Everyone’s favorite supervillain- Gru- and his mischievous but lovable hench creatures- the Minions- are back on our screens with the fifth installation of the Despicable Me animation franchise-Minions: The Rise of Gru.

This time, we get to see Gru’s backstory and how he met the minions. We are transported to the 1970s where a pre-teen Gru obsesses over a nefarious gang called ‘The vicious 6’. They’re infamous for causing trouble around San Francisco and socially awkward Gru feels like he’s found his tribe.

Watch as hilarity ensues when Gru and the minions struggle to prove themselves to The Vicious 6 and what valuable lessons they learn along the way. 

Gru and the Minions will be on the big screen 1st of July. This movie makes for great family viewing and you can get tickets through KenyaBuzz.
