Minions

Minions (3)

Release Date: 26 June

What is it: A spin off from the Despicable Me franchise chronicling the history of Gru’s lovable sidekicks, The Minions.

Why it could be good: At the back end of last year we were treated to The Penguins of Madagascar, a surprisingly good spin off focusing on the Penguins from the series and their madcap spy adventures. The movie worked because it focused on the groups strengths whilst remaining loyal to the original series, pleasing fans everywhere.

The Minions will be aiming to replicate the success of this and judging from the trailers we have seen so far it looks as though that could be the case.

Why it could be bad: Spin offs have always been a huge risk and if handled wrong can feel like nothing more than quick cash grabs. The Minions are the most popular element of the Despicable Me series and if done wrong this could feel like a studio dragging a joke out longer than it’s needed in an effort to get money out of our pockets.

Here’s everything you need to know about Minions.
