Minions Rise of the Gru Release Postponed
The release of Illumination's MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU has been postponed.
The film's release date of July 3, 2020 has been delayed with no word yet on a new one.
"In response to the severity of the situation in France, we are temporarily closing our Illumination Mac Guff studio in Paris. With this decision we are abiding by the French Government's guidelines and doing everything possible to slow the spread of the virus as we care for our artists and their families. This means we will be unable to finish MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU in time for our planned global releases in late June and early July. While we all grapple with the enormity of this crisis, we must put the safety and protection of our employees above all. We look forward to finding a new release date for the return of Gru and the Minions," said Chris Meledandri, Founder and CEO of Illumination.
