Here are the best Minions quotes, bringing the beloved little yellow creatures back for another feature film which discusses their backstory and events prior to the Despicable Me films. The animated movie, created by Illumination Entertainment, was directed by Pierre Coffin and Kyle Balda using a screenplay by Brian Lynch. Minions opened in theaters on July 10, 2015.
In Minions, the story of Kevin, Stuart, Bob and the other minions (all voiced by Pierre Coffin) is introduced. For centuries, the minions have followed around various evil masters, including Napoleon, Dracula and even dinosaurs, but they struggle to keep a master alive. Kevin desires to find a master for life and takes Bob and Stuart with him to America to find that master.
When the minions arrive in the states, they travel to Orlando to attend Villain-Con, where they hope to find a new master, with super evil Scarlet Overkill (voiced by Sandra Bullock) in mind. They meet with her and her husband Herb (voiced by Jon Hamm), and soon embark on a mission for her to steal the crown of Queen Elizabeth (voiced by Jennifer Saunders). To say the least, this sends the minions on an adventure of epic proportions.

Narrator: Minions! Minions have been on this planet far longer than we have. They go by many names, Dave, Carl, oh, that one is Norbit. He is an idiot. They all share the same goal: To serve the most despicable master around. Finding a master was easy. Keeping a master, that's where things got tricky, but nonetheless, they kept on looking. Without a master they had no purpose. They became aimless and depressed. If this went on much longer, they would surely perish. Then, one minion stepped forward. Kevin felt pride. He was going to be the one to find his tribe the biggest, baddest villain to serve. Stuart felt hungry, mostly. He was going to be the one to eat this banana, and Bob, Bob was frightened of the journey ahead.The narrator gives a brief overview of the film, which explains the early days of the minions. As he notes, the minions live to serve evil masters, but can't seem to keep one alive for long. This made them sad and inspired Kevin to seek out the ultimate master.
