From loud and gigantic T-Rexes to strong and hairy cavemen, and from haughty pharaohs to even the great Napoleon himself, the minuscule banana-yellow creatures known only as the "Minions", exist only to serve the most villainous boss they could get their hands on. However, after a long string of ill-served masters, the well-meaning but utterly inept beings will find themselves without a purpose, as an entire headless tribe must pin their hopes on three little minions, Kevin, Stuart and Bob, to discover the most despicable evil lord. Rumour has it that the infamous international villain and the first woman in the trade, Scarlet Overkill, might be the one they have been looking for all their lives; nevertheless, is she really what the minions have been waiting for?
