The latest Minion movie, Minions: The Rise of Gru is coming to your screens this January on M-Net 101. There’s going to be fun, adventure, and of course lots of evil plotting. Let’s take a look at these zany and mischievous yellow helpers.

Bob is the smallest of the three main minions. He’s quite a curious chap and is often found fidgeting with something. You would have noticed his favourite toy, Teddy Tim, is with him all the time. Bob is very childlike, but in the new movie, we’ll see a braver side of him.

Stuart is the only minion with one eye and this makes him stand out the most. He loves breaking the rules and seems to have a bigger appetite than the rest as he is often found snacking. This fellow is a big lover of video games and does not like working, so his fellow minions have to motivate him.

The tallest minion of all and the leader of the group, Kevin loves joking around and teasing others. But he is the bravest of the group and loves setting plans in motion. In the new movie, he is one of the main protagonists and even has a hand in tricking young Gru. Oh, we can’t wait!

Fun fact: Actor Pierre Coffin voices all three minions.

Young Gru
Now we certainly could not leave out Gru, the evil mastermind, and leader of the villains. Young Gru is timid but extremely intelligent. He is bullied by his fellow classmates, which drives him to become evil and want to take over the world. Young Gru has dreams of going to the moon. Minions: The Rise of Gru picks off after the 2015 Minions and we get to see what happens after the minions follow an 11-year Gru home and how Gru’s “evil” adventure is born!
