‘Minions’, An Animated ‘Despicable Me’ Prequel About Three Minions’ Journey to Find a New Villainous Master

Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment recently released a teaser trailer for Minions, an upcoming animated comedy film and prequel to Despicable Me and Despicable Me 2. It will follow minions Kevin, Bob, and Stuart on their fun-filled journey to find a new villainous master. The film is scheduled to be released in theaters on July 10th, 2015.

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 (Sandra Bullock).
