‘Despicable Me’s Minions perform ‘Jingle Bells’ – watch

Little yellow fellas put their own spin on the festive classic in a promo for a US cinema chain

Despicable Me‘s Minions put their own distinctive spin on ‘Jingle Bells’ in a new promo clip made for US cinema chain AMC.

The Minions are set to star in their own spin-off movie, simply titled Minions, which opens in UK cinemas on June 26 next year before getting a US release a couple of years later on July 10.

The plot sees minions Stuart, Kevin and Bob recruited as henchmen by a super-villain and her husband, voiced by Sandra Bullock and Jon Hamm, who are hatching a dastardly plan to take over the world. Steve Coogan, Michael Keaton and Allison Janney also lend their voices to the film.

The Minions first appeared in 2010’s computer-animated comedy Despicable Me and last year’s even more successful sequel, Despicable Me 2. Despicable Me 3 is scheduled for release on June 30, 2017.
