How to stream and watch Minions: The Rise of Gru:

Despite Minions: The Rise of Gru just coming out in theaters on July 1, we have some good news — it's currently available to stream online! But there's one catch: You can only watch Minions: The Rise of Gru if you rent or buy the movie.

That said, since the movie is distributed by Universal, there's a very good chance it will make its way to Peacock soon. This is due to a deal the production studio made with NBC's streamer in July 2021 allowing all of its projects to stream on the platform first. Once it's lived on Peacock for a little while, Minions: The Rise of Gru could become available to watch on other streamers like Hulu or Netflix.

But how can you watch Minions: The Rise of Gru right now? If you're willing to spend the money, Amazon Prime Video, Apple TV+, YouTube, Google Play and Vudu have it available to rent starting at $19.99. If you add ten more dollars, then you can own it forever too.

If you're willing to wait for the movie to arrive on Peacock, then you can sign up for a free account right now. It's important to note that the movie will be categorized as a premium feature, meaning you'll need to eventually upgrade to a different plan, which begins at $4.99 a month.
