Gru has some tips for you!

Listen up, everyone! Gru and his minions have some important messages to share with you.

The beloved characters from Illumination's successful film franchise, Despicable Me, were most recently featured in a public service announcement video published by The World Health Organization (WHO). WHO and Illumination along with the United Nations Foundation joined forces to launch the PSA that reinforces safe and healthy practices during these challenging times.

The PSA focuses on lifesaving behaviors to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19, including physical distancing, being active at home and remaining kind to each other —all aimed at making sure people of all ages stay safe and healthy during this pandemic. 

Academy Award® and Emmy Award® nominee Steve Carrell, who voices the character Gru, voices the PSA that will be localised into multiple languages including Spanish, French, Portuguese and Arabic, among others.

Illumination is the first Hollywood Studio to partner with the World Health Organization, the UN Foundation and the COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund in support of health promotion and protection efforts during the pandemic to create an entertaining and educational PSA for global audiences. Participant helped facilitate the collaboration between Illumination to the United Nations Foundation and the World Health Organization.

Elizabeth Cousens, President & CEO of the United Nations Foundation said:

As the world continues to grapple with the challenges of COVID-19, one of our most powerful weapons is kindness.

We are delighted that the Despicable Me characters are letting their love show and showing ways to keep themselves and their communities safe during this unprecedented time.

Gru and his minions are set to hit the big screens again in Minions: The Rise of Gru, the sequel to 2015's Minions.

Minions: The Rise of Gru is slated for release in Singapore on 24 June 2021.
