First teased in the ending credits of "Despicable Me 2," the three-minute trailer reveals the origins of the lovable henchmen, 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.

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.
