Other formats to enjoy this animated feature are 3D, 4DX or the good old 2D.

Hindi dubbing update

Minions The Rise of Gru is officially released in 4 languages in India: English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. Watch the official Hindi trailer here:

One interesting fact here is that Vaibhav Thakkar is dubbing for Gru in the Hindi version. Vaibhav had previously lent his voice to Spider-Man in MCU.

OTT platform and streaming date

While the official date is not announced, we know where it will land. The Rise of Gru will premiere on Peacock streaming service in the USA. Peacock is owned by Universal, who is distributing this film.

Before this, Universal released another animation flick The Sing 2 in India at the end of last year. That later premiered digitally on Prime Video here, but you need to pay extra to rent it.

That’s why it is most probable that the same will happen this time. The OTT platform for Minions Rise of Gru will be Amazon Prime Video in India. The streaming date will be before November of this year.
