China Changes Ending Of Minions: The Rise of Gru
The modifications, not found in the original version of the film, indicate that the police managed to arrest Will Carnage, who represents the character of the villain in the work, and put him in prison, making him a good person.
No changes were made to the animated film’s scenes, but a set of still shots and commentary were included at the end. In the original version of the movie, the puppy’s teacher, Wild Knuckles, escapes justice after an attempted robbery by pretending to be dead.
But in the version shown in China, Knuckles was arrested by the police and sentenced to 20 years in prison. The punishment led to a reform of his behavior, so he continued his “passion for acting” by “creating a theater group,” according to the text included at the end of the film.
As for Gru, he becomes a model parent and is “back on the right track”, according to the alternate ending, unlike in previous films in the series.
It was not immediately clear whether the ending of “Minions” in China was modified at the behest of the censors or the film’s producers. Some producers, on their own, sometimes delete scenes from their work in order to obtain approval for broadcast in the Chinese market.
And “Minions” is not the first foreign film that the committee has modified to make it compatible with Chinese values, especially with regard to works directed at young people and young people.
