What Is ‘Minions Ohe Rise Of Gru’ about? 

We already mentioned that it is a prequel. However, it can also be considered as the sequel to the 2015 film, Minions. The story is about young 12-years-old Gru and is set in the timeframe of the 1970s.

Gru has always been a superfan of the supervillain group, Vicious 6 and he dreamt to be a part of that group after successfully becoming highly evil. But Vicious 6 soon fired their leader, the iconic Wild Knuckles who is a fighter and it was his chance to interview to become one of the members of the group.

As a matter of fact, things didn’t go as planned and later, Gru plans on stealing a precious stone that belonged to the Vicious 6 group. Our favorite minions, Stuart, Bob, Kevin, and Otto along with other minions aid him. Soon, Gru gets his mortal enemy and even Wild Knuckles will come onboard to help Gru.
