Universal Schedules Dispicable Me Spinoff About the Minions for December 19, 2014

We learned last month that, in addition to a direct sequel to Despicable Me, Illumination Entertainment is planning a spinoff centered on the minions. The movie will look to corner the holiday toy market, as Deadline hears that Universal (Illumination’s distribution partner) has scheduled the untitled minions spinoff for December 19, 2014. Not much is known about the movie, other than its focus on the unintelligible-yet-adorable yellow creatures and their interactions with humans, and it will be 3D. Despicable Me directors Pierre Coffin and Chris Renaud are returning to helm both Despicable Me 2 (scheduled for July 3, 2013) and the spinoff. Illumination’s Chris Meledandri and Janet Healy are producing. Hit the jump to watch the minion-centric teaser for Despicable Me 2.

Haven't even seen the first one yet. I'm told I should and that it's really good. I guess I will before this one comes out.

The first one was great! It's so funny, and never gets old. its a good family movie, we watch it all the time.

The first movie was good, the sequel has the potential to be good, but I'm not sure about a spin-off. That sounds like a major cash grab to me, and nothing else.

This sounds stupid. I'm a huge fan of the original movie and absolutely love the minions, even have a little blow up one, and it just doesn't sound appealing at all. Its like "hey lets take the one thing everyone loves, and make a quick movie out of it!"
