Synopsis released for Despicable Me spin-off, Minions
They're small, they're yellow, they're wacky, they've got their own spin-off movie. It's the Minions...
It's safe to say that the Minions were far and away the most popular characters from the first Despicable Me movie and with the release of the sequel no doubt boost their popularity further. And, as was revealed last year, plans are advanced for a spin-off movie all about the Minions. It's set for release on December 19th 2014, and a synopsis has been released to give us a clue what to expect.
"The Minions, breakout stars from Despicable Me, are presented in an origin story that showcases their unpredictable personality and physicality, and pairs them with equally memorable human characters. As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of characters as Scarlett Overkill, the worlds reigning super-villain of the 1960s".
The most despicable master they can find since the beginning of time? That could see Minions treading some not very family friendly ground. More on it as we hear it. In the meantime, here's our review of their latest appearance, in Despicable Me 2.
