minions2Me, says:
“A fanboy of a supervillain supergroup known as the Vicious 6, Gru hatches a plan to become evil enough to join them. Luckily, he gets some mayhem-making back-up from his loyal followers, the Minions.”
Even though it doesn’t start on Netflix for a few more days, we thought we’d look closely at the people who voice the animated characters.
