VIDEO: Gru and the Minions visit the Boardwalk

Excited parents and children of all ages had a chance to meet and take pictures  their favourite movie characters, Gru and his Minion, Mel, at the Nu Metro Cinema in The Boardwalk Complex, in Summerstrand, Port Elizabeth, as part of the new Despicable Me 3film promotion in South Africa.

The Boardwalk is also hosting a colouring competition and giving out free cold drinks for the children. Clowns can also be seen to keep the children happy and entertained.

South African movie fans have loved these charismatic characters since they made their debut in the first hit animation, Despicable Me.

Illumination Entertainment and Universal Pictures’ worldwide blockbuster Despicable Meintroduced audiences around the globe to the super villain, Gru and his mischievous Minions.

After becoming father to orphans Margo, Edith and Agnes, Gru ultimately gave up his life of crime and turned from Super Bad to Super Dad.

Despicable Me 3 promises audiences plenty of new story, new characters, new plot twists, sibling rivalry and all of this delivered with Illumination’s trade mark sweet and subversive style of comedy.
