The Rise of Gru: Trailer Breakdown
After the release of Despicable Me, Gru has turned out to be one of the most beloved cartoon characters of all time. With the release of this movie, the creator wants to highlight the journey of how Gru turned evil. The trailer takes us back to the time when the evil boss, Gru, was just a little kid.

This was the start of Gru’s plan to take over the world and design various weapons. All this hard work, just to execute their first super mission of getting into the infamous supervillain supergroup.
Gru above the Vicious 6?
Despite all this hard work, Gru fails to impress the evil bosses of the Vicious 6. The diminutive, small villain finds his way to outsmart and enrage them. Gru steals a precious stone from the gang and therefore claims his victory over them. But to his surprise, Otto, the smallest minion, manages to lose the stone.

In the meantime, Gru is abducted by the Vicious 6, and the minions’ mission shifts from finding the stone to saving Gru. This leads to the hilarious and amusing adventure of the minions in order to save Gru.
With Gru on the run, the Minions try to learn kung fu in order to save him. During his capture, Gru learns a lesson that even evil folks need a little aid from their pals. The teaser assures us that Minions: The Rise of Gru will be 100% fun, with the franchise’s classic comedy, a touch of vintage artwork, and over-the-top action sequences.
