This summer, from one of the biggest global animated franchise in history.

And faced off against the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled in Minions: The Rise of Gru

When the infamous supervillain group, the Vicious 6, ousts their leader (legendary martial arts fighter Wild Knuckles). Gru, their most devoted fanboy, interviews to become their newest member. Though The Vicious 6 were not impressed by him, Enraged, Gru outsmarted them, and suddenly found himself as their number one target. With Gru on the run, the Minions attempt to master the art of kung fu to help save him. While Gru discovers that even bad guys need a help from their friends. 

Featuring more spectacular action than any film in Illumination history and packed with the franchise’s signature subversive humor, Minions: The Rise of Gru has a thrilling cast, including, the Vicious 6: Taraji P. Henson as cool and confident leader Belle Bottom, whose chain belt doubles as a lethal disco-ball mace; Jean-Claude Van Damme as the nihilistic Jean Clawed, who’s armed (literally) with a giant robotic claw; Lucy Lawless as Nunchuck, whose traditional nun’s habit hides her deadly nun-chucks; Dolph Lundgren as Swedish roller-skate champion Svengeance, who dispenses his enemies with spin kicks from his spiked skates; and Danny Trejo as Stronghold, whose giant iron hands are both a menace to others and a burden to him.  

The film also stars Russell Brand as Young Dr. Nefario, an aspiring mad scientist, Michelle Yeoh as Master Chow, an acupuncturist with mad kung fu skills, and Julie Andrews as Gru’s maddeningly self-absorbed mom.

Steered by the franchise’s original creators, Minions: The Rise of Gru is produced by visionary Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and his longtime collaborators Janet Healy and Chris Renaud. The film is directed by returning franchise filmmaker Kyle Balda, co-directed by Brad Ableson and Jonathan del Val, and features the iconic voice of Pierre Coffin as the Minions and a killer ’70s soundtrack courtesy of legendary music producer Jack Antonoff.
