Because this is a prequel, it is not necessary to have seen Despicable Me, Despicable Me 2, or Despicable Me 3. The films can provide additional information about Gru or his relationship with the Minions, but they are not required viewing. If you only watch one movie before this one, make it Minions. However, because that film focuses on the Minions rather than Gru, at least until the end, neither is required viewing. All you need to know is that a young Gru used a freeze ray on other villains who were previously the evil masters of the Minions and fled with what they had stolen. The Minions pursued him, deciding he would be their next evil mastermind. Watch free movie Minions The Rise of Gru Afdah online.
