With the school holidays fast approaching it’s time to rev up the kids to see the ever-lovable Minions in the first Despicable Me movie in seven years.

In chapter four, Gru, the world’s favourite supervillain turned Anti-Villain League agent, returns for an exciting, bold new era of Minions mayhem in Illumination’s Despicable Me 4.

Following the 2022 blockbuster phenomenon of Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru, the biggest global animated franchise in history now begins a new chapter as Gru (Steve Carell) and Lucy (Kristen Wiig) and their girls – Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Madison Polan) – welcome a new member to the Gru family, Gru Jr., who is intent on tormenting his dad.

Gru faces a new nemesis in Maxime Le Mal (Will Ferrell) and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina (Sofia Vergara), and the family is forced to go on the run.

The film features fresh new characters voiced by Joey King, Stephen Colbert and Chloe Fineman. Pierre Coffin returns as the iconic voice of the Minions and Steve Coogan returns as Silas Ramsbottom.

The story begins following an escape from incarceration by Maxime Le Mal and his girlfriend Valentina who are seeking revenge on Gru and his family, including his baby son, Gru Jr., In relocation for their protection, Gru’s family meet their new neighbours, the Prescotts, and their daughter Poppy. In a way to even the odds, Gru and his Minions ally with Poppy.
