The minions are finally back, baby.
Originally slated for release in 2020, Minions: The Rise of Gru was scheduled to hit theaters on the 10th anniversary of 2010 Despicable Mebut was soon postponed to 2021. Then the Delta tribe came along and messed up those plans and pushed Minions: The Rise of Gru until 2022.
The Despicable Me franchise is officially the highest-grossing animated franchise of all time, a record it’s sure to hold The Rise of Gru should come to the cinemas.
The new movie is a prequel that takes us back to the 1970s, where we meet young Gru who is determined to become the world’s most successful supervillain.
Judging by the trailer, the film seems not only intended for children, but to be fun for the whole family.
Millennial parents everywhere will recognize the very familiar tune of “Lose Yourself,” which Eminem wrote for 8 miles Back in 2002, the rapper even won an Oscar for it, and while he wasn’t at the ceremony to collect his award in person at the time, he happened to show up at the 2020 Academy Awards to perform the song live.
Is there anything that lets millennials everywhere know they’re old more than an Eminem song licensed for a children’s movie? Maybe not, but hey, it’s still an iconic song TBH!
