In case you didn't get a chance to see this animated blockbuster in theaters, we have an exclusive bonus features clip which introduces us to the Nelson family.
Minions helped Universal Pictures make box office history this year, by becoming the studio's third movie to crack $1 billion worldwide, following Jurassic World ($1.6 billion) and Furious 7 ($1.5 billion). Minions' success made Universal the first studio to ever have three $1 billion movies in one year. Now fans can relive all of the animated action of Minions at home, along with three new mini-movies.
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. With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes - Kevin, Stuart, and Bob - embark on a journey to find a new big boss.
When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award winner Sandra Bullock), our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind...from annihilation! The trio embark 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. The supporting voice cast includes Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney, Steve Coogan, Jennifer Saunders and Geoffrey Rush.
The Blu-ray and DVD includes three brand new mini-movies, Cro Minion, Competition and Binky Nelson Unpacified. The special features also include a Deleted Scene (Me, Myself and Stuart), an Around the World Interactive Map, where fans can explore the world of the Minions featuring a collection of games, trivia, featurettes, storyboards, and more all themed to movie locations. and Behind the Goggles - The Illumination Story of the Minions, which offers a "behind the googles" look at the history and evolution of everyone's favorite yellow henchmen, along with concept art and photo galleries.
