After watching it the first time in the theaters, the kids will want to watch it at home. Is Minions: The Rise of Gru on Prime Video?
You’ve likely headed to the movie theaters this weekend to see Minions 2. The kids will have been begging to see the movie, and there’s no way you could say no. After all, who doesn’t love the little yellow sidekicks? Now the kids want to watch it again.
This means waiting for it to come to streaming. Where exactly do you need to go to stream the movie? When will it stream online? Will Minions: The Rise of Gru come to Prime Video?
Minions: The Rise of Gru won’t come to Prime Video
The bad news is that you won’t be able to watch the movie on Prime Video. At least, that’s not the case right away. This is a Universal Pictures movie, and Peacock has the initial streaming rights in 2022.
The movie is heading to Peacock in 45 days. You’ll be able to put it on for the kids on Sunday, Aug. 14.
This doesn’t mean the movie will never head to Prime Video or even Freevee. It’s just that Peacock is the very first streaming platform.
Minions 2 will come to Amazon Video
What about watching it another way on Amazon? Well, there is going to be a Digital release, and that will go to Amazon Instant Video. This will give you the chance to pay once and see the movie added to your Amazon Library.
When will the Digital release happen? We’re looking at sometime around later this month. This has happened with other Universal Pictures releases this year. The change has happened partly due to the pandemic and partly due to the change of streaming platform.
Minions: The Rise of Gru is currently out in theaters.
