Minions are Back in Despicable Me Spin-off + Despicable Me 2 Trailer

Minions get Despicable Me spin-off

For fans of the movie Despicable Me, some good news is on the way: The Minions are making a return!

A spin-off for the movie is in the works, according to Universal Pictures, which announced Tuesday that the film is set for a Dec 19, 2014 release date. The Hollywood Reporter says the film is currently dubbed “Untilted Minions Project.”

No word yet on the plot line, but we know it will focus on the hugely popular, kooky little Minions alongside human characters. The film will be produced by Illumination Entertainment’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy and will be directed by Pierre Coffin. This will be the fifth project in Illumination’s partnership with Universal.

The original movie was a big hit in 2010, bringing in $60.1 million at debut. It was the biggest opening for an original animated movie not from Pixar or DreamWorks Animation.

Meanwhile Despicable Me 2 will hit theatres July 3, 2013.

Watch the minions singing in the trailer below and let us know what you think of the upcoming spin-off.
