    How is Despicable Me on Disney channel? Did Disney buy the rights from Universal or Dreamworks? Makes me wonder if we'll be able to buy minions in WDW soon.

    It also aired on ABC and ABC Family. Disney has some syndication rights from Universal, and Despicable Me happens to be one of them.

    A Despicable Me ride recently opened in Universal Studios Florida, and you can also meet-and-greet characters from the movie if I'm not mistaken. I encourage you all to check it out if you like the movie!

    I assume NBC-Universal owns TV rights since they own the film/home market distribution rights. NBC and Univeral merged of course, same company.

    Disney must've bought the rights to air it. The most surprising part is that Disney would essentially promote the popularity of a rivals money making franchise machine but I guess Disney said the heck with, it'll be just as popular if we DONT air it so might as well join 'em and boost ratings.

    NBC-Universal could've been interested in selling because it's a win for them getting the exposure perhaps and they don't have a "family" channel do they?

    why not?
    Disney Channel makes money from advertizing by showing the movie.
