Statement from Chris Meledandri, Founder and CEO of Illumination:
“In response to the severity of the situation in France, we are temporarily closing our Illumination Mac Guff studio in Paris. With this decision we are abiding by the French Government’s guidelines and doing everything possible to slow the spread of the virus as we care for our artists and their families. This means we will be unable to finish MINIONS: THE RISE OF GRU in time for our planned global releases in late June and early July. While we all grapple with the enormity of this crisis, we must put the safety and protection of our employees above all. We look forward to finding a new release date for the return of Gru and the Minions.”

As a child we all grew up thinking that vegetables were green, gross and gruesome. I know my parents couldn’t get me to eat them, even though they tried hard! Now that we’re older and our taste buds have definitely matured, we have started to see the joy in cooking with vegetables. I know I absolutely love them and try to put them in as many dishes as possible. The best part is that you don’t necessarily have to be a vegetarian eat these types of dishes on a regular basis. I am with WW formly Weight Watchers and I still eat everything I love (meat and all) but I see myself adding more and more vegetables to my dishes. There are so many varieties out there you don’t even know! From a pasta salad to a soulful soup, there is so much fun to be had with vibrant vegetables.
