In a promotional video to celebrate the American release of Minions 2 – How Gru Gets Bad (with us at the cinema on August 18) and the extended episodes of The Office series, the characters give life to a fun crossover with the Steve Carell show .
The new hilarious chapter of the Minions’ adventures, or the prequel, will arrive at the cinema on August 18 Minions 2 – How Gru becomes very bad. As it is known, Steve Carell gives the voice to Gru in the original version (with us he is the very good Max Giusti). But that’s not the only reason why Illumination has just released a promotional video that crosses the world of the irresistible yellow creatures and their dad. The video was in fact made to celebrate the American release of the film and the “extended superfan” episodes of The Office, which only stream in America on Peacock. So what better time to bring these two fun worlds together?
Minions 2 – How Gru becomes Despicable: the plot
The twelve-year-old Gru in the seventies grows up in the suburbs of the city, nurturing a great passion for the Vicious 6, or Malefic 6, a group of supervillains. The young man aspires to become one of them, so when one of the leaders of the evil group is fired, Gru shows up for interviews to replace him. Unfortunately, however, the selections do not go as he hopes, the Malefic 6 consider him only a child and initially they are not at all impressed by him. But determined to become a true supervillain, Gru enacts an evil plan and steals a stone from the Evil 6, who immediately go after him to recover the artifact. As an aspiring member of the evil group, the 12-year-old becomes their enemy number 1 and, in an attempt to distract his opponents by running away, entrusts a Minion with the stone. But what happens when the careless Minion accidentally loses the coveted stone?
