The first official trailer for the Despicable Me spin-off movie, titled Minions, has been posted online, revealing that Gru’s rambunctious henchcreatures actually predated their master. In fact, they actually predated humans as they’re shown to already be at large and looking for someone in charge, during the age of the dinosaurs.
The trailer also shows that the Minions are naturally predisposed towards being underlings, as they’ve sought masters throughout the ages, even going so far as to work under a Tyrannosaurus Rex. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan.
