(Pocket-lint) - There's no shortage of love for Minions, from their first appearance in Despicable Me with another movie confirmed for 2024.

But thanks to a TikTok trend, some found that their visit to the movie theatre to watch The Rise of Gru was plagued by kids dressed in suits - not always a bad thing - with reports of these Gentleminions disrupting fellow movie watchers. Social media, huh?

Thankfully, we live in the age of streaming, so watching Minions: The Rise of Gru at home bypasses that Gentleminion risk, unless, of course, you want to dress up at home to watch it yourself.

Minions: The Rise of Gru release date

The movie released at the cinema on 1 July 2022. 

Minions: The Rise of Gru: Where to stream

You can now rent or buy Minions: The Rise of Gru on Amazon Video.

We're expecting Minions: The Rise of Gru to become available on Peacock at some point in the future, before doing a turn on Netflix and then returning to Peacock. Peacock costs $4.99 a month in the US.
