If Americans learned one thing last July 4th weekend, it’s that henchmen, not the government, run the country. After a meteoric opening at the box office, when Minions: The Rise of Gru be available on Blu-ray and DVD?
The sequel to 2015 Minions follows a 12-year-old Gru’s journey to becoming one of the world’s greatest supervillains. Steve Carrell takes over the voice of Gru, the character he made famous in the Despicable Me franchise. With the help of the minions, Gru steals a gem from the villainous group, the Vicious 6, and must team up with Wild Knuckles, voiced by Alan Arkin, to survive.
As mentioned earlier, to say that Americans flooded the box office with this film would be an understatement. The following opened to a record $125 million domestically according to Deadline. Families love minions, plain and simple.
As the film begins its theatrical release, when will this animated adventure be heading to Blu-ray and DVD?
Predictions Blu-ray and DVD Minions: The Rise of Gru
As of July 6, there was no official release date for Blu-ray and DVD. The movie can only be seen in theaters, so check your local listings or an app like AMC for showtimes.
If you’re waiting for the movie to be released on streaming before buying it on Blu-ray and DVD, Minions: The Rise of Gru will be heading to Peacock within the first four months of its release date (July 1). It will stream on Peacock for four months, then head to Netflix for the next 10.
If you want to buy the movie on Blu-ray and DVD, we can consider a similar release as a plan. The villainsan animated film from Universal Pictures, was released in theaters on April 22, then went to Blu-ray/DVD on June 21. Whether Minions 2 follows the same pattern, expect the film to be available on Blu-ray and DVD in September.
Once an official release date is announced, we will update this post!
