The fifth film in the Despicable Me franchise acts as an origin story for Gru (voiced by Carell) and his Minions, telling the story of how the group came to existence to fight against unstoppable crime forces.

Pilton Palais, the festival’s cinema tent, shared a video on Twitter of Carell’s official announcement.

“Hello, Glastonbury. I’m Steve Carrell, and it is my pleasure to announce that my minions are bringing our new film, Minions: The Rise of Gru, to Glastonbury Festival on Friday 24 June,” he begins.

“Come along to the famous Pilton Palais tent for an extra special screening, and be one of those very first people in the UK to see it. I hope you enjoy the film and have an amazing time.”

Minions: The Rise of Gru releases in cinemas on 1 July.

The UK music festival – which begins tomorrow, 22 June and run until 26 June – recently confirmed The Chemical Brothers as a last-minute addition to the lineup.
