You Can Now Watch ‘Minions: Rise Of Gru’ Online. Here’s How.

I’ll admit. I didn’t want to see it at first. Afterall, it’s a kids’ movie, right?!!? WRONG!!

Minions: Rise of Gru is one of the hit movies of the summer, and should be on everyone’s must-watch list.

It was cute, hilarious, and it seriously held my attention — and more importantly — it kept my kids enthralled and quiet!

NOW, you can watch Minions: Rise of Gru online, and you can bet it will be on at my house today!

This film is a sequel — no wait, it’s a prequel — that’s not right either. It’s a spinoff (?) of the Despicable Me movie franchise.

Whatever it is — the little henchmen that we all know and love are back!!

And, this time we get a peek into the world of Gru (the mini boss) before he became the Gru we learned to love in the OG Despicable Me.

Now you can have a ‘GentleMinion’ party of your own, right in the comfort of your own home!!

Fans of those little yellow henchmen can expect Minions: Rise of Gru to hit streaming platforms in the next month or two.

It will drop first onto Peacock, where it will live out its window of exclusivity.

Once it is available, you can probably expect to find it on Netflix or HBO Max — but don’t quote us on that.

To watch [the OG] Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2 on Peacock, you’ll need a Peacock Premium subscription, which costs $4.99.

I’m going to go ahead and drop the money on a subscription to Peacock. That way, I’ll be all ready for the release of Minions: Rise of Gru to hit the streaming service.
