The Chinese government is known for editing foreign movies according  to them.

This time the Chinese government goes for altering the ending instead  of any trimming.

Minions: The Rise of Gru premiered in China with an alternate ending than the original release.

In the Chinese version, the bad guy, Gru goes to prison rather than escaping in the end.

In the original ending, Gru rode off with his co-conspirator Wild Knuckles who successfully faked his death to avoid being captured.

Meanwhile, China censored the ending & replaced it with a series of subtitled still images in the credits sequence

As per Bloomberg, the Chinese version' ending of the film said that Gru was caught after a failed heist & locked  up for 20 years.

The alternate chinese ending says that Gru gave up on being a supervillain, returned to his family and became father of three daughters.

However, the censorship has not gone down well with the viewers, who criticized the alternate ending on the Chinese microblogging website Weibo.

Weibo users criticised the ending & a hashtag referring to it garnered around 1.7 million views.
