Despicable Me 2 Minion Mini Movie Sneak Peek


Universal Studios Home Entertainment will be releasing Despicable Me 2 on Blu-Ray, Blu-Ray 3D, DVD, and Digital HD (including UltraViolet) this coming December 10th, and it promises to be a home video release worthy of this year’s worldwide box office phenomenon and number 1 comedy film (the film has grossed over $863 million all over the globe), featuring a ton of bonus content such as deleted scenes, an in-depth look at the evil minions, and 3 all-new mini-movies featuring everybody’s favorite cute, cuddly, and banana-loving Minions.

…and to get you proper excited for the December release, Universal has released a 1 and a half clip titled “Despicable Me 2 Mini-Movie Sneak Peek,” which is exactly as the title suggests: a brief teaser for the upcoming mini-movie included in the Despicable Me 2 home video release. Of course, it features the ever-lovin’ yellow Minions doing what they do best: making you laugh out loud at their hilarious ineptness and naiveté. You can watch the clip below:

Fanimation: John Banana celebrates The Rocketeer 20th anniversary

Fanimation: John Banana celebrates The Rocketeer 20th anniversary

Twenty years ago, Disney brought a classic super hero to the live action big screen: The Rocketeer. Set in the Indiana Jones-friendly WWII era, the Rocketeer was a regular, non super-powered man with two advantages: a rocket jet pack strapped to his back, and an unparalleled amount of bravery to have a rocket jet pack strapped to his back! The result was a flying man, whose helmet (that allowed him to steer) helped give him a very retro Iron Man look. Marvel’s Tony Stark would be proud! Though the film was live action, John Banana decided to take the adventure in a new direction – perfectly suited for CG animation. This fan created animation (aka “Fanimation”) is an astonishing, Pixar-like piece that perfectly immortalizes the Disney icon, celebrating the 20th anniversary of the film.

Despicable Me's Minions and the Despicable Banana

Of all the animated films to hit theaters in the past few years, there are a rare few where the audience is as intrigued by the main characters as they are with the secondary characters. Lion King’s Timon and Pumba are good examples, as are the teams of penguins and monkeys from the Madagascar franchise. Each of those films had so much success with the secondary group that those sub-stars went on to receive their own movies and animated series on TV. Such, it seems could be the fate with Despicable Me – a story that focused on Gru’s maturity from super villain to adoptive father, but never lost sight of those adorable (and evil) Minions. Maybe there’s a toon in there someday, but in the meantime, there’s already a few solo adventures, including the “Banana” mini movie on the Despicable Me Blu-ray and DVD – not to mention “Home Makeover” and “Orientation Day”. Take a look!
