When Is The Rise Of Gru Coming Out On Netflix

Minions: Rise of Gru will be the blockbuster of the summer. The second installment in the Minions franchise and the sixth overall in the Despicable Me franchise will hit theaters on July 1 and will soon be available on Netflix in the United States. This entry, which comes 7 years after the first Minions movie, serves as a prequel of sorts, telling “the untold story of a twelve-year-old boy who dreams of becoming the world’s greatest supervillain.” Steve Carrell reprises his role as Gru, starring Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Alan Arkin, Michelle Yeoh, RZA, and Jean-Claude Van Damme.

When will “Minions: Rise Of Gru” arrive on Netflix US?

US Netflix viewers are in for a treat thanks to Netflix’s new deal with Universal. Under the deal, Illumination movies will continue to arrive on Netflix’s US site. The 2021 musical Sing 2 was made available to stream on Netflix in June 2022 as part of Netflix’s legacy deal with Universal.
