The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainmentâ€™s Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these mastersâ€”from T. rex to Napoleonâ€”the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and heâ€”alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bobâ€”ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.
The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy AwardÂ® winner Sandra Bullock), the worldâ€™s first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind…from annihilation.
Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the â€™60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illuminationâ€™s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda. Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film.
