ABOUT THEMINIONS ANDDESPICABLE ME FRANCHISE
Ten years after their creation, Gru and the Minions are among the most iconic animated characters of their generation. Globally recognized and beloved by fans of all ages, they have propelled Illumination’s Despicable Me into the most successful animated film franchise in history. Gru is one of the few protagonists who is also an antagonist, whose sweet and subversive qualities make him relatable to all audiences. Bright yellow, instantly unforgettable, speaking a language that no one knows but that everyone can understand, the Minions have become icons of self-expression in pop culture on every continent of the globe.
What makes it all the more remarkable is that, technically speaking, the Minions—led by Kevin, Bob and Stuart—are supposed to be the bad guys. Delightfully evil and boldly unapologetic, they are the henchmen of Gru, whose ambition is to become the world’s greatest supervillain. And yet, audiences everywhere cheer for them because these edgy anarchists are operating from a place of unbridled joy—truly doing what they love—and above all, out of a loyalty and devotion to Gru.
Beneath the over-the-top antics and seemingly misguided intentions of the Minions, are themes of loyalty, friendship and an unspoken narrative about the families we choose and devote ourselves to defending. The franchise reflects the idea that whoever you are, or whatever your dreams, you can find your tribe (home) and become a family, no matter how unconventional.
Stepping into a Despicable Me film, audiences know they’re in for an unforgettable experience, full of laughter and surprises and a paradigm shift to an upside-down world in which good is bad and bad is good. The characters in the franchise are a joyful retort to the real world’s conflicts, and a reminder that the best parts of life, no matter your age, usually involve a little mischief. Or maybe even a lot.
