Minions – Official Information

The story of Minions begins at the dawn of time…

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), 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.

Directed by: Pierre Coffin & Kyle Balda. Writer: Brian Lynch. From Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment.
