The Minions Search For Their Master in the First Official Trailer for the Despicable Me Spinoff

Minions(PCM) Universal Pictures captured audiences’ hearts with the hilariously sweet animated 2010 summer hit, Despicable Me, and its loveable minions, the endearingly clumsy assistants of anti-hero Gru.

Finally, Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment have released the first official trailer for Minions, a feature full length animated comedy that tells the origins of the lovable sidekicks and their search for a master.

The trailer features the minions’ arrival to a dinosaur-ruled earth, millions of years ago. Their need for organization and purpose leads them to search for a master to follow. After various fatal mishaps befall their numerous masters throughout history (mostly due to their own bumbling actions), the minions are left without leadership.

Without a master, the minions become listless, too unmotivated to even enjoy the life they’ve built for themselves in the Arctic.

Watch the new trailer below, after the official synopsis from the Minions official Facebook page!

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.
