This summer, discover the origin story of how the world's greatest supervillain first met his iconic Minions, forged cinemas most despicable crew, and faced off against the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled.
Long before he becomes the master of evil, Gru's just a twelve-year-old boy in the seventies, plotting to take over the world from his basement. It's not going particularly well. Until Gru joins forces with the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto. Together, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and execute their first missions.
When the infamous supervillain supergroup, the Vicious 6, oust their leader, Gru, their most devoted fanboy, interviews to become their newest member. But, the Vicious 6 isn't impressed by the diminutive, wannabe villain and, after outsmarting and enraging them, Gru suddenly finds himself the mortal enemy of the apex of evil.
With Gru on the run, the Minions turn to an unlikely source in their daring attempt to save him, and Gru learns that even bad guys need a little help from their friends.
