It's Minion Mayhem With These 10 'Despicable Me' Facts

EDIT
|

At just under $1 billion, ‘Despicable Me 2’ is one of the biggest movies of all-time. It’s the fourth biggest animated film of all-time behind ‘Frozen’, ‘Toy Story 3’ and ‘The Lion King’. Not bad for a supervillain and his little yellow friends! But, if you think you know everything about the fluffy franchise, test your knowledge with the latest installment of You Think You Know Movies! That’s what I am talk-eeng a-bout!

Those lovable Minions (who are getting their own spinoff movie) originally weren’t so lovable. The original design called for big, ugly brutes that would serve more as evil henchmen to Gru before the filmmakers decided they needed to make their hero a little more likable. So, inspired by Willy Wonka’s Oompa Loompa, they came up with a miniaturized design and a fun attitude.

‘You Think You Know Movies?’ is a ScreenCrush original series that dives deep into the cinematic worlds of your favorite movies and freeze frames a few tidbits you might not have known. We’ve already tackled ‘Star Wars,’ ‘The Avengers‘ and ‘Spider-Man,’ but now it’s time to focus our attention on that one movie you just can’t get enough of watching over and over and over (and over…) again.

Assemble the Minions and watch the latest video!
