Watch how the Minions found New York in Universal’s clip for their upcoming “Despicable Me” spinoff, “Minions.”
Watch Universal Pictures’ newest clip for their upcoming animation “Minions.” The new clip titled “New York” shows how the Minions stumble upon 1968 New York, years before they met up with Gru.
“Minions” will feature the origins of the lovable, funny, cute little yellow henchmen from “Despicable Me.” Dating back from the times where Dinosaurs roamed the earth, starting as single-celled yellow organisms, the minions have evolved throughout the ages, in search and perpetually in service of the most despicable of masters, accidentally killing the likes of a T-rex, an Egyptian pharoah, Napoleon and even Dracula.
Finding a master was easy, but keeping one, that’s where things get tricky. Without a master, they had no purpose, becoming aimless and depressed. If this went on much longer, they will surely perish. Going by many names like Dave, Carl, Norbert, who’s an idiot, the movie feature three exemplary minions: Kevin, who is set to find the biggest baddest villain to be their master; Stuart, who absolutely loves bananas; and Little Bob, who’s scared of their upcoming adventure.
Their journey takes them at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, a stylish and ambitious villain determined to dominate the world and become the first female supervillain. Travelling through Antarctica to 1960s New York City, they end in London, where they must confront a threat to save their minion-kind from annihilation.
“Minions” feature the voices of Sandra Bullock as Scarlet Overkill and Jon Hamm as Herb Overkill, Scarlet's husband and an inventor; Michael Keaton; Allison Janney and Steve Coogan. It is produced by Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healey for Universal Pictures.
