“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.
