What is the Story of the Movie?

Universal says this about the plot of Minions 2: The Rise of Gru:

“Gru grows up in the suburbs during the 1970s when everyone had feathered hair and flared jeans. Gru is a fan of a group of supervillains called the Vicious 6, and he comes up with a plan to become bad enough to join them. He’s lucky that his loyal followers, the Minions, help him cause trouble.”

“Kevin, Stuart, Bob, and Otto, a new Minion with braces and a strong desire to please, use their skills to help Gru build their first hideout, try out their first weapons, and complete their first missions.”

The Plot of Minions 2

Gru, who is 11 years old in 1975, wants to be a supervillain and has hired the Minions to help him. Gru is thrilled when he gets an audition notice from the Vicious 6, a group of supervillains led by Belle Bottom. They want to replace their founder, the supervillain Wild Knuckles, with a new member.

After the Vicious 6 betray them and Knuckles is thought to have died during a heist to steal the Zodiac Stone, a stone connected to the Chinese zodiac, Gru’s interview goes badly, but he manages to steal the stone and escape with Minions Kevin, Stuart, and Bob, giving the stone to another Minion, Otto, to keep it safe.

Gru finds out in his basement lair that Otto traded the stone for a pet rock. This makes him angry, so he fires the Minions and goes alone to find the stone. But Knuckles, who turns out to be alive, kidnaps Gru and takes him to San Francisco.

He then tells the Minions that Gru will be killed if they don’t give him the stone in 48 hours. Kevin, Stuart, and Bob leave for San Francisco to find Gru while Otto goes after a biker who is wearing the stone as a necklace. Kevin, Stuart, and Bob had been looking for the stone but couldn’t find it.

When they get to Knuckles’ house, his goons chase them until Master Chow, a former Kung Fu teacher who now works at an acupuncture clinic, saves them by beating up the goons. They beg her to teach them kung fu, but she finds that they are not good students.

The three of them stop training too soon and go back to Knuckles’ house to save Gru. Otto finds the biker in Death Valley. The biker gives Otto back the stone and takes him to San Francisco.

After Knuckles’ goons left him, Gru and Knuckles became friends. Later, Gru saved Knuckles from being eaten by crocodiles in his pool. Gru wants to learn how to be a bad guy, so the two of them decide to rob the Bank of Evil and get away with the Mona Lisa.

When the Vicious Six find out that Knuckles is still alive during the heist, they destroy his house one night to try to find him. If they don’t do it, Kevin, Stuart, and Bob will follow them to Chinatown. When Knuckles gets back to his destroyed house, he is upset that his friends betrayed him. He decides to stop being a bad guy and sends Gru away.
