The Minions existed before everything else on the Earth; way before the beginning of time and these yellow-coloured, pill-shaped, odd-looking creatures that developed from a single cell, evolved and made their way directly into our hearts! Although one story states this, the other hints at Felonious Gru making them in his own lab. Well, whatever story they tell us, Minions have become one of the most loved and unforgettable movie characters ever created in films.
Such is their charm that apart from being Gru’s sidekicks in the ‘Despicable Me’ series, the Minions also had a movie all to themselves and what’s more, a sequel to it has also been announced in the coming years. And if that is not enough, Minions are also the official mascots of Illumination Entertainment! They speak a combination of different languages but what they say is gibberish and it doesn’t matter to us as long as these banana-loving creatures keep entertaining us with their movies. Having appeared in four feature films, with various shorts and two sequels in the pipeline, here’s the list of all Minion movies, ranked from worst to best. How many minion movies are there? Answer is below.
4. Despicable Me 3 (2017)
The recent one in the series (since the fourth installment has been announced), released in 2017, ‘Despicable Me 3’ saw Gru mending his ways, and along with his wife Lucy, working for an anti-villain league. When the couple is fired from office for being unable to stop a child-actor-turned-villain from stealing a gem, some of the Minions desert them, while Gru also learns of his long-lost twin Dru. As events unfold, amidst a lot of whacky twists and turns, everything comes back to normal and Gru finally brings situations under control. The film with the lowest ratings on most websites had too much happening in the screenplay all at once, which made it chaotic more than fun. Although it did manage to entertain its target audience – the kids – for its colourful visuals and slapstick proceedings, it failed to amuse the elders.
3. Minions (2015)
