After its premiere was delayed twice, finally this summer we will be able to enjoy the famous villain and his cute yellow shorties again. We share the latest trailer, poster and the final date of the premiere of ‘Minions: The Origin of Gru’ (‘Minions: A villain is born’ in Latin America).
The most anticipated prequel
Almost twelve years ago, ‘ Gru: My Favorite Villain ‘ (titled only ‘My Favorite Villain’ in Latin America) was released, marking the beginning of a saga that would conquer young and old thanks to its endearing characters : from Gru, a villain who is actually less malevolent than he seems, right down to the intensely funny Minions, as well as the quirky Margo, Edith and Agnes.
After the success of the first film, two more sequels came to the story of our favorite villain, now as a family man, and later a spin-off prequel dedicated exclusively to the Minions, in which we learned the story of these cute characters. Check out more at our Prince Blog.
A little over two years ago, they announced that it was time to tell God’s story , however its release date has been reset twice . The first time, due to the pandemic, and the second time (and after announcing that it would be one of the children’s premieres of 2021 ) because its producer decided that it would be best to wait another year.
