Minions are yellow henchmen, who have existed since the beginning of beginning, evolving from a yellow single-cell organisms into beings who have only one purpose: to serve the most ambitious villains. 
After accidentally killing off so many of them — from T. rex to Napoleon—the Minions find themselves without a master to serve. They decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica.
 Sometime in the 60s, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so bravest minion (Kevin) and two other volunteers (teenage rebel Stuart and lovable little Bob) set out to find a new one.They arrive at a villain convention, where they compete for the right to be henchmen for Scarlet Overkill (Academy Award® winner Sandra Bullock), a stylish and ambitious villain determined to dominate the world and become the first 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.
