Minions: The Rise of Gru Becomes Despicable: the Italian premiere at the Taormina Film Fest

The 68th edition of the Taormina Film Fest wins the national premiere of Minions 2 – Come Gru Becomes Despicable, an animated film that will be screened on June 30 at the Greek Theater. It will be presented by Max Giusti, Gru’s Italian voice.


The very nice and impertinent Minions, whom we met thanks to Despicable me, will arrive at the Taormina Film Fest 2022, which will be held from 26 June to 2 July in the beautiful Sicilian town, under the direction of journalists and critics Alessandra De Luca, Federico Pontiggia and Francesco Alò.

Minions 2 – Come Gru Becomes Despicable will be presented in national preview at the Greek Theater on the evening of June 30, and then debut in our cinemas on August 18. The film premiere will be preceded by a special introduction by Max Giusti, who, for the fifth time the Italian voice of the evil Gru, will interact with the Minions in a 3D hologram.

The three directors of the 68th edition of the Taormina Film Fest are delighted to have the film. And in fact they said:

We would like to thank Illumination and Universal who have granted the screening of Minions 2 – Come Gru becomes very bad for an audience of all ages at the Ancient Theater, an exciting experience for the Taormina Film Fest (…) This new chapter of the sample animation saga revenue, inaugurated in 2010 by Despicable Me, is yet another confirmation of the excellent quality of an editorial line under the guidance of Chris Meledandri, founder and CEO of Illumination.

Minions 2 – How Gru Becomes Despicable tells the origins of the story in which the greatest supervillain in the world meets the Minions for the first time, forms the most despicable troop in the cinema and faces the most unstoppable criminal force ever assembled.

Long before he became the lord of evil, Gru (Max Giusti) is just a 12-year-old from the suburbs plotting to take over the world from his basement.

But he’s not doing particularly well. When Gru runs into the Minions, including Kevin, Stuart, Bob and Otto – a new Minion sporting braces and a desperate need to please – this unlikely family joins forces. Together, they build their first lair, design their first weapons, and strive to complete their first missions.

When the infamous supervillain supergroup, the Evil 6, hunts down their leader, the legendary Wild Knuckles martial arts fighter, Gru, their most die-hard fanboy, interviewed to become their newest member. At first, the Evil 6 were not impressed by the tiny, aspiring villain, but then Gru outsmarted them (and infuriated them) and suddenly became the archenemy of the worst villains in the world. With Gru on the run, the Minions try to learn the art of kung fu to save him, and Gru discovers that even the bad guys need a little help from their friends.
