MINIONS: RISE OF GRU Has Now Been Pushed Back A Full Year To July 2, 2021

Universal has re-dated two animated movies, one of which was originally scheduled to arrive in theaters this summer. Minions: Rise of Gru has been moved to 2021, while Sing 2 will now release in December.

Universal recently announced that Trolls World Tour would be sent straight to streaming, but Minions: Rise of Gru will not be following suit.

Originally set to hit theaters on July 3, 2020, the animated adventure will now arrive on July 2, 2021. That date had been reserved for Illumination's Sing 2, so that's been pushed to December 22, 2021. Of course, shuffling releases like this doesn't always leave any prime dates free, and the studio has now taken big-screen Broadway adaptation Wicked off the schedule entirely.

When upcoming releases first began to be postponed because of coronavirus concerns, it was assumed that the summer season would be salvaged, but that's obviously not going to happen. Fans were hopeful that Marvel's Black Widow would still hit theaters this year, but it's looking increasingly likely that the Lethal Avenger's first (and last) solo outing will be pushed back to 2021 along with Mulan. Analysts believe that Warner Bros. was too optimistic with Wonder Woman 1984's new August release date, so that may also be delayed until next year.

We'll hopefully get some kind of update from Disney and WB soon, but if you've been planning an MCU or DCEU re-watch, it's probably a good time!
