Today I continue the countdown to the Minions Movie release on Friday with some trivia! Here’s 10 facts about the minions you might not know.
- The funny little language that they speak is actually called ‘Minionese’.
- The evil minions are purple because it’s on the opposite end of the colour spectrum to yellow.
- When Lucy and Gru are reviewing Paradise Mall shop owners in Despicable Me 2, the owner of Stuff-A-Bear overstuffs a bear and it explodes, making an expectant little boy cry. The boy is the same one that Gru made cry with a popping balloon in the beginning of the first Despicable Me.
- Minions can survive in outer space.
- There are thousands of minions – but they only have five different haircuts.
- Tall minions all have the same hair do.
- Gru must have invested in some dental care for the little fellas – did you notice how their teeth were crooked in Despicable Me but perfectly straight in Despicable Me 2?
- The actors are filmed as they read their parts, so their facial and hand expressions are used on screen. Steve Carell’s wife had fun pointing out the expressions in Gru that reminded her of Steve.
- The minions only have three fingers.
- When Lucy Wilde gives Gru a phone number to reach her, it is clearly visible as 626-584-5723. Calling that number reaches a recording of Kristen Wiig in character, with her outgoing voice mail message.
