The story of the Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable masters of the time. After accidentally killing off many of their masters—from T. rex to Dracula—the Minions find themselves exiled in Antarctica.
But one Minion has a plan. Kevin intends to venture out into the world and find a new evil boss. Joining him on his quest are Stuart and Bob. The trio embarks on their journey, venturing across the world only to wash up on the shores of 1960s New York City.
Kevin, Stuart, and Bob get wind of Villain-Con, a convention where the world’s villains gather annually. There, they meet Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), the first ever female super-villain, and her evil scientist husband, Herb (Golden Globe Award winner Jon Hamm).
Scarlet hires the Minions as her henchmen and charges them with their first mission: to embark on a criminal heist that takes them to London, England.
