A Full List of all of the Minions Movies and Despicable Me movies

Catch up on all of the Despicable Me and Minion movies, while waiting on the new movie which comes out July 2022.

My eight-year-old loves the Despicable Me movie series. She says the Minions are funny. Who can help but to laugh at their language, which I’ve read is a combination of English, Spanish, and French?

All of the characters in the movie are great, but the Minions truly stole the show. So much so that they ended up with their own movie.

The Despicable Me films are about a supervillain who adopts three girls from an orphanage. The supervillain’s rival steals one of the world’s great wonders. When he learns of the heist, he plans an even greater heist: to shrink and steal something from the Earth.

However, despite villainous intentions, the supervillain grows increasingly touched by the girls’ growing love for him and find himself changing for the better because of it.

The Minions are a numerous group of yellow creatures that appear in the Despicable Me franchise and are characterized by their unique language and childlike behavior.

There are two sequels in the Despicable Me series and a prequel (Minions).
