The Minions movie is finally here! Released in cinemas across the UK on June 26th, it’s sure to be popular with kids and adults alike. A spin-off of the successful Despicable Me from 2010 and Despicable Me 2 from 2013, it stars Kevin, Stuart, Bob and the rest of the gang, as well as a couple of new supervillains, Scarlet Overkill and her husband, Herb Overkill.
The film begins millions of years ago and charts the life of the Minions before they worked for Gru, star of the first two films, following their adorable antics along the way.
Take a look at the trailer for a taste of what you can enjoy in the cinema:
