Minions are small, yellow creatures who have existed since the beginning of time, evolving from single-celled organisms into beings who exist only to serve history's most villainous masters.They find great masters, including a T. Rex, a caveman, an Egyptian pharaoh, Dracula,and Napoleon, but after accidentally killing nearly all of them with their incompetence, they decide to isolate themselves from the world and start a new life in Antarctica.By 1968, the lack of a master drives them into depression, so one minion - Kevin - plans to find a new master. Stuart - a bored, teenaged minion who is obsessed with guitars - joins him reluctantly, as does Bob, whom Kevin only chooses due to a lack of volunteers.
After a long journey, the Minions arrive in New York where they learn about Villain-Con, a convention to be held in Orlando, Florida where supervillains gather from around the world.
