What kind of dark secrets are the Minions hiding? Subscribe to our channel for more awesome videos: Minions are everywhere these days, thanks to the success of the Despicable Me films and their own solo adventure which hit theatres in 2016. But despite how popular they are, what do audiences really know about them? Aside from the obvious, there’s actually a whole bunch of information out there. For instance, the original minions were designed in part with the Jawas from Star Wars and the Oompa Loompas from Willy Wonka in mind. But that was after they decided to scrap the orc design. Yup, Minions were originally going to look more like an orc out of Warcraft or the Lord of the Rings films. The Minions have their own evil counterparts too, who are quite literally on the other side of the color spectrum. Unlike original Minions, which evolved over time from a single celled organism, the purple minions were engineered to do their minion duties without fail. Oh, and be bad guys while they’re at it. There are actually 10400 different minions on the poster for Despicable Me 2, all of them unique. That’s a lot of unique variations. But the method behind making them is actually pretty easy thanks to the help of some pre-determined templates. That’s why some Minions look so alike but in actuality, none of them are 100% the same. Oh-and the Minions can actually survive in space. Apparently, their antics would put them in so much harm that they needed to ensure the survival of their species, even in the vacuum of space.Script by: Sean GallagherVoice Over by: Joseph DelaneyEdited by: Hugo AlvesFeaturing:One Minion To Rule Them All | 0:38 Minions, Lots of Minions | 1:43Not All Minions Are Good | 2:50Minion Speak Is Actually A Language | 3:55 Do The Evolution | 5:05From Orc To Minion | 6:09Minion Designs Were Inspired By... | 7:16The Color Of Evil | 8:28One Small Step | 9:36Minions Were Created By Nazis | 10:41Our Social Media: Website
