China changes ending of Minions movie

he latest movie in the Despicable Me franchise premiered in China on Friday - albeit with a different ending, as local viewers discovered.

Minions: The Rise of Gru follows antihero Gru in his teenage days and sets up his evolution into a supervillain later in the series.

Warning: There are plot spoilers ahead.

But unlike the original movie, the Chinese version does not end with Gru and his mentor Wild Knuckles riding off into the sunset.

Instead, Wild Knuckles is jailed while Gru "becomes one of the good guys".

Posts and screenshots of the film, shared on Chinese microblogging site Weibo, showed censors had added a series of subtitled still images into the credits sequence.
