Minions: Rise of Gru will be the summer blockbuster. The second instalment in the Minions franchise and the sixth overall in the Despicable Me franchise hits theatres on July 1st and will be available on Netflix in the United States soon.
This entry, which comes 7 years after the first Minions film, serves as a sort of prequel, telling the “untold story of one twelve-year-dream old’s to become the world’s greatest supervillain.”
Steve Carrell reprises his role as Gru, with Russell Brand, Julie Andrews, Alan Arkin, Michelle Yeoh, RZA, and Jean-Claude Van Damme also appearing.
When is Minions: The Rise of Gru coming to Netflix?
As part of a legacy agreement between Universal and Netflix, Sing 2 was notably added to Netflix (in the United States) in June 2022. Let’s break down Minions: Rise of Gru’s Netflix release because it will follow extremely distinct guidelines.
If we take a look at The Bad Guys, another movie heading to Netflix in this unique way, it just set its Peacock release date and is anticipated to be there later this year. However, it did get to Peacock a little bit later than anticipated; instead of arriving 45 days after its theatrical debut, it did so 70 days later. After the theatrical run, the film spends four months on Peacock, ten months on Netflix, and then another four months on Peacock.
The precise length of Minions: Rise of Gru’s theatrical window is currently unknown, but now that we know when The Bad Guys will be released on Peacock, we can use that date and the early days to approximate it for you!
If the film debuts at the same time as The Bad Guys, it will premiere at Peacock on September 9th, 2022. On November 9th, 2023, depart once more for Peacock after being uploaded on Netflix on January 9th, 2023.
It will premiere on Peacock on August 15, 2023, and then go to Netflix in the middle of December 2022, if the theatrical window is 45 days.
The Secret Life of Pets 2 was available on Netflix in the UK for six months, about two years after movie was released in theatres; if the same holds true here, Minions: Rise of Gru will be accessible in 2024. The same is true for Netflix Canada, despite the fact that they typically only have Illumination movies available for a year.
New Illumination films often arrive on Netflix in Latin America three years after its theatrical release.
