A few days ago, I saw a list presenting the ten most popular movies in 2022. The list was full of surprises, and one of the biggest surprises was to see Minions: The Rise of Gru as the sixth most popular movie in 2022. Didn’t you watch the movie at the cinema? Have you been waiting for Minions: The Rise of Gru to come to Netflix? The wait is over… at least for some!
There is something about the Minions that make us all love them. Of course, some people hate them and find them annoying, but most of us do love them. They are cute, funny, stupid, and intelligent at the same time. It is also interesting how adults also laugh while watching these movies, making it a nice experience for adults and kids.
I was one of many who watched Minions: The Rise of Gru in the cinema, and I laughed and had a fantastic time. Even though many of the best jokes were shared in the trailer (which I had seen several times before), the movie still surprised me. Even thinking about the movie right now makes me smile. If I close my eyes, I still see the tiny minion handing out peanuts, one by one, to the passengers on the plane as they travel to San Francisco to save Gru.
Are you ready to watch Minions: The Rise of Gru on Netflix? How can it be done?
Minions: The Rise of Gru on Netflix.
I have one good and one bad news for you. Which one do you want first? Let me share them both at the same time.
Minions: The Rise of Gru is on Netflix in Australia.
Now you might ask me why that is good and bad news simultaneously. Let me explain.
It is bad news because this movie is only on Netflix in another country than yours. As a result, if you launch your Netflix application and search for the movie, you cannot find it. That isn’t very pleasant, especially if you have been waiting for the movie to come to Netflix for a long time.
The good news is that the movie is on Netflix in Australia. Why is that good news? If you follow the instructions below, you will soon be capable of streaming all the content on Australian Netflix, including Minions: The Rise of Gru.
Watch the movie on Australian Netflix.
If you have an active Netflix subscription, watching content on Australian Netflix is possible even though you are elsewhere in the world. You need two things for this to work.
- An IP address in Australia.
- An IP address in Australia that Netflix doesn’t block.
What’s the point? It is quite easy to acquire an Australian IP address using VPN services such as IPVanish, HideMyAss, StrongVPN, Private Internet Access, and others. However, an Australian IP address in itself isn’t enough. You need an IP address that Netflix Australia doesn’t block. Which VPN should you use? Surfshark!
Surfshark is the best VPN for Australian Netflix and Netflix content in nearly 20 other countries. It is very easy to use and is among the cheapest VPNs on the market, especially if you purchase a two-year subscription. A subscription can be used on an unlimited number of devices simultaneously, and Surfshark has applications for Windows, Macintosh, FireTV, Android, iOS, Linux, and other platforms. You can also install the Surfshark extension for Chrome, Firefox, or Edge and run the VPN in your browser.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network. It is a tool used by millions daily for different reasons. The most common reason for using a VPN is online protection and security. As you connect to a VPN server, all your traffic is encrypted and sent through the server. This will hide your activities from people spying on you and hinder people from stealing data you send and receive online. Many use a VPN to connect to the internal network at their office while working from home, while journalists use it to access websites and social media sites while reporting from countries where services and websites are blocked.
Are you ready to watch Minions: The Rise of Gru on Netflix?
- Purchase a Surfshark subscription and download the VPN application to your iPhone, iPad, Android device, Windows computer, Macintosh, or other devices.
- Install the VPN application and connect to a server in Australia.
- Visit the Netflix website and watch Minions: The Rise of Gru on Netflix.
Following these instructions, you can now stream this fantastic movie on Netflix in Australia. When you are finished, look around and discover other fantastic content on Netflix in Australia. Have you done that already? Connect to Surfshark servers in Japan, Canada, the USA, Mexico, Sweden, Italy, Germany, France, and other countries, and look at the fantastic Netflix content available in those countries.
What is Minions: Rise of Gru about?
We meet Gru as a kid. He isn’t a bad guy, but he dreams of becoming a master of evil. The masterminds of evil just got an opening, and Gru applies for the spot. He feels like the Minions stand in the way between him and his success, thus causing trouble for the friendship between them.
The interview doesn’t go as planned, but Gru manages to trick the evil masterminds. That doesn’t end well, and he is taken captive and taken to San Francisco. Even though he hurt his friends (the Minions), they are immediately ready to rescue their hero.
The story might sound typical, but it is amusing and entertaining, and you can look forward to streaming this movie on Netflix.
Which were the other top movies in 2022?
I mentioned that Minions: The Rise of Gru was on the top ten list of movies in 2022. Here you have the complete list.
- Top Gun: Maverick
- Avatar: The Way of Water.
- Black Panther: Wakanda Forever.
- Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness
- Jurassic World: Dominion.
- Minions: The Rise of Gru.
- The Batman
- Thor: Love and Thunder.
- Sonic the Hedgehog.
- Black Adam.
There you have the list. Honestly, I was surprised to see Minions: The Rise of Gru on the list. But when I discovered Sonic the Hedgehog was on the list, I was more surprised. What does a movie like that do on a list of the top movies in 2022?
I should add that Avatar: The Way of Water was released just before Christmas, meaning it would probably be at the top of the list had it been released earlier. Still, Tom Cruise did great with his return in Top Gun: Maverick. The only remaining question is whether they will end the story there or if they feel forced to make a new Top Gun movie based on the success of Top Gun: Maverick.
