When I received an invitation to see Minions I was overjoyed! My entire family are Minion fans, I mean, we’re a tad obsessed. I lost count on our minion plush toys and we even have a few minion inspired recipes! We love the little yellow guys. They’re hillarious, silly, cute and super entertaining. There was no doubt that Minions was going to be a hit and honestly, I always like getting a little history lesson on some of our favorite characters from the Despicable Me movies.
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.
The kids thought the movie was hilarious, obviously, but they really liked the story too. Each of the kids had their favorite Minion even though I’m fond of them all. I don’t want to reveal too much but we were left feeling like there will definitely be more of our yellow buddies to come.
Watch this if you’re a super fan:
Go watch this with the whole family. They will be sure to get some great laughs out of it.
