In anticipation of the new film – Minions: The Rise of Gru, a second capsule collection between Japanese graphic artist Verdy and the Minions was announced earlier this week.
To celebrate this second collection following the first in 2020, Universal Studios Hollywood hosted the Verdy x Minions Launch Party on June 16th at French Street across from Super Silly Fun Land.
As the event kicked off guests were able to walk on the yellow carpet to take photos and were able to enjoy a variety of appetizers along with fun summer drinks while they also got a sneak preview of the collection.
The collection features a variety of apparel consisting of graphic t-shirts, long-sleeve shirts, hats, and a jacket. Verdy’s signature character, Vick, can be seen alongside Minion’s newest character, Otto, on keychains along with pins, and a skate deck as well.
All through the night, DJ Zack Bia and DJ Vick Okada took the center stage to entertain and play music for the guests. Vicks and a Minion also made a special appearance and hopped onto the yellow carpet to take photos with everyone.
The limited drop is now available at the Super Silly Fun Stuff store at Universal Studios Hollywood while supplies last and will be available at Universal Studios Japan on June 24th. Minions: The Rise of Gru will be released in theaters on July 1st and the collection will launch online that same day.
