Every Empire Needs its Minions
The Minions first appeared in the 2010 feature film, Despicable Me, where they dutifully served their villainous Master, Felonious Gru, in his attempt to become the greatest super villain of all time by successfully stealing the Earth’s Moon. In the 2013 sequel, Despicable Me 2, the Minions again played a major role, with several of them being mutated into strange purple monsters by the new super villain, El Macho, before ultimately being rescued by the now heroic Gru. Each of these films was a hilarious masterpiece, and a massive success, both critically and commercially—a new animated franchise was born!
The Minions Get Their Own Film
In July, 2015, the Minions became stars in their own right when Illumination Entertainment gave the adorable, yellow, one and two-eyed creatures a spin-off prequel film of their own. This time around we learn of the Minions’ origins and see them adopt the world’s first female super villain, Scarlet Overkill, as their new evil master. But things go awry when the Minions are asked to steal a Royal crown from the Queen of England, and they soon find themselves in a battle to save the British Monarchy. Adventure and hilarity ensue, and the Minions ultimately meet their future master, Gru, in this absolute blockbuster of a film that has since become one of the highest grossing animated features of all time.
