The Minions are returning to the big screen later this year. Yay!
During the Universal Pictures presentation at CinemaCon 2016 in Las Vegas, founder and CEO of Illumination Entertainment Chris Meledandri announced that a brand new mini film titled, “Mower Minions” will be screened as an opening feature for “The Secret Life of Pets” when it arrives in cinemas.
“It’s been a year since Minions appeared on movie screens, and will be another year until they show up in Despicable Me 3 next summer. Fans are always asking us for more content with the Minions, so the timing felt right for them to star in an all-new short film right before audiences experience Illumination’s newest original film, “The Secret Life of Pets”, said Meledandri.
According to Peter Sciretta from /FILM, the short animated visual “involves the Minions seeing a product they want to buy during a television commercial. Not having the cash to buy the product, the yellow guys decide to start a lawn mowing business and of course the hijinks they get in should get some laughs from younger audiences.”
It’s only a short film but that’s fine by us. After all, there’s no such thing as too many laughs or too much cuteness in one film, right? :)
“The Secret Life of Pets” arrives in Malaysian theatres on 8th September 2016.
