The story of “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 masters—from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.
But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he—alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob—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 Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the world’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.
Ever since the first Despicable Me movie, we already fell in love with the minions. But at the same time we are all left with no clues to how or where they came from. All along we thought they are just random experiments by Gru himself. With the release of this trailer, it is now established that the Minions are creatures that already existed Millions (or even Billions) of years ago. The trailer also tells us that their specie are natural servants. It is embeded on their DNA and they can't their lives without having a master. And that is where the whole premise comes, the Minions search for a new Master.
I'm actually liking this plot. It is better than expected. They are really trying hard to give these suppose to be flat (but funny and entertaining) characters more layers and make them more likeable than ever. Looking forward to see this animation as it premieres next year, July 2015. “Minions” is distributed by United International Pictures through Columbia Pictures.
