New Release: Despicable Me 4 Now Available on Peacock and Netflix

The latest installment in the beloved Despicable Me franchise, Despicable Me 4, hit theaters on July 3, bringing back the lovable characters of Gru and his mischievous minions for another round of adventures. This time, fans will witness Gru welcoming a new addition to the family, Gru Jr., who is determined to make life difficult for his father. However, their tranquility is short-lived as the notorious criminal mastermind Maxime Le Mal escapes from prison, setting the stage for a thrilling battle of wits and wills between him and Gru.

Released just before the Fourth of July weekend in the United States, Despicable Me 4 is anticipated to be a box office success following a slow start to the year for the film industry. As another animated hit, Disney’s Inside Out 2, currently dominates the box office, fans eagerly await to see where Despicable Me 4 will rank among the top-grossing films of the season.

For those unable to make it to theaters this weekend, there is the option to stream the film at home in the near future. Universal Pictures’ Despicable Me 4 is currently exclusively available in theaters, with its duration on the big screen dependent on its performance and audience reception. Typically, the film’s availability for streaming or home viewing follows its theatrical run, with fan interest and box office success playing a significant role in determining its release timeline.

Despicable Me 4 is expected to become available for streaming on Peacock approximately three to four months after its theatrical debut on July 3. Following the Peacock release, the movie will then transition to Netflix for a specific period before returning to Peacock for exclusive streaming. Fans can also anticipate the film’s availability for digital purchase or rental on platforms like Prime Video and YouTube TV within 45 to 65 days post-theatrical premiere, offering an earlier viewing option before its streaming release.

To prepare for the latest installment, fans can catch up on the entire Despicable Me series, with all three original films available for streaming on Peacock. Additionally, the first Minions movie can be found on Netflix, while Minions: The Rise of Gru is accessible on Prime Video. Short films featuring the Minions are also available on various streaming platforms, providing a comprehensive viewing experience for fans eager to immerse themselves in the world of Gru and his endearing minions.
