So far, we are still eagerly awaiting the animated sequel "Minions – The Rise of Gru", which has been postponed several times and is scheduled to hit theaters next July. Universal Pictures and Illumination have now jointly announced that they are already hard at work on further sequels from the "Minions" universe. Accordingly, the fourth part of the "Despicable Me" series around the villain Gru is already being planned. However, the movie will not be released for over two years on July 3, 2024 – certainly with great hope on the part of those responsible, after the first three parts have grossed over 2.5 billion US dollars worldwide. Director Chris Renaud, who also supervised the first two movies, is responsible for the suitable realization, while the script will be from "Emoji Movie" author Mike White. Illumination is also working on another animated movie called "Migration", which is scheduled for release in June 2023. It's about a duck family that wants to spend the vacation of a lifetime together far away from home.
