Minions: The Rise of Gru (July 3, 2020)

Universal, never one to pass on something that makes them money, have set a release date for the second Minions movie and fifth installment overall in the Despicable Me franchise.

https://deadline.com/2019/05/minions...te-1202620140/

Universal and Illumination have set on a title for the sequel to their hit 2015 animated film Minions, itself a spinoff of the Despicable Me franchise. The latest film, now titled Minions: The Rise of Gru, had already set a July 3, 2020 release date.

The title suggests the plot could be an origin story of sorts involving Gru, the Steve Carell-voiced supervillian who has anchored the franchise since the start. Gru appeared as a young boy who eventually plays a big part in the machinations of Minions, which served as an origin story for the little yellow henchmen. No plot or casting details for the sequel have been confirmed yet.

They waited this long to announce a title and then didn't explain why they named it that? Weird.

But I applaud their where-with-all to know you can't just have the Minions all the time, you need a real character in there somewhere.

Yeesh. Honestly, what's wrong with just what we got in the original "Despicable Me"?

I mean it's not any different than the first Minions movie. It was the minions interacting with other characters. This one will just be more about Gru apparently which makes sense given the end of the first one.

I don't mind the first Minions movie and the ending was cute even if a bit strange that kid Gru suddenly has the Minions. But considering that by the time of the first movie Gru is more or less just "self-attested evil" and not even that good at it (considering how he has to do the "steal the moon" plan to get reputation), I really just don't think I want to see how this turns out.

At least let Dr. Nefario be in this, though. I know he wasn't in 3 but if this is Gru's origins at least let him meet or find a connection that leads to Nefario if this circles back to the first movie.

The last two movies in the franchise were kind of let downs. Minions felt like it was missing... something. I can't put my finger on it, but it was just like it wasn't as good as it should have been. DM3 felt like a t.v. pilot for a Nickelodeon series, it didn't feel, I don't know, theatrical? Maybe 5 will be good, but they really need to get back to the epic feel of the first two.
