Despicable Me Minions Getting Their Own Movie

Gru?s minions (voiced by JEMAINE CLEMENT) wait for their orders in Universal Pictures and Illumination Entertainment?s inaugural 3-D CGI feature, ?Despicable Me?.  The film tells the story of one of the world?s greatest super-villains, who has just met his greatest challenge in three little girls.

There's already a Despicable Me sequel that's scheduled to come out in 2013, and now it seems there's a third Despicable movie in the pipeline. This one would focus on the little yellow capsule-shaped guys who speak in semi-gibberish — "minions," for those in the know. According to the Wrap, the minions movie is scheduled for release in 2014, so brace yourselves for a huge onslaught of banana tie-ins.
