This holiday season, we’re having a lots of Family Movie Nights. One of those nights will include Despicable Me 3 and holiday fun! My kids cannot wait. They’ve already seen this exciting and fun movie in the theater, but my husband and I have not. We can’t wait to enjoy this great movie together this Christmas break.
About Merry Minions Holiday Program
Universal Pictures Home Entertainment and the Boys & Girls Clubs of America are teaming up for a “Merry Minions” Holiday Program, a joint venture designed to celebrate the season with help from the home entertainment release of Despicable Me 3— the biggest animated film of the year presented by Illumination and UPHE — and the iconic Minions. Despicable Me 3 has grossed over $1 billion at the global box office and is available now on Digital, Blu-ray™, DVD, On Demand and 4K Ultra HD.
In keeping with the holiday spirit, the “Merry Minions” Holiday Program is intended to engage Boys & Girls Club members through fun Minion-themed activities that encourage friendship, teamwork, leadership and creativity. Participating Clubs in select markets— including New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Dallas, Seattle, and others —will receive unique “Merry Minions” holiday kits containing a variety of Despicable Me 3 party, baking and craft items to help spread the holiday cheer.
During the month of December, Boys & Girls Club kids will work together to create holiday ornaments or gift items, decorate baked goods, design artwork inspired by the Minions, hold Minion-themed screening parties, and more. Group activities using the “Merry Minions” holiday kit elements are intended to foster the BGCA’s mission of teaching youths to be productive, caring and cooperative, themes also reflected in Despicable Me 3 and ideal for the holiday season. Clubs will have the opportunity to turn activities into fundraising events, community service projects, opportunities for volunteer support functions, gift-giving and mentoring/teaching lessons for youths.
Boys & Girls Clubs of America, Illumination, and Universal Pictures Home Entertainment are committed to helping America’s youth shape their futures and celebrate the holiday season through the spirit of giving.

About Despicable Me 3
The characters beloved by everyone – Gru, his wife Lucy, their three adorable daughters—Margo, Edith and Agnes—and the Minions are back in this heartwarmingly subversive comedy. After he is fired from the Anti-Villain League for failing to take down Balthazar Bratt, the latest evil mastermind to threaten humanity, Gru finds himself in the midst of a major identity crisis. But when a mysterious stranger informs Gru that he has a long-lost twin brother — a brother who desperately wishes to follow in his twin’s despicable footsteps — the former super-villain rediscovers just how good it feels to be bad. Featuring the voice talents of Steve Carell, Kristen Wiig, Miranda Cosgrove, Steve Coogan, Jenny Slate, Dana Gaier and legendary actress Julie Andrews, Despicable Me 3 is the #1 animated film of the year and the latest chapter in the biggest animated franchise in the world.
