Check out our list below for all the info you need before Minions: The Rise of Gru hits theatres in June 2022!
What is the storyline for Minions: The Rise of Gru?
In Minions: The Rise of Gru, a sinister character named Scarlet Overkill is set to take over the world, and it’s up to our three lovable Minions – Kevin, Bob, and Stuart-to try their best to stop her. But when they find out that she’s also after Gru (who has lost his memory), they have some big decisions to make…
Bobby Moynihan explains the plot of Minions: The Rise of Gru.
“Gru has a wife, who he’s lost his memory to Lucy Wilde (Sandra Bullock). She is currently in charge, and she is super sweet.”
Lucy hands over her job as CEO to Captain Smek (Steve Carell), but that doesn’t go well, so Stuart goes on “a journey with Kevin – voiced by Pierre Coffin-to find out what happened.” They meet Scarlet Overkill (Scarlett Johansson) and Herb Overkill, who want help from Gru for their villainy plans. So they travel back to England, where we will see Silas Ramsbottom (Coogan) and Edith Felton (Mirielle Enos), and the Minions find out that Scarlet is after Gru.
“Scarlet gets her hands on a shrink ray, which she plans to use for world domination.”
Who are the voice actors?
We’re excited for you all to meet Scarlett Johansson as Scarlet Overkill! She’ll be joined by Pierre Coffin, who will return as both director AND voice artist on this project. Plus amazing supporting cast including Sandra Bullock, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, and Steve Coogan! We can’t wait till it’s in theatres!
Scarlet Overkill will be portrayed by Scarlett Johansson.
Pierre Coffin, the voice and director of Minions, is returning for this project.
Sandra Bullock will play a villain named Queen Elizabeth II (yep!) who was once married to Gru before he lost his memory and left her for Lucy Wilde – also played by Sandra Bullock.
The movie has an incredible supporting cast, including Michael Keaton as Herb Overkill, Allison Janney as Edith Felton, Steve Coogan as Silas Ramsbottom…

How long is the trailer for Minions: The Rise of Grü?
The full-length teaser trailer lasts about a minute and forty seconds, with just over fifty thousand views so far!
It features; an exclusive look; at some scenes; from the film and introduces; us to their new antagonist; Herb Overkill (played by Michael Keaton), as well as Edith Felton’s; first appearance, where she has her eye removed; with a knife; whilst being broadcast; live on TV. Here are some other notable moments; that caught our attention; during this short; but sweet; preview, as seen in the trailer.
Nope, not to mention; that Gru is doing some more villainy; on his own, like robbing banks and stealing crowns from queens, for example!
The plot focuses on how her twin brother supervillain Benjamin (voiced by Steve Carell) has been recruited to help out the other villains at Villain Con – that’s where they go to meet each other so that they can do evil together. He tries his best to create something new, which unfortunately falls flat with almost all of them there for their annual convention, except for one – the mastermind and all-around evil genius, Dr. Nefario (voiced by Russell Brand).
Gru is recruited to help out with a heist at Villain Con because his diminutive size makes him perfect for getting through tight spaces. He also gets roped into designing an invention that will allow villains around the world to finally take over! The machine winds up being really big, so it’s not suitable for Gru but instead becomes something of a side project that he works on in between supervillain hijinks.
