This article is about the 2015 film. For the creatures, see Minions.

Minions is an 3D-computer-animated action-comedy film directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda and starring the Minions. It is a spin-off/prequel of Despicable Me. It is the fifth highest-grossing film of 2015.


Minions are small, yellow pill-like creatures who have existed since the beginning of time (after the earth's ocean was the lava), evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who have only one purpose; to serve history's most despicable masters. After accidentally destroying all their masters, including a Tyrannosaurus Rex, a caveman, an Egyptian Pharaoh, Count Dracula, Blackbeard, and Napoleon Bonaparte, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new civilization in a snowy cave. By 1968, the lack of a master drives them into depression, causing Kevin to set out to find a new master (boss). He is joined by Stuart (who unwittingly was selected) and Bob (due to a lack of volunteers).

And the three of them begin their journey, the heroes walked in the forest, in the field, and already in the ocean and in the end, sailed on a boat.

After they have been sailing the ocean in a boat all day, the tired and get hungry minions see the steak of freedom. It turns out that they are already in New York.

The Minions arrive at New York, where during their stay in Fancy's, they watch TV and they accidentally watch The Saint, then Bewitched, then they find The Dating Game. The programme announces three gentleman named Bob, Kevin, and Stuart (the same names as the minions). Once the winner is about to be announced, the signal goes out. Stuart tries to fix it, but accidentally activated the Villain Network Channel (VNC). They learn about Villain-Con, a villain convention where supervillains from around the world gather, and it will be held in Orlando. They manage to hitch a ride to Orlando, where coincidentally, Walter and Madge Nelson with their children (Walter Jr., Tina, and Binky) drove them were criminals heading to Villain-Con as well. After meeting various supervillains, they become the henchmen for Scarlet Overkill, the world's first female supervillain.

Scarlet takes the Minions to her residence in London, where she instructs the Minions to steal St. Edward's Crown for her, threatening to execute them if they fail in a Bedtime Story she tells them. With the help of Scarlet's husband Herb's weapons, the Minions successfully break into the Tower of London, however the crown has already been delivered to Queen Elizabeth II's palace. The Minions steal the crown from the Queen's carriage, destroying it in the process, while pursued by the police. In the process, Bob crash lands on the mythical Sword in the Stone, where he pulls the sword Excalibur out easily to defend himself. Elizabeth is then removed from the throne, and Bob is crowned as the new King of the United Kingdom and is taken to Buckingham Palace.

Convinced they are traitors, Scarlet confronts and attempts to kill the Minions, then she craves her revenge. Simultaneously, the rest of the Minions in the Cave encounter a few Yetis. The Minions begin to work for the leader of the Yetis and claim him as their new boss, but they accidentally killed the leader yeti, when a minion named Ivan plays the tuba, and are driven out of their cave by the other yetis.

Kevin, Stuart and Bob stay in the royal palace; King Bob rides the stairs, Kevin plays polo with one of the Royal Corgi, and a huge team of Corgis Athletes also plays with him like this, Stewart in the jacuzzi, Bob plays hide and seek with the Butler, a little later the artist draws a portrait for Bob, Kevin plays cricket with the Royal Corgi, Scarlet Overkill finds them and tries to kill them, the Ball for cricket hits Scarlet's face, and Corgi also attacks herself, gets up, boils with anger, she holds Corgi, Who licks her, but Scarlet throws corgi's dog back on the floor in the palace, the artist runs away from the room, Corgi somehow disappears, and after he falls apart and whines. King Bob eventually abdicates in Scarlet's favor, however Scarlet ultimately betrays the Minions, locking them in the palace dungeon where they are to be tortured by Herb, although this backfires due to their unusual shapes and abilities. When Herb goes to attend his wife's coronation, the Minions finally escape with the intention to apologize to Scarlet.

Making their way to Westminster Abbey, the Minions accidentally interrupted Scarlet's coronation by unscrewing a chandelier, which falls and crushes Scarlet before she could be crowned. Scarlet orders the super-villains of the coronation, some of which are super-villains, to execute the Minions. Stuart and Bob are captured while Kevin hides in a bar, where he finds Elizabeth working there. After learning that Scarlet is going to execute Stuart and Bob, Kevin breaks into Herb's laboratory, where he triggers a machine called "The Ultimate Weapon" which turns him into a giant which destroys and wrecks the Overkill residence.

Kevin fights Scarlet during the battle and while Scarlet is distracted by the other minions, Kevin smashes Scarlet through three buildings with one collapsing on her. Kevin manages to save Stuart and Bob but Scarlet wasn't finished with Kevin yet, she fires a lava missile at Kevin, and the minions, Kevin manages to defeat Scarlet Overkill by swallowing the lava missile and as she escapes, Kevin grabs her (with Herb) and as Scarlet goes up in mid-air, Kevin spits the lava missile at Scarlet causing her to nearly get killed and also Kevin gets shrinked back to normal size and his his overalls were still giant sized which he was using them as a parachute.

Elizabeth is once again crowned Queen of the United Kingdom and, in front of a crowd, presents Bob, Stuart, and Kevin with their rewards for saving London from Scarlet Overkill's destruction, each being given a tiny crown, an electric guitar, later replaced by a snow-globe and a knighthood respectively. Scarlet is suddenly revealed to still be alive but very weak and damaged and snatches the Queen's crown with Herb, but they are frozen by a 4 year old Felonius Gru. The Minions see Gru as their new potential boss and chase after him, and that is how the plot will be set up for Minions: The Rise of Gru.

There are two end credits scenes during the movie, one featuring the Minions and Gru (younger). The last one features a Minions cover of the song "Revolution" sung by the Beatles.The End
