Release of the animated movie Minions: The Rise of Gru is postponed by one year. The sequel to Minions The 2015 release would actually be out on July 3, 2020, but this will be moved to July 2, 2021, reports Variety.
Filmstudio Universal announced earlier this month that the July release date would not be met due to the outbreak of the corona virus. Post-production of the film was still in full swing in a studio in France, but had to be shut down by government measures to curb the spread of the virus.
The film was scheduled to be released in July, as holidays in America make it one of the most frequented movie theaters. The makers therefore chose to release the film around the same time, but in 2021.
The Minionsmovies are a spin-off of the Despicable Mefilm series in which the small yellow accomplices of criminal Gru also appear.
