Since the dawn of time, Minions have served (and accidentally eliminated) history's most despicable villains. After their latest explosive mistake leaves them without an evil leader, the Minions fall into a deep depression. With the tribe on the brink of collapse, three unlikely heroes -- Kevin, Stuart, and Bob -- embark on a journey to find a new big boss. When their quest leads them to their next potential master, Scarlet Overkill, our three heroes must face their biggest challenge yet: saving all of Minionkind... from annihilation!
