“Despicable Me 4” Now in Theaters: Streaming Details Revealed

Universal Pictures’ “Despicable Me 4” has officially hit theaters worldwide, continuing the beloved franchise that has captivated audiences for years.

For those eager to know when they can watch the film from the comfort of their homes on Peacock and Netflix, here’s what you need to know.

As the sixth installment in the franchise, “Despicable Me 4” follows the successful 2022 spinoff “Minions: The Rise of Gru,” which grossed nearly $1 billion globally.

This new chapter continues the adventures of Gru, Lucy, and their daughters Margo, Edith, and Agnes as they welcome a new family member, Gru Jr. The plot thickens as Gru faces a new nemesis, Maxime Le Mal, and his femme fatale girlfriend Valentina. The family is forced to go on the run, but complications arise when their new neighbor, Poppy, recognizes Gru.

Steve Carrell, who reprises his role as Gru, shared his enthusiasm for the new character Poppy in an interview with Screen Rant. “Poppy is one of my favorite characters ever,” Carrell said. “She is this neighbor girl, in this new town they move to, and she is a monster.

Gru is terrified, but he loves it. He always pretends that he doesn’t love something, but he secretly does. And this is one of those times. Let’s pull a heist. That’s right up his alley. He loves it. That sequence is a lot of fun.”

The film boasts a star-studded voice cast, including returning favorites Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Pierre Coffin, Dana Gaier, and Madison Polan. New additions to the ensemble include Joey King, Sofia Vergara, Chloe Fineman, and Chris Renaud, adding even more talent to the animated adventure.

For fans who can’t make it to theaters or those who want to enjoy the film again, “Despicable Me 4” will eventually be available for streaming. While an exact date has not been confirmed, it’s expected that the film will be released on Peacock and Netflix a few months after its theatrical run, following the typical release pattern for Universal Pictures’ films.

In the meantime, head to the nearest theater to catch the latest escapades of Gru and his family in “Despicable Me 4.”
