What the film is about and what are the origins of the Minions

In the film we will follow the adventures of Gru as a teenager, who will try to enter a supergroup of villains, the Evil 6. Together with Bob, Stuart and the other Minions, Gru will try to prove he is bad enough to be able to be up to the task and join the team. Clearly unexpected and misunderstandings will be around the corner ... with the relative laughter!

The debut of the Minions, these yellow characters, almost a cross between beans and pills, took place in the first film of the series: Despicable Me of 2010. Although born as side figures, the henchmen (this is the literal meaning of the term minions) of Cranes were immediately a great success, among the public of the little ones and not only. Their particular speech was devised by putting together several words from various languages ​​of the world and completely invented words.

In short, the cute Minions are now become a true cinematic powerhouse and we can say that from today Gru as well as being very bad is certainly very rich!
