New ‘Despicable Me 4’ Popcorn Bucket Gets A Gru-vy Makeover

As Despicable Me 4 gears up for its summer release, fans of the beloved franchise can look forward to not only a new adventure but also a unique collectible item — a popcorn bucket modeled after Gru’s infant son, Gru Jr. This latest addition to the movie merchandising line aims to offer both fun and functionality to moviegoers.

The popcorn bucket, designed to mimic a baby carrier, features Gru Jr., a new character in the series. Equipped with Minions-styled support straps and an adjustable lower buckle, the bucket ensures comfort and ease of carrying. Additionally, it boasts a thermal scarf and extra compartments for additional snack storage, making it a perfect accessory for fans who enjoy munching during the movie.

This new release taps into the current trend of stylised, collectible popcorn buckets that have become popular among movie fans. Recent examples include the suggestive Dune spice collector and the Ghostbusters ghost trap containers, which have been hits at concession stands. The Despicable Me 4 bucket is set to continue this trend, offering a fun and functional way to enjoy popcorn while celebrating a new character from the film.
