Minions: The Rise of Gru is the story of where it all began. We have Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, Despicable Me 3 and Minions, so it's about time we get an origin story for our (once) main character who was quickly over-shadowed by the popularity of his sidekicks. Small, yellow, manic-driven creatures who love bananas flock to the most evil person they can find. So how do they end up with a twelve year old boy (named Gru) with a Russian accent?

Minions: The Rise of Gru is set shortly after the events of the first Minions movie. It's the 1970's and a young boy has just made off with the Queen's crown.
