Watch now: The first trailer for Universal's 'Minions' is released
Despicable Me's unexpected heroes embark on their own adventure
In 2010, the animated film Despicable Me was released, and with it came unlikely stars – the Minions: Unintelligible little yellow creatures who assisted the super-villain 'Gru' and stole the show with their well-meaning, clumsy ways and blue dungarees. Now, they have their own movie and we learn that they have, since the beginning of time, lived on Earth to serve the most despicable master they can find, whether that's an Egyptian Pharoh or a T-Rex.
Fast forward to New York, 1968, and brave Minion Kevin is leading his two friends, hungry Stuart and worrier Bob, to find a new master.
