We were able to get our hands on the official synopsis for Minions, which will hit theaters after Despicable Me 2 (July 3, 2013) on December 19, 2014. Directed by Kyle Balda and Pierre Coffin, the Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment project is described as follows:
The Minions, breakout stars from “Despicable Me,” are presented in an origin story that showcases their unpredictable personality and physicality, and pairs them with equally memorable human characters. As it turns out, Minions have existed since the beginning of time. They have evolved from single (yellow) cell organisms into the familiar beings we know, and they live for a collective purpose: to seek out and serve the most despicable master they can find. Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock will lead the voice cast of the human characters as Scarlett Overkill, the world’s reigning super-villain of the 1960s.
