During Universal Pictures’ presentation at CinemaCon, documentary-style footage was shown about the evolution of our lovable minions from the “Despicable Me” franchise. Latino-Review was in attendance to watch the footage.

In this prequel “The Minions,” the footage revealed that they evolved from yellow single-cell organisms in the ocean and finally evolved to be as minions during the time of dinosaurs. The minions are always attracted to the most villainous creatures in order to serve them. However, their villainous masters will meet with some unusual end. Some of the masters include T-Rex, an Egyptian pharaoh, a medieval monarch, Attila the Hun and even Dracula.

But sometime later, they became masterless and lived in the artic to succumb into depression. Three brave minions, Kevin, Bob and Stuart, will set out in a journey to seek out a new diabolical master.

It’s obvious that this is the story in search for Gru (Steve Carell) as their new master villain. But, super-villains of Scarlett and Herb Overkill (Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm) will compete against Gru.

“The Minions” is scheduled for theatrical release on July 10 next year.
