Since they first appeared in 2010’s Despicable Me, the Minions have become global icons, infiltrating pop culture in a meaningful way.

“Like the Minions themselves, our Happy Meals are playful and nostalgic with inter-generational appeal. With our Despicable Me 4 Happy Meal, we’re taking that fun, feel-good experience to the next level by offering moments of connection for the entire family, with a range of menu items for the small and big kids. 

“The Minions are taking over, but not for long, so head into your nearest Macca’s before they’re gone!”

About Illumination’s Despicable Me 4  

In the first Despicable Me movie in seven years, Gru, the world’s favorite supervillain-turned-Anti-Villain League-agent, returns for an exciting, bold new era of Minions mayhem in Illumination’s Despicable Me 4

Following the 2022 blockbuster phenomenon of Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru, which earned almost $1 billion worldwide, the biggest global animated franchise in history now begins a new chapter as Gru (Oscar® nominee Steve Carrell) and Lucy (Oscar® nominee Kristen Wiig) and their girls—Margo (Miranda Cosgrove), Edith (Dana Gaier) and Agnes (Madison Polan)—welcome a new member to the Gru family, Gru Jr., who is intent on tormenting his dad.

Gru faces a new nemesis in Maxime Le Mal (Emmy winner Will Ferrell) and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina (Emmy nominee Sofia Vergara), and the family is forced to go on the run.
