While the world awaits DESPICABLE ME 3 to continue the story of the insanely-successful DESPICABLE ME 2, Universal and Illumination are taking things back to the beginning… the dawn of time, but for the purposes of MINIONS (a prequel of sorts to DESPICABLE ME), they’re taking us to 1968 – 42 Years B.G. (Before Gru). I’ve got the first MINIONS trailer for you below, so take a peek – and while you await the July 10, 2015 release of the film, check out #MinionMontage on the social networks to see what the recently-announced MEGA BLOKS Minions are up to. THE ROCK FATHER is one of just seven people helping to launch the new line of toys with some cool sneak-previews!


The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment’s Minions begins at the dawn of time.  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 (Academy Award® winner 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.

Featuring a soundtrack of hit music from the ’60s that still permeates our culture today, Minions is produced by Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy, and is directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda.  Brian Lynch has written the screenplay for the 3D-CG comedy adventure, and Chris Renaud serves as executive producer of the film. www.minionnation.net
