While fans will have to wait three more years for Despicable Me 3 to hit theaters, the Minions spin-off will be released next July, and you can get your first look with the new trailer and photos.

The story of Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment's Minions begins at the dawn of time. Starting as single-celled yellow organisms, Minions evolve through the ages, perpetually serving the most despicable of masters. Continuously unsuccessful at keeping these masters - from T. rex to Napoleon - the Minions find themselves without someone to serve and fall into a deep depression.

But one Minion named Kevin has a plan, and he - alongside teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob - ventures out into the world to find a new evil boss for his brethren to follow.

The trio embarks upon a thrilling journey that ultimately leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), the world's first-ever female super-villain. They travel from frigid Antarctica to 1960s New York City, ending in mod London, where they must face their biggest challenge to date: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation.

If that wasn't enough, we also have new photos from this animated adventure from directors Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda, which co-stars voice actors Jon Hamm, Hiroyuki Sanada, Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud, arriving in theaters July 10, 2015.
