‘Minions 3’ Will March Into Theaters in June 2027 5

That didn’t take long.

Fresh off the successful box office debut of Despicable Me 4, Illumination and Universal announced plans for Minions 3, which has landed a release date of June 30, 2027.

Written by Brian Lynch (MinionsThe Secret Life of Pets films), Minions 3 will be directed by veteran Despicable Me/Minions helmer Pierre Coffin, who has also provided the voice for the Minions since their film debut in 2010.

The film will be produced by Illumination founder and CEO Chris Meledandri and Bill Ryan, who exec produced The Super Mario Bros. Movie

More than ten years after their creation, Illumination trumpets the Minions as becoming the most iconic animated characters of their generation who have helped Illumination’s Despicable Me and Minions movies to a global box office of almost $5 billion. 

The franchise includes Minions, one of the highest-grossing animated films of all time, as well as the Oscar nominated Despicable Me 2 and Despicable Me 3, which each made more than $1 billion at the global box office.

In 2022, Minions: The Rise of Gru shattered box office records with the highest grossing July Fourth opening weekend in domestic history. This year’s Despicable Me 4 confirmed the Minions have plenty of life left on the big screen when opening to $230 million worldwide.
