It’s hard to believe that we first met the minions 10 years ago. In that time, we’ve seen them accidentally kill dinosaurs, accidentally ruin evil plots, and, well, pretty much just always get in the way since time began.
Maybe they’re not always where they should be, but the sequel to their first solo film shows them right where they belong — on Gru’s side. Watch the trailer below to see the minions as they help a young Gru become a supervillain … or at least attempt to.
In the trailer that was released today, an aspiring Gru interviews to become the newest member of the Vicious Six, an elite group of villains. As they are mocking him for being too young, the entrepreneur steals a precious stone. Gru gives the stone to minion Otto, but in true minion fashion, Otto trades it for a pet rock in the midst of all the chaos.
Now, Gru and his gang need to get the stone back while they evade the angry villains who are after them. The film seems like it will be just as hilarious and quirky as the others, so get ready to watch it a thousand times — whether you want to or not.
Minions: The Rise of Gru will be crashing into theaters on July 3.
